Bohemian Rhapsody, as Translated into Everyday English

Updated on October 14, 2012


Every time I hear Bohemian Rhapsody, inside I am stunned, confused, and interested. In this Hub I hope to clear up any confusion with the popular song by Queen, "Bohemian Rhapsody."

Bohemian Rhapsody

Lyrics Translated to English

Am I dreaming?

I am stuck in a sliding mass of earth

Stuck in everyday life

Open your eyes

Look up

I don't have a lot of money and don't pity me

I can be here or gone in a flash

I don't care about the wind

I just committed murder

I shot a guy

He was young

I ended his life

Mom, I'm sorry you're crying

If I'm dead tomorrow, act like nothing happened.

I'm sorry and scared

My life will end soon


I don't want to die

If I was never born, I wouldn't have to die

I don't care

I see a small, black outline of a male figure

Cowardly man, cowardly man- will you do a lively Spanish dance with me?

I'm scared of lightning and thunder

Mom, Italian astronomer

Mom, Italian astronomer

Italian astronomer, tuxedo kitten

Powerful person

I'm poor; my family is poor

He's poor; his family is poor

Save him from this monster

I can be here or gone in a flash; let go of me now

Muslim God, don't relinquish him

Muslim God, don't relinquish him

Muslim God, don't relinquish him

Don't relinquish him, never

Don't relinquish him, never

No, no, no, no, no, no, no

Mom, mom, relinquish me

The Lord of the Flies has a devil put on "hold" for me

For me

For meeeeeeee.....

You can't stop me and spit in my eyeball

You can't love me then stop and let me die

This is too difficult to do

I have to leave

I have to leave this place

Yes, yes

I don't care about anything and everyone can see this.

I don't care about anything

I don't care about anything.

      Very fun and clever, like your take on the song JRickert. You sure those aren't the back masking lyrics though lol?
