The Lyrics

(chorus)
I shot the goalie, but I did not shoot the left-winger
I shot the goalie, but I did not shoot the left-winger

All around in this rink town
They're trying to knock me down
They say they want to bring me in guilty
For the killing of a goalie
For the life of a goalie

(chorus 2)
But I say, I shot the goalie
But I had to use some good defense
I shot the goalie
And they say I used some Capitals offense

Goalie Thachuk always hated me
For what I don't know
He said, shoot it before it saves
He said, shoot it before it saves
I say:

(repeat chorus 2)

Freedom came my way one day
and I was out of luck
All of a sudden, I saw Goalie Thachuk
aiming to shoot me down
So I shot, I shot him down

I say, I shot the goalie
But I did not shoot the left-winger
I shot the goalie
But I did not shoot the left-winger

Reflexes got the better of me
and what is to be must be
Every night, the puck shoots through the net
But one day the goalie will save out
Yes, one day the goalie will save out

But I say, I shot the goalie
But I did not shoot the left-winger, oh no
I shot the goalie
But I did not shoot the left-winger, oh no

Arcade J - Well, despite my aversion to hockey I've got to go "5" across here. Good job. But are you sure it wasn't "Icing"?
