The Lyrics

Never been to Hackensack, don't know if they have a boxing fraternity there, but it's such a great name....
Hackensack fighter! (fighter, fighter...)

It's only Round One and you hit the floor
Another third-rate Tyson with a glassy jaw
You have got the footwork of a snail on crack
You're a washed-up wreck, but you'll always be a Hackensack fighter....
Hackensack fighter!

All the thugs are lining up to have a piece
So you've seen more canvass than Henri Matisse
You have swallowed so much blood you like the taste
You've a mashed up face, it's the visage of a Hackensack fighter....
Hackensack fighter!

Hackensack fighter (fighter, fighter...)

Well, you bought your boxing gloves at Toys'R'Us
And you look like you've been run down by a bus
It's a long three minutes waiting for the bell
And the salts to smell keep you upright like a Hackensack fighter.....
Hackensack fighter!

Hey, your trainer's getting drunk on cheap vino
And your manager has moved to Buffalo
Your medical insurance has maxed out
Yet another bout, and a pasting for the Hackensack fighter......
Hackensack fighter!

Hackensack fighter... (repeat ad infinitum)

Yes, the Matisse line is priceless.

Even Tony Soprano would like this, although I doubt he's ever heard of Matisse. He probably think "ma tease" is Dr. Melfi. Oops, I did a bad pun...
