Words and music by Freddie Mercury
Death on Two Legs Chords Transcribed by Shane McDonald
Details : I transcribed the Death on Two Legs Chords in 1995 but there is a lot more to it than I first thought. I recently found chords I didn’t hear when I first transcribed it. The Piano pieces are described in such a way that you can play them as easily as possible.I recorded a 20 second clip of the intro – available below.
Intro : (piano : fade in - played as a 4 note arpeggio based on the chord) BAR Lines: | | | | | Ebm F#/C# C#sus4 C# Fm/C C Em/B **-**-** G/D Note : **-**-** Indicates 6 piano bass notes which are to be played here before playing the G/D. After playing the G/D there are 7 treble notes G G A A B B D played
For **-**-** Play : B Bb B C# B D
Guitar : Bass notes ( G D G C# ) repeat 4 times last time play D note after C#
Note : for these piano pieces it is easier to play the Bm chord and bass
notes together if you cross over your Hands .i.e play the Bm chord using
left and bass notes with right hand.
piano riff 1 : play Bm chord using Left Hand (in the rhythm of Killer Queen). Bass noted (RH) : B F# F Bb F# A G# B D F# G D F# X 2 piano riff 2 : play Bm using Left Hand. Bass noted (RH) : B F# G ( usually repeated about 4 times) Bm (piano riff 2) You suck my blood like a leech You break the law and you preach Screw my brain till it hurts Gm You've taken all my money F# And you want more D Misguided old mule with your pig headed rules With your narrow minded cronies Gm Cm Who are fools of the first division (use piano riff 1) Bm Death on two legs You're tearing me apart Death on two legs A D You've never had a heart of your own F#7 Em Bm Em Bm Kill joy bad guy big talking small fry A You're just an old barrow boy D Have you found a new toy to replace me? Can you face me? Bm F# But now you can kiss my ass goodbye Feel good are you satisfied? Em Bm Em Bm Do you feel like suicide? (I think you should) A Is your conscience all right Does it plague you at night? D F#7 Do you feel good feel good? (NC) Bm (piano riff 2) You talk like a big business tycoon You're just a hot air balloon So no one gives you a damn Gm You're just an overgrown schoolboy F# Let me tan your hide D A dog with disease You're the king of the 'sleaze' Put your money where your mouth is Gm Mister know-all Was the fin on your back Cm No Chord Part of the deal? (Shark) Bm Death on two legs You're tearing me apart Death on two legs A D You've never had a heart (you never did) of your own (Right from the start) F#7 Insane you should be put inside Em Bm Em Bm You're a sewer rat decaying in a cesspool of pride A Should be made unemployed Then make yourself null and void D F#7 Make me feel good I feel good
