The Lyrics

They call it wrestling, it is anything but...
Come on (come on, you can't hit someone like that)
Ah, come on (come on, you can't smack 'em with a bat)
Whoa! come on (come on, that would make his head go splat)
I say, ain't the win for the match a pin to the mat?

Come on (come on wrestlers do not fight like cats)
Ah, come on (come on this is too much like combat)
Whoa! come on (come on these guys seem a little fat)
I say, ain't the win for the match a pin to the mat?

These guys a-jump around like they on crack,
They get in their face, but don't pin to the mat.
They take Sally, a boy named Sue,
And go at each other like a wreckin' crew.

Come on (come on a guru with a prayer mat)
Oh, come on (come on those real wrestlers don't do that)
Ah, come on (come on looks more like mortal combat)
How they get in their face, don't pin to the mat.

If I was to rate this, I'd give ten boos,
Animals should be in the zoos.
Why they can't just pin 'em down to the floor,
Instead they act like Larry, Curly and Moe.

Come on (come on, they all actin' like a brat.)
Ah, Come on (come on, how they knock each other flat)
Oh, they wanna throw you (come on I just love it when they 'chat')
I say, ain't the win for the match a pin to the mat?

Come on (come on how they always fallin' flat)
Ah, come on (come on they get out the ring and scat)
Oh, come on (come on they're just something to laugh at)
They get in your face, yeah that wrestling's like that.

Describes those 'wrestling' matches to a T. All bluff and bluster and I wondered how they all had so much fat if they were supposed to be working out and buff.

Not bad, but a point is taken off for not knowing it was by Chris Kenner, in 1961.

I agree that this sport is no more than a cheesy soap opera. It is good for a few laughs, now and then. The Hulkster is always my favorite. It's made a good living for some ex-pro, and college athletes.
