So you think you can love him and forget that Iwas first 'toon! I can see the gay angle, if you push it, but when it comes to music, I prefer to just enjoy and keep it simple. (musical interlude)So you think Homer Simpson is one funny guy? First, LOVE this song, whatever its about (I have always taken it at face value----dude killed someone, now must face the consequences "any way the wind blows", meaning, no matter how you slice it, the consequence is the same---even though he tried to fight the court and ask for leniency because "he's just a poor boy from a poor family", never really had a shot in life).
Everyone was so surprised at what he was doing on that album. His best friend is Barney.(He works for Mister Slate, pushing rocks, Spends his day on the clock.)When the whistle-bird blows, Yabba Dabba Doo time! In this case, he's saying if he doesn't come back- for her to go on and date new people and just forget about him like it doesn't even matter.
I must get insideto shake that Yabba Dabba Dew off my lilly! If you think about this story, and you then listen to Bo Rap's lyrics- they may tie in together. The "man" that is killed could represent Freddie's old, straight, innocent self who was in love with Mary. Shall we do some line by line interpretations as examples of what I mean?
But according to this claim, Freddie just wasn't happy.
Great Gazoo, Great Gazoo will you please wave your wand-o? "He can't believe that he really cheated on Mary- he's questioning if the whole confusing situation is just a dream."Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality"He's stuck and he can't run away from his sexual preference, or the fact that he had an affair."Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see- I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy"Here he's just saying that he isn't special- he did a bad thing and no one should care about him or feel bad for him."Because I'm easy come, easy go. Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me- to me."He states that he is careless and full of emotions.
(musical interlude)I see a little silly green and nerdy man. The new, gay, guilty Freddie is the one who "killed" the old him. Well if your still here, then here goes nothing.."Is this the real life, is this just fantasy?
As much as he loved Mary, he was gay- he couldn't deny it.
