Bang Bang
Nancy Sinatra Lyrics


I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

Now he's gone, I don't know why
And 'til this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)
Nancy Sinatra

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight


Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down


Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"


Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down


Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang


Now he's gone, I don't know why
And 'til this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie


Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down



R. R. Rubin

I was five, and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black, and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. My baby shot me down

Seasons came, and changed the time
When I grew up I called him mine
He would always laugh and say:
Remember when we used to play

Bang bang. I shot you down
Bang bang. You hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. I used to shoot you down

Music played, and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

Now he's gone, I don't know why
Until this day sometimes I cry
He didn't even say Goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. My baby shot me down

Bang bang. He shot me down
Bang bang. I hit the ground
Bang bang. That awful sound
Bang bang. My baby shot me down

Lyrics:
I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down

Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

Now he's gone, I don't know why
And 'til this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie

Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down



Emilio The Chicano

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]
I was five, and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight

[Hook]
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

[Verse 2]
Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"

[Hook]
Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down"

[Verse 3]
Music played, and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
Now he's gone, I don't know why
And ‘til this day sometimes I cry
He didn't even say "Goodbye"
He didn't take the time to lie

[Hook]
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground

Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"
Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down
Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang

And 'til this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Nancy Sinatra’s “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” is a masterpiece of minimalism. Just a voice telling a dark love story and a haunting guitar.
The man who played the haunting guitar is Billy Strange, a veteran studio guitar player, singer, arranger, composer and producer. He was so kind to talk with me about the birth of this enthralling song.
Lost & Sound: Did you arrange the song?

Billy Strange: There was no arrangement. I just played what I thought was appropriate and Nancy liked the way it was sounding, so we recorded it.
L&S: Why did you decide to record it with just one guitar?

BS: It was just as if the song called for it. More than one instrument would have been too many.
L&S: What kind of sound effect did you use on the guitar?

BS: I used a tremolo effect. There is a small box that creates it, made by Vox, I believe.
L&S: Do you remember which amp and guitar you used?

BS: The amp was my old Fender Twin and the guitar was the Gibson 335 that Nancy gave me
L&S: Where did you record it?

BS: It was recorded at either United Recorders or Western Recorders in Hollywood. The engineer was Eddie Brackett.
L&S: Did you and Nancy record live together or did you lay down the guitar first?

BS: We recorded it live with no overdubbing at all.
L&S: Do you have any special memories regarding the recording session?

BS: I recall that Nancy and I were both very pleased with the way it turned out. I think it was done in one take.
L&S: How do you feel about the fact, that the song became popular again thanks to the “Kill Bill” soundtrack?

BS: It was very gratifying that it was felt to be “the” song for the movie main title.
L&S: How would you interpret the lyrics?

BS: It is simply a very sad love song about lost love, as I see it.



IstyleMystyle By Kanha

I was five and he was six
We rode on horses made of sticks
He wore black and I wore white
He would always win the fight
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down
Seasons came and changed the time
When I grew up, I called him mine
He would always laugh and say
"Remember when we used to play?"
Bang bang, I shot you down
Bang bang, you hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, I used to shoot you down
Music played and people sang
Just for me the church bells rang
Now he's gone, I don't know why
And 'til this day, sometimes I cry
He didn't even say goodbye
He didn't take the time to lie
Bang bang, he shot me down
Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Bang bang, I hit the ground
Bang bang, that awful sound
Bang bang, my baby shot me down

Tarantino probably heard this song and said to himself, why not take the lyrics literally and make a movie out if it.

I think Uma Thurman started wroting the script and talk to Tarantino about it.
