The Lyrics

Saw a cannon in the field
Was just the other day
Some guy told me what I never knew
Gunpowder's 1,000 years old, it's true
First used in some cannons, then he turned his back
And walked away, ooh, look what noise can do
Hurt my ears that day

Then he showed me
Some hand cannons, so small and light
used fire to launch projectiles, too
But I have never gotten over you--
That flashy, big explosion
Would you let me stay and hear some more, ooh
Look what noise can do
Old weapons are so great

Echoes from the past
Weapons they once had
Ooh, wanna hear some more
Talkin about

Gunpowder, it's truly
Explosive, kablooey
To shake, it takes
Gunpowder, move over

It'll launch projectiles over you
I'm hoping you will duck now
Something might get blown away
Look what ammo can do, uh-hmm
With just one pull

Gunpowder, it flashes
Turns buildings to ashes
To shake it, it takes
Gunpowder, it hurls us

With just one pull

Gunpowder, it's ammo
It blows up, goes wham-o
To shake it, it takes
Gunpowder, it hurls us

You see that I have never gotten over you
That flashy, loud explosion rocked me
Before I walked away, uh-huh
I walked away
Look what ammo can do
oooooo with just one pull

Gunpowder, it's truly
Explosive, Kablooey
To shake, it takes
