Hey, what does Shankaboot mean?
Rommel, I met him by coincidence
He was a delivery
My son Rommel, he's been kicked out of school
You pick him up
And you keep him with you
Until I'm done with work
So this delivery turned out to be a kid
He's the smartest kid I've ever seen
He's not a normal kid
Do you know what this monkey did today?
He pinned the teacher on her chair
He can do anything
He dismantled an AK-47 right in front of me
In like 15 seconds
In 15 seconds he had dismantled it
And put it back together
Son of a bitch!
Who taught you how to do that?!
This guy, he learned from his dad
His dad used to fight in the civil war
He taught him ever since he was a kid
Guns guns guns guns
So it's all about guns in his head
In summer he takes me to camps
With lots and lots of people
We play football
We climb on trees
And my dad and I train with guns
Kids nowadays, they're all about toys
Before they used to get them hammers and stuff
Tools and stuff... Now they get them guns
And Power Rangers and I don't know what
And they teach them these things as kids
And during the holidays
It's all a mess
Everybody has a BB gun
And they're all shooting their eyes off
And hurting themselves all over the place
It's a frenzy
It's nobody's fault
The problem is everybody turns a blind eye
And nobody says anything to them
And whoever doesn't have an actual gun
Has a pellet gun, with the round steel bullets
And these guns make a sound like real guns
Guns are so cheap here
And they're everywhere
In Beirut, outside Beirut, in the Bekaa
You can get guns from anywhere
Real guns, real guns!
Where I live they were firing B-7s the other day
Just because a politician spoke
They fired a B-7!
What do you think?
