All you women who want a man of the street
But you don't know which way you wanna turn
Just keep a coming and put your hand out to me
'Cause I'm the one who's gonna make you burn
I'm gonna take you down - down, down, down
So don't you fool around
I'm gonna pull it, pull it, pull the trigger
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
Too many women with too many pills
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
I got my gun at the ready, gonna fire at will
Yeah
I'm like evil, I get under your skin
Just like a bomb that's ready to blow
'Cause I'm illegal, I got everything
That all you women might need to know
I'm gonna take you down - yeah, down, down, down
So don't you fool around
I'm gonna pull it, pull it, pull the trigger
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
Too many women with too many pills
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
I got my gun at the ready, gonna fire at will
'Cause I shoot to thrill, and I'm ready to kill
I can't get enough, I can't get the thrill
I shoot to thrill, play to kill
Yeah, pull the trigger
Pull it, pull it, pull it, pull the trigger
Oh
Shoot to thrill, play to kill
Too many women, with too many pills
I said, shoot to thrill, play to kill
I got my gun at the ready, gonna fire at will
'Cause I shoot to thrill, and I'm ready to kill
And I can't get enough, and I can't get my thrill
'Cause I shoot to thrill, play it again
Yeah
Shoot you down
Yeah
I'm gonna get you to the bottom and shoot you
I'm gonna shoot you
Oh hoo yeah yeah yeah
I'm gonna shoot you down yeah yeah
I'm gonna get you down
Yeah yeah yeah yeah
Shoot you, shoot you, shoot you, shoot you down
Shoot you, shoot you, shoot you down
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooooooh
I'm gonna shoot to thrill
Play to kill
Shoot to thrill
Yeah, ooh yeah

    This song is about sex... Period. His 'gun' is his penis, he's gonna 'shoot 'em down', meaning he's going to ejaculate on or in the women (hence the "too many women with too many pills" line! He's gonna take 'em down, meaning he's going to bonk them all, because he's got a reputation as a cocksman, which the women know about; (they all talk to each other about who's the best in bed, you know). Reading anything else into this song is nuts. It's about an over sexed stud who can't get enough pussy.

    {shoot to thrill} for me it's the kiliing of past and the thought of the future that needs to be shot and all you have in hand is the present which is ur your raw cash and you get one moent to live, and that moment is now so give your best shot everyday and in everything that you do >>> tkc

    The song is about a bad ass mofo that bangs all the chicks and busts nuts inside of them for thrills. He has too many chicks on birth control so he can do that. The main reason he bangs these chicks is to kill that pussy and that's why they won't mess with anybody else because he's good at it.
