Seven Seas Of Rhye Lyrics - Queen

Review The Song (24)

Fear me you lords and lady preachers
I descend upon your earth from the skies
I command your very souls you unbelievers
Bring before me what is mine
The seven seas of Rhye

Can you hear me you peers and privy councillors
I stand before you naked to the eyes
I will destroy any man who dares abuse my trust
I swear that you'll be mine
The seven seas of Rhye

Sister I live and lie for you
Mister do or else die
You are mine I possess you
I belong to you forever

Storm the master marathon I'll fly through
By flash and thunder fire I'll survive
(I'll survive, I'll survive)
Then I'll defy the laws of nature
And come out alive
Then I'll get you

Begone with you short and shady senators
Give out the good, leave out the bad evil cries
I challenge the mighty titan and his troubadours
And with a smile
I'll take you to the seven seas of Rhye

Amazing :) | Reviewer: Amanda | 4/7/13

You've got it all wrong first off this isn't just a song and the lyrics aren't just nonsense there's a meaning behind every song. The song was about a fantasy land Freddie Mercury and his sister Kash made when they were little (p.s. that's adorable) but anyways it's such an awesome,amazing,fun and creative song! Although all of Queen 's songs are amazing and so creative

i challenge the mighty titan and his trabadours | Reviewer: big bob | 12/9/12

I guess the song has something to do with freddie challenging the gods at conquering the seven seas, which are the oceans of the earth and rhye is a plant. It sort an "art" thing. By the way this song rules!

I know!!! | Reviewer: No One | 5/6/12

The singing part at the end says,
"Oh, do I like o be the seaside....Where the brass bands play, tiddly om pom pom, oh do I like to be beside the sea! Boy do I like to be beside the sea, and be by myself with glee...."
Search 'I do like to be beside the sea' on Wikipedia. It IS a real song, so it'll be there.

It's just a song! | Reviewer: Anti-Saccharin | 4/18/12

Seven Seas of Rhye is just a song, for crying out loud! Why some Zoroastrian wants to turn it into some mystical treatise and PR hype for his religion and community makes ya wanna scream!

If his people are so wonderful, how come they disrespect their dead by leaving their corpses out in the open for the birds to feed on (ritual exposure)?

Enough on religion already! Freddie didn't give 2 hoots about it. IT'S JUST A SONG!

Pretty obvious | Reviewer: bobby | 7/10/11

This song is pretty clear in its meaning. It's about a made-up land of Rhye and some sort of conqueror claiming the land as his own. That's the overall idea. The details probably died with Freddie.

The conqueror speaks of himself as a god (I descend...from the skies, fear me...preachers). I doubt the character is intended to literally be a god. I assume by 'seven seas of rhye' he's metaphorically claiming the whole world (of Rhye) - 'bring before me what is mine - the seven seas of rhye'. People on Earth sometimes use 'the seven seas' to allude to the whole world.

The way Freddie sings this song perfectly captures the feeling. The conqueror is giving a speech and declaring his ownership over the world. See also the live performances on Youtube - the character singing the song is dramatically laying claim to all the world. It's hard to tell how literally the story is to be taken, but it's a perfect song. It really sounds like you're listening to a piece of a real land's history.

Zoroastrian | Reviewer: Sacchiridites | 10/8/10

This song makes perfect sense to me when I read the The Zend-Avesta (see:

Freddie Murcury was a Zoroastrian.

This is a difficult read (The Zend Avesta) but perhaps it will shed some light on the lyrics considering the fight between darkness and light. Zoroastrians keep a perpetual fire. They are not a religion, but a peoples of genetic heritage that practice their ancient beliefs today. They took refuge in India when they were being attacked. Some of the most powerful and rich business people of India are parsi. They have an ethic and moral standard strictly adhered to and quite altruistic to the wealth and growth of the Indian nation.

Thank goodness for the internet and it's wealth of information.

I'm happy to have found this song. It IS amazing considering Zoroastrianism was the tree to the branches of every mono-theistic religion in the world today.

Peace, Sacchiridites

The biggest queen fan | Reviewer: Anonymous | 8/2/10

Queen is my favorite band and this is one of my altime favorite songs! The piano is fantastic and Freddie's voice is absoulutely genius. Hey does any one know what song is played at the end of the seven seas of rhye when they all sing,? " how would you like to be along the sea side....."

Amazing | Reviewer: Alyssa | 4/29/09

I am absolutly one of the biggest queen fans! ok, so i may not be the biggest.. but you get what i mean! i love this song and countless others! i dont care if doesnt make sense, thats the beauty of it!

what it all means | Reviewer: fuzzyglory | 3/4/09

to all who are confused it is based on latin myths and true life than. the concils(in the song they say it wrong)were two people elected by the senators (this was during the republic part of rome){and if you think politics today are bad, there was a senator whos horse became one of the concil} and the seven seas of rhye if i remember right are the seas of the gods. I hope this clears some things out for u weak minded punks who believe all the lies feed to you by the rich and famous LIERS. if u have more questions send them to me on the playstation network

Seven seas of rhye | Reviewer: Miles | 2/21/09

Ok basically this my alltime favourite song. I love the quirky confusing lyrics which make no sense to anyone except mercury - thats how music should be and im glad that he writes for himself not for us. This song is incredible - try too much love. And all you guys out there who dont understand - dont worry; he did thats all that matters

Pure Freddie | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/12/09

This song really shows Queen's talent at making big, powerful, yet fun songs. Kind of reminds me of Ogre Battle, with Brian's crunchy, "singing" guitar sounds with Freddie's amazing vocals. You can't help but smile at "Then I'll get you" ROAR!

End of the song | Reviewer: cookmoo | 10/25/08

For 'anonymous' who asks about the end of the song - the lyrics "Oh I do like to be beside the seaside, oh, I do like to be beside the sea" is from an old music hall song!!!!!!! I think it shows Queen's sense of humour putting something like that @ the end of a rip roaring track like that????

no devil | Reviewer: Anonymous | 3/2/08

Seems more like a rebellion against corporate culture.

The being that is rebelling against the corporations is not necessarily a good being, but still wants to free the workers from the 'lord and lady preachers' and their 'peer and privvy councilors'

It's almost a theme song for V

Mnnnnn | Reviewer: lia | 1/23/08

whenever i hear this song i pay full attention to see what he is talking about. but oh well who cares????? it's a great song. everytime i hear it i imagine freddie as a viking that lands in a tyny island and conquers everyone. weird i know lol queen is the greatest band ever!!!!!!

Enjoy Life! | Reviewer: Lizzie | 1/8/08

This has to be one of the best "get-jazzed-up-and-enjoy-life-" songs out there. It's gotta be fun to sing aloud, but I've only ever heard it when there are lots of people around ^_^
