Your friends will say It's self defense And anyway it makes no sense With no hope of recompense The way you hurt me baby You always turn the other cheek Always acted mild and meek Ya always played me for a geek The way you dressed to kill Why don't you just get a gun Through this heart of mine Why don't just get a gun and shoot it Why don't you just get a gun And shoot it through this heart of mine You tried to stretch me on the rack I saw you laughing when I cracked You broke my will you broke my back On the wheel of uncertainty You tried to push me to the edge You wouldn't listen when I begged Why don't you push me off the ledge It's just torture baby Why don't just get a gun and shoot it Why don't you just get a gun And shoot it through this heart of mine Why don't you just get a gun Through this heart of mine Through this heart of mine Through this heart of mine Why don't you just buy a gun Why don't you just buy a gun and shoot it Why don't you just buy a gun Your friends will say it's self defense They say it's cheap and no expense Why don't you just get a gun and use it Why don't you just get a gun Gun
