  • She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me (uh)
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me (yeah)
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me (uh)
    She shot me, she shot me (get out the way, yo)
    Bang, bang

    Ah, there she goes again, the dopest Ethiopian
    In other words, she came through explodin' in the podium
    Dynamite Napoleon like sodium mixed with petroleum
    Slowly but surely, she was walking toward me
    Cut the convo short 'cause she had to wake up early
    But continuing the story, don't worry
    She gave me digits for her Blackberry
    "You're very handsome" is what she said
    And the way she looked in my eyes said, "Put me to bed"
    Oh my, oh my, I should have known when she said to me on the phone
    "You do not know me very well, but I would never hurt a fly"
    Then she aimed for my chest with love in her eye
    Said she aimed for my chest with love in her eye

    She was walkin' around with a loaded shotgun
    Ready to fire me a hot one
    It went bang, bang, bang, straight through my heart
    (Straight through my heart)
    Although I could have walked away
    I stood my ground and let her spray

    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang

    Scorpion, she's so hot, she's a scorch-ian
    Killing me softly, Lauryn or Kevorkian
    Couldn't tell if she's cuckoo or quirky, when
    I asked her her name, she said, "Call me Ten"
    Testing, testing
    Things just got more interesting
    She's dressed in a vest pin, double-breasted holster
    A very Western toaster
    She ain't nothing Kosher
    Ah, she lets me closer
    Hotter than a pepper-crusted samosa
    While I try to keep my composure

    She was walkin' around with a loaded shotgun
    Ready to fire me a hot one
    It went bang, bang, bang, straight through my heart
    (Straight through my heart)
    Although I could have walked away
    I stood my ground and let her spray

    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang

    Am I wrong?
    But what is love without the pain to go along?
    And what is pain?
    If not the reason for me to sing this song?
    And this song is for the weak and for the strong
    'Cause I was strong
    And still, she got me, she got me
    Bang, bang, she got me
    She got me, she got me
    Bang, bang

    She was walkin' around with a loaded shotgun
    Ready to fire me a hot one
    It went bang, bang, bang, straight through my heart
    (Straight through my heart)
    Although I could have walked away
    I stood my ground and let her spray

    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
    Bang, bang, she shot me
    She shot me, she shot me
