Lyrics by Harvey Dog

Put down that gun
you look like an asshole
you’re not cool
you’re not tough
Put down that gun
stop being an asshole
Put down that gun
***
Lyrics by Simon Kirke & Paul Rodgers

Company / is always on the run
destiny / is the rising sun
I was born / a six-gun in my hand
and behind that gun
I’ll make my final stand /
and that’s why they call me

I’m bad company
I cannot deny
I’m bad company
until the day I die

Rebel souls / deserters we are called
I chose a gun / and threw away the holy sun
now these towns / they all know our name
cause six-gun sound
is our claim of fame
and I can hear them say

Bad company
I won’t deny
bad company
until the day I die
until the day I die
hey…

Tell me you’re not a thief /
oh wait, I am Bad Company
and it is the way I play /
dirty for dirty
dirty for dirty
dirty for dirty
and somebody double-crossed me /
that’s the way I play

I’m bad company
I won’t deny
I’m bad, bad company
until the day I die
and I say /
I’m bad company
and you better stay away
cause that’s the way I play
I’m bad company
until the day I die
until the day I die
***
Lyrics by Harvey Dog

Put down that gun
you asshole,
It’s not the 70’s anymore
it was all a lie
anyway
so put down that gun
don’t be an asshole


Notes

  • This was inspired when a kid I know changed his profile picture to him pointing a rifle at the camera. I’m like – grow up, dude! Don’t be an asshole!
