"Princes Of The Universe" as written by and Freddie Mercury....
Here we are, born to be kings
We're the princes of the universe
Here we belong, fighting to survive
In a world with the darkest powers, heh
And here we are, we're the princes of the universe
Here we belong, fighting for survival
We've come to be the rulers of you all

I am immortal, I have inside me blood of kings - yeah - yeah
I have no rival, no man can be my equal
Take me to the future of you all

Born to be kings, princes of the universe
Fighting and free
Got your world in my hand
I'm here for your love and I'll make my stand
We were born to be princes of the universe

No man could understand
My power is in my own hand
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, people talk about you
People say you've had your day
I'm a man that will go far
Fly the moon and reach for the stars
With my sword and head held high
Got to pass the test first time - yeah
I know that people talk about me - I hear it every day
But I can prove them wrong 'cos I'm right first time
Yeah, yeah, alright, let's go, let's go, ha haa
Yeah, watch this man fly, wooh
Bring on the girls - c'mon - c'mon - c'mon
Here we are - here we are
Born to be kings, we're the princes of the universe
Here we belong
Born to be kings, princes of the universe
Fighting and free, got your world in my hand
I'm here for your love and I'll make my stand
We were born to be princes of the universe, of the universe, of the universe
Of the universe of the universe

    General CommentOf course this songs meaning is clear in reference to highlander, but it also contains something of an ode to the power of musicians, or particularly to queen as an important influnce on the lives of those who listen to their music. read the lyrics again after this commentary, and you'll see it has more to do with a rock stars quest for dominance than goofy (though awesome) immortals.

    General CommentThis song is great! I listened to it before every exam at uni - and now I listen to it before job interviews - or any other time I need a confidence boost. Its all about being better than everybody else, and being a winner (so great to sing to if you need to build your confidence up).

    General CommentPersonally I am inclined to believe that this song has a second meaning which none of you have commented on. By "Princes of the Universe", it is entirely possible that Freddy was making another reference to the homosexual community, the same way he did with "We are the Champions."

    General CommentSimply an awesome song, means pretty much what it sounds like, which unfortunately means it loses a good bit of literal meaning taken outside the context of the movie _Highlander_...doesn't make it any less incredible though

    General CommentThis is my all time favorite song by Queen. And the solo near the end and then Freddie yells "Bring on the girls." I love it.
