Don't Shoot Me Down - lyrics

Jack was the fool on the hill ~ a simpleton yes,
but a nice guy, he was the mock of the town - "Jack-ass"
Lived from the land and the sea, on of a kind
in a cruel world. The simpleton died out of lack of love
"Why do they just want to hurt me"?
He often asked himself ~ "why" ~ ?
"I have done nothing to harm them
I want to live and be loved" .....
"Don't shoot... ~ shoot me down
Don't shoot... ~ shoot me down-down"...
Jack was alone in the end, the night his house caught fire
so tired and diseased, couldn't move or speak
The people looked up to the hill, flames getting higher
and "Higher", oh, never mind Jack he can help himself
"Why do they just want to hurt me" ?
He often asked himself ~ "Why" ~ ?
"I have done nothing to harm them
I want to live and be loved" .....
"Don't shoot... ~ shoot me down
Don't shoot... ~ shoot me down-down"...
Smoke and fire - a fine man is dead
left to suffer - alone in his bed
We should learn to live as brothers - care for strangers
listen my friend you can still hear him pray
"Don't shoot... ~ shoot me down
Don't shoot... ~ shoot me down-down"...
