The Lyrics

Bob Marley had this song first in 1973 with the Wailers, but Eric Clapton made it world famous in 1974!
I shot in Paris
I was fighting German infantry, oh no! No!
I shot in Paris
(Setting the Resistance free, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh)
Yeah! The SS guard was down
They were tryin' to track me down;
They said they wanted to hang me
For my hasty shooting spree
As the occupiers leave
How long they stayed!

Pow! Pow! Pow! Oh!
(I shot in Paris) - in Paris
(For the Resistance)
Oh, no! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!
I say: I shot n Paris- Mon Dieu!
(German soldiers had no rest)
Yeah! (Ooh, ooh, oo-oh) Yeah!

I was recruited in '43
For what, I didn't know:
A rifle they gave to me
One said "kill them when you go"
Shoot them, stab them, cut their throats
And so:

Read it in the papers
(Gunshots in Paris) Mon Dieu!
(Hunted down by the SS)
They were hunting me (Oo-oo-oh)
I say: I shot in Paris
One fell, then two, then three (Oo-oh) Yeah!

Freedom came our way one day
Germans leaving, ceding ground
The Americans were coming, celebration all around
I wanted to hunt the remnants down
But I shot - I shot - I shot into the air
Kissed many ladies on that day, drank champagne!

I shot in Paris
I was fighting German infantry, oh no! No!
I shot in Paris
(Setting the Resistance free, ooh, ooh, oo-ooh)
Now it's all history!

I thought it was going to be all those shoot outs that occurred in Paris due to terrorist attacks.

I've had an "I Shot The Sheriff" parody buzzing around in my head for a long time. Maybe this is the spur I need to get it out
