"The Miracle" as written by and Freddie/deacon Mercury....
Every drop of rain that falls in Sahara Desert says it all,
It's a miracle,
All God's creations great and small, the Golden Gate and the Taj Mahal,
That's a miracle,
Test tube babies being born, mothers, fathers dead and gone,
It's a miracle,
We're having a miracle on earth, mother nature does it all for us,
The wonders of this world go on, the hanging Gardens of Babylon,
Captain Cook and Cain and Able, Jimi Hendrix to the Tower of Babel
It's a miracle, it's a miracle, it's a miracle, it's a miracle,
The one thing we're all waiting for, is peace on earth - an end to war,
It's a miracle we need - the miracle, the miracle we're all waiting for today,
If every leaf on every tree, could tell a story that would be a miracle,
If every child on every street, had clothes to wear and food to eat,
That's a miracle,
If all God's people could be free, to live in perfect harmony,
It's a miracle, we're having a miracle on earth,
Mother nature does it all for us
Open hearts and surgery, Sunday mornings with a cup of tea,
Super powers always fighting,
But Mona Lisa just keeps on smiling,

The wonders of this world go on,
It's a miracle, it's a miracle, it's a miracle, it's a miracle,
The one thing we're all waiting for, is peace on earth and an end to war,
It's a miracle we need, the miracle, the miracle,
Peace on earth and end to war today,
That time will come one day you'll see when we can all be friends,

    General CommentI agree with Peelmaster, except for one thing...it doesn't sound too much like the test tube babies being born is a good thing. "Test tube babies being born, mothers, fathers dead and gone" It sounded to me like something from Brave New World.

    General CommentHahaha, for the longest time, I thought he said "he Hanging Gardens of Babylon, Captain Kirk and Cain and Abel."

    Anyway, The MIracle has always struck me as "Look around at what what an amazing planet we live on, and what we've accomplished as a species...Now, if we can achieve world peace, it'd be perfect"

    General CommentI don't think this is exactly what napnip said but it kinda relates. I think it's about how apathetic the world is today. How there have been such great things in the past and it's like they never existed, because the world is too busy caring about themselves. And he hopes for all this bickering to end and for them to look at these things that have shaped the world they live in, and maybe teach them to appreciate people.

    That's the best I can put it...

    General CommentThis song seems to be saying that maybe we should take the time to appeciate even the little things in life ("Sunday mornings with a cup of tea") and that it's amazing that we have them. Even though we already have many miracles on Earth, we still need many more to bring world peace.

    General CommentWhat I take from this song is all the things Queen have written into this song.

    The song describes the best things about our world, buildings, famous people, advances in science (test tube babies)

    It then relates that to the bad things about our world, war, starving people.

    The Miracle is all about Queens Hope.

    The last section is all about everyone coming together and being friends.

    So in a nutshell "The Miracle" is about the day in the future we finally get peace on earth.

    General CommentThis is a beautiful song about appreciating everything that we have on this earth and not taking it for granted like many do. The song isn’t just mentioning the things we should appreciating, but saying that the world; Mother Nature, is a miracle. Every happening, every war, every life and every death is a miracle that should be appreciate.
