I know I will get a lot of crap for simply asking a song meaning question, but I will anyway.
I like the sound of Sweet Lady, but the lyrics make no sense to me. Do any of you have an idea of what this song is about? Besides the obvious answer of "it's about a sweet lady".
Cheers!

I think this is probably the only song for which Brian wrote lyrics for the only sake of filling the melody.


John hated HS. Fred's fave singer was not PR. Roger didn't compose 'Innuendo.' Witness testimonies are often inaccurate. Scotland's not in England. 'Bo Rhap' hasn't got 180 voices.

Who cares what the lyrics are really about. Read what you like into it.

I'm also interested in the cheese part myself. It's a shame they didn't dedicate a part about various types of cheeses... if they did then we'd take in the lingering smell of a number one hit... and the lingering smell of....cheese :S

Buy "The Making of 'A Night at the Opera'" on amazon for $9.99.

First of all, one of the best Queen documentaries I've ever seen, and goes in depth with every song on the album.

Brian does talk about the lyrical inspiration that eventually became "Sweet Lady".
