Couplet 1:
I shot my lover in the head
Didn't kill him, but he's almost dead
Now he's bleeding on the bedroom floor,
Got the neighbors knocking at the door.
They said, "did you hear a gun fire?''
Said, "no", but theyя know I'm a liar.
They said they're calling 911
So I said, gotta hide my gun

Chorus:
Why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? Oh, why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? (x2)
If I turn myself in could I claim it was in self-defense? I don't think so
He had it coming with all of his running around

Couplet 2:
I shot my lover in the head
Found him with another woman in bed
You should've seen the look on his face
I took the gun from the hiding place
I let her goя - she was a disaster
After all, it was him I was after
He fell on his hands and knees
Begged I'm sorry, pretty, pretty please

[Chorus x2]
Should I flee the country and be a refugee
In Turkey, or Mexico?
He had it coming with all of his running around

[Couplet 1]

[Chorus x4]

Cause he had it coming with all ofя his running around
