"Queen - The Platinum Collection: Greatest Hits I, II & III" album at
Queen's, "'39"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
For many a lonely day
sailed across the milky seas
Why They're Misrhymed:
"Day" does not rhyme with "seas". Actually this is an easter egg: the song is about space travel on relativistic speeds and time dilation (remember Brian May is an astronomer and knows his stuff!). When you change the "seas" into something which rhymes with "day" - "way" - WHAM! You get it! Milky Way is the galaxy, and now the lyrics make sense.

Queen's, "'39"
The Misrhymed Lyrics:
In the year of '39, assembled here the Volunteers
In the days when lands were few
Here the ship sailed out into the blue and sunny morn
The sweetest sight ever seen
Why They're Misrhymed:
'Seen' doesn't rhyme with 'few'. To me, the lyric should have been 'the sweetest sight ever *viewed*'; this would have been a much closer rhyme while leaving the meaning intact.
