(Charles Whitman)
He killed his wife and mother, then packed up his supplies
Like food and guns and ammo, and went out taking lives.
At the school observatory, he went to the top
And killed sixteen people before he could be stopped.
Charles Whitman was the school tower hitman
Charles Whitman shot at people and hit them
Charles Whitman had a brain tumour in his head
Charles Whitman was the cause of eighteen people=B9s deaths.
He kept on shooting people, the police they tried and tried
To kill Charles Whitman, the sniper in the sky.
They finally snuck up on him, surprised him at the top
Then Charles Whitman was gunned down by a cop.
Charles Whitman was the school tower hitman
Charles Whitman shot at people and hit them
Charles Whitman had a brain tumour in his head
Charles Whitman was the cause of eighteen people=B9s deaths.
