I Don't Need A Gun
I don't need a gun
All I need is my forefinger and my thumb,
Imaginary bad guys I can shoot in the head
"Bang, Bang! " they are now dead;
It is a game that I played for fun.
A gun then made a loved one gone
When he took his life on his own front lawn,
My thumb and my forefinger then covered my face
I cried in both sadness and disgrace;
In America do I really need one.
I don't ever want to kill anyone
I don't want to take away anyone's dawn,
We all are from the same family of men
To kill and to murder is a cowardly sin;
I don't need a gun.
