Why do the lyrics say "it ain't no place for you and me" rather than "it ain't no place for rock and roll" ? Why has this never been corrected?

There are a few like that...

'39, for exaple has different lyrics than what Brian sang on the album, but they are the same as what Freddie sang live.

I believe there are a few more, but can't think of them off the top of my head.

"you and me" doesn't even rhyme with "ain't got no soul though". Weird...

Seaside has lyrics printed differently than what Freddie actually sings. At least on the old vinyl gatefold I have.

I recall that on the Hollywood Records issue of "Queen", the lyrics to Doing Alright were TOTALLY misprinted in parts....

Read printed lyrics in 'Metropolis' soundtrack for 'Love Kills' and you'll see how many words Freddie 'forgot'!

I am a fan indeed. I'm not shocked by wrong printed lyrics at all. It's just something i saw when i was reading the lyrics..

Maybe Freddie just forgot the lyrics. I mean on the live at the bowl dvd he says "Action, give me" instead of "Action, this day" and calls the song action. At Live at Buenos Aires 2-28 1981 he totally butchered the lyrics to "Need your Loving Tonight" (well could Freddie really butcher anything, he could sing the phone book set to music and would be great)

They calls Bohemian Rhapsody as Bo Rhap, but not because they forgot full title actually...

"Action, give me" line - it's something called live improvisation...

Because live versions tend to be longer than the album version - Hammer To Fall, Another One Bites The Dust, Back Chat, Crazy Little Thing Called Love et al, Freddie has to have something to sing - so he ad libs !!!

Good topic - I can't get my head round some of Made in Heaven (seems to make no sense) - any thoughts?
