Sheer Heart Attack Lyrics

Submitted by level Up The Irons       Last modified by level Up The Irons
1. Brighton Rock (5:08)
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 will you stay
Tarry with me pray
Nothing 'ere need come between us
Tell me love what do you say?
Oh no I must away to 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

Oh rock of ages do not crumble
Love is breathing still
Oh lady moon shine down
A little people magic if you will

Jenny pines away
Writes a letter every day
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 spent my holidays
2. Killer Queen (2:57)
She keeps Moet and Chandon in her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built in remedy for Khruschchev and Kennedy
And anytime an invitation you can decline
Caviar and cigarettes well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice

She's a killer queen, gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
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 (she's a killer queen)
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 lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

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 out to get you

She's a killer queen, gunpowder, gelatine
Dynamite with a lazer beam
Guaranteed to blow your mind
Recommended at the price
Insatiable an appetite
Wanna try?

Wanna try?
3. Tenement Funster (2:48)
My new purple shoes
Bin amazin' the people next door
And my rock'n'roll forty fives
Bin 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 outa this place

I like the good things in life
But most of the best things ain't free
It's the same situation just cuts like a knife
When you're young and you're poor and you're crazy
Young and you're crazy...

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 outa this place
4. Flick of the Wrist (3:46)
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 you're 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 and taken a leg
All this time honey
Baby you've been had.

Intoxicate your brain with what I'm 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-collateralize, (big-time money, money)
Reduce you to a muzak-fake machine
Then the last goodbye

Flick of the wrist and you're 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, and taken a leg
All this time honey
Baby you've been had
5. Lily of the Valley (1:43)
I am forever searching high and low
But why does ev'ryone tell me no
Neptune of the seas an answer for me please
The lily of the valley doesn't know

I lie in wait with open eyes
I carry on thru' stormy skies
I follow ev'ry 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 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?
The lily of the valley doesn't know
6. Now I'm Here (4:10)
Here I stand
Look around 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?
Yes she made me live again Yeah!

A thin moon me in the smoke screen sky
Where the beams of your love light chase
Don't move don't speak don't feel no pain
With the 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 don't I love him so?

Whatever comes of you and me
I love to leave my memories 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 Queenie
7. In the Lap of the Gods (3:20)
Ah ah ah ah ah
Ah ah ah
Leave it in the lap of the gods
Ah ah ah

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
Leave it in the lap of the gods
Leave it in the lap of the gods
Lap of the gods
Lap of the gods
Lap of the gods
Lap of the gods
Lap of the gods
Lap of the gods
8. Stone Cold Crazy (2:12)
Sleeping very soundly on a Saturday morning,
I was dreaming I was Al Capone
There's a rumour going round, gotta clear out of town
I'm smelling like a dry fish bone
Here comes the law, gonna 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, he's gonna come and getta me
I gotta get me get up and run
They got the sirenes loose
I ran right outa 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
9. Dear Friends (1:07)
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 there'll be no crying soon
10. Misfire (1:50)
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 a hit or miss
So take your aim
Got to hold on tight
Shoot me out of sight
Don't you misfire fill me up
With the desire to carry on

Don't you misfire fill me up
With the desire to carry on
Your 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
11. Bring Back That Leroy Brown (2:13)

Big mama Lulu Belle she had a nervous breakdown

Put a shotgun to his head and unless I be mistaken
This is what she said

Big bad big boy big bad Leroy Brown

Bring that big bad Leroy back
Want him back
12. She Makes Me (Stormtrooper in Stilettoes) (4:08)
I love she makes me
She is my heart
She is my love
She is my love

I know you're jealous of her
She makes me need
She is my love
She is my love

Who knows who she'll make me
As I lie in her cocoon
But the world will surely heal my ills
I'm warm and terrified
She makes me so

I know the day I leave her
I'd 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
She is my love
13. In the Lap of the Gods...Revisited (3:42)

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
