The ultimate arena rock anthem

Fantastic handwritten lyrics to "We Will Rock You" by Queen guitarist Brian May, two pages, 8.25 x 11.75, boldly penned in black felt tip and signed at the conclusion, "Brian, 2010." The lyrics, in full: "Buddy you’re a boy make a big noise / Playin' in the street / gonna be a big man someday / You got mud on yo' face / You big disgrace / Kickin' your can all over the place / singin' / We will we will rock you / Buddy you’re a young man hard man / Fightin' in the street / Gonna take on the world someday / You got blood on yo' face / You big disgrace / Waving that banner all over the place… / WWWWRY etc. / Buddy you’re an old man poor man / Pleadin' with your eyes / gonna make you some peace someday / You got mud on yo' face / You big disgrace / Somebody better put you back into your place / We will We will…Rock You!" Matted and framed with an information card indicating that the lyrics were donated by May to PRS for Music's Art of the Song 2010 in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust, to an overall size of 22.25 x 18. In fine condition. 'We Will Rock You' was written by May for Queen's best-selling 1977 album News of the World, and released as the B-side to the 'We Are the Champions' single. Both songs are typically played on the radio together without interruption, and the pair have become fan-favorite staples in sporting arenas across the world. A highly desirable set of handwritten lyrics for one of Queen's most recognizable hits.
