I Shot You Babe...

I'm on a tight deadline, so this will be brief.

I was somewhere, mentioning the new title of the book, and someone (I forget a lot...Hashimoto's!) suggested coming up with a Bombay song based on the title.

So here it is guys, your moment of zen. I'll start the damned thing, but you have to contribute a verse. Let's see what we come up with!

I Shot You Babe (sung to the tune of I Got You Babe by Sonny & Cher)

Bombays are killers, you know that's true,
The key is to shoot before I get shot by you...

Babe... I shot you babe... I shot you babe...

Alright guys, hit me with your best shot...Fire away!

The Assassin

First I have to say that every time I see this title or even think about it, it makes me giggle. I loved the titles of these books before this one, but now you've outdone yourself.

So, here's my contribution to the song:

Don't let them say your gun's all wrong
'Cause when you shoot, the bad guy lives not long
Some might say you live in crime
But you've no victim that's not total slime

DAKOTA: Killing’s not easy, you guys just don’t know,
How to improvise when Mickey’s head is blown
GINNY: What sort of idiot would ride the Disney train?
What happened to the days of a little strychnine in the veins?

BOTH: I shot you babe
I shot you babe

MISSY: What kind of mother sends her daughter to a crap tv show
That before it’s taped, they’re already out of dough?
CONEY: I’m just here to talk about showers and loofahs,
Hellion’s counting the days till she can see me in the raw

BOTH: I shot you babe
I shot you babe

These are great guys.

You really should find a way to use them, Leslie.

Maybe I could do a book trailer or You Tube video with it or something? Think I could talk Daniel Craig into signing???

If you do, I'm so there!!!!

I've been wracking my brain all day for cool lyrics, but after reading these, I give up. These are so good!

It took some doing, but here's the whole song.. It was harder than I thought to come up with things that would work. Can't wait to read the new book!

"I Shot You Babe"

[HER:] We start young and we don't know
How many we will kill as we grow
[HIM:] Our family is strange, we know that’s true
'Cause Grandma Shot at me, and baby I shot at you

[HIM:] Babe
[BOTH:] I shot you babe I Shot you babe

[HER:] Because of our trust funds we don’t need a cent
Before they’re shot, our bullets have all been spent
[HIM:] Ways to kill we know a lot
You’d be surprised, But we’ve never been caught

[HIM:] Babe
[BOTH:] I Shot you babe I shot you babe

[HIM:] I send you flowers in the spring with bees that will sting
[HER:] Happy or sad, I’ll mow you down
You should be scared, I’m always around
[HER:] So let them say my gun’s all wrong
'Cause I don't care, cause I still have the bombs
[HIM:] There’s never been a family like mine
We’re as friendly as porcupines

[HIM:] Babe
[BOTH:] I shot you babe I shot you babe

[HIM:] I got you to shoot my hand
[HER:] I got you hits to plan
[HIM:] I got you a new 30-30
[HER:] I got you to shoot at me
[HIM:] I got you in my sight
[HER:] I got you to tie up tight
[HIM:] I got you, I won't let you go
[HER:] I got you, you just don’t know

[BOTH:] I shot you babe....
