Boxing Lessons (History of Boxing)

lyrics

Listen up kids you don’t want to miss this
A tale of blood in the ring
A big loud man with punishing fists
Jack Johnson started this thing

The big Brown Bomber came next I suppose
Gave Schmeling a hell of a swelling
Step on up for the bum of the month
Louis banged like he boomed

The greatest of all time all time steps to the ring
Trust me kid it ain’t Cassius
Sugar Ray Robinson pound for pound
Would have whooped all the other greats asses

He’d slide and move then punish you
With a smile slick black hair
LaMotta didn’t matter he was just like the rest
At the Valentine’s Day Massacre

A boy named Clay won the gold one day
America swooned as he smile
Changed his name to Muhammad Ali
And tilted with the world for a while

Then sonny came Liston with two hands like pistons
But Frazier was the real sight to see
If you only ever watch one fight in your life
Frazier vs Muhammad Ali

Then came the day for a second Sugar Ray
With teeth as bright as his gold
Leonard truly was a genius in the ring
And made many millions I’m told

He’d slide and move then punish you
With a smile slick black hair
Haggler didn’t matter he was just like the rest
At the Valentine’s Day Massacre

Tyson was the king of the ring for awhile
Rocking that bad boy style
Small and lean with an uppercut clean
Lucky if you walking out alive.

Took a little bite out of Mr. Holyfield
A personal favorite of mine
Traded blows with Mr Riddick Bowe
And fought him like a lion 3 times

It seems these days all anyone says
Is Mayweather Pacquaio now
But Pac can’t drop Marquez like says
When he’s safe to take the steroid test now



Please don’t kill me Pac Man fans :)
