An extremely rare set of Freddie Mercury's handwritten lyrics for the 1978 Queen song “Fat Bottomed Girls”. The lyrics consist of 26 lines in blue ballpoint pen on two sheets of paper. The first sheet — titled “Fat Bottomed Girls” — details the three verses and on the reverse of a Mountain Recording Studio recording log sheet. The second sheet outlines both versions of the chorus on a sheet of white legal paper, written out for recording purposes and with some words underlined for accent, showing slight variations from the released version including “Cause I kept my greatest treasure” instead of “I still got my greatest treasure” and omitting “Hey big” in the reprise “Hey big woman...” and revisions including “big eyed floozie” to “blue eyed floozy”. Mountain Recording Studio was a favorite place of Queen to record their albums, in fact they recorded 7 of their albums there, from 1978-1996, including the album “Jazz” in which “Fat Bottomed Girls” is on. Considered to be one of Queen’s best songs, even making it to the top 11 in the UK Singles Chart and 24 in Billboard Hot 100 in the US. The rarity of these lyrics cannot be understated, making this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to add these to your collection. Measures 8.5 x 11.5. Very good condition. Comes with a Letter of Provenance from Jacky Smith and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
