"All for You, Sophia" as written by Nicholas John Mccarthy, Alexander Paul Kapranos Huntley, Robert Hardy and Paul Robert Thompson....
Bang, bang, Gavrilo Princip
Bang, bang, shoot me, Gavrilo
Bang, bang, the first six are for you
Bang, bang, the seventh is for me
Bang, bang, Gavrilo Princip
Bang, bang, Europe's going to weep

All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia
All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia
All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia
All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia

Bang, bang, history's complete
Bang, bang, shoot me, Gavrilo
Bang, bang, the first six are for you
Bang, bang, the seventh is for me
Bang, bang, Gavrilo Princip
Bang, bang, shoot me, Gavrilo

All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia
All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia
All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia
All for you, all for you, all for you, Sophia

The black hand holds the gun
The devil takes his run
Urban, take the Apple Quay
It's June, the twenty-eighth
The seventh was for me

Bang, bang, Gavrilo Princip
Bang, bang, shoot me, Gavrilo
Bang, bang, the first six are for you
Bang, bang, the seventh is for me
Bang, bang, Gavrilo Princip
Bang, bang, shoot me, Gavrilo

    General CommentThe lines "Bang bang, the first six are for you
    Bang bang, the seventh is for me " isn't about the gun shots. I looked up eyewitness testamony of Franz Ferdinand's death and only two shots were fired. The first bullet hit Sophia and the second hit the Franz. I think the lines are refering to the fact that shortly after being shot he said "Its nothings" seven times, six times for his wife's comfort and one for his own. It is also recorded that he said "Sophia, Sophia, do not die. Live for our children." Sophia was with child when she was killed. It's such a sad yet weirdly romantic story. Great song.
