Lyrics

SHE SHOT OFF MY FINGER AND NOW I'M IN LOVE
Ac 2009 JC Tubbs
Alan hadn't seen the sunshine in many a day
Until he met Laurie then the light came shining through
So he asked her on a date to go target shootin'
She said, okay, just show me what to do

Alan fired a shot or two then gave the gun to Laurie
With the safety off, an unfortunate thing to do
'Cause almost right away, Laurie pulled a Dick Cheney
And that 45 went off and bullets they flew

Alan's pinky came flying off, Laurie started crying
As she held his bloody hand against her chest
She felt so bad and sorry, but Alan said, now Laurie
Its okay, Hon, I've still got nine more left

......and he's thinking
She shot off my finger, but that's not what I'm thinking of
Yeah, she shot off my finger, but she's so beautiful and sweet
I know now I'm in love
I'm in love

Laurie wasn't waiting, and said to Alan lets keep dating
But lets do safer things, like flying kites
The relationship did flourish and Alan gathered up his courage
To say, Laurie, will you be my wife?

Alan said, honey take my hand
No, not that one, the one with all five fingers
We'll walk down the isle feeling grand
And sing along with the singers

.......singing
She shot off my finger, but that's not what I'm thinking of
She shot off my finger, but she's so nice to me
I know now I'm in love
I'm am in love

Alan said, sometimes good comes out of bad
And this is the best bad I've ever had

She shot off my finger, but that's not I'm thinking of
She shot off my finger, but she's so nice to me
I know now I'm in love
I'm in love
