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...

    It's definitely not about a man seducing a woman, fact.

    He actually wrote/came up with this while he was getting ready for a date that he was going on with one of his male music producers. This is about another man it isn’t about a woman at all. Freddie Mercury didn’t actually come out to the public for a while but he was out to all of his friends/the band members.

    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.
