shotgun boogie lyrics – shakin’ stevens

standin’ in here on the corner
with the barrel so straight.
i looked over the fence and over the gate.
picked a fat rabbit, he was sittin’ in the gr*ss.
wait’ll he hears my whole shotgun blast.

shotgun boogie, oh shotgun boogie,
oh. shotgun boogie makes me boogie woogie all the time.

well, i met a pretty girl, she was tall and thin.
asked her what she had, she said a vox 410,
i looked her up and down and said boy this is love.
we headed for the bush to shout a big fat dove,

shotgun boogie, oh shotgun boogie,
look out mister rabbit because they’re gunnin’ you,
oh, look out…

sat down on a log and took her in my lap
she said now wait a minute honey, you got to see my pap.
he’s got a sixteen guage tall gun like a rifle,
he don’t like men that’s gonna trifle,
shotgun boogie makes me boogie woogie all the time.

well, i called on her pappy like a gentleman oughta,
he said no brush hunters gonna get my daughter,
he c*cked that gun right on the spot,
but when the gun went off i outran that shot,

oh. shotgun boogie, oh shotgun boogie,
i wanted wedding bells and not your pappy’s sh*lls,
oh, shotgun boogie makes me boogie woogie all the time,

oh, he was shooting low honey,
0h, he got me on that second shot, ooh, i got it but i’ll be back,
i only wanna talk…
