Well, the first shot missed him, a mile away
The last shot got him, so they say
Oh, the last shot got him
The last shot got him.

She cooked good biscuits, so they say
She cooked good biscuits, so they say
Oh, she cooked good biscuits,
She cooked good biscuits, so they say.

Well, She got good business, so they say
She got good business, so they say
Oh, she got good business
She got good business.

I wanna stay with you,
I wanna stay with you,
I wanna stay with you.
