Dead Ringer

Iím a dead ringer for a gunslinger.

A rock Ďn roll singer and a stiff finger.

If you cross my path, donítcha dare linger.

Iíll put you away to stay Ďcause Iím a dead ringer.

My eyes last night turned red at the sight

Of a young girl, she was all alone.

My blood was hot and believe it or not

I fed that poor girl a bone.

I fancy meeting the man off of his beat

Whoíll call my number and seek.

A knife in his middle; a dead manís fiddle.

A grave on some dark street.

Iím a mudslinger, the beeís stinger.

The bell ringer of the coming fight.

Iím the king that everybody hates.

The champion of sin and second rate.

Ringer, slinger, singer, finger.

Ringer, stinger, etc.
