Lyrics[edit]

    You look so pretty
    When you cry.
    Don’t wanna hit you
    But the only thing,
    Between our love is
    (1) a bloody nose
    (2) a busted lip
    And
    (3) a blackened eye


    You look so pretty
    When you cry.
    Don’t wanna hit you
    But the only thing,
    Between our love is
    (1) a bloody nose
    (2) a busted lip
    And
    (3) a blackened eye


    You’re a little pistol
    And I’m fucking pistol whipped
    You’re a little pistol
    And I’m fucking pistol whipped


    (cock, cock, cock it)


    When I undo my belt,
    You melt and you walk away
    With a red, red, red, red welt
    (or so they say)


    When I undo my belt,
    You melt and you walk away
    With a red, red, red, red welt
    (or so they say)


    You’re a little pistol
    And I’m fucking pistol whipped
    You’re a little pistol
    And I’m fucking pistol whipped


    I wanna have your ache
    And beat you too
    I wanna have your ache
    And beat you too
    I wanna have your ache
    And beat you too
    I wanna have your ache
    And beat you too


    You’re a little pistol
    And I’m fucking pistol whipped
    You’re a little pistol
    And I’m fucking pistol whipped


    (cock, cock, cock it)


Trivia[edit]

  • The line "I wanna have your ache/And beat you too" is a play on the common English phrase "you can't have your cake and eat it too."
  • Manson has played the guitar solo of the song on live performances.
