Wikipedia has an article on
Gangster of Love
Jesse James and Frank James
Billy the Kid and all the rest
Supposed to be some bad cats
Out in the West

But when they dug me
And my gangster ways
They hung up their guns
And made into their graves

'Cause I'm a gangster of love
Say, I'm a gangster of love
Oh, well now
When I walk down the street
All the girls that I meet
Say: "he's a gangster of love"

(Yeah!)

I robbed a local beauty contest
For their first place winner
They found her with me out in Hollywood
Eating a big steak dinner
They tried to get her to go back
To pick up her prize
She stood up and told them:
"You just don't realize, that he's a gangster of love"

And in the morning
Gangster of love
(Uuh yeah, now!)
When I walk in to a bar
Girls from... from near and far
Say: "he's a gangster of love"

(All right!)

I jump on my white horse Cadillac
I ride across the border line
I rope 65 girls
I kiss them all the same time
I take 25 or 30
I put 'em all on a freight
A million dollar reward for me
In each and every state
Sheriff say "Is you Johnny "Guitar" Watson?"
In a very deep voice
And I say "yes sir brother sheriff, and that's your wife on the back of my horse"

'Cause I'm a gangster of love
I'm a gangster of love

(Yeah!)

When I walk down the street
All the girls that I meet
Say: "he's a gangster of love"
