This is my first attempt at a song fic thingy...hope you enjoy it, reviews would be great!

Song: We are the Champions by Queen (Does anyone else think I like Queen, this is the second song I've used in a story)


It was heading into the wee hours of the morning at O'Malley's bar and grill, but the celebratory party was still raging, it was 48 hours after the confirmed destruction of the Ori and the whole of the SGC had flocked to the bar. Some bright spark had bought along a karaoke machine, and it was well worn by now, but the 5 inebriated members of SG-1, and 1 not so inebriated member had yet to sing. So after much cajoling from Jack, who was just 24 hours into his retirement, having decided that with the Goa'uld gone, and the Ori gone it was time to step down from his postion, the 6 past and present members of SG-1 made there way towards the stage as Jack requested the song to be played.

Smiling goofily he walked over to the mic where the rest were arguing about how to stand, immediately falling into his 'General' mode he organized them into a semi circle, Daniel on the far left, then Vala, Sam and Jack, followed by Mitchell and Teal'c.

As the words began scrolling across the screen in front of them, Jack began to sing, everyone in the room hushed as his surprisingly melodic voice came through the speakers

I've paid my dues -
Time after time –

The rest of the team quickly joined him, Teal'c's deep voice wonderfully countered by the soft tones of Sam and Vala's

I've done my sentence
But committed no crime –

And bad mistakes
I've made a few
I've had my share of sand kicked in my face -
But I've come through

Grinning broadly they all launched into the chorus with gusto

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world -

I've taken my bows
And my curtain calls -
You brought me fame and fortune and everything that goes with it
-
I thank you all –

By now, the entire room was singing along with them, even General Hammond and General Landry were screaming the lyrics out, laughter in there eyes.

We are the champions - my friends
And we'll keep on fighting - till the end -
We are the champions -
We are the champions
No time for losers
'Cause we are the champions - of the world –

As the song ended, SG-1 bowed on the stage as the room erupted in catcalls, whistles and clapping.


And to be nice, I added a soppy fluffly song fic as a chapter 2 (because, quite honestly), where would my senses have gone if I didn't have fluff in one of my stories?
