Now you don't have to own a gun to be a killer
You don't even have to think it's fun to be a killer
Just give a man a solid start
You break his soul and then you break his heart
Don’t give him work and let his family starve -
you'll get a killer.

Now a little greed for a little more can make a killer
The landlord's knockin’ at your door, he'e a killer
You can't pay the rent; you've been told
You got to leave, your apartment's been sold
So it's out on the street in the freezing cold -
he's e killer.

Take a home-grown boy with a down-home smile
and make a killer
No special human is needed to make a killer
Give him a uniform and a gun or two
"You better shoot, boy, it’s him or you
Aim straight, fella, and you'll get through" –
you've made a killer.

Now you don't have to leave your home to be a killer
You don't even have to be alone to be a killer
You got your Senate, your Congress and your president
All the rest of your government
Out of your dollar give them thirty cents -
you'll own a killer.
