Song Meaning
Verse 1
Jesse James and Frank James,
Billy the Kid and all the rest,
Supposed to be some bad cats
Out in the West.
Verse 2
But when they dug me,
And my gangster ways,
They hung up their guns,
And made into their graves.
Verse 3
Cause I'm a gangster of love,
Say, I'm a gangster of love.
Oh, well now,
When I walk down the street,
All the girls that I meet
Say: "he's a gangster of love"
Verse 4
(Yeah!)
Verse 5
I robbed a local beauty contest,
for their first place winner,
they found her with me out in Hollywood,
eating a big steak dinner.
They tried to get her to go back,
to pick up her prize.
She stood up and told them:
"You just don't realize, that he's a gangster of love"
Verse 6
And in the morning,
gangster of love.
(Uuh yeah, now!)
When I walk in to a bar,
girls from... from near and far,
say: "he's a gangster of love".
Verse 7
(Alright!)
Verse 8
I jump on my white horse Cadillac,
I ride across the border line,
I rope 65 girls,
I kiss them all the same time,
I take 25 or 30,
I put 'em all on a freight,
A million dollar reward for me,
In each and every state,
Sheriff say "Is you Johnny "Guitar" Watson?"
In a very deep voice
And I say "yes sir brother sheriff, and that's your wife on the back of my horse"
Verse 9
Cause I'm a gangster of love
I'm a gangster of love
Verse 10
(Yeah!)
Verse 11
When I walk down the street,
All the girls that I meet
Say: "he's a gangster of love"
