She keeps her Moet et Chandon
In her pretty cabinet
"Let them eat cake", she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Khrushchev 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 (naturally)
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

    General CommentRedShana's interpretation above comes fairly close to what I believe this song is about. Kudos RS! Well thought out and you don't miss much. I agree the song is about a high end prostitute. The prostitute is definitely male. People please, when interpreting something try to remember WHEN it was written and performed. This was the 70s. We had to rely on inuendo and be very clandestine, especially as regards what now would be called LGBT subject matter. Often the true meanings were laid between the lines, although I agree with RedShana, Freddie was pretty clear on most of this, for anyone who was tuned in and looking for it. Killer Queen is about a man who is a seemingly delightful very high end prostitute for men. Although I love the idea of the assasin someone had, I know that isn't really what the song is about. Also, someone said something about AIDS, um no! This song was written before AIDS was on anyone's mind. That didn't come until the 80s. Also, "killer" was a way of saying something was extremely good/cool, etc. As in, "did you see the new movie? It's killer, you got to see it." So, to sum up, KQ rocks out about a high end male prostitute for gentlemen, who is a real pleasant, playful, charming type to the lucky clients, and therefore, comes highly recommended.
