"Shot Down In Flames" as written by and Ronald Belford Scott Angus Mckinnon Young....
(Yow! One, two)
Out on the town, looking for a woman
Gonna give me good love
Anybody want to hand off me
And give me plenty of
She was standing alone over by the jukebox
Like she's something to sell
I said, baby what's the going price?
She told me to go to hell

Shot down in flames
Shot down in flames
Ain't it a shame
To be shot down in flames

Singles bar, got my eye on a honey
Hanging out everywhere
She might be straight
She might want my money
I really don't care, no

Said, baby, you're driving me crazy
Laid it out on the line
When a guy with a chip on his shoulder said
Toss off buddy she's mine

Shot down in flames
Shot down in flames
Ain't it a shame, yea yeah
To be shot down in flames

Hey you Angus, shoot me, shoot
That's nice, woo! Uh! Oh! Oh! Wooooh!

Shot down in flames
Shot down in flames
Ain't it a shame
To be shot down in flames


Shot down in flames
Shot down in flames
Ain't it a shame
To be shot down in flames

I don't want the pain
Don't want to be shot down in flames

    General Commentyea i can definately relate to this

    a fat bottomed rocker chick had her hair all cute like.

    then she cut it hecka short intensionally so i wouldnt like her

    so eventually i found out by stalking her:
    she was a dyke :'C

    General CommentThe first verse is about going out to a club and seeing a girl all dressed up like a cheap whore and when you go over to ask her price, you find out she's not a prostitute and then you feel like a jackass. The second verse is about going up to some hot chick in a bar and having her boyfriend come over just as you make your move. It's happened so many times to so many people that everyone can relate to this song.

    Song MeaningThis song means you've been rejected so bad, you feel like you've been shot down. You think you're gonna get a girl, but it turns out she doesn't like you back or another guy got her. But hey, don't worry,
    It ain't a shame
    To be shot down in flames
