  • Here I stand (here I stand)
    Look around around around around around
    But you won't see me (but you won't see me)

    Now I'm here (now I'm here)
    Now I'm there (now I'm there)
    I'm just a
    Just a new man
    Yes you made me live again, wow

    A baby I was when you took my hand
    And the light of the night burned bright
    The people all stared didn't understand
    But you knew my name on sight

    Ooh whatever came of you and me
    America's new bride to be, ooh, don't worry baby I'm safe and sound

    Down in the dungeon just peaches 'n' me

    Don't I love her so
    Yes you made me live again, yeah

    Yeah, ooh, a thin moon me in a smoke-screen sky
    Where the beams of your lovelight chase
    Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain
    With the rain running down my face

    Your matches still light up the sky
    And many a tear lives on in my eye

    Down in the city just Hoople 'n' me
    Don't I love him so
    Ooh, don't I love him so

    Whatever comes of you and me
    I love to leave my memory with you

    Now I'm here (now I'm here)
    Think I'll stay around around around around around around
    Down in the city justa you 'n' me (down in the city justa you 'n' me)
    Don't I love you so
    Go, go, go, little Queenie Writer/s: Brian May

  • AnonymousAnd " Peaches" was Brian May's mistress at that time.
  • Thomas from Marion, InDuring several of their live shows, Freddie Mercury uses this time to interact with the audience. Freddie sings and the audience mimics exactly what he sings.
  • Joe from , MoThe best version of this song was recorded live at Wembley Stadium '86!
  • Ryan from Eaton, InThe song is a (slightly surreal, slightly abstract) recounting of their tour of the US supporting Mott the Hoople.
  • Jeremy from Ventura, CaI wrote a song roughly based of this, called "And Here I Stand".

    Queen is one of my all time favs
  • Paul from Rothesay, Nb, CanadaLove this Queen classic from "Sheer Heart Attack". The line "Down in the city, just Hoople and me" is a shout out to Mott The Hoople. The two bands once toured together. The final line "Go, go, go Little Queenie" pays tribute to the great Chuck Berry classic.
