Begin with step one
Let's assemble your new gun
count the pieces til there's none
we'll use them all before we're done

Make sure the bolt is clean
attach it to the firing pin
lube the bore and check the springs
Is the hammer functioning
for your proper assembly?

Take care the chambers free
to avoid an injury
thread the breach plug
clear debris
it's as easy as 1-2-3

With the safety locked
affix the trigger to the stock
undo the ramrod, pull it off
and keep a close eye on the clock
don't let this thing go off half cocked

We all get hurt
and we all get up
and we all move on
yeah we all move on

    General CommentI totally love how they sing about how to assemble a gun - accurately, as far as I know - and then go on to sing about how great life is and how we all move on from our problems.
