Me and a Gun

5am friday morning Thursday night far from sleep
I’m still up and driving can’t go home obviously
so I’ll just change direction cause they’ll soon know where I live
and i wanna live
got a full tank and some chips

It was me and a gun and a man on my back
and I sang "holy holy" as he buttoned down his pants
You can laugh its kinda funny the things you think in times like these
like I haven’t seen BARBADOS so I must get out of this

Yes i wore a slinky red thing
Does that mean I should spread for you, your friends
Your father, Mr Ed

me and a gun and a man on my back
but I haven’t seen BARBADOS so I must get out of this

and I know what this means
me and jesus a few years back used to hang
and he said "it’s your choice babe just remember
I don’t think you’ll be back in 3 days time so you choose well"
Tell me whats right
Is it my right to be on my stomach of Fred’s Seville

me and a gun and a man on my back
but I haven’t seen BARBADOS so I must get out of this

and do you know CAROLINA
where the biscuits are soft and sweet
These things go through your head when there’s a man on your back
and you’re pushed flat on your stomach
it’s not a classic Cadillac

me and a gun and a man on my back
but I haven’t seen BARBADOS so i must get out of this
I haven’t seen BARBADOS so I must get out of this
