Queen lyrics - Album: Sheer Heart Attack [1974]

Brighton Rock5:10


Happy little day, Jimmy went away

Met his little Jenny on a public holiday

A happy pair they made, so decorously laid

Neath the gay illuminations all along the promenade

It's so good to know there's still a little magic in the air

I'll weave my spell

Jenny you will stay-tarry with me pray

Nothing 'ere need come between us tell me love, tell

me love, what do you say

Oh no I must away with my Mum in disarray

If my mother should discover how I spent my holiday

It would be of small avail to talk of magic in the air

I'll say farewell

O rock of ages, do not crumble, love is breathing still

O Lady Moon, shine down a little people magic if you

will

Jenny pines away, writes a letter everyday

We must ever be together, nothing can my love erase

Oh no I'm compromised, I must apologize

If my lady should discover how I spend my holidays...

Killer Queen3:00


She keeps Moet et Chandon, in her pretty cabinet

Let them eat cake she says, just like Marie Antoinette

A built in remedy, for Khruschev and Kennedy

At anytime an invitation, you can't decline

Caviar and cigarettes

Well versed in etiquette

Extraordinarily nice

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime, ooh

Recommended at the price

Insatiable an 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 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

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime

Drop of a hat she's a willing as

Playful as a pussy cat

Then momentarily out of action

Temporarily out of gas

To absolutely drive you wild, wild..

She's all out to get you

She's a Killer Queen

Gunpowder, gelatine

Dynamite with a laser beam

Guaranteed to blow your mind

Anytime, ooh

Recommended at the price

Insatiable an appetite

Wanna try?

You wanna try

Tenement Funster2:47


My new purple shoes been amazin the people next

door

And my rock n roll 45's, been enragin the folks on the

lower floor

I got a way with the girls on my block

Try my best to be a real individual

And when we go down to Smokies and rock

They line up like it's some kind of ritual

Oh, give me a good guitar, and you can say that my

hair's a disgrace

Or, just find me an open car, I'll make the speed of

light out of this place

I like the good things in life

But most of the best things ain't free

And this same situation, just cuts like a knife

When your young, and you're poor, and you're crazy

Young and you're crazy (4 times)

But oh, give me a good guitar, and you can say that my

hair's a disgrace

Or, just find me an open car, I'll make the speed of

light out of this place

Flick of the Wrist3:19


Dislocate your spine if you don't sign

He says I'll have you seeing double

Mesmerize you when he's tongue tied

Simply with those eyes

Synchronize your minds and see the beast within him

rise

Don't look back, don't look back

It's a rip off

Flick of the wrist and your dead baby

Blow him a kiss and you're mad

Flick of the wrist, he'll eat your heart out

A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head

He's taken an arm, he's taken a leg

All this time honey, baby you've been had

Intoxicate your brain with what I saying

If not you'll lie in knee deep trouble

Prostitute yourself he says

Castrate your human pride

Sacrifice your leisure days

Let me squeeze you till you've dried

Don't look back, don't look back

It's a rip off

Work my fingers to my bones, I scream with pain

I still make no impression

Seduce you with his money-make machine

Cross collaterize (big time money money)

Reduce you to a muzak fake machine

Then the last goodbye

It's a ripoff

Flick of the wrist and your dead baby

Blow him a kiss and you're mad

Flick of the wrist, he'll eat your heart out

A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head

He's taken an arm, he's taken a leg

All this time honey, baby you've been had

Lily of the Valley1:43


I am forever searching high and low

But why does everybody tell me no

Neptune of the seas

Have you an answer for me please

And the lily of the valley doesn't know

I lie in wait with open eyes

I carry on through stormy skies

I follow every course

My kingdom for a horse

But each time I grow old

Serpent of the Nile

Relieve me for a while

And cast me from your spell and let me go

Messenger from the Seven Seas has flown

To tell the King of Rhye he's lost his throne

Wars will never cease

Is there time enough for peace

But the lily of the valley doesn't know

Now I'm Here4:14


Here I stand

Look around, around, around...

But you won't see me

Now I'm here, now I'm there, I'm just a..

