WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

 

Hey now you’re livin’ in the USA

You are one lucky son of a gun

It’s the land of milk and honey

it’s the land of endless fun

 

But many people here own a pistol

And some own a rifle too

You just might find a gun barrel

One day pointed at you

 

CHORUS

You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

Unless you wanna be the next one to die

 

Now you probably heard about New Town

Maybe even Columbine

It’s not hard to fathom those children

Could’ve been yours or mine

 

CHORUS

You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

Unless you wanna be the next one to die

 

Now we have the right to bear arms

The Constitution tells us so

And it’s a beautiful document

But it was written so long ago

 

Long before we had our own state troupers

The city pòlice and the national guard

It’s a mighty imbalanced equation

But the mathematics ain’t that hardå

 

CHORUS

You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

Unless you wanna be the next one to die

 

BRIDGE:

If almost anyone can buy a gun

The troubles gonna multiply

When everything’s said and done

Many innocent folks will die

They will die

The numbers don’t lie

The numbers don’t lie

 

CHORUS

You better GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

GET DOWN WHEN THE BULLETS FLY

Unless you wanna be the next one to die
