Lyrics

Although no game features lyrics, the original song had them (sung by Freddie Mercury). There are so powerful so music lacks many without this, really.

(chorus)

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...

(Mercury)

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!... (Any way the wind blows) 
I don't want to die,
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all.

(The most difficult part of the song imitated thousands of voices. In the concerts even the group often switched on the recording)
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 figaro
Magnifico!

(Mercury)

I'm just a poor boy and nobody loves me.

(chorus)

 He's just a poor boy from a poor family,

Spare him his life from this monstrosity.

(Mercury)

Easy come, easy go, will you let me go...

(chorus)
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... Never, never, never, never 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...

(long guitar solo. Mercury)

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye!
So you think you can love me and leave me to die?
Ooh, baby, can't do this to me baby.
Just got to get out,
Just got to get right out of here

(slower tune)

Oh yeah, oh yeah (many times)

(Mercury)

Nothing really matters,
Anyone can see.
Nothing really matters,
Nothing really matters,
To me...

(the tune became sad. Mercury)
Any way the wind blows...
(gong as suicidal gunshot. In the video Mercury, Tailor and May bows their hands sadly. All gone. The guy shot himself)

The words "Galileo figaro magnificent" ain't a "Galileo is a good barber" on English, as many people think. Galileo Galilei is irrelevant to this song. This is distorted latin "Galileo figuro magnificent", means "Glorify Galilean's image".
