Lyrics

Shot In The Back

I’ve got a mean weapon, baby
And it’s lurking in my pocket
It comes on like a snake
And explodes like a rocket

I’ve got a mean weapon, baby
And we could play a fun game
You be the innocent bystander
And I’ll go insane!

She’ll take it on the run, she’ll take all I’ve got
You know, my baby loves guns ‘cause baby loves being shot!
And baby, you’ve been shot in the back (Shot, shot)
Baby, you’ve been shot in the back (Shot, shot)
Baby, you’ve been shot in the back (Shot, shot)
And I know you know you know I know you like it like that!

I’ve got a mean weapon, baby
And we made it to protect all of you
Of course, you know we actually have no intention of using this damned thing…
Unless those bastards make us have to!

She’ll take it on the run, she’ll take all I’ve got
You know, my baby loves guns ‘cause baby loves being shot!
And baby, you’ve been shot in the back (Shot, shot)
Baby, you’ve been shot in the back (Shot, shot)
Baby, you’ve been shot in the back (Shot, shot)
And I know you know you know I know you like it like that!
