Caught in a landslide No escape from reality Open your eyes Look up to the skies and see I'm just a poor boy I need no sympathy Because I'm easy come, easy go Little high, little low Anyway the wind blows Doesn't really matter to me To me Mama Just killed a man Put a gun against his head Pulled my trigger, now he's dead Mama Life had just begun But now I've gone and thrown it all away Mama Didn't mean to make you cry If I'm not back again this time tomorrow Carry on, carry on As if nothing really matters Too late My time has come Sent shivers down my spine Body's aching all the time Goodbye everybody I've got to go Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth Mama (anyway the wind blows) I don't wanna die I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all I see a little silhouetto of a man Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango? Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very frightening me (Galileo) Galileo (Galileo) Galileo Galileo Figaro Magnifico I'm just a poor boy, nobody loves me He's just a poor boy from a poor family Spare him his life from this monstrosity Easy come, easy go, will you let me go? Bismillah! No, we will not let you go (Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go (Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go (Let me go!) Never let you go (Let me go!) Never, never, never, never let me go No, no, no, no, no, no, no Oh, mama mia, mama mia Mama mia, let me go Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me for me, for me So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye? So you think you can love me and leave me to die? Oh, baby Can't do this to me, baby Just gotta get out Just gotta get right outta here Nothing really matters Anyone can see Nothing really matters Nothing really matters to me Anyway the wind blows Hi rock fans, how are you? I'm Paul Emerencio, creator of "Rock com Legendas" And I usually give my opinion about the lyrics in the end of the videos So, here we go: I think this song is about the turbulent youth that Freddie Mercury had As everyone knows, he wrote the lyrics And he chose not to clarify the meaning He said for each draw their own conclusions But Brian May has said in an interview That Freddie Mercury put a lot of himself into that song According to the biography of Freddie He moved frequently during childhood and adolescence Not only houses, but also countries This explains the "easy come, easy go", in my opinion Freddie was always a bit effeminate And you know that children in school don't forgive At 8 years old, he was sent alone in a ship to study in India Now imagine how it should be you arrive in a new country In a new school Being bullied every day, and without your family around Later, in adolescence He and his family have fled from a civil war in Zanzibar And they settled in London In short The youth of Freddie Mercury was insane And it's possible, or probable That at some point he thought about giving up everything Give up on life Some words in the lyrics appear in the Qu'ran As "Bismillah", which means "In the name of Allah" These words are from Freddie's parents religion And when he says in the lyrics: “will you let me go?” And the answer is: “Bismillah! No, we will not let you go” For me this part shows the support that Freddie received from his family If in fact he went through a period of instability Many people think this song is about homosexuality Or bisexuality of Freddie Mercury I think it could be truth But unlike most I don't believe this to be the central theme of song For me, the point is all difficulties he faced in childhood And that includes, of course The prejudice due to his sexual orientation.
