Full instrumental but the following lyrics were missing -

"Oh I've been wandering round
But I still come back to you
In rain or shine
You've stood by me girl
I'm happy at home"

and towards the end, the line "I'm happy at home" line was missing as well.

Was there a release of this? Because they play on released tracks... and it's a US radio.

There was a very crappy bootleg made years ago titled, oddly enough, 'Made In Heaven', released before the official MIH album. It contained rare 'demo' tracks. What these ripoff artists did was simply unplug one channel, and place two mics in front of the other speaker.

Take out your ANATO disc and unplug a speaker for YMBF. You'll end up with the same effects.

Sound more like the Karaoke version to me.

Well, the chorus was there, but there was also the other parts. The karaoke version is missing a lot of the lines, besides the chorus. This has a lot of lines still. Just one standza and a "I'm happy at home" was missing.
