1, 2, 1-2-3...
Ooooooo. Over here...
Two feets they come a creepin' like a black cat do
And two bodies are layin' naked. A creeper think he got nothin' to lose
So he creeps into this house and he unlocks the door
An' out the man reachin' for his trousers, shoots him full of a .38 hole
Mister Saturday night special, got a barrel that's blue an' cold
They ain't no good for nothin', but put a man six feet in a hole
Big Jim's been drinkin' whiskey and playin' poker on a losin' night
An' pretty soon 'ol Jim starts ta thinkin' somebody been cheatin' and lyin'
So Big Jim commence to fightin', I wouldn't tell you no lie
Big Jim gonna pull his pistol, shot his friend there right between the eyes
Mister Saturday night special, got a barrel that's blue an' cold
It ain't good for nothin' but put a man six feet in a hole
oooooo and it's a Saturday Night Special
For twenty dollar you can buy yourself one too
ooooo here it comes...
ooooo lemme tell you all about it
Hand guns are made for killin' they ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like to drink your whiskey, you might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump all the people to the bottom of the sea
Before some 'ol fool come around here, wanna shoot either you or me
Mister Saturday night special, you got a barrel that's blue an' cold
You ain't good for nothin' but put a man six feet in a hole
ooooo it's a Saturday Night Special
and I'd like to tell you what you could do with it too
and that's the end of this song, yeah!
