Flick of the Wrist
Queen Lyrics


Dislocate your spine if you don't sign he says
I'll have you seeing double (double)
Mesmerize you when he's tongue-tied
Simply with those eyes, ooh ooh ooh
Synchronize your minds and see
The beast within him rise

Don't look back
Don't look back
It's a rip-off
Flick of the wrist and you're dead baby
Blow him a kiss and you're mad, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Flick of the wrist he'll eat your heart out
A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head
He's taken an arm and taken a leg
All this time honey
Baby you've been had

Intoxicate your brain with what I'm saying
If not you'll lie in knee-deep trouble
Prostitute yourself he says
Castrate your human pride, ooh ooh ooh
Sacrifice your leisure days
Let me squeeze you till you've dried

Don't look back
Don't look back
It's a rip-off, aah, aah, aah

Work my fingers to my bones
I scream with pain
I still make no impression
Seduce you with his money-make machine
Cross-collateralize, (big-time money money)
Reduce you to a muzak-fake machine
Then the last goodbye
It's a rip-off

Flick of the wrist and you're dead baby
Blow him a kiss and you're mad, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Flick of the wrist he'll eat your heart out
A dig in the ribs and then a kick in the head
He's taken an arm, and taken a leg
All this time honey
Baby you've been had

This is "Death on Two Legs" older sister.

it's like the same but different

A couple of thongs about these Management directed tracks: as far as i know there were three songs written about their contractual problems with the Sheffield bros. Them being: Flick Of The Wrist, In The Lap Of The Gods (revisited) and Death On Two Legs. Flick and Death both have nefarious/ominous riffs underscoring the main theme of the songs while Lap sounds more like a goodbye letter to their mgmt. All three were written by Freddie, all three use heavy riffs and all three mention someone trying to get the better of them. Freddie was pissed off and rightly so, what the Sheffield bros were doing to them was not right.

@Bigbertha 123 Get Down Make Love was just...Weird

I wouldn't go that far. There are a couple dull Brian May songs, Get Down Make Love sucks, Funny How Love Is feels insanely out of place on Queen II, and there are some other weak ones.
