Wayne's World (GEN)

Awful version, begins from the words "Bismillah! No, we will not let you go" and ends with the guitar solo after the words "Beelzebub has a devil put aside For me, for me, for me...".

Wayne's World (SNES)

In a few words, the quote from AVGN:

All-time worst butchering of Bohemian Rhapsody (facepalm).


Even worse than GEN version, this 16-bit tracks costs nothing to listen it. It has the same part of the song with Genesis version.

Lyrics

Although no game features lyrics, the original song had them (sung by Freddie Mercury).

(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.

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...

(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

Oh yeah, oh yeah (many times)

(Mercury)

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

(Mercury)
Any way the wind blows...

The words "Galileo figaro magnifico" is distorted Latin for "Galileo figuro magnifico", means "Glorify Galilean's image".
