Spread Your Wings

  • Biografia

Spread Your Wings es una canción realizada como sencillo por la banda de Rock inglesa Queen, extraido del álbum News of the World y escrita por el bajista John Deacon, la canción tuvo algo de popularidad entre los fans de la banda.

Muchas personas pensaron que el piano del inicio lo tocaba el mismo John porque así se veía en el video, pero en realidad quien se encarga del piano y la voz es Freddie Mercury, Brian May guitarra y Roger Taylor batería.

La canción describe a un joven llamado Sammy que trabajaba limpiando el piso en el "Emerald Bar", y la canción trata de apoyarlo para que salga adelante diciendole: "Spread your wings and fly away, fly away far away"...(abre tus alas y vuela, vuela muy lejos).

La canción acompañó el repertorio en vivo de la banda entre 1977 hasta 1979. Aparece en el album Live Killers.

  • Letra

Sammy was low
Just watching the show
Over and over again
Knew it was time
He'd made up his mind
To leave his dead life behind
His boss said to him
'Boy you'd better begin
To get those crazy notions right out of your head
Sammy who do you think that you are?
You should've been sweeping up the Emerald bar'

Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Pull yourself together
'Cos you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man

He spends his evenings alone in his hotel room
Keeping his thoughts to himself he'd be leaving soon
Wishing he was miles and miles away
Nothing in this world nothing would make him stay

Since he was small
Had no luck at all
Nothing came easy to him
Now it was time
He'd made up his mind
'This could be my last chance'

His boss said to him 'now listen boy
You're always dreaming
You've got no real ambition you won't get very far
Sammy boy don't you know who you are?
Why can't you be happy at the Emerald bar?'

So honey
Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away far away
Pull yourself together
'Cos you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man
Come on honey.
