Revolver



Lyrics

My love's a revolver
My love's a revolver

Oops, I guess I shot ya
My finger's on the trigger
I had a bullet with your name on it
Click-click

I'm a sex pistol
My love should be illegal
Real deal, baby
I'm no counterfeit
Click-click

Line 'em up
Knock 'em down
If looks could kill
E-o-e-o
My body's fully loaded
And I've got more ammo

Line 'em up
Knock 'em down
If looks could kill
E-o-e-o
You're an accessory to murder, 'cause

My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?

My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?
I let it bang bang

You've been hit by a smooth criminal
A bad girl I gotcha crying to your mama
Saying I can't believe it

I've seen your type
Bring a knife into a gun fight
Caught up in the law right
I think I'm in love aye

Line 'em up
Knock 'em down
If looks could kill
E-o-e-o
My body's fully loaded
And I've got more ammo

Line 'em up
Knock 'em down
If looks could kill
E-o-e-o
You're an accessory to murder, 'cause

My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?
My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?

I let it bang bang
I shoot 'em bang bang
I shoot 'em bang bang
Mirror mirror on the wall
Who's the baddest of them all?
I shoot 'em bang bang
I shoot 'em bang bang
I line 'em up and watch them fall

(Lil Wayne:)
Bang, the shooter name is Wayne
The victim didn't complain
She just screamed shoot again
I gave her extra rounds
My barrel twist around
I am Mr. Shoot 'em down
I leave hearts on the ground
My love is a weapon
And yes I use it well
Then I let the rose petals
Cover up the bullet shell
I never shoot and tell
I only shoot to kill
And that vest ain't gonna help ya
Even if it's made of steel

My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?
My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?

My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?
My love's a revolver
My sex is a killer
Do you wanna die happy?
Do you wanna die happy?

I let it bang bang
I shoot 'em bang bang
I shoot 'em bang bang
I line 'em up and watch them fall
I shoot 'em bang bang
I shoot 'em bang bang
I line 'em up and watch them fall

Tour

Revolver @ MDNA Tour On the MDNA Tour, Madonna turned her final Warner single into a Girl Power tune. Flanked by her female squad, she strikes a series of gun poses throughout the performance. The background video by Moment Factory shows a range of black-on-black crops, liquids, body curves and exploding objects. At the end, Lil Wayne brings his part on the big screen. Though some fans would have preferred a different setlist choice such as Beautiful Killer, Revolver set the tone for the violent Transgression segment of the tour.
