Queen says some weird shit. What is Scaramouche?? and I didn't think Fandango was around in the 80's?? Carol Archer -Boulder, Colorado Yes, Queen is a weird but awesome band. In their Bohemian Rhapsody, they say: “Scaramouche, Scaramouche, will you do the fandango?” ... “Bismillah! No!” Scaramouche is a traditional clown character featured in Italian commedia dell'arte. He is a stock character in Punch and Judy shows and often gets his head knocked off of his shoulders by Punch. The fandango is a lively couples dance usually accompanied by guitars, hand claps and castanets. "Bismillah" is an Arabic word that means "in the name of God." It is used at the head of almost every chapter in the Holy Quran.
