I'll tell you now
And I won't tell you twice
Where when and how
I got some bad advice

I never thought I could handle
A girl with guns
And let me tell you
You can bet that I'm not the only one

Stand tall, don't think small
Don't get your back against the wall
Shoot straight, I can't wait
Aim for the heart and fire away

I've come around
I understand today
And she's the target now
I'm gonna have my way

Everybody said
Don't go messing with a girl with guns
They don't need you
They couldn't love you
They couldn't be any fun

Stand tall, don't think small
Don't get your back against the wall
Shoot straight, I can't wait
Aim for the heart and fire away

An innocent bystander
Who forgets to look both ways
Who never tries to understand her
Won't feel the heat 'til it's too late

Stand tall, don't think small
Don't get your back against the wall
Shoot straight, I can't wait
Aim for the heart and fire away

    General CommentWhat guy isn't into a girl who likes guns? It's every guy's dream to have a chick who loves guns, fast cars, and video games. The sad fact is, any girl who is into that stuff is probably not playing for the same team. It's the same for women. How many women have thought that they found Mr. Wonderful only to realize he was using her to get to her brother. YIKES!

    My OpinionMy dad got my into this song. I think it's about this guy who was in love with a girl, but she ends up being stong-minded and independent. She probably verbally attacks the guy, it seems. Lie, he has to be careful of what he's saying, and he has to stand up for himself or whatever. I'm probably completely wrong.

    General CommentTommy Shaw wrote this as an homage to strong women, which is a trait he has said he definitely admires.
