Killer Queen

Words & Music:

Freddie Mercury

          Cm               Bb7

She keeps Moet and Chandon in her pretty cabinet,

Cm                             Bb7            Eb

"Let them eat cake," she says, just like Mary Antoinette.

           Bb/D       Eb7/Db       Ab/C

A built-in remedy for Kruschev and Kennedy,

    Abm/Cb      Eb/Bb      Bb11

And any time an invitation you can decline.

G7         Cm          Bb7            Eb              D7         Gm

Caviar and cigarettes, well-versed in etiquette, extraordinarily nice.



F7      Bb     Dm/A   Gm    Gm/F Dm   Dm/F Gm              A7    Dm

She's a Killer Queen, Gunpowder, gelatine, dynamite with a laser beam,

G7                      C    Bb

Guaranteed to blow your mind, anytime, ooooh.

A7          Dm              G7          Cm       C Bb

Recommended at the price, insatiable an appetite,

          F    Bb/F    F7     Bb/F    F    Bb    F7    Bb/F

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 Minah,

Then again, incidentally, if you're that way inclined.

Perfume came naturally from Paris,

For cars she couldn't care less, fastidious and precise.





A    Dm    A    Dm    G7    Cm    G7    Cm

Eb/F    Cm    Eb/F    F    E/F    F

Cm    Bb    Cm    Bb    Eb

Bb/D    Eb7/Db    Ab/C    Abm/Cb

Eb/Bb        Bb7    Eb/Bb    Bb7


          G7            Cm          G7           Cm

Drop of a hat, she's as willing as, playful as a pussycat,

     Bb          Eb

Then momentarily out of action,

Bb          Eb             D7         Gm    F

Temporarily out of gas; to absolutely drive you

Bb  F Bbm          F                      

Wild, wild.  She's out to get you!


CHORUS: (What a drag!)  F    Bb/F  [repeat and out]
