Killer Queen Lyrics
In her pretty cabinet
'Let them eat cake' she says
Just like Marie Antoinette
A built-in remedy
For Kruschev and Kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You can't decline
Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in...

It's about Marilyn Monroe YOU FOOLS
thats why the reference to Kennedy and the stuff in that time period. Freddy LOVED Marilyn.

According to a terrible documentary, if you could call it that, about Freddie's loves (it's on youtube) - this was written about a "friend" of his called Eric according to this tubby lisping retard the song was written about him and Freddie said to him "I'm the queen and Eric you're killing me" and also because he kept champagne in a "fancy cabinet" - maybe it's just me but if someone like Freddie was to write a song about you I think you'd remember the right lyrics. :S

"A built in Remedy for Krutchov and Kennedy"....The woman in the song is like Helen of Troy.Since the Russians and the Americans were in a tense political situation-ie the cold war,she could ease everyone's tensions.Knowing about Kennedy's penchance for women,this makes sense.She is highly sexual,maybe even a sex-addict, definitely highclass with expensive tastes-either callgirl or deb gone wild,she is a mystery of charm,lethal in her prowess,and can be paid for.

â€œ People are used to hard rock, energy music from Queen, yet with this single you almost expect Noel Coward to sing it. It's one of those bowler hat, black suspender belt numbers â€“ not that Coward would wear that. (...) It's about a high class call girl. I'm trying to say that classy people can be whores as well. That's what the song is about, though I'd prefer people to put their interpretation upon it â€“ to read into it what they like.

"That song is of course about a high class whore...is there any other kind (laugh)" -Alice Cooper, Nights with Alice Cooper 2007

You could be right bout the drag queen but I doubt the prostitute would have caviar cigarettes and buy perfume from Paris! No I reckon it's about a conwomen that preys on men "to avoid complications she never kept the same address" and then kills them "guarunteed to blow your mind"

I've heard that it's about amphetamines, which is highly probable (and did explain some of the lyrics), but I'm still completely confused. Don't get me wrong, folks, I love this song, but the words are strung together in such a verbally staccato, disjointed way. Kruschev and Kennedy? What?!
Ughh, so confused!

Like half of all the songs by Queen, this one is about a prostitute which everyone wants to be with and will do anything for.
