I'm going for:

dance

because we have:

No one's more queer than me.

queer=dirty, Dirty Dancing with Patrick Swayze

I can be a river, or a rain, water pours from me.

Riverdance, Rain dance, House of Dancing Water

Think I'm easy? I'll burn your tongue.

Easy dancing (?) and fire breathing is part of dancing with fire

    $\begingroup$ Correct! ...and yet somehow with almost none of my explanations! Queer was as in "queer as folk" and water pours was a tap (but yours is good), easy was "cake walk" and burn your tongue was "salsa" +1 $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 3 '16 at 16:17
  • $\begingroup$ so folk dance, tap dance and easy=piece of cake. vg $\endgroup$ – JMP Jun 3 '16 at 16:31
  • $\begingroup$ Well a "Cake Walk" is both a dance and "an absurdly or surprisingly easy task" $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 3 '16 at 16:39

My guess is

Twister or twisted.

No one's more queer than me.

Twisted can mean weird or eccentric. Being "on the twist" is British slang for being dishonest.

I can be a river, or a rain,

Twisted River is a book by John Irving. A twister is a kind of storm.

water pours from me.

There's a kind of lawn sprinkler called a twister. The Webster definition for twister mentions waterspout.

Think I'm easy? I'll burn your tongue.

I think this is a reference to tongue twisters.

$\endgroup$
  • $\begingroup$ Nope. Love the explanations though. Especially the tongue one. ...but actually, twist would've been another good clue. $\endgroup$ – Brent Hackers Jun 3 '16 at 16:07

Is the answer :

Cloud

because

queer as me

they are strange(random) in shape.

I can be a river,or a rain

It depends on the area where precipitation takes place, rain is normal, cloudburst can cause 'river like' situation.

Water pours from me = as explained above.

Think I'm easy? I'll burn your tongue

It was actually difficult to decode this line, so here's what I understood. Clouds are taken for granted, even though they are one of the best part of nature, they come in different variety, form beautiful shapes, cause rains, etc. And when they cause lightening, everyone is scared, the electricity from the thundering is of several thousand volts, can kill in an instant or at least cause high degree burns, even to tongue.

Is it

Ice?

No one's more queer than me

It can take a lot of forms (hence the strange) like iceberg, icecream, ice cube...

I can be a river, or a rain,

water pours from me

It can be a river, since most of the rivers are originated from Meltwater. And it can also be rain considered as precipitacion (see hail). If we consider ice in the form of a glacier, then water pours from it.

Think I'm easy?

I'll burn your tongue.

I can't find a noun or something referring to a particullar tongue burn caused by ice, so I can only trust the wisdom of Yahoo Answers
