The Lyrics

Trust and security's what you sell
You promise restraint but then unleash hell
Tom Clancy got a hold you see
With violence your passion, you can't break free
oh-oh It's a loaded gun
There's nowhere to run
No one can save you
The damage is done

Shot in the face
And you're to blame
You give guns a bad name
You play the part, but it's all a game
You give guns a bad name
You give guns a bad name

Child hunters learn these tips
Bright orange vests should be hard to miss
When war is real you act so shy
Never saw combat but can't say why
Oh oh It's a loaded gun
There's nowhere to run
No one can save you
The damage is done

544, good, but could have shown the progression of the entire song(I now it's a not requirement, so it's just me).

Well, actually, Dick Cheney gives a whole lot more than guns a bad name, but then, most of them, like guns themselves, already HAD a bad name. And I hate Bon Jovi. (He's from Sayreville, I'm from East Brunswick, and as the great sportscaster Keith Jackson would say, these two towns just... don't... like each other!) But this was great. A bullseye, five times over.

This was good, but the best was the one that my radio station WAAF here in Boston did with Aerosmith's 'Janie's Got A Gun'. They had thier impression guy sing 'Cheney's Got A Gun' as George Bush himself. *lol*
