Another mass shooting, ho-hum
Life in America is so humdrum
Be proud of the land of the free
The land of deadly opportunity

Born with a right to own a gun
Get prepared to duck and run
Never knowing when bullets may fly
Going to school means willing to die

Another normal day in America land
How many more deaths can we stand?
There seems to be no end in sight
As long as owning guns is a right

Second Amendment must be removed
So life in America can be improved
Most politicians are nothing but scum
One more massacre, oh well, ho-hum
