Freddie Mercury – Mamma lyrics
Is this the real life
Is this just fantasy
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor boy, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go,
Little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me - to me

Mama, just killed a man,
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he's dead,
Mama, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Mama, ooo,
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come,
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time,
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go -
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Mama, ooo -
I don't want to die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all -

(Opera Section)
I see a little silhouetto of a man,
Scaramouch, csaramouch will you do the Fandango
Thunderbolt and Lightning - very very frightening me-
Gallileo, Gallileo,
Gallileo, gallileo,
Gallileo Figaro - Magnifico -
I'm just a poor boy nobody loves me
He's just a poor boy froma poor family
Spare him his life from this monstrosity
Easy come, easy go - will you let me go
Bismillah! No, - we will not let you go - let him go -
Bismillah! We will not let you go - Let him go
Bismillah! We will not let you go - Let him go
Will not let you go - Let me go
Will not let you go - Let me go
No, no, no, no, no, no, no-
Mama mia, mama mia, mama mia let me go -
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me -

(Rock Section)
So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh Baby - Can't do this to me Baby
Just gotta get out- just gotta get right outta here -

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters, nothing really matters - to me

    Firstly, l feel that mecury is singing about himself selling his soul and himself to the devil called Beelzubub,
    When he sang mama just killed a man, put a gun to his head. Now he is dead, he was talking about himself actually giving up his life, values and all he believed in and selling his soul to the devil.
    So the powers of darkness had a grip o n his life that he sometimes wished to escape, but there was no escape for him,.
    When he sang Spare his life from his monstrocity, these monstrocities are actually devils tormenting his life, he also pleas with them to let him go when he sang,.
    Easy come easy go - will you let me go, but the devils replied we will not let you go.
    In this song mecury highlight how he was an easy target for the devil, he calls himself a poor boy from a poor family, he was given riches through demon possession, hence the line, Beelzebub has a devil set aside for me, and easy come easy go, are the riches that easly came when he sold his soul.

    For me, the music was about his own conflict with his sexuality, He's was struggling to come to terms with it. I think when he says Mama I killed man, was just confessing his homosexuality, he was admitting to have given his self to another man and that way he was killing a man, (himself).

    I strongly feel Freedie had a premonition of his death. If you look at the words it describes Death by AIDS. Just killed a man, in my mind refers to Freedie having oral sex with someone when he knew he had aids. The gun is his Penis, pulling trigger is orgasm. Remember I said this was a premonition.
