Words and music by queen

If youre searching out for something
Dont try so hard
If youre feeling kinda nothing
Dont try so hard
When your problems seem like mountains
You feel the need to find some answers
You can leave it for another day
Dont try so hard

But if you fall and take a tumble it wont be far
If you fail you mustnt grumble
Thank your lucky stars
Just savour every mouthful
And treasure every moment
When the storms are raging round you
Stay right where you are

Oh dont try so hard
Oh dont take it all to heart
Its only fools they make these rules
Dont try so hard

One day youll be a sergeant major
Oh youll be so proud
Screaming out your bloody orders
Hey but not too loud
Polish all your shiny buttons
Dress as lamb instead of mutton
But you never had to try to stand out from the crowd

Oh what a beautiful world
This is the life for me
Oh what a beautiful world
Its the simple life for me

Oh dont try so hard
Oh dont take it all to heart
Its only fools - they make these rules
Dont try so hard
Dont try so hard
Dont try so hard
