The people in Texas say they need guns
to kill all the rattlesnakes and keep crooks on the run.
They say that guns are just fun and their harm is minimal
But I say guns in the hands of madmen are criminal.
They say burglars and drug dealers might come to kill them;
but I say when they get cut off in traffic, they might want to use them.
They carry them around town in pockets and handbags, in hatbands and jeans,
in places where children playing cowboys can find them with ease.
They think the government is coming to crush them one day
and a six gun or magnum can keep them at bay.
But c'mon now the feds won't be in mini-coopers with guns!
They've got tanks, and missiles and drones that can ground
these fools deep if they should want to put citizens down.
Like everything else in the state, old customs die hard;
but I say it's way past time for these guns to be barred.
