Can someone please tell me what the three words that have been bleeped out when Freddie introduces the song "Death On Two Legs" are?

The first part is really edited. No offense to WhatMustHeThink, but the actual phrase is

"This is about a dirty, nasty man. We call him motherfucker. Do you know what motherfucker means? We call him, we also call him, Death on Two Legs..."

Yeah...the inspiration of the song was Freddie's frustration with their management at the time. There's some elaboration on it in the beginning of the "A Night at the Opera" documentary. Just to venture a guess as to what he said in the bleeped part..."This is about a stupid motherfucker, we call him...Death On Two Legs!"

Good point Stateside. I think because it's "cool" to be censored, it proves that you are an existing and somewhat an annoying and rebel entity. IMHO, I don't think QUEEN were that kind of band in 79 anymore...
