The Lyrics

Based on a current news story
My pop's in the pokey
For having a gun
I took it to school now
For show-and-tell fun

I aimed at a classmate
She was only five
Now she's at the doctor
And glad she's alive

Don't know what the fuss is
But dad they did blame
It was my idea
Was playing a game

I saw on the T.V.
Those shows are so cute
They taught me to wisecrack
And then aim and shoot

So now my poor daddy
Is paying a fine
That N.R.A. lawyer
Was well worth his time

Five-year-olds with guns? Better not change the channel from "Barney".

I'm all for gun ownership provided morons aren't allowed to have them. But, I must make an exception for capital murder - death to Barney! Would be a great video game anyway. It's tragic though that a 5 yeard old was shot.
