The Lyrics

The assassin missed. It's been known to happen. But what if it happened so often it just became another part of your life, like checking the mail?
Psych, you missed!

Shots head my way, no-one knows
Where they're from, out of nowhere
But they're just incidental, hopeless joke
I don't have nerves of steel, that ain't my deal
Forgot what instigated this whole farce
Have to spend most my days pickin' bullets out my car (whoo!)

Livin' in your reticle (ow!)
Flyin' by, painfully blatant
Livin' in your reticle
Have to laugh at my assailant
Livin' in your reticle
Despite failures, you're so patient

Botched your goal
Heh, ow!

Dodge that, ducked that
No surprise, matter of fact
Just sigh as I roll
'Cause it's thanks to you insurance is balls
Price is climbin', it's such a pain, hey
But your folly? Worth it, almost (whoo!)
Bulletproofin' all of my shite (hate it), gonna take a long time
But once it's done, my laughin' will not die

Livin' in your reticle (heh)
Flyin' by, aim is the lamest, huh
Livin' in your reticle
Man, you're crap, worst damn agent
Livin' in your reticle (ow!)
But don't think I'll get complacent

Ow! I live in your reticle
Sucks, no doubt
'Cause I live in your reticle
Wait a minute

Not sure you see all the things you've shot to crap when you were aimin' for my brain
Got a list of those for insurance claims
Like my TV (my TV), my Nintendo (my Nintendo)
Xbox, huh (Xbox), my microwave (my microwave)
Standard toaster (standard toaster), waffle toaster (waffle toaster)
My blender, whoo (my blender)! My fridge and my date

Livin' in your reticle (ow!)
Missed me
Livin' in your reticle (yeah-eah)
You should quit it now
Livin' in your reticle
Duck down, yawn now

I live in your reticle
I smile though it seems I whine, uh
'Cause I live in your reticle
Hey, either way, don't freak

Livin' in your reticle (missed me)
Watch your shots flyin' by, aimin' is vacant, uh
Livin' in your reticle (whoo!)
You try, just can't hack it (uh)
Livin' in your reticle (whoo!)
You ain't good

Wow, 16 years of doing this and only now do I do my first James Brown parody.
