The Lyrics

I’m in the mood for gloves,
Hitting pugs who come hear me.
Punching them out does cheer me,
I’m in the mood for gloves.

Belting ’em in the eyes—
Lights out after they wonder,
“Was that the sound of thunder
That I heard boom above?”

My fists encased in leather,
The victims creamed. . .need aid.
Off they’re carted on stretcher.
Pow! Just one punch, and out they’re laid.

This is a crowd of schmucks;
They come for pain and get it.
On the fixed fight, they’ve bet it—
I’m hit, deck looms. . .more bucks
