The Lyrics

MIchael Pacholek suggested I increase my "Spell" repertoire by doing a version relating to "Shotgun Dick Cheney." As misfortune would have it, I've taken him up on the suggestion.
I put a shell in you
The gauge was 9. [28 actually, according to news reports]

A better shot would mean Quayle [sic] stew,
But you're lyin,
Down, though not dyin'.

We know there's a man hit,
He's stunned on the ground.
If I'd better planned it,
I could have taken Antonin* down.

I put a shell in you,
The gauge was 9
Gauge 9.

I shot you,
I shot you,
I shot you,
I shot you, you went down.
Intensive care
Not necessary.
You're comin' 'round.

Excuse me.
I put a shell in you,
But you'll be fine.


*Antonin Scalia, the Supreme Court's Tortquemada [sic], who's been on hunting trips with Dick in the past.
