This song is a cover of "Once Upon a Time in the West" by ​Dire Straits.
Some people get a cheap laugh breaking up the speed limit
Scaring pedestrians for a minute
Tearing up the highways, driving on the grass
Leaving just enough room to pass
Sunday driver never took a test
Oh yeah, once upon a time in the west

Now, it's no use saying that you don't know nothing
It's still gonna get you if you don't do something
Sitting on a fence that's a dangerous course
You could even get a bullet from the peace-keeping force
Even the hero gets a bullet in the chest
Oh yeah, once upon a time in the west
Alright

Mother Mary your children are slaughtered
Some of you mothers better lock up your daughters
Who's protecting the innocenti
But heap big trouble in the land of plenty
How we're gonna do what's best
Oh yeah, once upon a time in the west
Alright

Once upon a time in the west
Once upon a time in the west
Once upon a time in the west
