I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and i wore white
He would always win the fight
Bang, bang
He shot me down
Bang, bang
I hit the ground
Bang, bang
That awful sound, bang bang, my baby shot me down.
Seasons came and changed the time, when i grew up i called him mine
He would always laugh and say remember when
We used to play bang bang i shot you down bang
Bang you hit the ground bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang i used to shoot you down
Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
Now he's gone i don't know why
And to this day sometimes i cry
He didn't even say goodbye he didn't take the time to lie
Bang, bang
He shot me down, bang bang
I hit the ground
Bang, bang that awful sound, bang bang
My baby shot me down.
