Been chatting with another fan from this board and the conversation steered towards guns. He says "put out the fire" and I, not wanting to be undone in knowing Queen songs, snappily reply "A gun in my pocket, don't get me wrong..."

Suddenly, the double meaning of that verse flashes before my eyes, but it's too late.

FUCK. [img=/images/smiley/msn/confused_smile.gif][/img]

Did you get into any embarrassing situations by not realizing a risque double meaning of a Queen verse until too late?

Yeah I know I got in trouble when I got home and said: "Mama I just killed a man" ;-)

hehe i remember that, you were thinking of hitman



I watched as fear took the old men's gaze

Hopes of the young in troubled graves

I see no day, I heard him say

So grey is the face of every mortal

LOL! Yes, that's the one.

I guess that's a downside of being a non-native English speaker. I'll never forget that one time I was in England and somehow came to the (erroneous) conclusion "to have one off the wrist" (heard in Monty Python's The Brian Song) meant "to drink a shot" and cheerfully proceeded to use it that way...
