There's probably no such thing as Bigfoot
But it's hard to prove
If he shows up at your cabin late one night
A shotgun's what you might want to use.
Blow off his hairy mug
With a pump action, solid slug.
It's two hundred bucks at Wal-Mart
And sounds like this.

When the time comes,
You're gonna want that gun.
When the time comes,
You're gonna want that gun.

There's probably no zombie apocalypse
but you never know.
So a semiautomatic rifle
Is a good way to go
Aim for the head
And fill the bastards full of lead
It's four hundred bucks at Wal-Mart
And sounds like this

There's probably no Illuminati
But you can't be sure.
So a snub-nosed, five-shot revolver
Fits right in your purse
It's small without too much kick
.38 special gonna do the trick
It's six hundred bucks on eBay
And sounds like this.
