    Default seen or scene

    Hi,
    As I am a fan of the Queen, I'm trying to study their lyrics, which is not easy. I found in the net different versions of the same line in their song Bicycle race:
    1) You say shark I say hey man
    Jaws was never my "scene"
    And I don't like Star Wars
    2)You say shark I say hey man
    Jaws was never my "seen"
    And I don't like Star Wars

    Could anyone tell me which one seems to be correct? And what does it mean?

    I would go for 'scene', meaning something the person liked.

    Thanks Tdol!
    It's not easy to interpret poetry, is it?

    Isn't that the idea behind it?
