There's a shotgun army
Heaven's a place they just can't wait to go
Lay your guns right down on the table, have the kids all smile for the camera 

There's a shotgun army
Hair-triggered, hair-brained, well-fed, out or more

Across the voodoo nation, down the city blocks
You feel the perspiration, catch the angry looks

Onward you Christian soldiers, Allahu Akbar
No matter what the war cry, the death drums rattle on

There's a shotgun army and heaven to pay on my street
There's a shotgun army, it's heaven to pay on my street
