Little darling well away or To a new home well away?

In the studio Brian sings "Little darling well away" and live Freddie switches off between the two. Also on the album lyrics it says "to a new home well away" so it's strange.


It's late, but it's time to set me free

It's late, yes I know but there's no way it has to be

Too late, so let the fire take our bodies this night

So late, so let the waters take our guilt in the t

It's obviously the one that's intended by, and originally sung by Brian.

Oh yes freddie changes this part of the song (And practically all the feeling also ha ha)
Not is the first time that freddie changes the lyric of a Brian song...  For example See what a fool i`ve been changes a lot between Live and studio version.
Anyway reply your question is the one... i`ve the A Night At The Opera lp with the lyrics and in is "Little darling well away"

Cheers!

i think "See what a fool..." is a bad example....cos the key different version is the BBC session...and they must have rehearsed that...so it had to have Brian's blessing
...and anyhow...it's not like it's all Brian's own work is it? didn't he acquire most of this song form somewhere else?
