Robbery - lyrics project

– based on a demo recorded track by Queen.
Proposed lyrics. Words in bold are audible lyrics in demo recording by Queen Productions. The rest are proposed content by Dominae Primus
I’ve always wanted to try my hand at his unfinished track for its rapid fire heavy guitar chops.  ‘Great King Rat’ is a reference to a Queen song. Since the subject is robbery, I included names of some notorious criminals to spice things up.

There’s been a robbery
Got away scot free
What a dirty job!

Nothing they can do to stop me
Nothing they can do
Even if they tried to stop me
I’ll be long long gone

Lightning flash fight
Thief in the night
Spoiling for a fight
None can stop me

Bane of your plight
I get thrills in the night
Source of your fright
None can stop me

Clyde for your Bonnie
Machine Gun Kelly
Floyd or kid Billy
None can stop me

Watch me help myself! (spoken)

Flick of the switch
Now tell me just which
Way to unlock it honey!
Don’t try to stop me

I know what from which
I know what it is
All down to me
None can stop me

I mean you no harm
I can be a real charm
Just let me have some
Don’t try to stop me

(run through the guitar chords)
Take that, take that, take that, take a bellyful of that
Take that, take that; take that, help yourself to all that
Rat tat tat, rat tat tat, rat tat tat, I’m the Great King Rat
Rat tat tat, rat tat tat, rat tat tat, rat tat tat tat tat

Watch me help myself! (spoken)

I’m the hand of larceny
My prize is scot free
It’s a dirty job!

Thanks to Queen for the inspiration.
