Louie, Louie Lyrics by Black Flag


Black Flag Lyrics

Louie, Louie Lyrics
Louie, Louie!
We gotta go.
I said now Louie, Louie!
We gotta go.

You know the pain, that's in my heart,
it just shows, I'm not very smart.
Who needs love, when you've got a gun?

Who needs love, to have any fun?
I said now Louie, Louie!
We gotta go!
Said, now screwie Louie!


We gotta go.
Louie, Louie!
We gotta go.
I said now Louie, Louie!
We gotta go!
