I can dim the lights
And sing you songs full of sad things
We can do the tango just for two
I can serenade and gently play
On your heart strings
Be your Valentino just for you

(Ooh love Ooh lover boy)
What ya doin' tonight, (hey...

    This song is about one of Freddie's first boyfriends. It details the way that he treated him. Seeing that this song was written by Freddie, a gay man, it is not likely that this song is about a female. In the lyrics he says "What're you doing tonight? Hey boy!", which seems to be referring to someone aside from Freddie, himself. A male someone. It is a fantastic song and Freddie enjoyed writing it. "It’s called 'Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy', and it’s in my ‘ragtime’ mood that I get a chance to do on every album and this time, this is something I’ve come up with this time around." -Freddie Mercury

    I think he can dim the lights and sing you songs....Okay, jk jk....

    He wants a girl to want him and basically promises to do all of these things for her to prove he loves her and he's saying he'd do a good job at keeping her satisfied in the "old fashioned" way.

    Well, if you ask me, this song is about a guy trying to seduce a girl by saying he'll do all this romantic stuff. And all the others are jealous. It's another love song, only better because it has a little bit of naughty in it.
