The Lyrics

His name was Axl, he was a rockstar.
With a bandana in his hair and a kilt cut down to there.
He wailed like a banshee, and did the snake dance.
And while he tried to be a star
Izzy backed him up on guitar.
And down in Hollywood, they did whatever they could.
They were young and they had each other-
Soon they would have much more!

Chorus:

They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses (Guns N' Roses)
From out of L.A and Indiana (here)
They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses
Rockin' and Rollin' was always in fashion
They were Guns.... they made it big
GunsGuns N' Roses

His name was Slash
He wore a top hat
He joined the Guns for rock n' roll, and his solos bared his soul!
And when UYI finished, those days were over.
Axl wanted something more,
Slash was heading for the door.
And then they argued on, until the break of dawn.
Izzy and Steven were already gone, now-
Axl has lost Slash too!

They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses (Guns N' Roses)
From out of L.A and Indiana (here)
They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses
Rockin' and Rollin' was growing out of fashion-
They were Guns.... they lost it all
GunsGuns N' Roses

[Guitar Solo]

His name is Axl, he was a rockstar,
But that was many years ago, when they used to play big shows.
Now he's in hiding, still making CD.
A youthful look no longer there,
With long braids now in his hair.
Everyone thinks he's dead, and now he's lost Buckethead!
He lost his youth and he lost his love,
Now he's lost his mind

They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses (Guns N' Roses)
From out of L.A and Indiana (here)
They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses
Rockin' and Rollin' has grown out of fashion-
They were Guns.... there's still a hope
GunsGuns N' Roses

They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses (Guns N' Roses)
From out of L.A and Indiana (here)
They were Guns (Guns!) Guns N' Roses
Rockin' and Rollin' never goes out of fashion-
They were Guns
