"Gavin" as written by and John Davenport Eddie Cooley....
It's not the number of times he tried to
But the one time that he did.
I once told him to beware of things to come,
But I was the one who should be scared.
All the police and handcuffs didn't bother him.
He's sure that God would understand.
Oh, the killings in the convent hall.
The cleaning bill was outrageous.
Gavin killed a nun:
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
God helps those who help themselves.
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
The paid their lunch money for his bail.
For all the times he tried to do it
Well he finally got it right.
All the kids in school just think of Gavin
As a folk hero because school's let out all day.
Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,
But now Gavin's set things right.
Sister Mary's yardstick once broke on Gavin's hand,
But now Gavin's sent Sister Mary to the promised land.
To the promised land!
Gavin killed a nun:
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
God helps those who help themselves.
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
The paid their lunch money for his bail.
Gavin killed a nun:
"She had it coming and she got what she deserved."
God helps those who help themselves.
All the kids at recess rallied for his cause.
The paid their lunch money for his bail.
Yeah!

    General CommentThis is my second favorite Pain song (the only one that beat it is The song of the seven inch Cowboy) and it's a messed up song and that's played upbeat, Pain's forte. The is song is about a troubled catholic school student (or former student) killing an abusive nun. He becomes an idol by the other students because school was closed do to the events of the song and probably killing a much loathed bitch. Gavin makes his peace with God and all of the kids used their lunch money to bail him out.

    General CommentYeah, meatshake got it right, student kills abusive nun that beats children. Pretty much Gavin ended her because he decided that she was too much of a cause of misery to be left alive. Messed up song :/
