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.
