"Don't Stop Me Now" as written by and Freddie Mercury....
Tonight I'm gonna have myself a real good time
I feel alive and the world I'll turn it inside out - yeah
And floating around in ecstasy
So don't stop me now don't stop me
'Cause I'm having a good time having a good time

I'm a shooting star leaping through the sky
Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity
I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva
I'm gonna go go go
There's no stopping me

I'm burnin' through the sky yeah
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don't stop me now I'm having such a good time
I'm having a ball
Don't stop me now
If you wanna have a good time just give me a call
Don't stop me now ('Cause I'm having a good time)
Don't stop me now (Yes I'm havin' a good time)
I don't want to stop at all

Yeah, I'm a rocket ship on my way to Mars
On a collision course
I am a satellite I'm out of control
I am a sex machine ready to reload
Like an atom bomb about to
Oh oh oh oh oh explode

I'm burnin' through the sky yeah
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic woman of you

Don't stop me don't stop me
Don't stop me hey hey hey
Don't stop me don't stop me
Ooh ooh ooh, I like it
Don't stop me don't stop me
Have a good time good time
Don't stop me don't stop me ah
Oh yeah
Alright

Oh, I'm burnin' through the sky yeah
Two hundred degrees
That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit
I'm trav'ling at the speed of light
I wanna make a supersonic man out of you

Don't stop me now I'm having such a good time
I'm having a ball
Don't stop me now
If you wanna have a good time (wooh)
Just give me a call (alright)
Don't stop me now ('cause I'm having a good time - yeah yeah)
Don't stop me now (yes I'm havin' a good time)
I don't want to stop at all
La da da da daah
Da da da haa
Ha da da ha ha haaa
Ha da daa ha da da aaa
Ooh ooh ooh

    My InterpretationThis song, I believe, is about someone's experience with four drugs: LSD, Speed, Marijuana, and Ecstasy.
    If we start off with the mood of the song, we notice that the song is fast, happy, and even motivational in some aspects. While this is not enough to properly create the summary that the song is based off of drugs, it contributes to the theme.
    Now, if we go to the lyrical content, we see that the link between the song and drugs is pretty strong. The stanza that begins with, "I'm a shooting star leaping through the sky/Like a tiger defying the laws of gravity..." exemplifies the side effects that are common with the drug LSD in that strange hallucinations are being reported by whoever the song is about. Secondly, the mentioning of the drug speed is taken literally here, for Mercury sings the lines, "I'm a racing car passing by like Lady Godiva/I'm gonna go go go..." He then goes into the chorus, which has lines, "Two hundred degrees/That's why they call me Mister Fahrenheit" and, "Don't stop me now I'm having such a good time/I'm having a ball..." The first part of the chorus constitutes that the song's subject is "baked" -- a term suggesting that one under the influence of drugs is experiencing the consequences. The second part of the chorus, where he speaks of having a 'good time,' also contributes to the theme of the response to drugs. After the chorus, Mercury sings, "Yeah, I'm a rocket ship on my way to Mars/On a collision course..." which is a nod to marijuana because it make people "high," like a rocket in space. As a mention to the final drug, ecstasy, the song has the lines, "I am a sex machine ready to reload/Like an atom bomb about to/Oh oh oh oh oh explode..." the link here is obvious.
    Overall, this song is, quite simply, about the cheerful first-person account of doing drugs.

    General CommentI honestly thing that this is a song that is all about a manic phase in bipolar disorder.

    When they talking about hypersexuality, feeling like they could jump over everything, do anything. It is a definate manic phase. Look up manic phase of Bipolar Disorder and you will see it totally relate to this.

    However, I do enjoy the interpretation about living life in the moment.
