The Lyrics

Hey, I know some others did parodies with this title already, but I had the idea long before they did. One time, I was in elementary school & I was riding the bus back from some field trip when some kids sang "I believe I can die, I've been shot by the F.B.I., all I wanted was a chicken wing, but they shot me at Burger King." I didn't know it, but at the time, I had my very first song parody idea. So, after years of sitting on it & then developing it further, here it is.
I'm waiting in line at the fast food joint.
The line is so long, but that's not the point.
Some federal agents crashed through the door.
They shot me & I ended up on the floor.

I think I'm dead, man.
Guess I should have ran.
I really do believe that it really sucked, man.

I believe I can die,
I've been shot by the F.B.I.
All I wanted was a chicken wing,
But they shot me at Burger King.
I believe that I'm dead,
They took aim & shot me in the head.
I believe I can die. (repeat this line x3)

I'm waiting at the pizza joint for some guy.
He was king of Egypt, and that's no lie.
But the delivery guy pulled out a gun.
And then he shot me, and that was no fun.

I think I'm dead, man.
Guess I should have ran.
I really do believe that it really sucked, man.

I believe I can die,
I've been shot by the pizza guy.
All I wanted was to meet King Tut,
But he shot me at Pizza Hut.
I believe that I'm dead,
He took aim & shot me in the head.
I believe I can die. (repeat this line x3)

It was for no good reason, oh.

I think I'm dead, man.
Guess I should have ran.
I really do believe that it really sucked, man.

I believe I can die,
I've been shot by the F.B.I.
All I wanted was a chicken wing,
But they shot me at Burger King.
I believe that I'm dead,
They took aim & shot me in the head.
I believe I can die. (repeat this line x3)

Hey, if I get shot somehow,
I can die.
I can die.
I can die, hey.
If I get shot somehow,
I can die.
Die-ie-ie.

Didn't do what? How can I accuse you of doing something if I don't even know what you did? Are you saying you're a pizza guy or something?

You remember this one? Strange, it seems that this song must've been done by a lot of elementary school kids.

This song was covered yesterday by a kid at a White Stripes secret show done @ a YMCA in Toronto. Not sure if he sang all the same lyrics but the FBI and chicken wings were included.

Lol, I heard my friend sing it, but differently, at parts. Only the chorus though... 'I believe I can die I got shot by the F.B.I. All I wanted was a Popsicle I ended up in the hospital...'
