  • Alright now
    Uh hum
    My mama warned me about boys like you,
    It's the reason why I wear these high-heeled boots, yeah
    And let me give you a lil' piece of advice,
    My papa packs heat n he won't think twice, yeah
    Well why do you think they call me Jessie James? So much trouble
    You better stay away!
    Grab your hat, better get gone,
    But if you stay, you've been warned!

    I'm a bullet 'n' I'm headed straight for your heart, yeah eh!
    Be careful of what you start
    I'm a bullet 'n' I'm headed for your heart, yeah eh!
    It's gonna leave mark
    Be careful what you wish for, you get what you see
    Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
    I'm a bullet n I'm headed straight for your heart, yeah eh!
    Be careful what you start

    Well every now n then I make a man break a sweat
    Watch him work overtime, earn my respect, yeah
    'Cause I'm the kind of girl that you want to show off,
    I'll tell him off to some of hia friends with a Southern drawl, yeah
    Well why do you think they call me Jessie James? Sweet as a peach
    Impossible to tame!
    My finger's on trigger n you'll be to blame,
    'Cause I'm here to stay!

    I'm a bullet n I'm headed straight for your heart, yeah eh!
    Be careful of what you start
    I'm a bullet 'n' I'm headed for your heart, yeah eh!
    It's gonna leave mark
    Be careful what you wish for, you get what you see
    Is that a gun in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
    I'm a bullet 'n' I'm headed straight for your heart, yeah eh!
    Be careful what you start

    Yeah I'll ride where the wind wants to takes me
    Leavin' lovers in the dust every city
    'Cause my heart was like a ghost town, baby
    And now I met a man that breaks me
    (Well my mama warned me about boys like you
    It's the reason I wear these high-heeled boots)
    I'm a bullet n I'm headed straight for your heart, yeah eh!
    Be careful of what you start (be careful what you start)
    I'm a bullet n I'm headed for your heart, yeah eh!
    It's gonna leave mark
    I'm a bullet, baby
    A bullet, baby
    Oh yeah eh, oh yeah eh eh!
    I'm a bullet, baby
    A bullet, baby, yeah eh!
    I'm a bullet n I'm headed straight for your heart, yeah eh!
    Be careful of what you start! Writer/s: JAMES JESSIE, KATY PERRY, TED BRUNER, TREY VITTETOE
