"Bullet" as written by and Mason Stewart Jennings....
This is a bullet from a gun called "what the fuck?"
If I was standing in your shoes I'd throw my hands straight up
And start explaining at the speed of light, not sound
How the words get some coffee came to mean get down
And all the kings horses and all the kings yen
Couldn't stop the abracadabra that invites these men
And all the alleyways in Amsterdam could not compete
Against the wall street speed with which you leave your feet
Oh yes, this song is a joke

Funny like our house going up in smoke
Funny like the bomb between my teeth when we kiss
You pulled out the pin with your own sweet lips
Everytime the phone rings you get there first
And when the pizza man comes you always run for your purse
Now I'm the son of a banker, I know just what the deal is
If you wrote it out in braille, I wouldn't even have to feel it
Oh yes, this song is a joke

Funny like our house going up in smoke
Funny like the bomb between my teeth when we kiss
You pulled out the pin with your own sweet lips
Funny how goodbye can sound so sad sometimes
Today it sounds happy like a nursery rhyme
And you're not Cinderella, so don't forget your shoes
I've never been as lonely as when I was with you
Oh yes, this song is a scream

Funny like our loving doused in gasoline
Funny like the bomb between my teeth when we kiss
You pulled out the pin with your own sweet lips
This is fireman McNeil from the Hennepin line
We got the call around ten, we couldn't get there in time
There was a driveway leading to a hole in the ground
I got the heebies bone deep and turned the truck straight around
Oh yes, this song is a joke

Funny like my fingers in your bicycle spokes
Funny like the bomb between my teeth when we kiss
You pulled out the pin with your own sweet lips

    General CommentI'd been singing this song to myself for days when I realized why it was so catchy. Its rhythm isn't metrical (like iambic pentameter); it's stress rhythm, so that words are stressed no matter how many or few syllables there were between the last stress, if that makes sense.
    That's why it "sounds happy like a nursery rhyme." :)

    General Commenthey I think instead of "all the king's horses and all the kings men" its "all the kings horses and all the king's yen" thats what it sounds like, plus why would he use the word men twice that close to each other

    General Commentyea i think it is all the king's yen, the first paragraph is obviously about a really easy girl he goes out to get coffee with and ends up having sex with her. The rest os about how easy she is and he should be having a good time with her but hes just lonely. and...

    "There was a driveway leading to a hole in the ground"

    i dunno about you but that sounds like a sexual innuendo.. but i am probably just readind to far into it

    General CommentIt is yen, the lyrics used to be on MasonJennings.com.

    I had my ipod playing through the radio at work (in a retail store) one day and this song came on, "This is a bullet from a gun called "what the fuck"", I was like "oh crap!". Luckily no one noticed.

    General CommentI think the driveway part just means that their "home" is empty because there is no love there... That's not where his heart is.
