Fat Bottomed Girls Lyrics
All down beside that red firelight
Are you gonna let it all hang out
Fat bottomed girls
You make the rockin' world go round
Hey I was just a skinny lad
Never knew no good from bad
But I knew life before...

Queen guitarist Brian May wrote this. It's about a young man who comes to appreciate women of substantial girth.
May told Mojo magazine October 2008: "I wrote it with Fred in mind, as you do especially if you've got a great singer who likes fat bottomed girls… or boys."

THE SONG IS ABOUT FAT BOTTOMED GIRLS. what aren't you people getting? not every song written in the 70's has to have some background story. freddy was gay, it doesn't mean the women in the song were actually men. that's kind of a weird thing to think. i'm a big booty girl who rides a bike everywhere. the song celebrates women who are curvy, confident, and proud of it; not the beautiful blue-eyed stick-thin women that every other song about a girl is about. GET ON YOUR BIKES AND RIDE: show off that amazing big butt. very simple, people. don't think too hard.

I'm pretty sure Brian wrote the song, NOT Freddie!

Sorry people. Freddie Mercury explained this song a while back and it IS a song truly about “fat bottom girls”, regardless of whether he was gay or not! So hail to all fat bottom girls!

It means absolutely nothing but the words you see. It's about girls with fat bottoms.

How about fanny was his real nanny with whom he had skinny-boy-fat-girl sex, which was a sort of initiation into the world of big round boo-tay.....or maybe it was his youthful fantasy that he wished he had realized.

it's about Gibson guitars...hence the "fat bottom" portion of the song...misleading everyone in thinking that it's about volumptious girls riding their bikes :)
