about

An old song from 2006. In fact there's a first draft from as early as 2002, but in 2006 I completely reworked it to make it fit into a cabaret show. Fun to sing, a bit hard on the ears.

Track Name: Hail The Queen
HAIL THE QUEEN
You used to laugh at her limp wrist
But the queen has learned to swing her fist
Beware before you take the piss
The queen hits hard, and she won’t miss
She’ll make you choke on everything you say
And she’ll be standing in your way
Try to run, there is no hiding place
She has got so many sisters,
And her many, many sisters will smack you in the face
They'll smack you in the face

Hail the queen
All you people ‘round her limousine
Bow your heads and get down on your knees
You better shake your tambourine
The sissy’s dead, long live the Queen
You can't be kind of in-between
She wants to hear you scream “Ich dien'!”
You better shake your tambourine
Hail the Queen.

You used to beat her up in school
But she'll no longer be your fool
She took the throne and put you on a stool
She sure set out to rule
You try to push her, she won't move
Try to burn her, but she's fire-proof
You might resist or you might approve
But either way in the end
Either way in the end you'll be dancing to her groove
You'll be dancing to her groove

Get down on your knees or off with your head
Get down on your knees or off with your head
Get down on your knees or off with your head
