"Is this the world we created?"

        from the album "The Works" by Queen

A really good song with great lyrics. I find it very hard to believe that
neither this song nor "Love of my life" are not to be found on any of the
greatest hits albums since I for one, consider them to be among the finest
from the Queen repertoire.
This song took me some time to transcribe. This is the 3rd atempt, but I
think I got it right. I've seen a few other transcriptions, but I don't
think they are accurate enough.
The lyrics follow after the transcription.

BTW Brian May tunes down half a step to Eb for this song.

Good luck

        Lee Francis

Comment: I basically only transcribed the first verse and chorus. I then
         assume that the second verse and chorus are identical. BTW
         they're not (but there's not much difference).


Lyrics:

Is This the World We Created? (Mercury/May)

Verse 1 Just look at all those hungry mouths we have to feed
        Take a look at all the suffering we breed
        So many lonely faces scattered all around
        Searching for what they need

Chorus  Is this the world we created
        What did we do it for
        Is this the world we invaded
        Against the law
        So it seems in the end
        Is this what we're all living for today
        The world that we created

Verse 2 You know that every day a helpless child is born
        Who needs some loving care inside a happy home
        Somewhere a wealthy man is sitting on his throne
        Waiting for life to go by

Chorus  Is this the world we created
        We made it on our own
        Is this the world we devasted
        Right to the bone
        If there's a God in the sky looking down
        What can he think of what we've done
        To the world that he created

So many lonely faces Scattered all around

F#min                         G         D/F#   Emin
    Searching for what  they need


Chorus:

             D         A/D
Is this the world we created
    Amin/D         G/D
We made it on our own
             Bmin
Is this the world we invaded
  F#min          Emin
     Its all alone
(then same as Intro part II)
So it seems, In the end, Is this what, Were living for, Today,
In this world that we created.

Verse II:
You know that everyday a helpless child id born
Who needs love and care inside a happy home
Somewhere a wealthy man sitting on his throne
Waiting for life to go by

Chorus II:
Is this the world that we created
We made it on our own
Is this the world we devastated
Right to the bone
If theres a god, up in the sky, looking down, what must he think of what
we've done
To the world that he created.
