Another One Bites the Dust
Queen Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh, let's go

Steve walks warily down the street
With the brim pulled way down low
Ain't no sound but the sound of his feet
Machine guns ready to go

Are you ready, hey, are you ready for this?
Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat, yeah

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

How do you think I'm going to get along
Without you when you're gone?
You took me for everything that I had
And kicked me out on my own

Are you happy, are you satisfied?
How long can you stand the heat?
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
To the sound of the beat

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust
Hey, I'm gonna get you, too
Another one bites the dust

Hey
Oh, take it
Bite the dust
Kinda dusty

Hey

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust, ow
Another one bites the dust, hey-hey
Another one bites the dust, eh-eh

Ooh, shout out
There are plenty of ways that you can hurt a man
And bring him to the ground
You can beat him, you can cheat him
You can treat him bad and then leave him when he's down

But I'm ready, yes, I'm ready for you
I'm standing on my own two feet
Out of the doorway the bullets rip
Repeating to the sound of the beat, oh, yeah

Another one bites the dust
Another one bites the dust
And another one gone, and another one gone
Another one bites the dust, yeah
Hey, I'm gonna get you too
Another one bites the dust

Ooh, shoot out




Hey-hey
All right

Overall Meaning

The song “Another One Bites the Dust” by Queen is a disco-funk rock anthem from their eighth studio album, The Game. The song is widely considered Queen’s most popular song and is interpreted in different ways by different people. Some people speculate that the song is about a gunfighter while others think the song is about how cruel the world can be. The song begins with Steve walking warily down the street, with the brim of his hat pulled way down low, with machine guns ready to go. As he walks, bullets rip out of the doorway to the sound of the beat. Then, the chorus of the song brings about the phrase “Another one bites the dust” which is chanted multiple times.


The second verse deals with one person asking the other how they think they’re going to get along without the other person when they’re gone. The person being asked took everything they had and kicked them out on their own. The lyrics seem to indicate that the other person is glad to be rid of the first person and is happy now. The chorus then comes back in with the repeated phrase “Another one bites the dust.”


The third verse expresses the idea that there are plenty of ways to hurt someone and bring them down, but the person singing is ready for them. They are standing on their own two feet and the bullets rip out of the doorway to the sound of the beat. The song ends with another round of the chorus and a final shout-out from the band.

My name is Yoshikage Kira. I’m 33 years old. My house is in the northeast section of Morioh, where all the villas are, and I am not married. I work as an employee for the Kame Yu department stores, and I get home every day by 8 PM at the latest. I don’t smoke, but I occasionally drink. I’m in bed by 11 PM, and make sure I get eight hours of sleep, no matter what. After having a glass of warm milk and doing about twenty minutes of stretches before going to bed, I usually have no problems sleeping until morning. Just like a baby, I wake up without any fatigue or stress in the morning.

I was told there were no issues at my last check-up. I’m trying to explain that I’m a person who wishes to live a very quiet life. I take care not to trouble myself with any enemies, like winning and losing, that would cause me to lose sleep at night. That is how I deal with society, and I know that is what brings me happiness. Although, if I were to fight I wouldn’t lose to anyone.