Just a new man

Yes you made me live again

A baby I was when you took my hand and the light of

the night burned bright

And the people all stared didn't understand, but you

knew my name on sight

Whatever came of you and me

America's new bride to be-don't worry baby I'm safe

and sound

Down in the dungeon just Peaches and me

Don't I love her so, she made me live again

Yeah

A thin moon me in a smoke screen sky

Where the beams of your love life chase

Don't move, don't speak, don't feel no pain

With a rain running down my face

Your matches still light up the sky

And many a tear lives on in my eye

Down in the city just Hoople and me

Don't I love him so, ooh don't I love him so

Whatever comes of you and me

I love to leave my memory with you

Now I'm here

Think I'll stay around around around

Down in the city just you and me

Don't I love you so

Go go go little pretty (?)

In The Lap Of The Gods3:22


Leave it in the lap of the Gods

I live my life for you

Think all my thoughts with you and only you

Anything you ask I do for you

I touch your lips with mine

But in the end, I leave it to the lords

Leave it in the lap of the Gods

What more can I do

Leave it in the lap of the Gods

I leave it to you

Leave it in the lap of the Gods

Leave it in the lap of the Gods

I want you to

Leave it in the lap of the Gods (3 times)

Lap of the Gods (7 times)

Stone Cold Crazy2:16


Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning I was

dreaming I was Al Capone

There's a rumor going round gotta clear outta town

I'm smelling like a dry fish bone

Here come the law going to break down the door gonna

carry me away once more

Never, never, never get it anymore

Gotta get away from this stone cold floor

Crazy, Stone cold crazy you know

Rainy afternoon I gotta blow a typhoon and I'm playing

on my slide trombone

Anymore, anymore, cannot take it anymore

Gotta get away from this stone cold floor

Crazy, stone cold crazy you know

Walking down the street, shooting people that I meet

with my rubber tommy water gun

Here comes the deputy gonna come and getta me

I gotta get me get up and run

They got the sirens loose, I ran right outta juice

They're gonna put me in a cell, if I can't go to heaven

will they let me go to hell

Crazy, stone cold crazy you know

Dear Friends1:08


So dear friends your love has gone

Only tears to dwell upon

I dare not say as the wind must blow

So a love is lost, a love is won

Go to sleep and dream again

Soon your hopes will rise and then

From all this gloom life can start anew

And they'll be no crying soon

Misfire1:49


Don't you misfire

Fill me up

With the desire to carry on

Don't you know honey that love's a game

It's always hit or miss, so take your aim

Got to hold on tight, shoot me out of sight

Don't you misfire (twice)

Fill me up

With the desire to carry on

You gun is loaded and pointing my way

There's only one bullet so don't delay

Got to time it right, fire me through the night

Come on, take a shot

Fire me higher

Don't you miss this time

Please don't misfire, misfire

Bring Back That Leroy Brown2:15

She Makes Me (stormtrooper in stillettos)4:09


I love

She makes me

She is my heart

She is my love (twice)

I know

I'm jealous of her

She makes me need

She is my love (twice)

Who knows who she'll make me

As I lie in her cocoon

And the world will surely heal my ills

I'm warm and terrified

She makes me so

I know the day I leave her

I'll love her still

She is my love, she is my love

Who knows where my dreams will end

I'll follow as they grow

But the world will know how long I'll take

And if I'm very slow she makes me so

She is my love (twice)

In The Lap Of The Gods... revisited3:46


(Mercury)

It's so easy, but I can't do it

So risky-But I gotta chance it

It's so funny, there's nothing to laugh about

My money, that's all you want to talk about

I can see what you want me to be

But I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the gods, wo wo la la la oh

I can see what you want me to be

But I'm, no fool

No beginning, there's no ending

There's no meaning in my pretending

Believe me, life goes on and on and on

Forgive me when I ask you where do I belong

You say I can't set you free from me

But that's not true

It's in the lap of the gods, wo wo la la la oh

I can see what you want me to be

But I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the gods

Wo wo la la la wo

Wo wo la la wah wah ooh

But that's not true

It's in the lap of the gods

Wo wo la la la wo

Wo wo la la wah wah ooh

But I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Gods

Wo wo la la la wo

Wo wo la la wah wah ooh

It's in the lap of the Gods

Wo wo la la la wo

Wo wo la la wah wah ooh

But I'm no fool

It's in the lap of the Gods

Wo wo la la la wo

Wo wo la la wah wah ooh
