The Golden Boy
Freddie Mercury & Montserrat Caballé Lyrics


The boy had a way with words, he sang, he moved with grace
He entertained so naturally, no gesture out of place
His road in life was clearly drawn, he didn't hesitate
He played, they saw, he conquered as the master of
As the master of his fate

The girl had an iron soul no-one could recognize
Material ambition that her gentleness disguised
She gave herself to him certain of his fame
Wanted him for luxury for limelight and his name

And then he sang to her

I love you for your silence
I love you for your peace
The still and calm releases
That sweep into my soul
That slowly take control

I love you for your passion
I love you for your fire
The violent desire
That burns me in it's flame
A love I dare not name

His rise was irresistible - yeah, he grew into the part
His explanation simply that he suffered for his art
No base considerations of some glittering reward
The prize was knowing that (his work) his work was noticed and adored

Hey
I love you (yes I love you) for your silence (for your silence)
I love you for your peace (for your peace)
The still and calm releases
That sweep into my soul
And slowly slowly takes control

He told the truth
Yes, he told the truth (and he told the truth)

Accepting every honor with (with) a masterly display (display)
Of well rehearsed reluctance to be singled out this way
He started to believe that he was all they said and more (and more)
She forgot, she forgot the reasons (reasons) she had wanted him before
Yeah

I love you for your passion (for your passion)
I love you for your fire
The violent desire
That burns me in it's flame (burns me)
A love I dare not name

The still and calm releases (releases)
That sweep into my soul (sweep into my soul)
That slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly)
Slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) slowly (slowly) slowly take control

And when at last they fell apart she wished that she could be
The hardened heart of yesterday, as cynical as he
By changing for the better she had changed things for the worse
The words that made them happy once now echoed, echoed as a curse
Aaahaaahaahaahaaa

The boy had a way with words
He sang, he moved with grace
He entertained so naturally, no gesture out of place
His road in life was clearly drawn, he didn't hesistate
He played, they saw, he conquered as the master of his fate

The girl had an iron soul no-one could recognise
Material ambition that her gentleness disguised
She gave herself to him certain of his fame
Wanted him for luxury, for limelight and his name

And then he sang to her

I love you for your silence
I love you for your peace
The still and calm releases
That sweep into my soul
That slowly take control

I love you for your passion
I love you for your fire
The violent desire
That burns me in its flame
A love I dare not name

His rise was irresistable - he grew into the part
His explanation simply that he suffered for his art
No base considerations of some glittering reward
The prize was knowing that his work was noticed and adored

I love you for your silence
I love you for your peace
The still and calm releases
That sweep into my soul
That slowly take control

Yes, he told the truth

Accepting every honour with a masterly display
Of well rehearsed reluctance to be singled out this way
He started to believe that he was all they said and more
While she forgot
She forgot the reasons she had wanted him before

I love you for your passion
I love you for your fire
The violent desire
That burns me in its flame
A love I dare not name

The still and calm releases
That sweep into my soul
That slowly take control

And when at last they fell apart she wished that she could be
The hardened heart of yesterday, as cynical as he
By changing for the better, she had changed things for the worse
The words that made them happy once now echoed
Echoed as a curse

The boy had a way with words he sang,

his rode in life was clearly drawn
he didn't hesitate! He played they saw
he conquered as the master of
as the master of his fate!

The girl had an iron soul, no one could recognize
material ambition, that her gentleness disguised
she gave herself to him certain of his fame
she wanted him for luxury, for limelight and his name

( and then he sang to her )

I love you for your silence
I love you for your peace
the still and calm releases

Almost everybody is commenting that Freddie is perfect in this performance (I agree obviously) but also Mrs. Caballé is amazing in here. Both artists were a perfect duo. ❤

@Alvaro Perez You said it my friend. VIVA Montse 👑. Arnold Bourbon Amaral

Alvaro Perez

It is not necessary to say anything about her. She is simply God

Arnold Amaral

Montserrat Caballe was considered by many opera aficionado the most incredible beautiful voice for two decades. She could sing anything and if you know Opera that's a very difficult task, trust me. Talk about being born with such an incredible gift & Montse nurtured it perfectly. VIVA Montserrat & Fredddy 💙👑💙👑 Arnold Bourbon Amaral.

Andy Candy

Freddie Mercury and Montserrat Caballe shared one aspect in their legendary careers; both had given us the pleasure of "enjoying the pure beauty of human voice and singing itself" - Mercury in rock music, and Caballe in opera. Can we find such "god/goddess of singing" nowadays? I doubt it!

tatiana roveda

Beautiful post- Freddie's last pure joy, I believe was singing with Montsy. We miss you both- ( Monserrat Caballe-RIP, 2018)
