You wanna gun song - you gotta gun song!

Recently, there was a thread here about gun songs. Here are fragments from some afghani vet songs, translated by me from Russian:

Ever since I remember myself,
I like singing and like to shoot.
I like shooting birds when they sit, I like shooting 'em when they fly
And I like the gunpowder smell".
(D. Poltorazki, "My Shotgun")

"Please tell me who I should pray to -
Oh, I know exactly who'll help -
My God hangs on a leather sling,
Kalashnikov - my one and only god"
(D. Poltorazki, "Kalashnikov")

"I'm so cold, and also fully wet -
My cold sweat sizzles on the machinegun.
We're leaning left, I'm leaning on the sight,
The howling wind takes off the will for shooting,
The world turns over - and in the same sec,
I squeeze the trigger on my dear machinegun.
We have an FAB-500 on the wing,
If we drop that - goodbye, you evil bastards!"
(Yuri Kirsanow, "The Doorgunner")

I guess it loses something in the translation. I think I'll stick with Warren Zevon's "Roland the Headless Thompson Gunner" and
"Lawyers, Guns and Money".:uhoh: Not that I don't appreciate the effort and the MESSAGE, I just get a little creeped out when the lyrics don't rhyme!:cuss:

P.S. Please, don't translate any Iraqi songs:barf:

A comrade on me left/and another one on me right
And a clip of ammunition for me little Armalite!

I've always wanted to hear a rock band do a cover of 'Me Little Armalite'

If I send for my baby, and she don't come
If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

And if she gets unruly, thinks she don't wan' do
And if she gets unruly and thinks she don't wan' do
Take my 32-20, now, and cut her half in two

She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light
She got a .38 special but I believe it's most too light
I got a 32-20, got to make the caps alright

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Hot Springs sure can't help her none

I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gonna shoot my gatling
I'm gonna shoot my pistol, gotta shoot my gatling gun
You made me love you, now your man have come

Aha, baby, where you stayed last night
Aha, baby, where you stayed last night
You got your hair all tangled and you ain't talking right

Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
Her .38 special, boys, it do very well
I got a 32-20 now, and it's a burning

If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
If I send for my baby, man, and she don't come
All the doctors in Wisconsin sure can't help her none

Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
Hey, hey, baby, where you stayed last night
You didn't come home until the sun was shining bright

A-ho boy, I just can't take my rest
A-ho boy, I just can't take my rest
With this 32-20 laying up and down my breast

Robert Johnson, .32/20 Blues

Six days on layaway and I'm gonna get my H&K!!!

I also had some country song half written up about a girl leaving and taking the HK91 somewhere but I think I lost it when my hard drive died.

Ain't Found A Way To
Kill Me Yet
