I'm Going Slightly Mad
Queen Lyrics


When the outside temperature rises
And the meaning is oh so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you, oh dear
Are they trying to tell you something?
You're missing that one final screw
You're simply not in the pink my dear
To be honest you haven't got a clue
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
It finally happened, ooh woh
It finally happened, I'm slightly mad
Oh dear

I'm one card short of a full deck
I'm not quite the shilling
One wave short of a shipwreck
I'm not my usual top billing
I'm coming down with a fever
I'm really out to sea
This kettle is boiling over
I think I'm a banana tree
Oh dear
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad (I'm going slightly mad)
It finally happened, happened
It finally happened, uh huh
It finally happened, I'm slightly mad
Oh dear

Uh uh ah ah
Uh uh ah ah

I'm knitting with only one needle
Unraveling fast it's true
I'm driving only three wheels these days
But my dear, how about you?
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened
It finally happened, oh yes
It finally happened
I'm slightly mad
Just very slightly mad
And there you have it

When the outside temperature rises
And the meaning is, oh, so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you. Oh, dear

Are they trying to tell you something?
You're missing that one final screw
You're simply not in the pink, my dear
To be honest, you haven't got a clue

I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
It finally happened. Oh, oh
It finally happened
I'm slightly mad

Oh, dear!

I'm one card short of a full deck
I'm not quite the shilling
One wave short of a shipwreck
I'm not my usual top-billing

I'm coming down with a fever
I'm really out to sea
This kettle is boiling over
I think I'm a banana tree

Oh, dear

I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
Finally happened. Uh, huh
Finally happened
I'm slightly mad

Oh, dear!

Ooh-ooh-ah-ah, ooh-ooh-ah-ah

I'm knitting with only one needle
Unraveling fast. It's true
I'm driving only three wheels these days
But, my dear, how about you?

I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened
It finally happened
Oh, yes
It finally happened
I'm slightly mad!
Just very slightly mad!
And there you have it!

[Verse 1]
When the outside temperature rises
And the meaning is oh, so clear
One thousand and one yellow daffodils
Begin to dance in front of you, oh dear
Are they trying to tell you something?
You're missing that one final screw
You're simply not in the pink, my dear
To be honest, you haven't got a clue
[Chorus]
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
It finally happened, oh-woah
It finally happened, I'm slightly mad
Oh dear, hahaha

[Verse 2]
I'm one card short of a full deck
I'm not quite the shilling
One wave short of a shipwreck
I'm not at my usual top billing
I'm coming down with a fever
I'm really out to sea
This kettle is boiling over
I think I'm a banana tree
Oh dear

[Chorus]
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened, happened
Finally happened, uh huh
Finally happened, I'm slightly mad
Oh dear
[Guitar Solo]

Oo-oo-ah-ah, oo-oh-ah-ah

[Verse 3]
I'm knitting with only one needle
Unravelling fast, it's true
I'm driving only three wheels these days
But my dear, how about you?

[Chorus]
I'm going slightly mad
I'm going slightly mad
It finally happened
It finally happened, oh yes
It finally happened, I'm slightly mad
Just very slightly mad

[Outro]
And there you have it

It´s fantastic to watch Freddie display a healthy sense of humor during an exhausting battle for his life. He was not only a great artist, but also a very brave man.

@Sara Rodriguez this song conveys light madness which frees us from antidepressants. Well said Sara...the vidéo and the final notes conveys gentle delerium. A plague to be in Freddie s shoes. He should be with us for god s sake if the latter is more than a math formula before the Big Bang 💥
You see I m going slightly mad...

La locura es una liberación, no necesitas drogarte más.

@Jan V thanks for your considerate response praising Sire Mercury, rest assured that I will live by him till my death thanks to youtube, archives, his childhood, various succesfull studies , 1st performances as a teenaged boy, artistic skills, warmth, generosity towards his wife then compagnons...humility...Band Aids his peak....Those who point out his use of drugs cannot be in his shoes. "Under pressure " what a meaningful vidéo ....the show must go on with him....no translator. Greetings from France

@Laurence Gerbore Freddie Mercury was so brave and hardworker for music of QUEEN since he was so young & not even well knowed for his magical talent until he was so sick. All my respects for the greatest performer ever, the greatest frontman and lovely artist he was right til the end.

Laurence Gerbore

@Chris Jordan plus David Bowie and some others. According to our sensitivities of course...

You couldn't ask for a better Freddie Mercury than what he gave us in this video. Just months away from death, what does he do? He steps up and goes slightly mad, which ends up giving us one of his greatest performances.

Thank you, Queen.

Freddie was good at everything, singing, playing the piano and the guitar, riding his bicycle and even being a banana tree. God he was so talented.

Amazing song, staring at death that's getting closer and closer
