Two Guns

lyrics

Verse 1:
Just collected my reward for the bounty, counting...
Enough here to get the engine done,
but then I laid eyes on the one.
An introduction...
She's from planet 5, moon 1.
1st thing that comes to mind...
close encounter of the 7th kind.
...already 5 drinks in...
in the middle of a warp drive discussion.
We love the same shield generator.
Another call to the waiter.
I woke up; ran to the docking bay
and felt the pain as she turned away.

Chorus:
I had two guns,
but then she fired on me.
I reached, but she had beat me.

I had two guns,
but now I'm stuck in the bay.
My transport's moving away.

Verse 2:
Woke up...in medical,
but I remembered all.
The weapons...and the cash,
I lost it all.
This nurse...
is giving me that look
...and with a smirk, she read me like an open book.
She said...
everybody on the station knows.
Never drink with Thorellian hoes.

Chorus:
I had two guns,
but then she fired on me.
I reached, but she had beat me.

I had two guns,
but now I'm stuck in the bay.
My transport's moving away.

Verse 3:
(Then she said...)
I have...a brand new runner.
I had...two launchers installed
and a new lead gunner.
But, I don't give rides for free...
I realized the new lead gunner was me.
Oooh Wee...she's looking very good in that dress
and I bet she can help get me out of this mess.
Aye, Aye captain...I'm reporting for duty.
Off we go to collect my booty.

Chorus x2:
I had two guns,
but then she fired on me.
I reached, but she had beat me.

I had two guns,
but now I'm stuck in the bay.
My transport's moving away.
