Charted: 21
  • Every drop of rain that falls in Sahara Desert says it all
    It's a miracle
    All God's creations great and small, the Golden Gate and the Taj Mahal
    That's a miracle
    Test tube babies being born, mothers, fathers dead and gone
    It's a miracle
    We're having a miracle on Earth, mother nature does it all for us
    The wonders of this world go on, the Hanging Gardens of Babylon
    Captain Cook and Cain and Abel, Jimi Hendrix to the Tower of Babel
    It's a miracle, it's a miracle, it's a miracle (it's a miracle)

    It's a miracle
    The one thing we're all waiting for, is peace on Earth and end to war
    It's a miracle we need, the miracle
    The miracle we're all waiting for today

    If every leaf on every tree, could tell a story that would be a miracle
    If every child on every street, had clothes to wear and food to eat
    That's a miracle
    If all God's people could be free, to live in perfect harmony
    It's a miracle (we're having a miracle on Earth)
    Mother nature does it all for us

    Open hearts and surgery, Sunday mornings with a cup of tea
    Super powers always fighting
    But Mona Lisa just keeps on smiling
    It's a miracle, it's a miracle, it's a miracle

    (The wonders of this world go on)

    Well it's a miracle, it's a miracle (it's a miracle)
    It's a miracle
    The one thing (the one thing)
    We're all waiting for (we're all waiting for)
    Is peace on Earth (peace on Earth) and an end to war (end to war)
    It's a miracle we need, the miracle

    (The miracle)
    Peace on Earth and end to war today

    That time will come one day you'll see when we can all be friends
    That time will come one day you'll see when we can all be friends
    That time will come one day you'll see when we can all be friends
    That time will come one day you'll see when we can all be friends Writer/s: Brian May, Freddie Mercury, John Deacon, Roger Taylor

  • Erling from Lillehammer, Norway I wonder what the young queen-members looks like now. Great music video though!
  • Maristella from PhilippinesThe Miracle is a lovely song with an exceptional music video. The lyrics are wonderfully put together and really shows just how brilliant Queen is. The song is full of idealism and optimism, but hey, who doesn't want a better world for everyone? The kid versions of the band did a fantastic job! Freddie is noticeably thinner here but still his dashing self. I specially liked that tender moment he put his arm on the boy's shoulders (4:39). My admiration and respect for Queen grows every time I hear great songs like this. Queen never ceases to amaze me.
  • Jfv from Philadelphia, PaThe greek word for "wonder", which is "thaumata" is more literally translated as "miracle". The song's second verse references the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
  • Mary from Rochester, MnIt has a really cool music video, too. Look-a-like kids play the four band members.
  • Ryan from Eaton, InThe synth-bass line that serves as an intro to the bridge is the same bass line intro to Freddie's "Let's Turn It On" from his 'Mr Bad Guy' album.
  • Matt from Pinetown, South AfricaThe Golden Gate they refer to, is it the bridge in San Francisco, of the Golden Gate mountain range in the Orange Free State of South Africa? (the latter is better...)
  • Alex from Midland, MiCool song. This was realeaed in 1989, and was first heard in a tour.
  • Alex from Midland, MiI like this song, it is so cool, thought princes of the unoverse from queen is better.
