The Lyrics

As sung by Vice President Dick Cheney, who seriously wounded 78-year old lawyer Harry Whittington with his shotgun during a hunting trip in Texas, but refused to take blame for the incident:
(instrumental intro)

I need some cover for what I'd done.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.

(instrumental interlude)

I need excuses, 'cause I had none.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.

(instrumental interlude)

Birdshot hit Harry, and he's wounded bad.
News got out, though I spun.
This is the worst mess I've ever had.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.

(instrumental interlude)

Out huntin' quail just to have fun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.

(instrumental interlude)

The press gone crazy, and they're not done.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.

(instrumental interlude)

Birdshot hit Harry, and he's wounded bad.
News got out, though I spun.
This is the worst mess I've ever had.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.
Who shot the lawyer? My shotgun.

(instrumental ending)
