Soft Power the Musical - Good Guy with A Gun Lyrics


ENSEMBLE:
Whoo!

VEEP: (spoken)
As your Vice President,
I am honored to convey a message from Dear Leader,
Who is busy doing other important things
He has ordered us to drop our bombs on cheatin' China

VEEP: (spoken)
Matters of state used to feel complicated, nuanced, frustrating
But no longer

(sung)
America used to struggle
Too much give, too little take
Goldarn-gee of politics give us a bellyache
But now we have Dear Leader
With highfalutin skills
And here's our new solution for a litany of ills:

Good guy with a gun
Good guy with a gun
Nothing says "I love you" like
A good guy with a gun

ENSEMBLE:
Oooooh, oooooh

VEEP:
It's time to get real tough with folks so's we's can liberate 'em
Drop our bombs to help 'em, and not because we hate 'em
We're kind to all out friends and stray dogs that come along
That's how we know our hearts are right and we can do no wrong

Goog guy with a gun

ENSEMBLE:
Oooh

ALL:
Good guy with a gun
Life can be so simple for
A good guy

VEEP:
With a gun
You'll never lose face when your finger's on the trigger
The world's a scary place, so get a gun that's bigger!

ENSEMBLE:
Smile more, smile more
I must confess under all of this ooh-ing
I'm faking, heart breaking
Dancing

HILLARY:
And unglueing
But I'll smile harder
Through this massive repression
Til my war can be more than

ENSEMBLE:
Just smile
Just smile
Smile, smile

ENSEMBLE & HILLARY:
Just my own passive aggression

VEEP:
"I love you's" just a nice try
If you end up a dead guy
Those words mean more when said by
A good guy with a gun
Dangerous work in every corner all across our land

ALL:
We're rugged individuals

VEEP:
Don't give me your hand
A real man knows he stands alone
He depends on no one
That's why no American—

(spoken)
No American would throw away his gun
Come on!

ALL:
Good guy with a gun
Good guy with a gun
That's why no American
Would throw away his—

VEEP:
Sing!

ALL:
La la la la la
La la la la la la

VEEP:
That's why no American

ALL:
Would throw away his gun!

VEEP:
BANG!
