I try to hide it so that no one knows
But I guess it shows when you look into my eyes
I don't know if there's some kind of innuendo in this line, but whatever "it" is must be something like a feeling or a behaviour.

Stacy's mom has got it goin' on.
She's all I want and I've waited for so long.
Stacy, can't you see you're just not the girl for me.
I know it might be wrong, but I'm in love with Stacy's mom.
This young kid is more interested in his 'girlfriend's' mother than he is the chick his own age! This could also be considered inappropriate in a sense.

You call me sweet like I'm some kind of cheese
I'm pretty sure Brian May was drunk when he wrote that line. When sober, he's far too smart to come up with such a grotesquely, geniusly bad line. Or are we supposed to take away from this that he is such a genius that he's even a genius at being bad?

Sweet dreams and flying machines in pieces on the ground
The name of his first band was 'The Flying machine'; this line is a callback to that.

The fool on the hill
Sees the sun going down,
And the eyes in his head
See the world spinning 'round.
It's "the fool on the hill" that mentally visualizes the earth's rotation as he sees the sun go down. The song is anti-Copernican I guess!

When hygienists leave on long vacations
that's when dentists scream and lose their patience
Obviously the songwriters were having fun with homophones ("patience" = "patients").

And when you're down and out (love one another)
And when your hope's run out (love one another)
And when you need a friend (love one another)
And when you're near the end (love)
According to the remake of Utopia's song, during the second half of the bridge part, each men's voices sound so funny to me! LOL!

They're shootin' little kids with toy guns.
The grammar here is actually ambiguous. Are the shooters armed with toy guns, or are the little kids armed with toy guns? If the shooters have the guns, then this is a misplaced modifier, implying that the kids are the ones with the toy guns.

Have you heard the news that you're dead?
No one ever had much nice to say
I think they never liked you anyway
1) If someone was dead, I'd think they'd know it. 2) Additionally, if they were dead, they couldn't hear you (unless they were already in heaven, then they might hear you) 3) [Speaking sarcastically] That's a real touching send-off. ("I think they never liked you anyway") These guys are just NUTS!

What you puttin' in your nose, is that where all your money goes?
I've never been a Prince fan (can't stand him) but this line in this song has always made me laugh. The fact that the sound of his voice is electronically altered just makes it even funnier. Cocaine reference obviously. But seriously don't do drugs people!
