Janie's Got A Gun
( Tyler / Hamilton )



Chik... oh no now honey what'a you done
Chik... oh no now that's the sound a my gun
Chik... oh no now honey what'a you done
Chik... oh no now that's the sound... sound... it's the sound...
Run run run...run run run...
Run run run... run run run...

Janie got a gun
Janie got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From lookin' straight at the sun
What did her daddy do
What did he a put'choo through

They say when Janie was arrested
They found him underneath the train
But man he had it comin'
Now that Janie's got a gun
She ain't never gonna be the same

Janie got a gun
Janie got a gun
Her dog day just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Tell me now it's untrue
What did her daddy do

He jacked the little bitty baby
The man has got to be insane... yeah
They say the spell that he was under
The lightnin' and the thunder
Knew that someone had to stop the pain

Run away run away from the pain
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away from the pain
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away run run away... wooh

Janie got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
What did her daddy do
It's Janie's last I.O.U.

She had to take him down easy
And put a bullet in his brain
She said 'cause nobody believes me
The man was such a sleaze
He ain't never gonna be the same

Run away run away from the pain
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away from the pain
Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Run away run away run run away

Janie's got a gun
Janie got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Everybody is on the run

Janie got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run (Honey honey what's your problem)
'Cause Janie got a gun (Tell me it ain't right)
Janie got a gun (A was it daddys cradle robbin' that a...)
Her dog day's just begun (Made'cha scream at night)
Everybody is on the run
Janie got a gun Janie got a gun
Janie got a gun Janie got a gun
Her dog day has just begun
Now everybody is on the run

Her dog day's just begun as in "The dog days of summer"... Long hot sticky sultry uncomfortable days that never seem to fuckin' end! Only in this case it's not the weather that's causing the shitty days... it's the fact that Janie knows her father is going molest her again...




I.O.U. is an abbreviation for "I owe you"... like when you have to pay someone back for a favor or when you borrow something.



It's Janie's last I.O.U. has to mean that she has one last final payback... to her father... for everything he's done to her... and NOT... for her! In this case it isn't a welcome "payback" as if she were returning money... but rather more like "payback is a bitch"... and the payback she gives to her father is of course blowing that losers head off with a gun! So in this case... payback really was a bitch!!
