It's a cold-hearted world that we're living in today
So many lonely people looking for a way
To fill the empty nights when the phone won't ring
We all want to fall in love, hear the birds sing.
So if you're feeling desparate, don't give up
Times, they are a changing and so is your luck.

Cupid's got a gun
Arrows wouldn't do
He's got the power love for you
It's a big big love
His aim is true
Don't try to run
Cupid's got a gun.

Don't you just sit there feeling sorry for yourself
Reading romance novels and laying around the house
Dreaming that the good parts were written just for you
Then waking up saying this will never come true
Stop your hesitating go out tonight
You know he's out there waiting
To get you in his sights.

Cupid's got a gun
Arrows wouldn't do
He's got the power love for you
It's a big big love
His aim is true
Don't try to run
Cupid's got a gun.

It's a real tough job helping people fall in love
That old bow and arrow just wasn't strong enough
Cupid wasn't stupid, he knew just what to do
Now he's loaded for love,
He's coming for you.

Cupid's got a gun
Arrows wouldn't do
He's got the power love for you
It's a big big love
His aim is true
Don't try to run
Don't try to run
Cupid's got a gun.

Cupid's got a gun.

Cupid's got a gun.
