  • Danger, danger the Queen's about to kill
    There's a stranger, stranger life about to spill
    Oh no, move away from harm
    I need a spell and a charm
    Fly like the wind
    I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
    Kill the king
    Tear him down

    Kill the king, yeah
    Strike him down

    Power, power it happens every day
    Power, devour all along the way
    Oh no, move me out of harm
    I need a spell and a charm
    And fly like the wind
    I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on
    Kill the king

    Treason, treason, the specter looms again
    Treason, reason, the realm is safe and then
    Oh no, move away from harm
    I need a spell and a charm
    Fly like the rainbow
    I'm no pawn, so be gone, speed on and on

    Kill the king
    Tear him down
    Kill the king, yeah
    Got to take his crown
    Crown

    Kill the king
    He'll rule no more
    Strike him dead
    The people roar

    Kill the king, yeah
    Take his head
    Down, down, down, down
    Oh, kill
    Oh, kill
    Oh, oh Writer/s: George Powell, Ritchie Blackmore, Ronnie James Dio
