"Rain Must Fall" as written by and Freddie/deacon Mercury....
I can see it in your stars
Life is so exciting
Acting so bizarre
Your world is so inviting
Playing really cool
And looking so mysterious - honey
Your every day is full of sunshine
But into every life a little rain must fall
No problem
Uh, be cool now

Anyone who imagines
They can blind you with science
Bully you all over
With property and finance
But you have position
To call the shots and name the price - honey
You found success and recognition
But into every life a little rain must fall
Flo Jo

You lead a fairy tale existence
But into every life a little rain must fall
Be cool, ha, kiss kiss

Others seem to think
You are over dramatizing
Problems at work
So it's hardly surprising
There's little you can do
To alter their opinions - honey
You want a clean reputation
But now you're facing complications
'Cause into every life a little rain must fall
Be cool, get serious, wooh, alright

Play it nice and cool
Play it nice and cool, yeah
Chase me
Oh, one more time, ha ha, I like it
Leave 'em there

    General CommentThe song says that life is generally satisfying, but sometimes you have a bad time and you just have to get by and ignore it.

    The first part of each verse tells you life is amazing ("life is so exciting", "your world is so inviting", etc.). The second to last line in every verse tells you that "Into every life a little rain must fall", saying that you'll always have bad moments in your life. The last line tells you to "be cool" about it, just ignore it and "get serious".

    In the end, the message in the last line is strengthened by the repetition of "play it nice and cool".

    "Anyone who imagines
    They can blind you with science
    Bully you all over
    With property and finance"

    Here, the song is telling you to follow your heart (the first two lines), and ignore those stressful things in life like "property and finance".

    Flo Jo (not Flow John), like laridae mentioned, is a reference to Florence Joiner, considered the fastest women in the world that died in her sleep at the age of 38 very suspiciously.

    "Chase me"

    I don't know what that is supposed to mean. Maybe it's telling you to follow your heart again?

    PS: I love how Freddie can turn the motto "shit happens" into a song, and make it as beautiful as it is.

    General CommentThe song is about no matter how perfect someones life is - things can go wrong. (and the lyrics written there are wrong - it says Flo Jo aka Florence Joiner - the runner who won races at the olypics then died suspiciouly - not Flow John)
