Going to go downtown, going to get my gun
Going to dress real sharp, going to beat my drum and
I ain't going to lie

Going to walk so slow, going to talk just right
And my diamond ring going to shine so bright and
I ain't going to lie

I've got a debt to repay
I ain't going to cry (lie)
I put a gun in your face
You'll pay with your life (for the crime)

And I've got my ears and I've got my eyes
And I've got my narks and my alibis
I won't waste your time

Making one false move, making one mistake
When the juice is squeezed, that's the way it breaks
You'll pay for the crime

Your tongue licking way out of place
I'll rip it out, yeah
I'll stick a gun in your face
You'll pay with your life

I'll tell you

I taught her everything, I taught her how to dream
I taught her everything, I'm going to teach her how to scream
I taught her all she knows, I taught her how to lie
I taught her everything, I'm going teach her how to cry

And you caused me hurt and you caused me pain
And you turned the tap on my burning rage
I can't put it out

Going to leave no sign, going to leave no trace
Going to leave this town in a state of grace
Give me the power

I taught her everything, I taught her how to speak
I taught her all she knows, I taught her how to eat
I half invented her and now she acts so chic
I taught her everything but now she's obsolete

I taught her everything, how to read and write
I taught her all she knows, she was a neophyte
I taught her everything, I loved to watch that glow
I taught her everything and now I want to see her go

I taught her everything
Ah yeah

I taught her everything, yeah, I taught her how to cheat
I taught her all she knows, she was so indiscreet
I taught her everything, I taught her how to lie
I taught her everything, I'm going to teach her how to cry

Yeah
I taught her everything, oh yeah
