"Sharpshooter" as written by and Brad Whitford....
Ah, can you read in all your magazines
Thinkin' that you got it near
You trust to kill you're going out tonight
Baby, all your let me see
Yeah, right, you gotta make it now
Every trick in the book
Lookin' sharp, you're feelin' heat
Like some cat on a hotel mob

(Chorus)
Sharpshooter
Thinkin' 'bout your lover, man
Sharpshooter
Leavin' every night and day

Quick as a shot
You think you're hot
You're stealy as you start the night
You're goin' downtown
Lookin' mighty clean
When you wish to take a shot
So all right, you gotta make it now
Every trick in the book
Feelin' heat, The eggshell shot
Like some can on a hotel mob
Well, all right, it's okay tonight
Yes, they can number one
is 'll right, it's okay
But wait they can try
All right, so right
It's okay

(Chorus)

Ah, can you read in all your magazines
Thinkin' that you got it near
You trust to kill you're going out tonight
Baby, all your let me see
Yeah, right, you gotta make it now
Every trick in the book
Lookin' sharp, you're feelin' heat
Like some cat on a hotel mob

Well, all right, it's okay tonight
Yes, they can number one
is 'll right, it's okay
But wait they can try
All right, so right
It's okay

(Repeat Chorus)

    General CommentWhen Brad Whitford briefly left Aerosmith in the 80s, he made an album with Derek St. Holmes. This track is on Aerosmith's Pandora's Box box-set.
