Lyrics Of Fat Bottomed Girls To Fetch A Figure Of $50,000

People all over the globe are familiar with the iconic song by Queen, ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’, which was released back in 1978. The chart-topper has been a mainstay in movie theatres and bars alike. To this day, it is considered to be one of the best songs released by the band. In addition, it has made it to the top 11 in the Singles Chart of the UK and managed to snag the position of number 24 in the US on the Billboard Hot 100. 

In recent news, it has been revealed that Gotta Have Rock and Roll, an auction house based in New Jersey, is bringing this original to auction on the 11th of August. People will be permitted to make bids on the handwritten and original lyrics of this Queen’s classic hit, written by Freddie Mercury himself. 

The auction house has estimated that these lyrics could go for a minimum figure of $50,000. There are not many handwritten lyrics out there from the band or Mercury himself, especially not for a song that is as popular as this one. The rarity of the lyrics of ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ cannot be understated, and the music industry is stressing the importance of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The auction house itself is marketing the event to entice collectors into expanding their collections with a unique item like this one.

The lyrics to this masterpiece consist of a total of 26 lines, which have been written on two sheets of paper, using a blue ballpoint pen. ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ details three verses of the song on the front and contains a recording log sheet from Mountain Recording Studio at the back. The second sheet of paper outlines the two versions of the chorus, handwritten on white legal paper. This was written for recording purposes and has some underlined words for accent. They indicate the slight variations that can be heard in the released version, which include ‘Cause I kept my greatest treasure’ rather than ‘I still got my greatest treasure’.

Moreover, ‘hey big’ was omitted in the reprise and replaced with ‘hey big woman’. Several revisions were also made.

It is no secret that the Mountain Recording Studio was a favorite of the band, where they enjoyed recording their albums. In fact, seven of the albums released by Queen were recorded in the studio, between the years 1978 and 1996. It also includes the album Jazz, which consists of the song ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’. 

Along with this amazing piece, the auction house will be auctioning off more than 1300 lots of the best memorabilia in sports, pop culture, history, and rock and roll. Most of this stuff will range from a price of $50 to $500,000. Gotta Have Rock and Roll estimated that new and old collections alike are sure to bid on various items, starting from the 11th of August till 20th of August.
