Seven Seas of Rhye
Queen Lyrics


Fear me you lords and lady preachers
I descend upon your earth from the skies
I command your very souls you unbelievers
Bring before me what is mine
The seven seas of rhye

Can you hear me you peers and privvy counsellors
I stand before you naked to the eyes
I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust
I swear that you'll be mine
The seven seas of rhye

Sister I live and lie for you
Mister do and I'll die
You are mine I possess you
I belong to you forever

Storm the master marathon I'll fly through
By flash and thunder fire I'll survive
Then I'll defy the laws of nature and come out alive
Then I'll get you

Be gone with you, you shod and shady senators
Give out the good, leave out the bad evil cries
I challenge the mighty titan and his troubadours
And with a smile
I'll take you to the seven seas of rhye

@AntEart no just that he was a sensitive man who like Brian May cared about people and their history.

The album was influenced by heavy metal and progressive rock.

The lyrics are based on a variety of topics, including folklore ("My Fairy King") and religion ("Jesus").
Freddie Mercury loved History and reading and it is evident in his lyrics even "War of the Worlds" started by Orson Welles and Freddie influenced naming the Band "Queen"!

He and Brian were very creative writers and composers. And knew History.

Freddie Mercury wrote five of the ten tracks, lead guitarist Brian May wrote four songs (including "Doing All Right", which he co-wrote with his Smile bandmate Tim Staffell), and drummer Roger Taylor both wrote and sang "Modern Times Rock and Roll". The final song on the album is a short instrumental version of "Seven Seas of Rhye", the full version of which would appear on the band's second album, Queen II.



Marilyn LeVeque

Freddie's song Seven Seas of Rhye is about his and his SISTER'S imaginary play place when he was younger and home from school. He was born 1946 and Kashmira was born in 1952 she 6 years younger. So likely when she was 4-5 and Freddie was 10-11 he played make believe with her like all big brothers before he started boarding school in India.

Their histories.

Freddie Mercury (born Farrokh Bulsara; 5 September 1946 – 24 November 1991) was a British singer, songwriter, record producer, and lead vocalist of the rock band Queen.

Regarded as one of the greatest singers in the history of rock music, he was known for his flamboyant stage persona and four-octave vocal range.

Mercury defied the conventions of a rock frontman, with his highly theatrical style influencing the artistic direction of Queen.

He put their play time in a great song. Great imagination.



Harmony Ferrington

Lets be honest..




This song is SO under rated but SOOOOO AMAZING!!


All Queen songs are amazing, but this one is so beautiful (once again, like all Queen songs)
But I can't stop listening to my Queen's <3


R.I.P Freddie Mercury/ Farrokh Bulsara. You are greatly missed, and still known as my, and our Queen forever <3

Especially when it was their first single to ever chart!
Their first tv appearance
But wasn't important to inc?
Uk no 10 in 74
Later in the year Freddie had his second hit with killer Queen at no 2 uk
Again tv appearance
I feel they're playing down a lot of Freddie achievements and contributions
I saw a clip of killer Queen from the film
Just Freddie being a diva and 'above the waist'
Wtf?



bluebell

This was recorded after that
71 they were making a demo in de lane lea studio for sound testing their studios

Seven seas was partially recorded for their first album released in 73 recorded 72
Full song on the next album released 74
It was their first single to be on the top ten uk
Same year another Freddie song killer queen off their third album got to no 2 uk

Is no one gonna talk about how Roger nailed the vocals AND still rocks the drum perfectly?

Dave Hornsby

Best drum intro

•MattPlayzRoblox•

Its edited they just tracked there sounds and the backround singers aka Roger And Brian and Deacon. They made the voice echo and the guitar echo. And just fixed the mistakes that they made

April Simkins

They are all so perfect together. Harmonies, backing vocals, all so tight.

Heinrich Goedhals

Fun fact: ”Seven seas of rhye” is a Freddie’s and her sister Kashimira’s imaginary place where they played when they were young. So Freddie did this kind of to his sister.🎤🕊
