The Lyrics

Once I was happy but now I'm forlorn,
Like an old corpse that is tattered and torn,
Left on this world to fret and to mourn,
Betrayed by all chicks past their teens.
The girl that I loved she was sexy,
I tried all I knew her to please,
But I could not please her one-quarter so well,
As the man who sang the lead for Queen!
Oh, he'd fly through the crowd with the greatest of ease,
That daring young man, the lead singer of Queen,
His stage moves were graceful, all the fans he would please,
But still he liked guys anyway.
This young man by name was Freddie Mercury,
Arrogant, bucktooth, of all that I've seen,
Where'er he appeared all you could see,
Was ovation from all people there.
He'd smile from the mic on the people below,
And one night he smiled on my love,
She wink'd back at him and she shouted "Freddie,"
As he hung out at gay bars after.
Oh, he'd fly through the crowd with the greatest of ease,
That daring young man, the lead singer of Queen,
His stage moves were graceful, all the fans he would please,
But still he liked guys anyway.
Mary Aust and Jim Hutton were both on my side,
And very hard tried to make her my bride,
Mary, she sighed, and Jim Hutton he cried,
To be bugged by me all the time.
'Twas all no avail, she went there every night,
And would throw him bouquets on the stage,
Which caused her to stalk him, how he ran me down,
To tell you would take a whole page.
Oh, he'd fly through the crowd with the greatest of ease,
That daring young man, the lead singer of Queen,
His stage moves were graceful, all the fans he would please,
But still he liked guys anyway.
One night I as usual went to her dear home,
Found there Jim Hutton and Mary alone,
I asked for my love, and soon they made known,
To my horror that she'd off and caught AIDS.
She'd strutted 'round Freddie with all of her might,
To him, the lead singer of Queen,
He said "get away, I now know what you've got",
And ran off to record The Hitman.
Oh, he'd fly through the crowd with the greatest of ease,
That daring young man, the lead singer of Queen,
His stage moves were graceful, all the fans he would please,
But still he liked guys anyway.
Some months after this I turned on the news,
Was greatly surprised to see 1 Logan Mews,
A note in red letters, declaring the views,
Of a tabloid journalist.
He'd run away fast as he could, but she still passed off,
A rather incurable disease,
How he got it is still beyond me,
There goes the lead singer of Queen!
Oh, he'd fly through the crowd with the greatest of ease,
That daring young man, the lead singer of Queen,
His stage moves were graceful, all the fans he would please,
But still he liked guys anyway.
She'd given him AIDS with the greatest of ease,
You'd think he was straight, that lead singer of Queen,
His legacy ended, hers is still seen,
Maybe he'd stayed with guys anyway.

Your parody isn't the least bit funny and is in very poor taste. Maybe you'll feel differently about it when one of your friends or loved one's dies from AID'S. You are a typical stupid American...making fun of anything you don't understand.

Queen was an amazing band which, unfortunately, I wasn't old enough to appreciate at their peak. Ms. Hunter is right...except for one thing: I would take advice from the British on many things, but humor is not one of them. British humor died the day Richard Lester said "That's a wrap!" on the set of "A Hard Day's Night." Or maybe you haven't noticed a dearth of Monty Python parodies here.

I happen to be a very big Freddie fan, maybe you just haven't got a sense of humor.

Well im a huge Queen fan even though I am really too young for it and I agree that its not funny. I mean for crying outloud, if your going to be horribly insensitive about something you might as well make it vaguely amusing..this is just stupid. Pffft Americans..
Mat Rogers - December 07, 2003 - Report this comment
Agreed. This is not funny at all. You may enjoy Queen's music but making this stupid parody is not a sense of humour. It may not have been intended to be insulting but I think a lot of people do not agree with you in regards to what constitues a sense of humour. I don't mean to insult you at all with what I just wrote but believe me it's not funny. And "Kate". I think that you are just immature that's all. I don't blame you for anything I just think you are too young and believe anything that mocks is funny. In a few years time you will realize that this song is just a really dry attempt at humour.

The chorus itself is cute, but the overall concept is just in poor taste.

This 'poem' is revolting. In very, very poor taste. It trivialises the suffering that poor Freddie and countless others have suffered at the hands of this terrible disease and makes a mockery of Mary Austin and Jim Hutton. The talentless author should be ashamed of himself

i hate to see the writing of this 'parody' linked to being a 'stupid american'. it's composition has nothing to do with the author being american. it has everything to do with an author, of any nationality, who isn't respecting the depth of pain/suffering of others. i'm an american and i find the parody as offensive as most of you.
Sega - October 09, 2005 - Report this comment
Listen you guys, I didn't mean it to be offensive. I meant it to cut on people who act like this. If you guys are seriously offended, I will take it down... Do you guys know how I would go about removing the parody?
