Lyrics for Don’t Shoot Me, Santa:

 

[Verse 1: Brandon Flowers & Santa]
Oh Santa, I’ve been waiting on you
That’s funny kid, because I’ve been coming for you
Oh Santa, I’ve been killing just for fun
Well the party’s over kid, because I
Because I got a bullet in my gun

A bullet in your what?

 

[Pre-Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
Santa’s got a bullet in his gun
You know it, Santa’s got a bullet in his gun

 

[Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
I’ve been a clean living boy, I promise you
Did every little thing you asked me to
I can’t believe the things I’m going through
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
Well, no one else around believes me
But the children on the block they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

 

[Verse 2: Brandon Flowers & Santa]
Oh Santa, It’s been a real hard year (Year)
There just ain’t no getting around this, life is hard
But look at me, I turned out alright

Hey Santa, why don’t we talk about it? Work it out
Believe me, this ain’t what I wanted
I love all you kids, you know that
Hell, I remember when you were just 10 years old
Playing out there in the desert
Just waiting for a sip of that sweet Mojave rain

 

[Pre-Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
In the sweet Mojave rain, the boy was on his own

 

[Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
I’ve been a clean living boy, I promise you
Did every little thing you asked me to
I can’t believe the things I’m going through
Hey, Santa Claus
Well, no one else around believes me
But the children on the block they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy

 

[Bridge: Brandon Flowers]
They had it coming so why can’t you see?
I couldn’t turn my cheek no longer
The sun is going down and Christmas is near
Just look the other way and I’ll disappear forever
Woo!

 

[Chorus: Brandon Flowers]
Don’t shoot me, Santa Claus
Well, no one else around believes me!
But the children on the street they tease me
I couldn’t let them off that easy
