"The Gun"
=====================
album _The Blue Mask_
(Lou Reed, 1982)

written by Lou Reed
=====================


        The man has a gun
        he knows how to use it
        Nine millimeter Browning
        let's see what he can do
        He'll point it at your mouth
        says that he'll blow your brains out
        Don't you mess with me
        carrying a gun
        Carrying a gun
        carrying a gun
        Don't you mess with me
        carrying a gun
        Carrying a gun
        carrying a gun
        Don't mess with me, mmmm..
        carrying a gun
        Get over there
        move slowly
        I'll put a hole in your face
        if you even breathe a word
        Tell the lady to lie down
        I want, ah, you to be sure to see this
        I wouldn't want you to miss a second
        watch your wife
        Carrying a gun
        shooting with a gun
        Dirty animal

        Carrying a gun
        carrying a gun
        Watch you face
        carrying a gun
        Carrying a gun
        carrying a gun
        The animal dies with fear in his eyes
        with a gun
        Don't touch him, don't touch him
        stay away from him, he's got a gun
