"Annie Oakley" as written by and Charlie Brand....
It's a very tiny risk that I'm willing to take
It's my foot, it's my heart, it's my back
That I'm willing to break

It's the dog in me who's barking at you
What am I doing here, everybody wants you
Hands down, pilgrim
Your death is coming soon

I don't wanna move too fast
I don't wanna scare you off
I don't wanna move too slow
Someone's gonna snatch you off
I don't wanna move too slow
I don't wanna move too slow
And end up all alone

I'm like a housecat, waiting to be clawed
It's a shotgun wedding
I hate my in-laws
It's a drag dragging them around town
It's dragging me down

If I don't act soon somebody's gonna get you
I wouldn't mind, I could never tie you down

I don't wanna move too fast
I don't wanna scare you off
I don't wanna move too slow
Someone's gonna snatch you off
I don't wanna move too slow
I don't wanna move too slow
And end up all alone

I lost the plot,
What was this all about?
Attack piano
The words are spilling out of my gun
Black blood from your new high heels
Stomping out someone who never should be lying at your feet

I don't wanna move too fast
I don't wanna scare you off
I don't wanna move too slow
Someone's gonna snatch you off
I don't wanna move too slow
I don't wanna move too slow
And end up all alone

    General Commenti believe these are the correct lyrics:

    it's a very tiny risk that I'm willing to take
    it's my foot, it's my heart, it's my back
    that I'm willing to break

    it's the dog in me who's barking at you
    what am I doing here, everybody wants you
    hands down, pilgrim
    your death is coming soon

    I don't wanna move too fast
    I don't wanna scare you off
    I don't wanna move too slow
    someone's gonna snatch you up
    I don't wanna move too slow
    and end up all alone

    I'm like a housecat, waiting to be declawed
    it's a shotgun wedding
    I hate my in-laws
    it's a drag dragging them around town
    it's dragging me down

    if I don't act soon somebody's gonna get you
    I wouldn't mind, I could never tie you down

    I don't wanna move too fast
    I don't wanna scare you off
    I don't wanna move too slow
    someone's gonna snatch you up
    I don't wanna move too slow
    and end up all alone

    I lost the plot,
    what was this all about?
    attack piano
    the words are spilling out of my gun
    black blood from your new high heels
    stomping out someone who never should be lying at your feet

    I don't wanna move too fast
    I don't wanna scare you off
    I don't wanna move too slow
    someone's gonna snatch you up
    I don't wanna move too slow
    and end up all alone
