If You Can't Beat Them
Queen Lyrics


Keep your chin up when you're feelin' lonely
Don't let them get you down
Ain't no use in your sitting all alone
Hangin' around for someone to call
Ooh they won't come knocking at all
Don't run and hide
Even if it hurts you inside
So I said
Give as good as you get
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
You'd better do it
'Cause it makes you feel good
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
You're never gonna help yourself

Come on
Get up
You're feelin' good

Keep your fingers off my money
Don't try and pull me down
You're takin' me out to wine and dine me
Tryin' to wind me 'round and around
Invite me to your little contract Ha! Ha!
Rumor has it that you could play dirty
I'll tell you what I'll do about that
I'm playing at the wrong game yeah!

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
You'd better do it
'Cause it makes you feel good
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
You're never gonna help yourself

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
You'd better do it
'Cause it makes you feel good
If you can't beat 'em, join 'em
It's everyone for themselves
Move on out

Deacon always wrote the best feel good songs!

Giovanni Gobbi

@fui plu You got me wrong. The guy was saying that the lyrics were cruel because they were a dissing. He wasn't saying that they were bad. Me neither. I love that song, I was just saying that it is a revenge song

@Giovanni Gobbi he wrote so many hits...Odd lyrics or not...it worked anyway

Giovanni Gobbi

@fui plu It's a very odd lyric for John, it's his DOTL

One of the reason why Freddie and John is so close. They have the same taste in music

Lucia Elias

I know 'fans' that hate John, they say John means nothing in Queen and I just can't believe them. If you laugh about John is because you're a fake fan. John is amazing.
