"Bucky Done Gun" as written by Bill Conti, Carol Connors, Ayn E Robbins, Wesley Pentz and Maya Arulpragasm....
London
Quiet down, I need to make a sound
New York
Quiet down, I need to make a sound
Kingston
Quiet down, I need to make a sound
Brazil
Quiet down, I need to make a sound

They're coming through the window
They're coming through the door
They're busting down the big wall
And sounding the horn
And sounding the horn

What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
What you want?
The fire done burn
What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
Get crackin'
Get, get crackin'

What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
What you want?
The fire done burn
What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
Get crackin'
Get, get crackin'

Time to spit new shit
I'm rocking on this new bit
I'm hot now; you'll see
I'll fight you just to get peace

Heavy weight wrestler
Fight me in your comforter
Let you be superior
I'm filthy with the fury ya

London
Quiet down, I need to make a sound
New York
Quiet down, I need to make a sound
Kingston
Quiet down, I need to make a sound
Brazil
Quiet, I need to make a sound

I'll hard-drive your bit
I'm battered by your sumo grip
Lucky I like feeling shit
My stamina can take it
Gymnastics super fit
Muscle in the gun clip
Bite, teeth, nose bleed
Tied up in a scarf piece

What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
What you want?
The fire done burn
What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
Get crackin'
Get, get crackin'

What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
What you want?
The fire done burn
What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
Get crackin'
Get, get crackin'

Can I get control?
Do you like me vulnerable?
I'm armed, and I'm equal
More fun for the people
Physical, brute force
Steel lion, you're the boss
Yeah, you're so do-able
Grind me down, sugar, slow

What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
What you want?
The fire done burn
What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
Get crackin'
Get, get crackin'

What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
What you want?
The fire done burn
What you want?
Bucky Done Gun
Get crackin'
Get, get crackin'

    General Commentin an interview with Ashlene Nand,[3] M.I.A. was asked "what the hell does “Bucky Done Gun” mean?". Her response was:

    I don’t know!! (Laughs) I really don’t know. At the time, the concept that I was thinking of was how far we are going to go with gangster culture in rap music. That’s really what I was thinking about. I was thinking about 50 Cent. It started off as Public Enemy and ended with 50 Cent. What was that journey (for rap music) and how did that happen? In London, Bucky is a slang word for gun. It’s a real British, grime word. So I was thinking, what is the aftermath of gangster rap? Were they going to get into therapy?


    copied it from wikipidia... lol hope it helps!!

    General CommentThe song is obviously about war. I think you guys are failing to catch what's really going on with the sex part though: RAPE.
    In the beginning, she talks about presumable soldiers invading a home...
    Then there's the comforter reference and she goes on to say "battered by your sumo grip" and "bite teeth nose bleed, tied up in a scarf piece."

    General CommentI think the lines "Heavy weight wrestler
    Fight me in your comforter
    Let you be superior
    I'm filthy with the fury ya" (on top of the sexual references) refers to the television media. the handful of conglomerates which which own the entirety of television programming (yes, the news too) are like a heavy weight wrestler against the average citizen. just an interpretation of course

    General CommentPretty sure this song is supposed to be confusing. You'll never know for sure if it's about war or sex and that is supposed to symbolize the way we accept war nowadays. It's okay to simulate it in games like it's "entertaining". Countries feel "empowered" when they go to war. People think it's a game. It's not on their home soil so it's not their problem how severe it truly is.

    And that confusion is what I see in this song. People don't even know what war is anymore, they think it's a movie, there is no point in making a genuine song about it because people are too arrogant to realize the devastation of people losing their relatives and hometowns. In my opinion she is trying to say "you think it's sexy, you think it's entertaining, I know how you'll feel once you have a gun to your head" sort of thing.

    Could just be me.
