"The Loser in the End" as written by and Roger Taylor....
Mama's got a problem
She don't know what to say
Her little baby boy
Has just left home today
She's got to be the loser in the end
She's got to be the loser in the end
Misuse her and you'll lose her as a friend
She's Ma on whom you can always depend ooh

She washed and fed and clothed and cared
For nearly twenty years
And all she gets is Goodbye Ma
And the night times for her tears
She's got to be the loser in the end
She's got to be the loser in the end
Misuse her and you'll lose her as a friend
She's Ma on whom you can always depend ooh

So listen mothers everywhere
To just one mothers son
You'll get forgotten on the way
If you don't let them have their fun
Forget regrets and just remember
It's not so long since you were young

You're bound to be the loser in the end
You're bound to be the loser in the end
They'll chose their new shoes
That's not far to bend
You're Ma on whom they can always depend ooh ooh

    General CommentRoger's first Queen song was Modern Times Rock 'n' Roll on Queen I. Yeah, definitely has a great drum track!

    General CommentIt's about a mom who loved her son a lot, but she was too overprotective of him, so now that he's all grown up, he can't wait to get out of the house and leave her. It's giving advice to moms (or parents in general) not to be overprotective or too controlling of their kids (at least let them pick out their own shoes!), but at the same time, seems to be telling the kids not to take their moms for granted.

    General CommentI have heard some less than flattering reviews on this song but personally I think it rocks. I have to admit I like all of Queen's music but this one is a hard rocker with the coolest drums.

    General CommentI agree. Would this be Roger's first Queen song, or were there other ones on Queen 1. Anyway, this has an awesome drum track, i was overwelmed when i heard about it.

    General CommentThis is probably one Roger's finest performances as a vocalist and drummer. The fills towards the end are mindblowing and very John Bonham-esque.
