Neneh Cherry – Shot Gun Shack Lyrics

Shot Gun Shack by Neneh Cherry
Released : 2018

Just fun and games
took my name in vain
Nothing is the same
Just another day now
fun and playgrounds
bend the rules now
know the rules now
play the rules now
it’s institutional resolutions
lack of direction intersections

Pick up a gun you know you gonna use it
Know that gun its gonna get loaded
say my name before you pull it
Too late you know just took that bullet

Looking front to back
through the shot gun shack
You reside too slow to run fast run fast
Catching up with you too slow to move
it’s gonna get you
the playground rules

You can’t cry now
Don’t even try
nowhere you can turn
you can’t even run away
2 can cry now
don’t even try to ride
you can hide now
you can even turn away

the shot gun living in a shot gun shack
in the back living in a shot gun shack
in the back living with a shotgun
living in a shot gun shack living in a shot gun
shack living in the back living with a shot gun
living with a gun living with your back to the wall

Pick up a gun you know you gonna use it
Know that gun its gonna get loaded
say my name before you pull it
Too late you know just took that bullet

You can’t cry now
Don’t even try
nowhere you can turn
you can’t even run away
2 can cry now
don’t even try to ride
you can hide now
you can even turn away
You can’t cry now
Don’t even try
nowhere you can turn
you can’t even run away
2 can cry now
don’t even try to ride
you can hide now
you can even turn away
