   Happiness Is A Warm Gun
by John T. Marck
 




Happiness Is A Warm Gun

Written by Lennon, who got the idea from a gun magazine cover that read, "Happiness Is A Warm Gun In Your Hands," also Lennon's original song title. The song dealt with three themes. The first was Lennon's indignation of the American firearms lobby; the second was a sort of rock 'n' roll history; and the last was imagery that conveyed Lennon's sexual passion for Yoko.

She's not a girl who misses much,

do do do do do do, oh, yeah

she's well acquainted with the touch of the velvet hand,

 like a lizard on a window pain

the man in the crowd with the multicolored mirror on his hobnail boots

lying with his eyes while his hands are busy working overtime

a soap impression of his wife which he ate and donated to the National Trust

I need a fix cause I'm going down,

down to the bits that I left uptown

I need a fix cause I'm going down,

Mother Superior jump the gun

Mother Superior jump the gun,

Mother Superior jump the gun

Mother Superior jump the gun,

Mother Superior jump the gun

Mother Superior jump the gun

happiness is a warm gun,

(Bang Bang Shoot Shoot)

happiness is a warm gun mama

(Bang Bang Shoot Shoot)

when I hold you in my arms, (oh yeah)

and I feel my finger on your trigger (oh yeah)

I know nobody can do no harm,

because,

happiness is a warm gun mama

(Bang Bang Shoot Shoot)

happiness is a warm gun,

yes it is,

(Bang Bang Shoot Shoot)

happiness is a warm,

yes it is, gun

(Happiness Bang Bang Shoot Shoot)

Ah, don't you know that, Happiness

(Happiness)

is a warm gun mama,

(is a warm gun yeah)
