Queen – Bicycle Race Lyrics

Queen Lyrics

“Bicycle Race”


Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

You say “black”, I say “white”
You say “bark”, I say “bite”
You say “shark”, I say “Hey man,
Jaws was never my scene
And I don’t like Star Wars!”

You say “Rolls”, I say “Royce”
You say “God” – Give me a choice!
You say “Lord”, I say “Christ!”
I don’t believe in Peter Pan,
Frankenstein or Superman
All I wanna do is

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my

Bicycle races are coming your way
So forget all your duties oh yeah!
Fat-bottomed girls they’ll be riding today
So look out for those beauties oh yeah

On your marks get set go

Bicycle race bicycle race bicycle race
Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle bicycle bicycle bicycle
(I want a)
Bicycle race

You say “coke”, I say “caine”
You say “John”, I say “Wayne”
“Hot dog”, I say, “Cool it, man”
I don’t wanna be the President of America

You say “smile”, I say “cheese”
“Cartier”, I say, “Please”
“Income tax”, I say “Jesus!”
I don’t wanna be a candidate
For Vietnam or Watergate
‘Cause all I want to do is

Bicycle bicycle bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle, bicycle (c’mon), bicycle
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride my bike
I want to ride my bicycle
I want to ride it where I like

Thanks to Twist, Amanda for correcting these lyrics.

Writer(s): Freddie Mercury

The first single from the album, this song was released as a double-A-side single with “Fat Bottomed Girls”.

“Fat Bottomed Girls” references this song when Freddie Mercury shouts closer to the end, “Get on your bikes and ride!” “Bicycle Race”, in turn, has the line “fat bottomed girls, they’ll be riding today” in its lyrics as a back reference.

The official video for this track shows a bicycle race with nude women at Wimbledon Stadium. It was banned in some countries.
The beginning of the bridge uses a chord structure similar to the intro to their “Bohemian Rhapsody”.
