(We could get somebody else,
But we want someone like you.
We could get somebody else,
But we want someone like you.
We could get somebody else,
But we want someone like you.
We could get somebody else,
But we want someone like you.
We could get somebody else,
But we want someone like you.
We could get somebody else,
But we want someone like you.)

Well, as soon as I get my gun
I'll point it out the window at the setting sun
As soon as I get my gun
I'll tell you all about it when you fall in love
As soon as I get my gun
I'm gonna make a call
Well, as soon as I get my gun
Get my gun

Well the uniform isn't sewn
They make 'em like we give 'em out to anyone
As soon as we get your gun
A heckle for a pistol is a lot of fun
It's just the kind of place we run
Because the government
Because the government wants your gun
Wants your gun, whoa

Well, if I'm old enough to die for your mistakes
Then let's go
Can I bleed enough to fill up what the engine takes?
I don't know
But if you're watching up above
They're teaching me to kill
Who's teaching me to love?
Now baby
Isn't it crazy?

Well as soon as I get my gun
(As soon as I get my gun)
They'll put me on vacation underneath the sun
As soon as I get my gun
I'll holler and flash it at my belting blood
Out on the sand
Like a hole from an I-E-D
'Cause I'm holding up my gun
Holding up my gun, yeah

And if I'm old enough to die for your mistakes
Then let's go
Can I bleed enough to fill up what the engine takes?
I don't know
And if you're watching up above
They're teaching me to kill
Who's teaching me to love?
Now baby
Isn't it crazy?

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun!)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun!)

As soon as I get my G-U-N
(Don't even have a gun!)

I'm standing out in the S-U-N
(Don't even have a gun!)

I'm never gonna have a son
(Don't even have a gun!)

She's never gonna have a son
(Don't even have a gun!)

I'm never gonna have a S-O-N
And now I'm never gonna have a S-O-N

And if I'm old enough to die for your mistakes
Then let's go
Can I bleed enough to fill up what the engine takes?
I don't know
And if you're watching, up above
They're teaching me to kill
Who's teaching me to love?
Now baby
Isn't it crazy?

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

As soon as I get my gun
(Don't even have a gun)

Well, as soon as I
As soon as I get my gun.

    My InterpretationThis song sounds like an attack on the war in Iraq.

    "Well, if I’m old enough to die for your mistakes" (refers to the minimum age required for military service)

    "Can we bleed enough to fill up what the engine takes?" (refers to how the Iraq war is driven by the greed for oil)

    "Well as soon as I've got my gun (refers to the end of military training/deployment)
    Put me on vacation underneath the sun" ( refers to the scorching heat of Iraq)

    "We’re like a hold from a IED" (Improvised Explosive Devices are the weapon of choice for insurgents)

    My InterpretationI think this song is satire, from the perspective of a teenager who's been brought up on sketchy morals.

    'A pistol is a lot of fun
    It’s just the kind of place we run
    Because the government
    Because the government wants your gun
    Wants your gun
    Whoa'

    Speaks about the Government taking away gun rights in the US.

    'Well, if I’m old enough to die for your mistakes
    Let’s go'

    I think this is an important line, it's saying 'Your mistakes in raising me made me obsessed to guns and murder, and it's going to kill me.'

    'They’re teaching me to kill
    Who’s teaching me to love?'

    Another important line, saying 'I'm being taught how to kill, but nobody teaching me how to love.'

    It makes sense if you listen it over a few times.
