Nobody's got the gun
Nobody's trying to get the drop on anyone
Nobody's standing out on main street with the sun blazing down
And saying "There's only room for one of us in this here town"

Nobody's got to be the number one
Nobody's got to be the number one
Nobody's got to be the number one
Nobody's got the gun, nobody's got the gun

She may not understand
And she may want you eating from her hand
If she's got you in a corner
You can smell the smoke and flame
You reach for your revolver to do the same

You'll blow your love away forever, number one
You'll blow your love away forever, number one
You'll blow your love away forever, number one
Nobody's got the gun, nobody's got the gun

You may think love is hard enough
You may never get to rehearse
And you can do without this stuff
Making everything worse

She's just the same as you
She needs your love just like you want her to
You can't go playing poker with a pistol in your sleeve
You can't make somebody love you by threatening to leave

If you want a love forever, number one
If you want a love forever, number one
If you want a love forever, number one
Nobody's got the gun, nobody's got the gun

Yeah, if you want a love forever, number one
If you want a love forever, number one
If you want a love forever, number one
Nobody's got the gun, nobody's got the gun
