Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon Lyrics

Play "Lazing On A Sunday Afternoon"
on Amazon Music

Words and music by Freddie Mercury

I go out to work on Monday morning
Tuesday I go off to honeymoon
I'll be back again before it's time for sunnydown
I'll be lazing on a Sunday afternoon
Bicycling on every Wednesday evening
Thursday I go...

    This is one of Freddie's more sarcastic songs. He loved playing with the vaudeville sound and romanticizing the finer things in life. He contradicts himself twice with his "painting in the louvre" line, first because of the obvious paradoxical statement and second because he is not actually "from London town", he grew up in Zanzibar! Everything in this song is exaggerated; 1 day of work followed by a week of galavanting to finally relax on a sunday afternoon, must be nice... 3(or 4 if you're picky) key changes, chromatic scales, major minor duality, 7th cliches, and more all jam packed into this 1:07 song. It truly is a work of art. ...................Vocal effects were done by playing normally recorded vocals and relaying them through headphones inside of a metal can with a microphone (from Making of A Night at the Opera documentary)

    It is just about a guy who works and usually has long week and then relaxes on Sundays!
    (Did you know when they recorded this, they put a cup around the microphone so it can sound like this?)
