"Famous Covers"

"If you could put a Queen song into the mouth of a famous historical personage, what and whom would it be?"

This was the suggestion of a new thread on QMS, the Queen Mail Service, in Feb 99 (thanks Nick "duh"), and this page lists the lines that were mentioned...

Some (using only the songs' titles, by Tom Odland) are from the "Queen titles used by other artists" QMS thread.

Depending on where you live, you maybe don't know all of them (I don't)... Hope no-one finds any of these too offensive... anyway, here they come (alphabetically):
