I Want It All
Queen Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Adventure seeker on an empty street
Just an alley creeper, light on his feet
A young fighter screaming, with no time for doubt
With the pain and anger can't see a way out
It ain't much I'm asking, I heard him say
Gotta find me a future move out of my way
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now

Listen all you people, come gather round
I gotta get me a game plan, gotta shake you to the ground
But just give me, huh, what I know is mine
People do you hear me, just gimme the sign
It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Here's to the future for the dreams of youth

I want it all (give it all I want it all)
I want it all (yeah)
I want it all and I want it now

I want it all (yes I want it all)
I want it all hey
I want it all and I want it now

I'm a man with a one track mind
So much to do in one lifetime (people do you hear me)
Not a man for compromise and where's and why's and living lies
So I'm living it all, yes I'm living it all
And I'm giving it all, and I'm giving it all
Oh oh yeah yeah ha ha ha ha ha
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
I want it all

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Here's to the future
Hear the cry of youth (hear the cry of youth) (hear the cry of youth)
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all and I want it now

I want it all yeah yeah yeah
I want it all, I want it all and I want it now
Oh oh oh oh oh

And I want it (now)




I want it, I want it
Oh ha

The use of strong imagery and figurative language is notable throughout the song. "Adventure seeker on an empty street," "alley creeper light on his feet," and "young fighter screaming with no time for doubt" all paint a picture of a person who is strong and focused on success. The repetition of "I want it all, and I want it now" reinforces the idea that this person is not waiting for opportunities to come to them, but actively seeking and pursuing opportunities.


The lyrics also suggest that this individual is looking for support in achieving their goals, as seen in the lines "But just give me, huh, what I know is mine / People do you hear me, just gimme the sign." The use of rhetorical questions and the repeated phrase "People do you hear me" speaks to the urgency and desperation felt by the young fighter.


Overall, the song speaks to the universal desire to achieve success, but also highlights the struggles and sacrifices that come with pursuing one's dreams.
