Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

I was five and you were six
We rode on horses made of sticks
I wore black, you wore white
You would always win the fight

Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
I grew up, I called you mine
You would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play"

Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang, and I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the Church bells rang
After echoes from a gun
We both vowed that we'd be one

Bang bang
Bang bang
Bang bang

Now when you're gone I don't know why
Sometimes I cry
You didn't say, "Goodbye"
Didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang, you shot me down
Bang bang and I hit the ground
Bang bang that awful sound
Bang bang, baby my baby shot me down

Bang bang
