Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen – One of my all-time favorites

September 25, 2012

Here’s the Lyrics. Guess what? It was sung in the opening ceremony of the London 2012 Olympics.
Freddie the Lead singer was (cos he’s dead) gay but ..I don’t mind.

Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? 
Caught in a landslide, No escape from reality 
Open your eyes, Look up to the skies and see, 
I’m just a poor boy, I need no sympathy 
Because I’m easy come, easy go, Little high, little low 
Any way the wind blows doesn’t really matter to me, to me 

Mama, just killed a man, Put a gun against his head 
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead 
Mama, life had just begun 
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away 
Mama, ooh, Didn’t mean to make you cry 
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow 
carry on, carry on as if nothing really matters 

Too late, my time has come 
Sends shivers down my spine, body’s aching all the time 
Goodbye, ev’rybody, I’ve got to go 
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth 
Mama, ooh, I don’t want to die 
I sometimes wish I’d never been born at all 

I see a little silhouetto of a man 
Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the Fandango 
Thunderbolt and lightning, very, very fright’ning me 
(Galileo.) Galileo. (Galileo.) Galileo, Galileo figaro 
Magnifico. I’m just a poor boy and nobody loves me 
He’s just a poor boy from a poor family 
Spare him his life from this monstrosity 
Easy come, easy go, will you let me go 
Bismillah! No, we will not let you go 
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go 
(Let him go!) Bismillah! We will not let you go 
(Let me go.) Will not let you go 
(Let me go.) Will not let you go. (Let me go.) Ah 
No, no, no, no, no, no, no. 
(Oh mama mia, mama mia.) Mama mia, let me go 
Beelzebub has a devil put aside for me, for me, for me 

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye 
So you think you can love me and leave me to die 
Oh, baby, can’t do this to me, baby 
Just gotta get out, just gotta get right outta here 

Nothing really matters, Anyone can see 
Nothing really matters 
Nothing really matters to me 

  1. ..Think Queen is one of the greatest british rock bands.Had 2 favorites – 'Somebody to love' and 'Hammer to fall'.. and yeah, Freddie Mercury is (was) something else!Okay.. enough of the blabbing 🙂

  2. Hi Mukoro… Yeah, they are one of England's greatest. I don't really know much of their songs especially the ones you mention…but I'll check them out. I also love "I wanna break free" and "we are the champions- which was used as a theme song in one of the world cups in the 90s".
