Friday night is fight night in the city
seven mothers grab your shining boxing gloves
you will need 'em, to defeat 'em
who will take the gold picking and the betting (?)
bright lights and fist fights bring the attendance up
it's so trendy on the marquee

and I will wai-ai-ait if there's anything left to tell me (don't tell me)
well I'm sorry darling you have crossed the line
and I will wai-ai-ait if there's anything left of me
I'll show you all the doctor's my eyes can't deny

I will throw the fight I swear to Jesus
clearly head inside the main offense tonight
she believed him, cause he's bleeding
tongue-tied in the ninth round of contention
our fair lady wins a no contesting bout
with a hand gun, to a loved one

and I will wai-ai-ait
if there's anything left just tell me (don't tell me)
that everything is gonna be just fine
and I will wai-ai-ait
if there's anything left of me
I'll give you anything you need of me to make this right

and I will wai-ai-ait if there's anything left don't tell me
that everything is going to be all right, no
and i will wai-ai-ait
if there's anything left behind don't tell me
cause this time everything will not be fine

    General Commentto fill in some of the question marks:
    I will throw the fight I swear to Jesus
    "Clearly head inside the main offense tonight"

    in the fourth verse:
    "That everything is gonna be just fine"

    Besides the question marks, which are fine since it's hard to figure out words, could you edit all the mistakes and capitilization? It's distracting. Thanks for posting though =]

    General Commentits 'grab your shiny boxing gloves'
    ...aside from that, i like top think of him referencing a friday night out with someone, a girfriend/boyfriend or husband/wife...as a fight. all the ups and downs of a night with someone...good conversation/forced conversation....good silence/bad silence. all that shit, it just parallels to a multi-bout fight very well

    Lyric CorrectionI think that these are the correct lyrics:

    Friday night is fight night in the city
    Southern mothers, grab your shining boxing gloves
    You will need 'em
    To defeat 'em
    Who will take the gold picking and betting?
    Bright lights and a fist fight bring attendance up
    It's so trendy on the marquee

    And I will waitwaitwait if there's anything left to tell me
    Well I'm sorry darling, you have crossed the line
    And I will waitaitait if there's anything left of me
    I'll show you all the doctors my eyes can't deny

    I will throw the fight, I swear to Jesus
    Clearly head inside the main event tonight
    She believed him
    'Cause he's bleeding
    Tongue-tied in the ninth round of contention
    Our fair lady wins a no contesting bout
    With a hand gun
    To a loved one

    And I will wiataitaitait
    If there's anything left just tell me
    That everything is gonna be just fine
    And I will waitaitaitwait
    If there's anything left of me
    I'll give you anything you need to make this right.

    And I will waitaitait, if there's anything left don't tell me
    That everything is gonna be all right, nooo
    And I will waitaitwait
    If there's anything left behind don't tell me
    'Cause this time everything will not be fine.
    Whoaaaa Whoaaaaa Whoaaaa Whoaaaaaa
