"Bicycle Race" as written by and Freddie Mercury....
Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

You say black I say white
You say bark I say bite
You say shark I say hey man
Jaws was never my scene
And I don't like Star Wars
You say Rolls I say Royce
You say God give me a choice
You say Lord I say Christ
I don't believe in Peter Pan
Frankenstein or Superman
All I wanna do is

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my -
Bicycle races are coming your way
So forget all your duties oh yeah
Fat bottomed girls
They'll be riding today
So look out for those beauties oh yeah
On your marks, get set, go!
Bicycle race bicycle race bicycle race
Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
Bicycle bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want a bicycle race

Hey
You say coke I say caine
You say John I say Wayne
Hot dog I say cool it man
I don't wanna be the President of America
You say smile I say cheese
Cartier I say please
Income tax I say Jesus
I don't want to be a candidate for
Vietnam or Watergate
'Cause all I wanna do is

Bicycle (yeah) bicycle (eh) bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle (c'mon) bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

    General CommentI love the mixed music styles. This is an awesome song all about just wanting life to be simple and forgetting about the problems of the world with a magical ride on your bicycle.

    General CommentThis song just signifies one concept of ourselfs and that is independent thought. You dont have to follow everyone and like what they admire. All of us sees reality differently and that what makes us significant. The message is be independent is what makes us divine.

    General CommentIt's talking about politics, the media, entertainment, religion, and everything else that is or was controversial of the time. He's stating he doesn't want to be apart of it, he just wants to go out and do stuff for his own and not worry about all that nonsense.

    General CommentIt's just about the tour de france and how Freddy loves riding his bike. You guys are obsessed with finding gay connection in every queen song its insane. I mean, there was even a post in We Will Rock You saying it was a gay pride anthem. It wasn't even written by Freddy for god's sake, it was Brain May's song. Just because he was gay doesn't mean every song is about that.

    General CommentI just think it's simply about being free from the influence of others.

    General Commentlaragiesbrecht summed it up. i also think that it's about not being judges as a child by doing immature things, such as riding a bicycle. also being free from society and doing the things that you want to do. although freddie mercury was bi, it doesnt mean that all of his songs are about being gay or bi
