The Lyrics

From The Wizard of Oz, of course. On Friday, April 10, 2009, ABC News' 20/20 will air a special called "If I Only Had a Gun". Need I say more?
I would chase away the baddie,
Protect the lass and laddie,
Put perverts on the run!
I could round up the robbers,
Have a showdown with the mobsters
If I only had a gun!

There would be no punk who’d slug me
Harass me or to mug me
For profit or for fun.
With my rod in my pocket
I could tell the world to “sock” it
If I only had a gun!

Oh I…could shoot a guy
Who looked at me askance!
I could make him strip down to his underpants,
Then I would aim [Bang! Bang!] and make him dance!

I could be a local hero,
Not just an urban zero,
Virility undone.
I could win back my manhood,
Be the king of ladies’ fanhood
If I only had a gun!
