Neneh Cherry – Shot Gun Shack lyrics
[Verse 1]
Just fun and games
Took my name in vain
Nothing is the same
Just another day now
Fun and playgrounds
Bend the rules now
Know the rules now
Play the rules now
It's institutional resolutions
Lack of direction intersections
Pick up a gun you know you gonna use it
Know that gun it's gonna get loaded
Say my name before you pull it
Too late, you know, just took that bullet

Looking front to back
Through the shot gun shack
You reside too slow to run fast, run fast
Catching up with you
Too slow to move
It's gonna get you
The playground rules

[Chorus]
You can't cry now
Don't even try
Nowhere you can turn
You can't even run away
Two can cry now
Don't even try to ride
You can hide now
You can even turn away

[Bridge]
The shot gun, living in a shot gun shack
In the back, living in a shot gun shack
In the back, living with a shotgun
Living in a shot gun shack, living in a shot gun
Shack living in the back, living with a shot gun
Living with a gun, living with your back to the wall

Pick up a gun you know you gonna use it
Know that gun it's gonna get loaded
Say my name before you pull it
Too late you know just took that bullet

[Chorus]
You can't cry now
Don't even try
Nowhere you can turn
You can't even run away
Two can cry now
Don't even try to ride
You can hide now
You can even turn away

You can't cry now
Don't even try
Nowhere you can turn
You can't even run away
2 can cry now
Don't even try to ride
You can hide now
You can even turn away
