The Lyrics

This is the story of a boxer who bragged that he is the greatest guy-who-thumps-people-in-the-face-for-a-living that ever done did live...OR IS HE?!
Oh buddy, oh buddy, don't matter how much you try
Because I'm gonna, you know I'm gonna send your mouthguard to the sky
Not gonna reach the finals, all that you'll see is the dark
Greatest like Muhammad Ali, so you'd better duck
When you're out I'll write ya, could be tricky with these gloves
Made to sock your eyes, brah

Like Foreman, George Foreman in your grill
See stars 'round your eyes
The judge'll count to ten, yeah, and you won't be standin', nope
May be featherweight, yeah, but I'm strong as the Hulk
Oscar De La Hoya, couldn't beat you faster, brah
Like Tyson, might bite ya

See these red gloves? So fast they're punching
Red gloves, blur you'll be seeing
No, I'm not stalling

Wrong, buddy, wrong, buddy, I know I'll knock out your lights
No other reason, swear there's no reason I have yet to properly fight
Yes, soon I'm gonna punch ya, send you right to the floor
The match will be over, stretcher goes out the door
And you will be on it, and not me 'cause I'm the tops
Yes, I'm still insultin'

Cause my red gloves are so match-ending
It's just no fun in watching
That's why I'm stalling

Hey buddy, big buddy, why are you just standing by?
Come on you gotta, some point you gotta stop glaring at me and fight (you'll lose, but you have to fight)
Use those red gloves, let's see 'em swinging
Red gloves, I see you're charging
There we go, buddy!
Red glove, just one? Can't harm me
Won't duck, cause I'm so sporting
That glove, won't lie, won't even hurt me
Nice punch, hey guy, why's the room spinning?

...guess he wasn't. All those famous boxers he compared himself to, yet he was more similar to Mario: one hit and doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo-doo. And the boxing references, just in case: Muhammad Ali once said "I am the greatest", George Foreman had his own cooking grill, Mike Tyson bit a dude, and Oscar De La Hoya sure does exist.

Love the OS, and when you first mentioned "red gloves"...I didn't even think of it being a boxing themed spoof. Love the "Foreman up in your grill" line the most and I like how you ended the story just with the final line. Excellent job here, the pacing seemed a bit loose in some places, but I'll chalk that up to the OS.

Very good parody, I wish the story could have ended a little less jarringly, but no real complaint from me....I got a glass jaw, so I don't wanna kiss the canvas.

It sure stung like a bee but this parody packs a punch.

(Artistry) I really liked this! I love boxing, so those references were choice for me. They were great because they were references, but they also serviced good jokes, like, "Like Foreman, George Foreman in your grill" great line! The story did end abruptly, just like a TKO ;)
