Song Description

Bang is an urban, tongue in cheek number that conveys a darker lyrical theme which is masked by a jaunty, "Kinks-like" musical style that is fun for the whole family. Bring the kids.

Lyrics

Bang
(© ASCAP Allison, Ramsay)

A moment ago I was rapping
Trying to think of something to say
Now I'm on the floor and I'm gasping
A victim of the gains that I made

I'm just a man

By the Chula Vista on Rosemont
Ganstas celebrate my demise
They got the plastic Christ on their dashboards
But nothing but murder in mind

I'm just a man who kicks too much
to leave this life
With trembling hands I grab it

Bang bang it's the hood calling
on its hands and knees
Bang bang Hollywood calling
Come and play with me
Come and play with me

Suddenly my face in the headlines
Getting hit has made me a name
That what don't kill makes us stronger
And stronger is the power of fame

I'm just a man who thinks too much
to kick this life
With trembling hands I grab it

Bang bang it's the hood calling
on its hands and knees
Bang bang Hollywood calling
Come and play with me
Come and play with me

You can run, you can hide
from the homey inside
Reinvent yourself new for the MTV crew
When you brandish PR
like a blade to be seen
You can wash it all off
but still never get clean

No you'll never get clean
With a gun in your hand
