The Lyrics

Written in 1999; in the wake of the tragic Columbine shootings, Republicans and the NRA scrambled to try to scuttle any new gun control legislation
(instrumental intro)

In Littleton, folks are mourning
The G.O.P. right wing
Look for causes, but unable
To blame guns for anything

The NRA is always able
To bribe officials of this land
No other way you can explain it
Why firearms are hard to ban

Saturday Night specials are a tragedy
Saturday Night specials are the trigger-happy's fantasy

Republicans are nosy
Yet they all stay away
From any gun regulation
They fear the NRA

Armed lunatics got bolder
Such firepower in their hands
We lead the world in gun deaths
You've got to understand...

Saturday Night specials are a tragedy
Saturday Night specials are the trigger-happy's fantasy

(instrumental break)

They won't even ban assault guns
Because the far, far Right
Will quote the Second Amendment
And shout with all their might:

"The government will nab you,
Federal boys will bring you down
Better hang on your guns, so
You be free, unbound!"

Saturday Night specials are a tragedy
Saturday Night specials are the trigger-happy's fantasy
Saturday Night specials are a tragedy
Saturday Night specials are the trigger-happy's fantasy
