Mister Majestic fires a gun
Mister Majestic
He got a lie on his tongue
You canít help but listen
He got a way with words
Donít ask useless questions
Unless you want to
Leave this world

Madam Odessa carries a knife
Across to the jailhouse
In her pretty style
She ainít looking out for business
She got a way with words
She is gonna take that man
For what he done to her

This was how the West was won
Lawless and unruly
Now I guess whatís done is done

She took her old man in cold blood
He hit the deck
With that si-si-si-sickening thud
Life was cheap, thatís what we
Always heard about
It was over something stupid
They could have talked it out

This was how the West was won
Lawless and unruly
Now I guess whatís done is done
Billy thought that Billy was right

This was how the West was won
Lawless and unruly
Now I guess whatís done is done
Billy thought that Billy was right

Where is the killer, nobody knows
Heís waiting in the dark saloon
For night to close
He tried to cheat at the gambling table
A stranger pulls and fires
As he falls he sees the stranger is
Madam in disguise

This was how the West was won
Lawless and unruly
Now I guess whatís done is done
Billy thought that Billy was right

This was how the West was won
Lawless and unruly
Now I guess whatís done is done
Billy thought that Billy was right

This was how the West was won
This was how the West was won
This was how the West was won
This was how the West was won
