15 Lyrics Written By The Band Queen To Live By

Queen has produced some of the most influential and motivational songs of all time. Even if you aren’t particularly a fan of the band, you have definitely heard their music. Queen’s songs have been used in all sorts of movies and other types of media. Freddie Mercury’s own life was an inspiration when you look at the difficult battle he fought, while still performing right up until the end. In honor of one of the greatest bands that will always hold a special place in my heart, here are some of their lyrics I strive to live by each day.

No matter where you pull Queen lyrics from, their most famous hits or lesser-known melodies, you can find beautifully written music. Freddie Mercury was a true artist and he had an equally talented band accompanying him. If you only have time to listen to one song by Queen, good luck because it is too hard to choose. From heartbreaking love songs to legendary rock anthems, this band could truly do it all.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)
