"Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon" as written by and Freddie / Mercury....
I go out to work on Monday morning
Tuesday I go off to honeymoon
I'll be back again before it's time for sunny-down,
I'll be lazing on a Sunday afternoon
Bicycling on every Wednesday evening
Thursday I go waltzing to the zoo
I come from London Town, I'm just an ordinary guy
Fridays I go painting in the Louvre
I'm bound to be proposing on a Saturday night (there he goes again)
I'll be lazing on a Sunday
Lazing on a Sunday
Lazing on a Sunday afternoon

    General CommentI can see Freddy riding on those old style bikes (with a huge wheel on front and a ridiculous small one behind), wearing a curled moustache and a round hat, saluting the girls in corsetted victorian dresses, and the kids with sailor suits playing on the pond, throwing rocks to some ducks...

    General CommentPiss take? I'm not sure what you mean by that, but the quality of the song is clearly intentional so it matches the sound of soungs from that era.

    Queen = Genius!

    General CommentIt's pretty obvious..short, harmonious, terrific. It's just about a good Sunday afternoon for Freddy.

    General CommentFreddie is the writer and singer on this song rich20b. A short and fun song as only Mercury could do it. As a matter of fact I am lazing on a Sunday afternoon right now.

    General CommentI love the implication that an ordinary guy spends his Fridays "painting in the Louvre."
