"Get Down, Make Love" as written by and Freddie Mercury....
Get down, make love
Get down, make love
You take my body
I give you heat
You say you hungry
I give you meat
I suck your mind
You blow my head
Make love - (make love)
Inside your bed - everybody get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love

Every time I get hot
You wanna cool down
Every time I get high
You say you wanna come down
You say it's enough
In fact it's too much
Every time I get a - get down, get down
Get down, make love

Oh, sss, hah

I can squeeze - you can shake me (get down, make love)
I can feel - when you break me (get down, make love)
Come on so heavy - when you take me (get down, make love)
You can make love, you can make love, you can make love, you can make love
(Get down, make love)
You can make everybody get down, make love
Get down, make love

Every time I get high
You wanna come down
Every time I get hot
You say you wanna cool down
You say it's enough
In fact it's too much
Every time I wanna, get down
Get down, get down

Aah, ooh, make love, make love, make love, make love, make love
Aah, oh

Get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love

Every time I get hot
You wanna cool down
Every time I get high
You say you wanna come down
You say it's enough
In fact it's just too much
Every time I wanna, get down
Get down, get down, make love
Get down, make love
Get down, make love

    General CommentI don't care if freddie was gay or not. I think he was a genius and this song is one more example. It is about getting high and horny and his partner shows no interest. He is talking about sexual frustration.

    General CommentBisexual or gay. Doesn't matter. Just like akanawha said, he was a genius. His sexuality doesn't matter. He was great anyways (it's not a flaw to be gay/bisexual). Just like this song. This is one of their songs that I can never get out of my head after listening to it. Well... a lot of their songs are like that. But it's just such a great song, just like most of their songs. And yeah, 'sleeping on the sidewalk' is not a bad song. At least I like it, but well, you know. Skip it? I don't think so!

    "Does it mean this, does it mean that, that's all anybody wants to know. Fuck them, darling. I say what any decent poet would say if you dared ask him to analyse his work: If you see it, dear, then it's there."

    General Comment'I don't think Freddie was really gay in the 70s'
    Yeh, sure, he 'became' gay as soon as 1980 hit did he? Jeez. I'm not sure if he was gay or bi but a) he definitely did not 'change' and b) who gives a shit?
    Pretty obvious sexual content but also frustration: 'Everytime I get high, you wanna come down' and could've been about a man or woman.

    General Commentwhy would you question his homosexuality? nowhere in the song does it ever say "her" or "she", he wants to get down and make love, but not saying with whome.

    General CommentThis song is the very thing that one of Osams's sons want to do to the Bush twins or at least both of them, but "Daddy" cought him in the act and now has revelations of "Daddy" pasted on the face of the prisoners of Guantanamo Bay! :(

    General CommentRight-- I have a studio demo of the song "It's Late" and instead of the normal version, there was an interlude of Freddie improvising with a delay machine. Somewhere in the middle, he pops out with the lyric "get down, make love." I'm pretty sure the song stemmed from that.

    General CommentI don't think Freddie was really gay in the 70s. This song is even more horny then Body Language! Ok, i take that back. But tune the lyrics out for a second; The instrumental in this song is freaking amazing, considering they didn't use synthesizers! All of the synthy sounding stuff came from Brian's guitar, and it's insane, i'll tell you that!
