"You Don't Fool Me" was one of the last tracks recorded for Made in Heaven and came about in an unusual way.
May has explained on his website that Richards more or less created the framework of the song single handedly, building from bits of lyrics recorded just before Mercury's death.
May has said that before Richards' work, there was no song to speak of.
However, after Richards edited and mixed the song (including a bit of harmonies recorded for "A Winter's Tale") he presented it to the band.
May, Taylor and Deacon then added their instruments and backing vocals and were surprised to end up with a finished song that had begun as nothing.
The style of the song is reminiscent of their 1982 album Hot Space, and a comment over that featured on their Greatest Hits III album.
The theme of the song could also be a continuation of the story told by prior Queen songs "Play the Game" and "It's a Hard Life".
