Lyrics

Oh, tonight I'm gonna show
Them what I'm made of, oh
The killer queen inside me's coming to say hello

Oh, tonight I will return
The fame and riches earned
With you I'd watch them all be burned
Woah, woah

Whenever I start feeling strong
I'm called a bitch in the night
But I don't need these 14 karat guns to win
I am a woman, I insist, it's my life

I can be, the queen that's inside of me
This is my chance to release
And be brave for you, you'll see
I can be, the queen you need me to be
This is my chance to be the dance
I've dreamed is happening
I can be the queen

I am wind and hurricane
The stormy sky and rain
When you run dry I'll flood your pain
Woah, woah

In between the moments of
The lady I've become
A voice speaks through the noise like drums
Rum pum pum pum

Whenever I start feeling strong
I'm called a bitch in the night
But I don't need these 14 karat guns to win
I am a woman, I insist, it's my life

I can be, the queen that's inside of me
This is my chance to release
And be brave for you
you'll see
I can be, the queen you need me to be
This is my chance to be the dance
I've dreamed is happening
I can be the queen

The que ee- ee -ee-ee ee- ee-eeen
The queen queeen queeeen
Queen queeen queeeen
Queen queeen queeeen

Starry night come inside me like never before
Don't forget me when I come crying to Heaven's door
I will fly on a challenger across the sky
Like a phoenix so you can remind them of the dream I bore

Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh
