The Lyrics

This guy needs to wake up and smell the coffee....
Heyyou nearly shot me, honey
When we were out with a deer hunting party
Yeahmistook me for a buck
I think that maybe you can't see right

Thendown at the firing range
I felt a bullet whizzing past my temple, now
Oh yeahYou nearly shot me now
You said your pistol didn't aim right
You nearly shot me
You nearly shot me
You nearly shot me

Geeyou're pretty well tooled up
You wear your Smith & Wesson with pride
Girlyou should be careful now
I think you hold your piece far too tight

ManI'm such a lucky guy
I've got a wife and lots of life insurance, now
Oh yeahyou've been so clumsy so
Please put that safety catch on at night
You nearly shot me
You nearly shot me
You nearly shot me
(Jeezbe careful!!!)


Howmuch ammo do you need?
We're only going for a short drive
GirlI've got to ask you now
What's with the new telescopic sight?

Babeyou've got me worried now
Intentions maybe not so innocent now
I saidwe're going fishin', so
Why do you need a spade and flashlight?
You nearly shot me
You nearly shot me
You nearly shot me

This is HILARIOUS, Kristof!! I used to hunt with my dad and brothers and they always yelled at me because I never watched where I was pointing my gun...easily distracted, you know...=)

This may sound a little anal on my part...but will the person who gave me a 4 for pacing please let me know where he/she thinks I went wrong? I just want to know....
AFW - March 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Looks like she's got the gun...and he'll get the roses...DKTOS...but a tricky story..

Haven't heard this in a while ( TOS, only Van Halen's cover ), but 555 anyway, espically since 8 other people gave you a 5 on pacing I wasn't going to dock you on my own ignorance. Funny too.
Kristof - March 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Thanx, Ant and AFW.....both of you HAVE to acquaint yourself with this song; it's punk a LONG time before punk was ever thought of, and an absolute classic!
Red Ant - March 08, 2005 - Report this comment
Kristof, even though I'm bewteen 25-35 ( dont want to give out too much info ), I listen to oldies/classic radio alot, probably more than rock now because most rock now is people trying to immitate whats already been done with few exceptions ( and they fail miserably in most cases ). My wish is that people here would listen to something other than the Beatles ( I know they do, but at 1000+ parodies now...) because there is alot more out there that's just as good if not better. I even asked my mother about this, if she was swept up in "BeatleMania" and she said no, but has several of their albums.

Well done, Kristof. Maybe the moral is ... don't have a life insurance policy on yourself with your wife as the beneficiary.
Stuart McArthur - March 08, 2005 - Report this comment
yeah, Kristof, doesn't it piss you off when you go to great trouble to make sure the pacing's exact, and someone doesn't recall the OS properly and marks you down - well I know the OS perfectly, and the pacing is perfect, my man - excellent, and brings to mind my theory that nobody has ever "fallen" off a cliff - ie. either jumped or pushed, with the story to the cops being "fallen" - 555

Stuart, thats why when I havent heard TOS in a while and see comments/votes ESPECIALLY on pacing that are fives, I don't dock them for MY own ignorance/laziness to listen to it to make sure its right and I get HIGHLY irritated when people bag me with anything less than a 3 on PACING because they dont like the song/topic/or me, or can't be bothered to listen to the song ( which are fairly obscure to most here but easily available ). While some songs are highly difficult to pace, it not the ability to read the words, the important thing is to play the song at the same time you read the paordied words to see how they fare. I have never given anyone less than a 3 for pacing, and songs that I dont know but I think are interesting topics or are from new groups, I abstain from voting and leave a comment as to why.

You hit the mark with this one, and your pacing was spot-on. I'm fairly certain the 444 bastard is just jealous of your brilliance...

Smashing job! A lot like "Weird Al" Yankovic's "You Don't Love Me Anymore" (an original of his), but I mean that as a complient--a major one!
