Em                                          D
Do you mean it do you mean it do you mean it

G                    G# (single note)
Why don't you mean it?

Am (B&D, E&G,           B&D,         F#&C) <---- two part harmonies
Why do I follow you and where do you go?

B D F(sus4) G                 B
Ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah ah

You've never seen nothing like it, no never in your life

Like going up to heaven

And then coming back alive

Let me tell you all about it

Oooh give me a little time to choose

Water babies singing in a lily pool delight

E                   Am
Blue powder monkeys praying in the dead of night

Here comes the Black Queen poking in the pile
Fi fo the Black Queen marching single file

F         G         C          A#   Am G
Take this take that bring them down to size
March to the Black Queen

C G Am Dm B

Put them in the cellar with the naughty boys
Little nigger sugar then a rub-a-dub-a-baby oil

Black on black on every finger nail and toe
We've only begun - begun

F         G        C            A#  Am   G
Make this make that keep making all that noise
Ooh march to the Black Queen

Now I've got a belly full

You can be my sugar baby

You can be my honey chile

Dm B Em 021000 020000 A7 D A D

F (F-A#)

F               A#        F
A voice from behind me reminds me

Gm              C7               F
Spread out your wings you are an angel

F               C           Dm        A
Remember to deliver with the speed of light

A Dm A   Dm  A  A#6 Am7 G      C
A little bit of lo  -   ve and joy

Everything you do bears a will

                #A         D#
And a why and a wherefore

Cm G  Cm G   Cm G        C/G
A little bit of love and joy

F                      A#     F
In each and every soul lies a man

         Gm          C7          F
And very soon he'll deceive and discover

F                  C      Dm
But even to the end of his life

A      Dm      A Dm   A   Dm C F G Cm/G A# D#
He'll bring a little love

D# Cm G Am
Ah ah ah ah ah

I reign with my left hand I rule with my right
I'm lord of all darkness I'm queen of the night

G               (F G C G)
I've got the power now to do
The march of the Black Queen
My life is in your hands I'll fo and I'll fie
I'll be what you make me I'll do what you like

I'll be a bad boy I'll be your bad boy

            Am                        D F
I'll do the march of the Black Queen

Am              C
Ah ah ah ah ah

Walking true to style she's vulgar abuse and vile
The Black Queen tattoos all her pies

Am                4765xx
She boils and she bakes

And she never dots her I's

C G Am C G Am Dm B7
La la la la la la la la la la la la

A7    G7

            C                G
Forget your sing-alongs and your lullabies
Surrender to the city of the fireflies
Dance with the devil in beat with the band
To hell with all of you hand-in-hand
   F        G      C             G      Am
But now it's time to be gone (la la la la) forever
Dm                E              F     G    C
La la la la...
