Are you gonna take me home tonight
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...

    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.

    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 is a song about the teenage groupie girls that essentially took care of the musicians every need. Google up Des Barres, Bebe Buell, plaster-caster and enjoy the read if you are a child of the late-60's & 70's. The groopies idolized the musicians, were their muses and had a genuine affection for the band members and in several cases the affection was mutual. Robert Plant, Jimmy Page, Rod Stewart, Mick Jaeger and others had longer term serious relationships with some of these girls when in U.S. on tour. Read the book "I'm with the Band" and other related stories if you care to know more about this rock & roll phenomenon. Grand Funk Railroad immortalized one of these special girls in the opening lyrics of "We're an American Band". Can you say and/or google "Plaster-caster"? LOL... i dare ya! If you're a prude you will blush. Guaranteed. Peace people.

    I think the song is either
    1. Girls like me with a fat ass
    2. Him being sexually abused by his nanny named Fanny. She made him a boy from birth.

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

    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."

    I think this song is about black and white nice big round bottoms that brain wrote about on his trips.

    Fat Bottomed Girls = FBG.
    Now let's say you replace bottom with a more commonly used word that is rated PG-13 instead of PG. What letter would it start with? And you replace the B with an A what word do you see?

    Not all Queen songs are about being gay. But some are. Like "I like to ride my bicycle"

    I think the song is about us black woman that have big butts... and the occasional other race of girls with nice bottoms.... I also think it's an anthem for us curvy ladies

    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 :)

    Wrong :p
    This song is about the true fans to music, the so called "fat bottom girls" who buy every album, and worship the band; not just the people who come to the shows. It is about how the fat bottom girls make "the rockin' world go round" literally by buying these albums. This is a tribute to those people.

    Oh and fanny his nanny was one of these girls, who opened him to music, and by making him a "fat" boy she is basically exposing him to music. fanny probably does not exist in real life.

    Its about being gay and liking men not women. A "Fat Bottomed Girl" is a man. They are going to let it "all hang out." At the end, they urge..."Get on your bikes and ride." Basically its about anal sex.
