Gun Slingers
Mighty Sparrow Lyrics


Sparrow selling guns nowadays,
That's what really pays
Sparrow selling guns nowadays,
That's what really pays
Nearly every young man is a gun slinger
With his razor and his steel knuckle on his finger
Don't mind they dress in suit and bow tie
All of them looking for guns to buy

We young and strong
We ain't 'fraid a soul in town
Who think they bad
To meet them we more than glad
We got we gun
And partner, we ain't making fun
So if you smart clear the way
Or if you think you bad make you play

(We young and strong
We ain't 'fraid a soul in town
Who think they bad
To meet them we more than glad
We got we gun
And partner, we ain't making fun
So if you smart clear the way
Or if you think you bad make you play)

If you don't believe me
Wait and you will see
They coming down by the crates
From quite in the States
Ah have me contacts way they come from
Ah have me contacts in the Custom
Ah have more contacts than I could tell
Now I want to contact a place to sell

Because
We young and strong
We ain't 'fraid a soul in town
Who think they bad
To meet them we more than glad
We got we gun
And partner, we ain't making fun
So if you smart clear the way
Or if you think you bad make you play

When you catch gun fever
You two hands do start to shiver
This time you ready to attack
Like Audie Murphy in "To Hell and Back"
If you see a man ain't afraid to get kill
Is to give him a one way ticket to boot hill
Just get a couple of your friends
Swear him 'way you did it in self defence

Because
We young and strong
We ain't 'fraid a soul in town
Who think they bad
To meet them we more than glad
We got we gun
And partner, we ain't making fun
So if you smart clear the way
Or if you think you bad make you play

Save your cash, save your cash
Ah selling razor, ah selling cutlash
Sledge hammer, hatchet, even saw
Any kind of weapon that's good for war
Ah done get me licence ever since
Now ah only waiting for violence
Come and buy from me, don't be afraid
Ah selling from cannon to razor blades.

Because
I young and strong
I ain't 'fraid a soul in town
Who think they bad
To meet them I'm more than glad
I got me gun
And partner, I ain't making fun
So if you smart clear the way
Or if you think you bad make you play

(We young and strong
We ain't 'fraid a soul in town
Who think they bad
To meet them we more than glad
We got we gun
And partner, we ain't making fun
So if you smart clear the way
Or if you think you bad make you play)

My dad had this record on an lp by Sparrow. He played it for me back around 1964 or so.

Probably my fav outta the time period. Along with lord commander "no crime no law" and mama Calypso "ask me why I run!" 🤘🏼

This and Mad Bomber and most of the songs from this period are so fabulous.
