  • Oh he gave up on arrows a long, long time ago
    Turns out I'm too hard to hit so he put away his bow
    I might just keep on running from here to Timbuktu
    'Cause he gave up on arrows and I ain't bulletproof

    Yeah Cupid's got a shotgun aiming at my heart
    I've been dodging bullets, I've been hiding in the dark
    Sawed off double barrel, trigger happy as could be
    Cupid's got a shotgun and he's pointing it at me

    He's sitting in that tree stand and his wings are camouflage
    I'm dug down in my foxhole waiting on his next barrage
    Must be open season, got a target on my back
    Think he's throwing love grenades and I'm under attack

    Yeah Cupid's got a shotgun aiming at my heart
    I've been dodging bullets, I've been hiding in the dark
    Sawed off double barrel, trigger happy as could be
    Cupid's got a shotgun and he's pointing it at me

    Yeah

    Well he's got me in his sights, I've got a red dot on my chest
    But little does he know I strapped on my Kevlar vest
    I pulled out my Remington and I loaded up these shells
    He's about to find out I'm a dang good shot myself

    Yeah Cupid's got a shotgun aiming at my heart
    I've been dodging bullets, I've been hiding in the dark
    Sawed off double barrel, trigger happy as could be
    Cupid's got a shotgun and he's pointing it at me

    Yeah Cupid's got a shotgun
    But right now he's running from me Writer/s: CARRIE UNDERWOOD, CHRIS TOMPKINS, JOSH KEAR

  • Robert from Kintore OntCupid. I was just having fun with Carrie. Fisher is probably why I couldn't make any headway. I said to her it's true. What's true. Bill Crosby. Men are always ah ah ah. Woman are always come here go away. They dress up but don't even notice a man. Remington was the first place the smugglers tried to buy guns for the soldiers in the Middle East. Before buying Russian guns. Ak. It was all fun till a guy showed up in a diaper asking for Timbuktu. Helped with paint guns etc. Life imitates art. Or art imitates life.
    Yours Poseidon
