GUN SLINGERS

Why are they called gunslingers?
I've never seen them sling their guns.
It would seem to me daft to sling them,
Or would they sling them just for fun.

I was in the library once,
girl in there when I asked;
she gave me such a dirty look:
"Beautiful could you give me a twirl".
Then suddenly she smiled at me,
As she ever so softly replied.
"Go on with you,
Go and sling your hook".
She said this as she slung a book.

So what is this all about,
Slinging things guns and even hooks.
Then thoughtfully it dawned on me,
As I slung my boomerang away.
The answer it came back to me,
That's all I've got to say.
