All my life you know
I haven't been very love strong
'Cause there's so many fights
That I fought and never won
So I decided that I should just give up
On trying to right your wrong
And word on the street is that she did to you
What you did to me?

Five, four, three, two, one...
Bang, Bang, Bang boy
You're going down, down, down boy
To the ground where you left my heart to bleed
Bang, she shot you,
Karma tastes so sweet

So unfortunately, for girls like me,
There are more like you
Bending and breaking the rules,
And we're making exceptions, too
But how does it feel?
To swim in your own tears?
You lied and you lied
And I died and I died
And now you know why

Five, four, three, two, one...
Bang, Bang, Bang boy

You're going down, down, down boy
To the ground where you left my heart to bleed
Bang she shot you,
Karma tastes so

Bang, Bang, Bang boy
You're going down, down, down boy
To the ground where you left my heart to bleed
Bang she shot you
Karma tastes so sweet

(Instrumental)

Bang, Bang, Bang boy
You're going down, down, down boy
To the ground where you left my heart to bleed
Bang she shot you
Karma tastes so
(Repeat 1x)

Bang, Bang, Bang boy
You're going down, down, down boy
To the ground where you left my heart to bleed
Bang she shot you
Karma tastes so sweet

    She got hurt by a boy who didn't treat her right. So the boy got hurt by a different girl. The song is about karma.

    I can relate to this song directly. The best part? The "other girl" was my best friend who dumped him after a week! I wasn't that pissed at her in the beginning anyway. We had a good laugh over that one.

    The object of the song was a cheat and / or left christina for another girl. The girl he chose over her then either cheating and / or left him for another guy. Word got back to christina so she is singing about what goes around comes around and is happy that he now see's the pain he put her through.

    Bang, bang, bang boy - you're going down, boy.

    Five, four, three, two, one -
    Bang.

    A tough girl learned to love a serial heartbreaker. He broke her heart and left it bleeding, and she's gotten over him and wants revenge.

    Love the beat, love the meaning, may christina forever reign with her awesome, inspiring songs and voice.

    - a.
