    Ooh yeah yeah yeah yeah

    Hey I'm the hitman
    Stand aside
    I'm the hitman
    I want your life
    Ain't no escaping
    Don't run and hide
    There goes the neighborhood
    I'm gonna kill for your love
    that's right

    Hitman
    Now don't you cry
    I'm just it man
    And you might get fried
    Gun in my pocket
    Don't get me wrong
    I'll be your hitman
    I'm a fool for your love

    I'm a head shredder
    That's better

    Baby baby baby
    I'm a hitman hitman hitman

    Yeah - trouble in the East troubled in the West
    Struggle with the beast - what a thief what a pest
    Come back mother
    Nuke that sucker
    Yeah yeah yeah

    Who knows what I'm talking about
    Waste that brother
    All right
    Ooh
    That's the way to do it

    I'm the hitman
    I'm your prize
    But this hitman can cut you down to size
    Love me (baby)
    Don't be so cool
    Love me love me baby
    I've been to the hitman school
    Yeah yeah
    You're gonna make my day
    Gonna blow you away
    That's when the fun begins (hitman)
    Are you ready for the sting
    Gonna waste that thing (hitman)
    Hitman is king

    Go go

  • Mamakidd from UsaFreddie wrote hits. He was the hit man.
  • AnonymousI've read that the "hitman" in this song is the HIV that was ravaging Freddie's body at the time. Listen to the lyrics from this perspective and they take on a whole new meaning.
  • Lori from Greenville, ScI like in the song where he says "I'm been to hitman school"..love Freddie's yeah's at the end.
  • Jonathon from Clermont, FlI like the main riff in the song, and Freddy's interjections.
