Neil:
I tire of your mind games,
I'm sick of playing "don't wake daddy"
good sir,
No more rock, paper, scissors for me

But wait, are we not civilised gentlemen here?
I challenge you to a battle of knifessss-a!

Knife fight!
You're gonna fight for your life
Knife fight!
You're gonna fight with a knife
Knife fight
A really, really, really sharp knife
(Yeah, knife fight!)

I'm a crazy (crazy) sonofabitch,
I'ma cut you (cut you), swish, swish
In a knife fight, (knife fight),
knife fight, (knife fight)
KNIFE FIGHT, KNIFE FIGHT!

Neil: Let me tell you something, I can't be beat!
Marty: Oh yeah?
Neil: Yeah, 'cause I'm the king of the streets!
Marty: Well guess what man, I'll pin you to the wall!
Neil: Oh yeah?
Marty: Yeah, your knife is way too small!
Neil: Hey, my knife is super sharp and that's what counts! I'm gonna make you bleed copious amounts!
Marty: Yeah, well I'll be sure to thank you - right after I shank you!
Neil: Punk!
Marty: Dweeb!

Knife fight!
You're gonna fight for your life
Knife fight!
You're gonna fight with a knife
Knife fight!
A really, really, really sharp knife
(Yeah, knife fight)

I'm a crazy (crazy) sonofabitch,
I'ma cut you (cut you), swish, swish
In a knife fight, (knife fight), knife fight, (knife fight)
KNIFE FIGHT!
(knife fight, knife fight!)

Neil: I'm gonna slice you up
Marty: I'm gonna cut you down
Neil: I'll put you in your place
Marty: I'll put you underground
Neil: This is the end for you, you gutter crawling cur...
Marty: I got a tip for you, get the point?
Neil: Yeah, sure.
Marty: It's time to face the music.
Neil: Time to face the facts!
Marty: Time to bite the bullet!
Neil: Time pay the tax!
Marty: Work on a blade of fury!
Neil: I am a ball of rage.
Marty: You ready sucka?
Neil: More than ready...
Both: ENGAGE!

KNIFE!

FIGHT!

CUT!

STAB!

KNIFE!

OW!

POKE!

KNIFE!


Marty: Hey, wait a minute here!
Neil: Oh, WHAT is it?
Marty: Knives are dangerous; we could get hurt
Neil: ...Hurt? *quietly* I don't want to get hurt.
Marty: Who does?
Neil: Ok, well, in-in that case,
I challenge you to a...
Both: TICKLE FIGHT!

[upbeat banjo enters]
Tickle fight, it's a tickle fight,
don't bring no knife to a tickle fight
just bring your fingers
and bring a feather
and everyone can sing together now

tickle fight, tickle fight
la di blah di dum dum
tickle fight

Tickle fight, tickle fight
Whoopee doo zigzag tickle fight
Ding dong doodly
knick knack noodly
fee fi fo fum
kit and caboodle-y

Tickle fight, tickle fight
Tickle tickle tickle
fight - hey!

Marty: hey hey, yay... that was fun... where's my knife?

    General CommentSatire.. about tiny children in gangs.

    (Tiny Children.. pretty much anyone in highschool, and even younger quite pathetically,)

    Gangs are actually a business. Not childs play. But either way not something to get into.

    General CommentHaha, gangs. :D I love the final line by Marty: "Oh, that was fun... where's my knife?"

    I think this song is satirising pretty much the violence in the world today... particularly the use of sarcasm in "civilised gentlemen" part :D
