And you will not hear me cry 'cause I do not sing the blues 

Gimme back, gimme back my bullets 
Oh, put 'em back...where they belong 

Been up and down since I turned seventeen 
Well I've been on top, and then it seems I lost my dream 
But I got it back, I'm feelin' better everyday 
Tell all those pencil pushers, better get out of my way 

Gimme back, gimme back my bullets 
Oh put 'em back where they belong 
Gimme back my bullets
