Glycerine Queen

Album: Can The Can (1973)
  • Born in the world of a fifty-dollar dream
    Tailor-made coat with a straight back seam
    Just can't resist the twilight life of a queen
    Takin' pocket money givin' shady secrets back
    Soft-spoken silhouette is part of the act
    Mother's undertaker wouldn't dig you a hole in the wall

    [Chorus]
    Glycerin Queen fightin' hard to win
    Glycerin Queen, Glycerin Queen
    What's the matter, Queenie, Won't they let you in?
    Glycerin Queen, Glycerin Queen

    Five will get you ten here on the prowl again
    Put your pot of gold in the lion's den
    Your parasite mind ain't the truly respectable kind
    Your life-style past is gonna get you soon
    Spend a few years in a padded room
    A book full of blues, bad memories to pass the time

    [Chorus]

    We all laughed at the Glycerin Queen
    We all laughed at the Glycerin Queen
    What's the matter, Queenie, Won't they let you in?

    [Chorus] Writer/s: SUZIE QUATRO, LEN TUCKEY
