Trigger Finger

Come on in and lay down your money.

It's the only game in town, sonny,

and one good number's all you need to play --

say, a number 44 or a number 38.

And how does the man with his finger on the trigger feel?

A spinning world and he's at the center of the wheel.

What kind of fool wants to argue with a loaded gun?

Get enough fools here and maybe you can find you one.

A liquor store on Avenue J,

a man walks in and he asks for some change.

Then he says he'll just help himself.

He leaves the clerk lying right where he fell.

And how does the man with his finger on the trigger feel...

Four hostages, one little room,

windows all blocked to make a good tomb.

"We want them to take us seriously."

Four hostages and then there were three.

And how does the man with his finger on the trigger feel...

So do we end this troubled story

in one white hot blaze of glory?

We've got a gun all loaded for sure

to fire a shot heard 'round the world.

And how does the man with his finger on the trigger feel...
