Teacher says that I've been naughty
I must learn to concentrate
But the girls they pull my hair
And with the boys I can't relate
Daddy says I'm good for nothing
Mama says that it's from him
Manic sister thinks I'm cracking
Brother says it's in my genes

Don't you want to?
Don't you want to be the one?
Don't you want to?
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang
Don't you want to?
Don't you want to hold the gun?
Don't you want to?
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang

So we put on our eyeliner
And a bit of glitter dust
Life at night is always finer
Neon streets are full of lust
Teenage kids and Soho Dolls,
They make you want to cry
Like my superstar they fall
Some will be alright

Don't you want to?
Don't you want to be the one?
Don't you want to?
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang
Don't you want to?
Don't you want to hold the gun?
Don't you want to?
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang

Sunlight falls onto his eyes
But he don't stir or turn
Messages on the answerphone
But none will be returned
Monday morning, lousy morning
What a day to see
In the evening I will hear it
On the BBC

Don't you want to?
Don't you want to be the one?
Don't you want to?
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang
Don't you want to?
Don't you want to hold the gun?
Don't you want to?
Bang bang bang bang bang bang bang

    Song MeaningI think the song is about this girl from a dysfunctional family. The first chorus is about how she wants to kill those people that have hurt her. Then she is hooking on the street (Neon streets are full of lust) and the second chorus is about how she asks those guys if they want to have sex with her. Then this guy who had sex with her ends up dead, and the third chorus implies that she and an accomplice have killed him.
