Continue the muted strum technique in the verses.

         A      
I was sipping on a Whiskey when I got the call
    F#m
Yeah my friend Lex was lying in the hospital
       Bm
She'd been pretty sick for about half a year
         E
But it seems liked this time the end was drawing near

      A
So dropped my plans and jumped the next London train
   F#m
I found her laid up and in a lot of pain
     Bm
Her eyes met mine and then I understood
            E                       E7
That the weather forecast wasn't looking too good
      A
So I sat and spun her stories for a little while
  F#m
Tried to raise her mood and tried to raise a smile
           Bm                            Bm
But she silenced all my rambling with a shake of her head
          E                       E7
Drew me close and listen this is what she said now

   A             F#m
"You'll live to dance another day, 
          Bm                   E            E7
it's just now you'll have to dance, for the two of us,
    A          F#m     
so stop looking so damn depressed 
     Bm
and sing with all your heart 
           E
that the Queen is dead"

          A
Yeah she told me she was sick of all the hospital food
        F#m
And of doctors, distant relatives, draining her blood
     Bm
She said "I know I'm dying, but I'm not finished just yet, 
       E                          E7
I am dying for a drink and for a cigarette"
        A
So we hatched a plan to book ourselves a cheap hotel
        F#m
In the centre of the City and to raise some Hell
       Bm                        Bm                 E 
They waste to all the clubs and then when everyone else is long asleep
    E7
We know we're good and done

   A             F#m
"You'll live to dance another day, 
          Bm                   E            E7
it's just now you'll have to dance, for the two of us,
    A          F#m     
so stop looking so damn depressed 
     Bm
and sing with all your heart 
           E       Bm
that the Queen is dead"
E                              Bm 
   And South London's not the same anymore
E               Bm   
   The Queen is dead,    
E                       Bm                        E
   and the last of the great has finally gone to bed

             A
Well I was working on some words when Sarah called me up
              F#m
She said that Lex had gone asleep and wasn't waking up
    Bm
And even though I knew that there was nothing to be done
        E                                     E7
I felt bad for not being there and now, well, she was gone
      A
So I tried to think what Lex would want me to do
    F#m
At times like this when I was feeling blue
       Bm
So I gathered up some friends to spread the sad sad news
                      E           E7
And we headed to the City for a drink or two

And we sang

A               F#m
   "We live to dance another day, 
          Bm              E    E7
it's just now we have to dance for one more of us, 
A                 F#m
   so stop looking so damn depressed, 
     Bm
and sing with all our hearts, 
 E              F#
long live the Queen"
