about

Patriotic music for the 21st century...

lyrics

Gather 'round every one,
Put down that dumb, dumb gun.
It's something we all should know
Is how this story goes:

Boom boom bang and the bullet goes bang
Should be playin' but you're waving it, it's always the same
Like a big bad bum, are you ever having fun?
Watch your quakin' when you're shakin' up a dumb dumb gun
Boom boom bang another bullet goes bang
When you hear the sound it's makin' everyone is busy shakin'
It's a black powder boom in a flower child's room
But they're in it for the ratings and the revenue.

Through all of their thoughts and prayers
Are thousands more Wall Street shares
Sold by those billionaires
From their artificial boardroom chairs.

Boom boom bang and the bullet goes bang
Should be playin' but you're wavin' it, it's always the same
Like a big bad bum, are you ever having fun?
Watch your quakin' when you're shakin' up a dumb dumb gun
Boom boom bang another bullet one more
From a small bore ricochet it's bouncin' round the store
And a boom boom bam bite the bullet old man
When right, wrong really don't matter no more

Boom boom bang and the bullet goes bang
Should be playin' but you're waving it, it's always the same
Like a big bad bum, are you ever having fun?
Watch your quakin' when you're shakin' up a dumb, dumb gun
Boom boom bang another bullet goes bang
When you hear the sound it's makin' everyone is busy shakin'
When they're in it for the ratings and the revenue.
It's a black powder boom in a flower child's room

When the battle is lost or won
Oh will we come undone?
A message for everyone:
Put down that multi-megaton gun!

Boom boom bang and the bullet goes bang
Should be playin' but you're waving it, it's always the same
Like a big bad bum, are you ever having fun?
Watch your quakin' when you're shakin' up a dumb, dumb gun
Boom boom bang another bullet goes bang
From a hollow-headed barrel full of swagger and slang
It's with a bam boom bell bite the bullet old gal
It's time we faced this little silver bullet song so well
