"The Hand of John L. Sullivan" as written by and David King Bridget Regan....
I am the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan
Fighter till the end, legend he will be
And if any man should ask, if any man could carry
I am the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan

You may be tough
But you'll never knock him down
He is a towering god but not our sacred cow
He maybe caught
But never on the ropes
He is a diamond cut for every man poor man's hope
Ah, he was always there to meet ye, he's the champion of the people
The first and last name ever to this day

Now, I'm the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan
Fighter till the end, a legend he will be
If any man should ask, if any man could carry
I am the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan

The hand of Begorra
Ah nothing more shall be
He used to struggle in this shame for all to see
Ah, he was always there to meet ye he's the champion of the people
The first and last name ever to this day

Now, I'm the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan
Fighter till the end, a legend he will be
And if any man should ask, if any man could carry
I'm the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan

Come gather yourself, drink to your health
It's the one thing that money can't buy
But remember the loss, to the loved ones we all leave behind
So pass the glass the over, Sullivan just ordered, the glory days have returned
And let's live the good life, until the last goodbye

Oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh
Oh, oh, oh

You may be tough (oh)
But you'll never knock him down (oh, oh, oh)
He is a towering god (oh) but not our sacred cow (oh, oh, oh)
He was always there to meet ye, he's the champion of the people
The first and last name ever to this day

Now I am the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan
Fighter till the end, a legend he will be
And if any man should ask, if any man could carry
I'm the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan

I am the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan
Fighter till the end, legend he will be
And if any man should ask Jim Casey is my name
Now, I'm the man with the plan to shake the hand of John L. Sullivan
