I believe in protecting
Of course, in self-defense
Not in aggressively attacking
Somebody standing on the fence.
In presence of a gun
There’s a potential violence
This is no obvious fun for no one
In the crowd whose dying to dance.
Hide or put your Wesson away
Because everyone deserves another day
Use Wesson oil instead to cook or fry
Fish, goat meat, turkey, chicken and apple pie.
