Under pressure



“Under Pressure” by Queen

Mm ba ba de
Um bum ba de
Um bu bu bum da de (just sounds with no meaning)

Pressure pushing down on me
Pressing down on you, no man ask for
Under pressure - that burns a building down
Splits (divides) a family in two
Puts people on streets (makes people homeless)

Um ba ba be
Um ba ba be
De day da
Ee day da

It’s the terror (being very scared) of knowing what the world is about
Watching some good friends screaming, ‘Let me out’
Pray (communicating with a god) tomorrow - gets me higher
Pressure on people - people on streets

Day day de mm hm
Da da da ba ba
O.K.

Chippin’ around (going around (not used in American English)) - kick my brains (the organ in your head that allows you to think) around the floor
These are the days it never rains but it pours (rains very hard)

Ee do ba be
Ee da ba ba ba
Um bo bo
Be lap

People on streets - ee da de da de
People on streets - ee da de da de da de da
It’s the terror of knowing what this world is about
Watching some good friends screaming, ‘Let me out’
Pray tomorrow - gets me higher high high
Pressure on people - people on streets

Turned away from it all like a blind (unable to see) man
Sat on a fence (not supporting one side or another; being neutral) but it don’t work
Keep coming up with love but it’s so slashed (cut into pieces with a knife) and torn
Why - why - why ?
Love love love love love
Insanity (craziness; mental illness) laughs under pressure - we’re cracking (breaking into small pieces; becoming emotionally unstable)

Can’t we give ourselves one more chance
Why can’t we give love that one more chance
Why can’t we give love give love give love give love
give love give love give love give love give love

‘Cause (because) love’s such an old-fashioned (traditional; not modern) word
And love dares you (asks that you have courage) to care for the people on the edge of the night
And love dares you to change our way of caring about ourselves
This is our last dance
This is our last dance
This is ourselves
Under pressure
Under pressure
Pressure
