I think it's Kool and The Gang song, about how a dog eats his bone on a winter's night...

Assuming you're serious - this is from Electric Fire. I'd always assumed it was, in part, about Freddie. And as such it makes me feel slightly sad.

yea, roger's tune it is about things like religion and so on, but chorus i think could be a bit about his old pal fred, Where are you now? we need you, tends to sum up Queen's situation. With all the talk of new singers, they sure could use him.

As well as another Roger's song 'New Dark Ages' could be great Queen track!

!Regarding "New Dark Ages" there was a rumour that John said he'd leave if Roger made Freddie sing it. Is there any evidence for that? I've listened to the song several times since I heard the rumour and can't believe there's anything there that would've upset Freddie.
