I ditched school today
bought a gun
gotta shoot with both hands
'cause it kicks back some
I'll show those muthers who they're messin' with
run for cover, I'll take no shit
I won't be afraid of no one

by the time I'm eleven I'll be a man
gonna fire off a weapon like those guys in movies can
by the time I'm eleven
I'll be cool like them

saw that Bruce Willis movie - he's my Man
used an AK 47 like a magic wand
all those bodies falling just like bowling pins
bullets flying, gets me psyched up
can't wait to get my hands on one

by the time I'm eleven I'll be a man
gonna fire off a weapon like those guys in movies can
by the time I'm eleven
I'll be cool like them

cool like them
cool like them
so cool like them

I ditched school today
bought a gun...

    General CommentI love how her songs are often nattrative social commentary--this one, to me, is about the influence of the media on the mindset of a young boy, who, so moved by a glorified view of violence and troubled by school bullies, buys a gun.
