LyricsEdit

2CELLOS and Sky Ferreira's versionEdit

[Verse 1]:
I was 5 and he was 6,
We rode on horses made of sticks.
He wore black and I wore white,
He would always win the fight.

[Chorus]:
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 change the time,
When I grew up I called him mine.
He would always laugh and sing,
Remember when we used to play.

[Chorus]:
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.

[Bridge]:
Music played and people sang.
Just for me the church bells rang.

[Verse 3]:
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.

[Chorus]:
Bang bang,
He shot me down.
Bang bang,
I hit the ground.
Bang bang,
That awful sound.
Bang bang,
My baby shot me down.
