Couplet 1:
I shot my lover in head
Didn't kill him but he's almost dead
Now he's bleeding on the bedroom floor
Got the neighbor's knockin' at the door
They said "Did you hear a gun fire?"
Said "No," but they know I'm a liar
They said they're callin' 911
I said "Gotta hide my gun".

Chorus:
Why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? Oh, why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? (x2)
If I turn myself in could I claim it was in self-defense? I don't think so
He had it coming with all of his running around

Couplet 2:
I shot my lover in the head
Found him with another woman in bed
You should've seen the look on his face
I took the gun from the hiding place
I let her go - she was a disaster
After all, it was him I was after
He fell on his hands and knees
Begged I'm sorry, pretty, pretty please

Why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? Oh, why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? (x2)
If I turn myself in could I claim it was in self-defense? I don't think so
He had it coming with all of his running around (x2)

Should I flee the country and be a refugee
In Turkey, or Mexico?
He had it coming with all of his running around


I shot my lover in head
Didn't kill him but he's almost dead
Now he's bleeding on the bedroom floor
Got the neighbor's knockin' at the door
They said "Did you hear a gun fire?"
Said "No," but they know I'm a liar
They said they're callin' 911
I said "Gotta hide my gun".

Why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? Oh, why did I do it? Why'd I go and do it? (x2)
If I turn myself in could I claim it was in self-defense? I don't think so
He had it coming with all of his running around (x4)

'Cause he had it coming with all of his running around.
