COLT 44

COLT 44
Desdemona was a loner
Trouble was no-one had told her
What would be right
What would see right
What would come up and tap her on the shoulder

I see Lily kinda silly
Her icy stare was oh so chilly
Does she know it
Will she blow it
Does she see she’s got to show it

Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns, ah ah ah

Yeah Rebecca gotta connect her
Move the levers that will select her
Is she lying
Is she sighing
Is she saying you must protect her

Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns, ah ah ah

Esmerelda what was it held her
Does she think one day they’d sell her
Can she stay there
Just like lay there
Is she waiting for you to tell her

Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns, ah ah ah
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns
Ladies with long-barrelled guns, ah ah ah
