But I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy from a poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
Bismillah! No - we will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me
So “Bismillah” is God in Arabic?
I knew Freddie Mercury was gay, but I didn’t know he was Iranian!
Weird how we’ve been singing along to that tune for years and years isn’t it?
Maybe I need to start ordering some of those VHS sermons from those triple-digit Christian cable channels on how SATAN is using Rock n’ Roll to corrupt the youth of today.
I remember an interview years ago when the guys were asked the word meant, (The interviewer thought it was German)
The band said it didn't mean anything. They made it up so it would sound good.
I need more COW BELL!!
I could not resist.
He was born in Zanzibar, too, IIRC. Freddie had a lot of problems, not the least of which was that he was from a Muslim family AND gay....
My grand-dad always said rock 'n' roll was sent by the devil. He said it would corrupt us, take away our freedom, make us into lazy, uncaring sodomite sods. I used to laugh at him, and think he was a reactionary old fart.
But when I see all the leftist limousine liberal rock stars dumping on religion, the military, guns, freedom (for anybody else except themselves and their ilk), history, advocating every loose-moral cause known to man, not to mention the utter depravity of most rappers, I start to wonder: maybe the old coot got it right after all....
But the Nuge gives us hope that all is not lost!
"Queen album brings rock to Iran"
Bootleg albums made Queen one of Iran's most popular bands
Rock band Queen, fronted by gay icon Freddie Mercury, has become the first rock act to receive an official seal of approval in Iran.
Western music is strictly censored in the Islamic republic, where homosexuality is considered a crime. "
Well at least Iran is getting one thing right. IMO
IIRC, "Bismillah" roughly means "In the name of Allah".
I like The Apologetix' version of this song.
Is this a real guy? Is he just fantasy?
‘Cause of his grand size, no one’s safe from fatality
Open your eyes, look up at Goliath, and see:
I’m dressed for war boys, I need no infantry
'Cause I’ll meet the one you propose
Israelites, pick my foe
Anyway, I’ll win, so it doesn’t really matter to me, to me.
Mama, there’s still no man who can come against this threat
You might figure now we’re dead
Mama, Goliath is testing us
And now he’s gonna know we’re all afraid
Mama (oooo), he’s a mean and crazy guy
He’ll come right back again this time tomorrow
Daring us, scaring us- cause he wants to meet in battle.
Hooray! My time has come
Been a shepherd all my life-but I’m taking on the giant
Goodbye, everybody – but not for long
God will lead me all the while I face this brute
C’mon (David you’re a whimp though) I’m not gonna die
The One who wins my battle is Lord of all
I see a little silly shepherd, not a man
What are you trying to prove? You’ll be chewed up and mangled!
Send a boy to fight me? A very very tiny flea!
Gol-la-liath! Gol-la-liath! Gonna die you big galoot!
I’ll kick your butt!
I trust the Lord but nobody trusts me
He trusts the Lord but suffers from insanity
Daring to fight ‘gaist this monstrosity
Evil comes, evil goes- you will get deposed
I will not, no! I will not get deposed
Yes, you will (repeat) Your head will roll
No, no, no, no, no, no, no!
Come-to-me-a! Come-to-me-a! Let the eagles pick your bones
Beelzebub and his devils gonna fight for me for me for me
So you think you can scorn me and spit on my tribe?
So you think you’re above me just based on your size?
Oh, baby, you ain’t just duelin’ David
You’e gonna get it now- cause God’ll win my battle here
Oh yeah! Oh yeah! Oh yeah!
Guys I’m really flattered-yet it wasn’t me
God wins every battle- God wins every battle for me
David will be king soon...
