lyrics

You’ve got your boxing gloves on
And your fighting shirt
If no one comes to take you away
Someone’s going to get hurt

You see the moon is lit up
Like a silver plate
And you see faces everywhere

You’re ready to fight them
If they get too close
And baby that’s the way these things occur

It’s just the thrill of the springtime
It’s just the pull of the moon
Another drop in the ocean
Another flower that’s in bloom

We all know that seasons will change
And this burning madness will fade
But oh, the sun it shined down once
Between the rains
On your parade

Now you’re up on your hind legs
And you're boxing clever!
We love it when you show some sport

The origin of the species
It gets us every time
Cause we’re excited by the sight of drawing blood

It’s just the thrill of the springtime
It’s just the pull of the moon
Another drop in the ocean
Another flower that’s in bloom

And Newton's apple will fall...

We all know that seasons will change
And this burning madness will fade
But oh, the sun it shined down once
Between the rains
On your parade
