"Doing All Right" as written by Timothy John Staffell and Brian May....
Yesterday my life was in ruin
Now today I know what I'm doing
Gotta feeling I should be doing all right
Doing all right

Where will I be this time tomorrow
Jump in joy or sinking in sorrow
Anyway I should be doing all right
Doing all right

Should be waiting for the sun
Looking round to find the words to say
Should be waiting for the skies to clear
There a time in all the world
Should be waiting for the sun
And anyway I've got hide away

Ah ah ah ah
Yesterday my life was in ruin
Now today God knows what I'm doing
Anyway I should be doing all right
Doing all right

Doing all right

    General CommentI really like this song I think the piano at the start is so pretty. I think it might be about a homeless person or someone who's partner has just left them

    Btw the lyrics are wrong for this song these are the corrected ones:

    Yesterday my life was in ruin
    Now today I know what I'm doing
    Got a feeling I should be doing all right
    Doing all right

    Where will I be this time tomorrow?
    Jump for joy and sinking in sorrow
    Anyway I should be doing all right
    Doing all right

    Should be waiting for the sun
    Looking round to find the words to say
    Should be waiting for the skies to clear
    There ain't time in all the world

    Should be waiting for the sun
    And anyway I've got to hide away
    Hide away

    Yesterday my life was in ruin
    Now today I know what I'm doing
    Got a feeling I should be doing all right
    Doing all right

    Doing all right

    Doing all right.....

    General CommentYeah, the lyrics are incorrect, but thats how it reads in the CD booklet, so it's a mistake anyone could make. Anyway, this song seems to be about going on after a horrible tragedy of somesort, probably losing someone.
