Description
*Real Awesome* Is a power ballad by the rock band *Queen* from their 1977 album *News of the World*. Written by bassist *John Deacon*, it was released as the A-side of the single *Spread Your Wings*/*Sheer Heart Attack* in 1978.

The track features *Freddie Mercury* on piano and vocals, *Brian May* on electric guitar, *Roger Taylor* on drums, and *John Deacon* on bass and acoustic guitars. A live version of the song appears on the band's 1979 album *Live Killers*.

The song is unusual for *Queen* in that it uses a 3rd person narrative. It is also the only *Queen*single that does not have the rest of the group providing backing vocals to *Mercury's* lead.

*Sammy was low, just watching the show
Over and over again
Knew it was time, he'd made up his mind
To leave his dead life behind
His boss said to him, "Boy, you'd better begin
To get those crazy notions right out of your head
Sammy, who do you think that you are?
You should've been sweeping up the Emerald Bar"
Spread your wings and fly away
Fly away, far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away, far away
Pull yourself together
'Cause you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man
He spends his evenings alone in his hotel room
Keeping his thoughts to himself, he'd be leaving soon
Wishing he was miles and miles away
Nothing in this world, nothing would make him stay
Since he was small, had no luck at all
Nothing came easy to him
Now it was time, he'd made up his mind
"This could be my last chance"
His boss said to him, "Now listen, boy! You're always dreaming
You've got no real ambition, you won't get very far
Sammy boy, don't you know who you are?
Why can't you be happy at the Emerald Bar?"
So honey, spread your wings and fly away
Fly away, far away
Spread your little wings and fly away
Fly away, far away
Pull yourself together
'Cause you know you should do better
That's because you're a free man
Come on, honey, fly with me*
