QUEEN


Killer Queen Lyrics

She keeps Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Kruschev 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

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 as 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

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

Freddie sings "gelatine" but gelatine is actually not flammable: it's is an animal by-product (powdered collagen). He might have meant "glycerine" which is most definitely flammable but doesn't rhyme with "killer queen". But who cares?! It's still one of the best early Queen songs! :)

It might sound like turpentine but as the implication is that she is 'explosive' (gunpowder, dynamite) it's more likely to be gelatine. Last time I checked, turps wasn't that explosive! I stand to be corrected of course! ;-)

It makes a difference if a word is spelled wrong or mispronounced, and I don't understand why people are getting so defensive and upset when errors are pointed out. If we didn't have standards for spelling, pronunciation and grammar, we would not be able to communicate.

It's not okay if it's spelled wrong. It's just pointless to actually care. If you think you know what it is, then that's what it is to you. Sing it that way and leave the Interwebs to themselves. (Gelatine, Geisha Minor are correct.And Mary is a name that has been around a long time before anglican)

I do believe that it IS Turpentine not gelatine and defiantly NOT any of the other variations I must have replayed the chorus about 40 times and there is a very distinctive 't'sound. Listen to it clos

Just so everyone is aware, geisha minah is correct. Minah means a memorial tower and geisha is part of the Chinese culture. It is basically a woman who is bred to give men company (not sex) while they are out at night or at plays and stuff. There is more to it but im not going into detail.
