Bang Bang - Nico Vega

Yup, another one by Nico Vega. She is one of my favorite new voices. We've tried to track down an audio recording of this - even going so far as to contact the band directly about it - and apparently this video is the only existing recording of this song ... at least for now. Personally, I sure hope to find it on a CD someday so I can listen to it whenever/wherever I want.

Nico Vega - Bang Bang

Bang, bang, bang, I'm gonna get fired out, again...
Blamin' everybody for the long time low that I put myself in.
Well, I lost my teeth in a scuffle on the street with a good man, again.
When he gave his name I felt a whole lotta shame just a-rushin' on in, yeah, I thought

bang, bang, bang, here I go shootin' again.
Well, ya know this man's got a mother at home and you know he's got friends.
Well, all my life, I've been at the bottom of a nice view (?).
Nobody likes me; everybody hates me
and I'm sold, for real, yeah.

It's a free fire, loaded gun,
pull my trigger and I come undone
It's a free fire, loaded gun,
pull my trigger and I come undone


Bang, bang, bang, here I go shootin'
Blamin' everybody for the pain, I mean I got a case to defend.
Well, all my life, I've been at the bottom of a nice view(?)
Nobody likes me; everything hates me
and I'm sold, for real, yeah.

It's a free fire, loaded gun,
pull my trigger and I come undone.
It's a free fire, loaded gun,
pull my trigger and I come undone
It's a free fire, loaded gun,
pull my trigger and I come undone
It's a free fire, loaded gun,
pull my trigger and I come undone

i am not positive of the correct lyrics of this song but it has been one of my favorite songs for a few years now and just from listening to it enough, i think a few things might be wrong here...

at the beginning i'm pretty sure she's saying "bang, bang, bang, c'mon and get fired up again... blamin' everybody for the long time life that i put myself in"

and i'm almost positive the "nice view" lyric is wrong, but i just can't ever seem to figure out what she is saying there.

also, i believe she is saying "nobody likes me and everybody hates me, and i'm su-fferin'"

and lastly, the 3rd time she sings "bang, bang, bang"... i think she's saying "blamin' everybody for the pain i'm in, i've got a case to defend"

I think in the "nice view" part she says either "nice beer" or "ice bin"
I'm not sure though. When Aja was on ustream a couple months ago I asked if she could post the lyrics for this and she said she would but I guess never got around to it.

Wow. Thanks, everybody, for taking the time to comment. This is one of my favorite songs & performances EVER! The first time I heard it, I was absolutely floored by the strength & honesty of her voice.

I'm a little behind the game here, but I believe it's,

"All my life I've been at the bottom of an ice bin,
Nobody likes me, everybody hates me,
And I'm so foreign."

I'm also pretty sure it's "fired up," not "fired out."

what do you think? instead of "i'm sold, for real" try "i'm sufferin'".

what about "i'm sufferin'" instead of "i'm sold, for real." ???

It's "Blamin' everybody for the locked up life that I put myself in."

And my educated guess is "all my life, I've been at the bottom of an ice bin"?

Hey all...thank you soooo much! I just met Nico Vega a couple of weeks ago in Detroit and absolutely fell in love! Looked 'em up on You tube and found this song that captivated me from the first play. Here I am at 2:50 a.m. in the morning wondering what the lyrics are and found this site. Ya'll are amazing! Now I can sing with her heart! Muchas Gracias!

Love the song... thanks for posting! A couple thoughts:

I think it's "fired up"

I think it might be "been at the bottom of an ash bin."

Lastly, maybe "I'm so foreign."

I hope this comes out for download someday, I already know how to play it.
