Put Out The Fire
Queen Lyrics


They called him a hero
In the land of the free
But he wouldn't shake my hand boy
He disappointed me
So I got my hand gun
And I blew him away
That critter was a bad guy
And I had to make him pay

You might fear for my reason
I don't care what they say
Look out baby it's the season
For the mad masquerade
Put out the fire put out the fire put out the fire
Oh you need a bullet like a hole in the head
Put out the fire, put out the fire, put out the fire
Don't believe what your grand-daddy said

She was my lover
It was a shame that she died
But the constitution's right on my side
'Cause I caught my lover in the neighbour's bed
I got retribution
Filled 'em all full of lead

I've been told it's the fashion
To let me on the streets again
It's nothing but a crime of passion
And I'm not to blame
Put out the fire, put out the fire, put out the fire
You need a weapon like a hole in the head
Put out the fire, put out the fire, baby put out the fire
And let your sons and daughters sleep sound in their beds

You know a gun never killed nobody
You can ask anyone
People get shot by people
People with guns
Put out the fire, put out the fire, put out the fire
You need a gun like a hole in the head
Put out the fire, put out the fire, put out the fire
Just tell me that old fashioned gun law is dead

Shoot, shoot...

I feel this song gets overshadowed by the fact that it’s on the Hot Space album.

Timothy Marzili

Unfortunately, yes
Like all the songs on this album are overshadowed by Under Pressure lol

Ravi Kumar Rajpoot boy

🔝🔝🔝🐩🐩🐩🐩

Lex Soft

@Birgit Trolljenta That is why I think this album could not be considered the worst let alone a disaster. They still had 2 songs which maintained their usual rock style : Las Palabras de Amor and this song.

Christine Taylor

My fav album used to be jazz but now it indeed is hot space. My god I love this album !

Birgit Trolljenta

It sounds out of place on Hot Space. Fits more on The Works.

37 years later and the fire is still not put out. In fact, it's burning hotter than ever in the "land of the free" :(

Scott Hoffman
