Queen – Killer Queen lyrics

She keeps Moet et Chandon
In a pretty cabinet
"Let them eat cake", she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
Building a remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can't decline

Caviar and
cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

Chorus:
She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, Gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind (Anytime)

Recommended at the price
Insatiable in appetite
Wanna try?

To avoid complications
She never kept the same address
In conversation
She spoke just like a baroness
Met a man from China
Went down to Geisha Minor

But then again incidentally
If you're that way inclined

Perfume came naturally from Paris (naturally)
For cars she couldn't care less
Fastidious and precise

Chorus:
She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind (Anytime)

Drop of a hat she's as willing as
Playful as a pussy cat
Then momentarily out of action
Temporarily out of gas
She'll absolutely drive you wild, wild...
She's out to get you

Chorus:
She's a killer queen
Gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a laser beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind (Anytime)

Recommended at the price
Insatiable in appetite
Wanna try?
You wanna try.

    "Killer Queen" is a song by the British rock band Queen. It was their first big international hit, reaching number two in the uk and becoming their first us hit. Written by lead singer and pianist Freddie Mercury, it was featured on their third album Sheer Heart Attack and later appeared on the band's first compilation album, Greatest Hits.
    The song is about a high-class call girl. It has been characterized as "Mercury's piano-led paean to a Moët-quaffing courtesan". It has also been described by All music as the true beginning of Queen's "radio sound" and "recalls the cabaret songs of yesteryear, but also shows how Queen was fast becoming a master of power pop". Rock historian Paul Fowles has written that "Killer Queen", with its "sleazy Parisian imagery", allowed "free rein" to Mercury's "unique brand of rock theater". The song won Mercury his first Ivor Novello Award.
