"Hang On In There" as written by and Freddie/deacon Mercury....
Don't let go
Don't lose your mystique
Wait a little longer
Tomorrow brings another feast

Don't let go
Don't lose your reputation
Thank God you're still alive, ha
You're still in one piece

Hang on in there, don't lose your appetite
Hang on in there, forget the danger signs
Pray for that magical moment (just stay there) and it will appear
(Don't fight for lost emotions)
Wait for the sunrise,
And everything will seem so clear
(Look straight ahead, look straight ahead)

Hang on in there (hang on in there)
Hang on in there (hang on in there)
Your wish will be granted
All your problems will disappear

Don't be a fool
You haven't reached your peak
You've got a fast car racing up inside you
Your life is incomplete

Hang on in there, hang on in there
Pray for that magical moment and it will appear
(Wait for the moment)
Wait for the sunrise - oh
Just wait and see and it will seem so clear
Ba dap bap ee bap bap ba ba bap bap de de de da
And let's go, let's go - o.k. now do the change now
Hang on
Hang on in there, hang on in there
Yeah hang on in there, yeah

    General CommentOriginally, this, I believe was a B-Side. It was added as a bonus track on The Miracle on CD. My guess on why it was included is this: When the Miracle was released, Queen knew it might be the last album they released, so they finished it up with the brilliant "Was It All Worth It", a look back on their careers and a worthy 'Farewell' song. However, Freddie managed to hang on long enough to see the release of Innuendo and record some vocals for Made In Heaven. So by adding this song, it turns from "Farewell and goodnight. It was a brilliant show." to "It was a brilliant show... but hang on! We're not gone just yet!"

    The song itself, is, of course, saying to not give up... you still have more to fight for.

    General CommentThis song is a great B side and showed the high catchyness had never deserted them.

    Agree with most of the above.
    Its highlighting survival and how by keeping steady you can hang on and come out the other end in a survivor.

    General CommentIt was a B-side to I Want It All and I think it was always on the CD. They put 'extras' on the Magic and Miracle CDs. The Miracle also has the extended version of The Invisible Man and Brian's Chinese Torture solo.

    General CommentI started listening to this song again yesterday when I was feeling pretty much like sh*t, and after listening to it, I immeditately come good again. In my own opinion it's writen for people who are having a hard time with life and feel like giving up. Great song to listen to if you feel like your at your wits end.
