about

"Queenie" is where the story begins...to unravel. Witness the beautiful and volatile Queenie, her ugly and even more volatile husband Burrs, and the fateful Sunday morning where they fuck, fight and decide to throw the party to end all parties.

lyrics

Queenie was a blonde
And her age stood still
When she danced twice a day
Twice a day in vaudeville

Grey eyes
Lips like coals aglow
And her face a tinted mask
A tinted mask of snow

What hips
What shoulders
What a back she had!
Legs built to drive men mad

And she did
And she did
And she did
And she did

Queenie had a man
She had a man named Burrs
He was a clown of great renown
Three-sheeted all over town

Oh yes
Burrs he was a charmer
Who only loved Queenie as much
As much as he could harm her

One grin
One gesture
And the house would yell
But his eyes were mean as hell

'Cause he was
Yes he was
Just because
Just because

Sunday comes too soon
Queenie wakes feeling shot
And though it ain't quite noon
It's already too hot

So tired
That her eyes stay shut
And when she calls her man
Her man calls her a slut

They fight
Then she says
Babe to make this right
Let's throw a party tonight

So they did, yes they did
And they did, yes they did
