A I was sipping on a Whiskey when I got the call F#m Yeah my friend Lex was lying in the hospital Bm She'd been pretty sick for about half a year E But it seems liked this time the end was drawing near A So dropped my plans and jumped the next London train F#m I found her laid up and in a lot of pain Bm Her eyes met mine and then I understood E E7 That the weather forecast wasn't looking too good A So I sat and spun her stories for a little while F#m Tried to raise her mood and tried to raise a smile Bm Bm But she silenced all my rambling with a shake of her head E E7 Drew me close and listen this is what she said now A F#m "You'll live to dance another day, Bm E E7 it's just now you'll have to dance, for the two of us, A F#m so stop looking so damn depressed Bm and sing with all your heart E that the Queen is dead" A Yeah she told me she was sick of all the hospital food F#m And of doctors, distant relatives, draining her blood Bm She said "I know I'm dying, but I'm not finished just yet, E E7 I am dying for a drink and for a cigarette" A So we hatched a plan to book ourselves a cheap hotel F#m In the centre of the City and to raise some Hell Bm Bm E They waste to all the clubs and then when everyone else is long asleep E7 We know we're good and done A F#m "You'll live to dance another day, Bm E E7 it's just now you'll have to dance, for the two of us, A F#m so stop looking so damn depressed Bm and sing with all your heart E Bm that the Queen is dead" E Bm And South London's not the same anymore E Bm The Queen is dead, E Bm E and the last of the great has finally gone to bed A Well I was working on some words when Sarah called me up F#m She said that Lex had gone asleep and wasn't waking up Bm And even though I knew that there was nothing to be done E E7 I felt bad for not being there and now, well, she was gone A So I tried to think what Lex would want me to do F#m At times like this when I was feeling blue Bm So I gathered up some friends to spread the sad sad news E E7 And we headed to the City for a drink or two And we sang A F#m "We live to dance another day, Bm E E7 it's just now we have to dance for one more of us, A F#m so stop looking so damn depressed, Bm and sing with all our hearts, E F# long live the Queen"
