Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics

Bohemian Rhapsody album cover

Bohemian Rhapsody lyrics were written by Freddie Mercury of Queen for the 1975 album A Night at the Opera. The song is in the style of a rock opera or perhaps even a tongue-in-cheek kind of mock opera.

The Bohemian Rhapsody lyrics have a very personal meaning to Freddie Mercury according to the rest of the members of Queen. Mercury, however, has never been forthcoming about his interpretation of the words in the song and has left it up to others to come up with their own meanings.

Some people have stated that the Bohemian Rhapsody lyrics are about the events preceding an execution, the Vietnam War or a grand fantasy that only Mercury and the members of Queen are privy to. No matter, as it is important that each of us read and assign our own meanings to the words and take to heart what is important to us about the song.

Bohemian Rhapsody Lyrics

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,
Anyway 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, oooo 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 everybody-I’ve got to go-
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth-
Mama oooo- (any way the wind blows)
I don’t wanna 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 frightening me-
Galileo, Galileo,
Galileo Galileo
Galileo figaro-Magnifico-

I’m just a poor boy 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
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 stop 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-

oooo, oo yeah, oo yeah

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

Any way the wind blows….
