Two feet they come a creepin'
Like a black cat do
And two bodies are layin' naked A creeper think he got nothin' to lose
So he creeps into this house, yeah
And unlocks the door
And as a man's reaching for his trousers Shoots him full of thirty-eight holes 
Mr. Saturday night special Got a barrel that's blue and cold
Ain't good for nothin'
But put a man six feet in a hole

Big Jim's been drinkin' whiskey And playin' poker on a losin' night And pretty soon ol' Jim starts a thinkin' Somebody been cheatin' and lyin'
So Big Jim commence to fightin'
I wouldn't tell you no lie
Big Jim done pulled his pistol Shot his friend right between the eyes

Mr. Saturday night special Got a barrel that's blue and cold
Ain't good for nothin'
But put a man six feet in a hole

Oh, it's the Saturday night special, for twenty dollars you can buy yourself one too

Hand guns are made for killin'
They ain't no good for nothin' else
And if you like to drink your whiskey You might even shoot yourself
So why don't we dump 'em people To the bottom of the sea Before some ol' fool come around here Wanna shoot either you or me

Mr. Saturday night special You got a barrel that's blue and cold
You ain't good for nothin'
But put a man six feet in a hole

Mr. the Saturday night special And I'd like to tell you what you could do with it
And that's the end of the song
