Queen Bitch

Album: Hunky Dory (1971)
  • Ai-yah
    Oh yeah

    I'm up on the eleventh floor and I'm watching the cruisers below
    Oh well her heart's in the basement
    My weekend's at an all-time low
    He's down on the street and he's trying hard to pull sister Flo
    'Cause she's hoping to score, so I can't see her letting him go
    Walk out of her heart - walk out of her mind

    She's so swishy in her satin and tat
    And her frock coat and bibbity-bobbity hat
    Oh God I could do better than that

    She's an old-time ambassador
    Of sweet talking night walking games
    Oh and she's known in the darkest clubs for pushing ahead of the dames
    And if she says she can do it then she can do it
    She don't make false claims
    Oh she's a queen and such are queens
    That your laughter is sucked in their brains
    Now she's leading him on, and she'll lay him right down
    Yes she's leading him on, and she'll lay him right down
    But it could've been me, yes it could've been me
    Why didn't I say, why didn't I say?
    No no no

    She's so swishy in her satin and tat
    And her frock coat and bibbity-bobbity hat
    Oh God I could do better than that

    So I lay down a while and I gaze at my hotel wall
    The cot feels so cold, it don't feel like no bed at all
    Yeah I lay down a while, and look at my hotel wall
    And he's down on the street so I throw both his bags down the hall
    And I'm phoning a cab, 'cause my stomach feels small
    There's a taste in my mouth, but it's no taste at all
    It could've been me, oh yes it could've been me
    Why didn't I say, why didn't I say?

    She's so swishy in her satin and tat
    And her frock coat and bibbity-bobbity hat
    Oh God I could do better than that
    You betcha
    Oh yeah
