(To tune of Who Will Buy by Lionel Bart from 1968 film Oliver, which was based on the 1960 London West End musical of the same name)

Who will end this horrible feeling?
Feel so bad, I swear I might die
Who will end the slaughter of our children?
So many guns out there to buy

By and by, one engineered for killing.
Does its job, the logic here defies
Children die and no one’s even willing
To challenge those gun-lobby guys

And when we’re looking in our mirrors
How do we face ourselves each day?
And who when finally meet their maker
Will hide those cards from NRA

There’s no time, another sad mass shooting
One more crime committed right here by
Those who sob inside remaining silent
Refusing to oppose the lie
Allowing anyone to buy
Another weapon one more time
