Giving this rock-opera classic a whole new meaning, literally.

Somebody with a lot of spare time has taken the lyrics to the world-renowned Bohemian Rhapsody, put them into Google translate, translated them into various languages then back to English again, and assembled the results in a new version of the six minute suite - seems like a lot of work! 

Some parts are relatively accurate:

queen google translate  

Others make the whole thing seem a bit random:

queen google translate  

queen google translate

queen google translate

queen google translate

queen google translate

And some are complete nonsense:

queen google translate  

queen google translate

queen google translate
