The Blind KingŪ - obscurer than thou

Does it mean this, does it mean that, that's all anybody wants to know. Fuck them, darling. I say what any decent poet would say if you dared ask him to analyse his work: If you see it, dear, then it's there. - Freddy Mercury

You know she thrills me with all her charms

When I'm wrapped up in my baby's arms

My little angel gives me everything

I know someday she'll wear my ring

So don't bother me 'cause I've got no time

I'm on my way to see that girl of mine

nothing matters in this whole wide world

when you're in love with a jersey girl
