Come Of Age

 

Hey, now, look I’ve come of age, I’m gonna get a gun,

and I don’t mean a small one – it’s gonna be such fun.

 

I’ll take it out in to the fields, blast away those cans,

and maybe bag a rabbit, or a deer to fill those pans.

 

And there I’ll spend some hours practising my shot,

soon it’s second nature, and I am smokin’ hot.

 

Back home and in my garden, the neighbour’s cat I spy,

I’d told her to keep it away and now it’s gonna die.

 

I’ve come of age and I’m no kid, no mam, I’m a man,

and I will bear a weapon now simply ‘cause I can.

 

I need it for protection, the world is full of thieving scum,

if they target my house, well they’d wish that they’d not come.

 

I’ve bullets now, aplenty, don’t need to be too sparse,

any opportunity I don’t need to let it pass.

 

And if there’s been something in my past, that went and caused me pain

it might well be I’ll take that gun and go there once again.

 

Perhaps a bit of payback – well, hell, it might make me feel better

they should have seen the future then there would not be a debtor.

 

There’s no point crying about spilt blood, I didn’t make the law,

I just went and got my gun for that is what they’re for!
