When I first saw your face
It turned my whole world upside down
You put my heart into a headlock
And you threw it on the ground

You stood and stomped, you stepped on it
Yet kicked it all around
Like some empty can of Miller
Or some mangy blue-tick hound

Yeah, but a rolling heart gathers no moss
Only shit and sticks and stones
So I left those days behind me
And I struck out on my own

Now, it's three o'clock in the morning
And you call me on the phone
You say your life has gone to horse shit
And you wanna come back home

Well, if you're thinkin' 'bout comin' down
Better think again, better look around
Don't go tryin' to mess with my head
Because I got myself a gun
And I'm gonna shoot you dead

See, I got myself another but
She ain't nothin' like you, dear
She don't feel the need to slap me
Or stick pencils in my ear

So what's she have that you
Ain't got to spur this little tryst?
Well, there's sanity for starters
Oh hell, I'll just make a list

And yeah, I'm gettin' married
Just let me clear the air
Hell no, you're not invited
But I know that you don't care

'Cause you'll be there with guns
And goofy ribbons in your hair
So I made me a big ol' sign says
'Crazy, jilted hag! Beware!'

So if you're thinkin' 'bout comin' down
Better think again, better look around
Don't go tryin' to mess with my head
Because I got myself a gun
And I'm gonna shoot you dead

Ah, shoot her dead, Mike

You think I'm overreacting
And you think I've gone too far
Well, that's something I considered
'Til you tied yourself to my car

I still see you in my rear-view mirror
Your hands and face all scarred
And it was just then that I realized
What a loon you really are

So, if you're thinkin' 'bout comin' down
Better think again, better look around
Don't go tryin' to mess with my head
Because I got myself a gun
And I'm gonna shoot you dead

Yeah, if you're thinkin' 'bout comin' down
Better think again, better look around
Don't go tryin' to mess with my head
Because I got myself a gun
And I'm gonna shoot you dead

I got myself a gun
And I'm gonna shoot you dead
Yeah, I got myself a gun
And I'm gonna shoot you dead
