Bang bang
I was five, and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black, and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang
He shot me down
Bang bang
I hit the ground
Bang bang
That awful sound
Bang bang
My baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
'Remember when we used to play'

Bang bang
I shot you down
Bang bang
You hit the ground
Bang bang
That awful sound
Bang bang
I used to shoot you down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Now he's gone, I don't know why
And 'til this day, I sometimes cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang
He shot me down
Bang bang
I hit the ground
Bang bang
That awful sound
Bang bang
My baby shot me down

Oh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
My baby shot me down
Ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh-ooh
My baby shot me down
Shot me down
Shot me down, down, down, down, down
