Don't Get 2 Close (2 My Fantasy)
by Ween

Album: Pure Guava (1992)
  • With lyrics about a daddy, a little boy and a fantasy, this song is often thought to be about child molestation. The band admits that the song "has a perverted side," but claims it is really an homage to grandiloquent songs like Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody" and David Bowie's "Ziggy Stardust."
  • Ween performed this in It's Pat: The Movie. The audience is swaying to the music, and Pat is naked, hanging from a scaffold during the concert. >>

  • Sean from Melb, AustraliaI don't get how it mocks "Bohemian Rhapsody" in particular. Seems more like they are bagging queen by saying that their fantasy would be to rape a little boy.
  • Ryder from Patricksburg, InWeen are underrated musical geniuses. This song rules!
  • Izabela from Rockville, MdCome on people!!! If one opens their eye when they are sucking d--k, what do they stare at?? A lion!!! Geeeeez. Then you know what the "candy" and the "surprise" are! You know those hard candies with something juicy inside? Yeah! You've never been a kid, uh... And I've seen Deaner make this circle with his thumb and index finger when they sing "don't get too close to my fantasy"... which was the last part of the puzzle that I hadn't figured out on my own....
  • Eric from Detroit, MiTrue Bohemian Rhapsody released in 75 but wasn't it rereased in the early 90's for the Wayne's World movie? So maybe that's what that person is thinking.
  • Howardc from Fairbanks, AkBohemian Rhapsody by Queen was released in 1975. Pure Guava by Ween was relased in 1993. That's a little more than a year.
