The Prophet's Song es una canción extraída del álbum A Night at the Opera realizado en 1975.

La canción fue escrita por Brian May luego de haber tenido un sueño en que se recuperaba de una enfermedad (hepatitis) mientras grababan Sheer Heart Attack.

La canción es un oscuro y potente número, con una influencia muy fuerte del rock progresivo. Dura ocho minutos con veinte segundos y es la canción más larga de Queen (Sin contar el instrumental Untitled incluido en el álbum Made In Heaven).

Cabe señalar que la estructura y ambientación musical de esta canción ha introducido a este tema en la terna de las canciones que podrían ostentar el título de ser la primera canción de Power Metal.

Curiosidades Editar

  • Originalmente se titulaba People Of The Earth y estaba dividida en cuatro partes, tal y como lo explica Roy Thomas Baker en el DVD The Making Of A Night At The Opera.
  • Como es evidente, la idea de poner a esta canción como sencillo principal del disco estuvo presente hasta que se decidó que sería Bohemian Rhapsody en su lugar.

Letra Editar

Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said

Beware the storm that gathers here
Listen to the wise man

I dreamed I saw on a moonlit stair

Spreading his hand to the multitude there

A man who cried for a love gone stale

And ice cold hearts of charity bare

I watched as fear took the old man's gaze

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

'I see no day' I heard him say

So grey is the face of every mortal

Oh oh people of the earth!

'Listen to the warning' the prophet he said

For soon the cold of night will fall

Summoned by your own hand

Ah ah children of the land

Quicken to the new life take my hand

Fly and find the new green bough

Return like the white dove

He told of death as a bone white haze

Taking the lost and the unloved babes

Late too late all the wretches run

These kings of beasts now counting their days

From mother's love is the son estranged

Married his own his precious gain

The earth will shake in two will break

And death all round will be your dowry

Oh oh people of the earth
Listen to the warning the seer he said
For those who hear and mark my words
Listen to the good plan

Oh oh oh oh and two by two my human zoo
They'll be running for to come
Running for to come out of the rain

Oh flee for your lives who heed me not
Let all your treasures make you fear for your life
Deceive you not the fires of hell will take you
Should death await you

Ah people can you hear me?
And now I know and now I know
And now I know and now I know
That you can hear me
And now I know and now I know
And now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know
The earth will shake in two will break
Death all around around around around
Around around around around
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know now I know
Now I know
Wo wo wo wo wo wo wo wo wo
Listen to the wise listen to the wise listen to the wise
Listen to the wise listen to the wise man
La la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la la la la la
La la
La la
La la
Come here I hear you
Come here I hear you
Come here I hear you
Ah ah ah ah ah
Listen to the man listen to the man listen to the man listen to the mad man

God gave you grace to purge this place
And peace all around may be your fortune
Oh oh children of the land
Love is still the answer take my hand
The vision fades a voice I hear
Listen to the madman!
But still I fear and still I dare not
Laugh at the madman!
