Megadeth – Killing Is My Business lyrics

I am a snyper
Always hit the mark
Paid assassin
Working after dark
Looking through the night
Using infra-red
My target on you
Aimed at your head
$10, 000 up front
$10, 000 when I'm through
And I know just what to do
And ya know I'll do it too
Then I'm coming back for you
Back for you!
I do the "getting rid of"
Don't tell me why
Don't need to hear the truth
Don't need the lies
Now pay me quickly
And now we're through
It brings me great pleasure
To say my next job is you
Don't you know that
Killing is my business
And business is good (Repeat)
You'd better believe it

Killing Is My Business meanings

  • JordanFireStar
    This is a song about a hitman/assassin who gets paid to assassinate people. He doesn't care who he assassinates as shown by "I do the "getting rid of, don't tell me why, don't need the truth don't need the lies. Now, pay me quickly". "It brings me great pleasure to say my next job is you" suggests that he loves what he does, and loves killing people (especially since he makes money with it).
