Do you remember, Gerry Cooney?
Girls, put your tittles away

Yeah, this great man
The Great White Hope
He slipped back between the ropes

And he never stepped inside
The spit bucket that night he did fight
And he looked at me
Gave me a wink
Then Cooney yeah, he just started to sing

He sang:

Wop-bam-ba-lu-ba
Wop-bam-boo

A-tutti-frutti-ah-rooti
Shabba-labba-labba-dingdong
Wop-bam-boo

Gerry Cooney
I'll fight for you

Yeah, I remember Saint Steven's Day
Cooney came over
He hoped to make way
He said son, come out outside
He said, I know it's dark

(But he, he took one turn and he just trailed off)

So I put on his gloves
That don't fit quite right
It left me so cold
I wanted to fight

So I hit him one time
I hit him two time

Yeah, and Cooney
He just smiled

He sang:

Wop-bam-ba-lu-ba
Wop-bam-boo

A-tutti-frutti-ah-rooti
Shabba-labba-labba-dingdong
Wop-bam-boo

Gerry Cooney
Yeah, I'll fight for you

(Yeah, you went to fight on the other cow
141, yeah I was too high
So I grounded my weight down to 136
Yeah, I know I know, skinny and six
Come on, Cooney. You're not responsible
Step out the way, I'll take one of your rounds
Come on, Cooney! Get up off the ground!)

Yeah, I remember
Gerry Cooney
Men, put your gusto to shame
He fought for us
Inside the ring
Sure, he lost
But at least we could sing, sing:

Wop-bam-ba-lu-ba
Wop-bam-boo

A-tutti-frutti-ah-rooti
Shabba-labba-labba-dingdong
Wop-bam-boo

Gerry Cooney
I love you
