[[Gorillaz' Kids With Guns plays throughout]]
[Lupe]
"(Imitates gunfire) How you gonna get up man? I shot you, you dead. You can't get up when you dead. You gotta lay down. Man, you ain't-you ain't you ain't playin right, when-when you dead you 'sposed to lay down. I can't even play with you no more, When you dead, you 'posed to lay down man. Whatever."

Li'l Terry got a gun he got from a store,
he bought it with the money he got from his chores,
He robbed the candy shop, told her lay down on the floor,
Put the cookies in the bag, take the pennies out the drawer

Li'l Kahlil got a gun he got from the rebels,
to kill the infidels and American devils,
a bomb on his waist,
a mask on his face,
prays five times a day, and listens to heavy metal,

Li'l Alex got a gun he took from his dad,
That he snuck into school in his black bookbag,
His black nail polish, black boots and black hat,
He gon' blow away the bully that just pushed his ass,

Li'l joker got a gun he bought on the street,
to go and kill the niggas that beat him up last week,
'Cause he don't let go of none of his past beefs,
Bullets flying out the windows, shells landin on the seats,

Li'l Sara got a gun from her Uncle Sam,
She got armor piercing rounds, and her gun don't jam,
She got laser-guided rockets,
She killin' to go to college,
She thought it was an insurgent, it was some old man,

Now, you can get guns on the internet (internet)
AKs, Glock 9s, inter-teks, (Inter-Tek)
So if you see a shorty, don't disrespect, (disrespect)
Watch "Better Tomorrow," play "Grand Theft Auto." hear a bang!

    General CommentI personally like how the song goes more into the one it's sampling (Kids With Guns.)
    Each verse is about a kid (of varying ages,) how they got the guns, and what they do with them

    Terry- Younger kid robs the candy store. That, or the whole verse is a metaphor for say, a conveince store or bank robbery "Put the cookies in the bag, take the pennies out the drawer"- Cookies = stuff in safe deposit boxes, pennies = the oney in the bank.

    Khalil- Child living in the Middle East, possibly a child soldier, Or

    Alex- High school student, takes a gun from home to begin a Columbine-like shooting.

    Joker- Kid living in the projects, plans to kill some guys that beat him up before

    Sara- Soldier in Iraq, kills a supposed insurgent, actually just an old man.
    Uncle Sam- The US,
    Killing to go to college- the Army will pay your tuition,
