Another gun shot.
Sound the alarm.

Another needle, into the arm.
Another cow, in another farm, gone.

And we sing a song, and it goes.

Bloody the nose of all my foes.
The bullies oh they go.
The Police sirens they sound.
Another one down, another one down.

Ice-cream man coming around.
Pushing cream from town to town.

And it all goes. This is how it goes.
