"We Need Our Guns"

Parody Written by:


The Lyrics

See all the blood, smoke in the air
Wounded and killed on the ground
So many are there
But we need guns

Guns aren't to blame
Guns do not kill
Guns are inanimate things,
It's people who will..
So let's get more guns
We need our guns..

Guns don't cause mass killing to spread
Holding an AR 15 is what's needed - more lead
Shooters who rampage again -
Have their own "Right to Bear"
It's his, yours, and mine..
Ammendment is there..

Gun bans are a farce - gun faults, won't hear
Unlimited arms we all want - sorry, my dear
But we need our guns - we need all our guns
Maybe next year

Gun control pitch - isn't it queer
Why do, assault guns, they hate - freedom we cheer
We must keep our guns - give us more guns
Don't bother us here..

We need our guns

Clever match, Airfarce. I won't be surprised if you get caught in a little crossfire here, like last time.

Thanks, LL...I don't mind a little friendly fire, now and then, it helps motivate parody ideas.

Nicely written, and a bit ambiguous as to intent, though I think I can tell. That is a mark of good satire, especially when the subject doesn't recognize that he has been mocked. Reminds me of a very hard to find song "Prepared for Killing" by Kathy Gregory. Basically a woman singing about her gun collection. The rest of her material is all new age stuff about flowers and happy thoughts, so I don't think she was soliciting dates from NRA members. But it's a beautiful "piece" and I wish there was some way I could direct others where to find it. Send in the Clowns was my first parody here. Yours is short, simple, and very effectively worded. The irony is, that the only way to collect all the weapons out there, and I think there are many more than official estimates state, would be to send men with assault rifles from door to door, setting off more violent encounters. Violence in America is not a hardware problem, it is a spiritual one, and I see no examples of moral leadership anywhere to begin finding a real solution.

Thanks, Patrick...the song you mention, I find on the web--this title listed as being in an album by her, entitled, "Myself"....but, could find no Youtube video, or lyrics for that song

I have a 45 rpm and an LP, but no way to put such a thing on youtube. If ever I figure out how, I'll try to get that done. It is an amazing song, and even in the context of her other material, impossible to pin her down on just what she is trying to say. Does anyone else out here have a copy of "Prepared for Killing" or the "Myself" LP?
