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

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

    General Comment:I don't know sorry, but I do know I love Cher's version anyway, I didnt like it the first few times I heard it but it has grown on me, I think most of us can kinda relate to it a bit being shot down.....

    General Comment:Two people grew up together, and eventually started going out. However, the girl was shot down by her boyfriend. Regardless of their pas together and the many memories tha they had, he broke her heart like he used to pretend t d when they were younger.

    General Comment:FYI Cher actually did two versions of this song. One she did back in the late 60s/early 70s, and then she did an updated version in the 80s. Personally I prefer the 80s version; it sounds so much darker and fits the lyrics quite well.
