Ahhhhh

There’s been a murder
Down in Queens
A young couple gunned-down
At the scene
Shot in the head
Ambushed in a car
They should at stayed
Back in the bar

Cops don’t protect you
Don’t have a clue
C’mon boys
Don’t forget article two

It’s the constitution
The right to bare arms
Get yourself a gun girl
It won’t do you no harm

Son of a bitch
Son of Sam
Son of a bitch
There’s blood on your hands

Doesn’t wear a hat
Always had close-crop
A doctor with a black bag
And all through the cops

Brunettes in the Bronx
They are running scared
Down on the floor
Cut-short that hair

Cops don’t protect you
Don’t have a clue
C’mon boys
Don’t forget article two

It’s the constitution
The right to bare arms
Get yourself a gun girl
Won’t do you no harm

Son of a bitch
Son of Sam
Son of a bitch
There’s blood on your hands
Son of a bitch
Son of Sam
Son of a bitch
There’s blood on your hands
