  • Queen to your King
    Don't be afraid to move away to safety
    I know you well, I can tell when your heart is feelin' lonely
    I've seen those knights in armor guardin' your door
    Oh, but I'm gonna keep on comin' 'til you can't move no more

    You can bait me, fake me, yeah
    But I keep on comin' at ya
    You break me, shake me, yeah
    I ain't movin' backwards
    Shake me, take me, yeah
    I keep on goin'
    'Til I hold you in checkmate once more, mmm

    I'm a Queen to your King
    Yes, I've been told that you use your pawn to hurt me
    Oh, nothing's been gained
    Oh, I can see that your Bishop's lies then wonders
    Oh, if he could stop me with the power he holds
    It ties me, it ties me over with his prison, his goal

    You can bait me, fake me
    But I keep on comin' at ya
    Just break me, shake me
    I ain't movin' backwards
    Shake me, take me, yeah
    I keep goin' 'til I hold you in checkmate once more
    Ooh, 'til I hold you in checkmate once more

    Bait me, fake me, aah
    But I keep comin' at ya
    Break me, shake me, aah
    I ain't movin', I ain't movin', I ain't movin'
    Oh, but I keep comin' at ya
    Take me, shake me
    I ain't movin', I ain't movin' backgrounds, yeah
    I ain't movin', 'cause I ain't movin' backwards, yeah, oh
    I ain't movin', oh, I keep on comin' at ya
    Yeah, aah, yeah, I ain't movin', yeah
    Break me, shake me, yeah
    I keep on comin' at ya
    I ain't movin', I ain't movin' backwards
    I ain't movin, I ain't movin Writer/s: NONA BERNIS HENDRYX
