The police in New York City
They chased a boy right through the park
And in a case of mistaken identity
They put a bullet through his heart

Heartbreakers, with your .44
I want to tear your world apart
You heartbreaker with your .44
I want to tear your world apart

A 10 year old girl on the street corner
Sticking needles in her arm
She died in the dirt of an alleyway
Her mother said she had no chance, no chance

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker
She stuck the pins right in her heart
Heartbreaker, pain maker
Stole the love right out of your heart

Oh yeah, oh yeah
I want to tear your world apart

Heartbreaker, heartbreaker
You stole the love right out of my heart
Heartbreaker, heartbreaker
I want to tear that world...

Ah yeah, ah yeah
I want to tear that world apart
Heartbreaker, heartbreaker
You stole the love right...

Ah yeah
You stuck the pins right in her (...)
Ah yeah
Stuck the pins right in her heart
