The Lyrics

This parody contains a couple of verses from the Bruce Springsteen original that did not appear in the more popular interpretation by Manfred Mann.
The madman stammers
'Cause he can't use proper grammar
And he'll soon be old and fat

And he gave out some lumps
With his massive muscle pumps
'Till Buster Douglas knocked him flat.

With a chip upon his shoulder
And a glare a growin' colder he crippled
His foes in a round.

Now his very unpleasing
Taunting and teasing
Sends him up just like a clown.

Fights half-assed long shots
Begging for a loser's pot,
Motorists and
Siphons his fans

And this face-dot crackpot is
Backed into a money knot with a
Jockstrap in his hand

So this old sot with
Ring rot looking for a
Fighting spot can't get a
License at the Sands

And a blood clot spewing
Snot said Tyson took a
Free shot--take the mug shot
Cuffs on his hands.


And you can call him Violent Mike,
He cuts loose with abuse,
'Cause he's forgotten how to fight
Call him Violent Mike
He went down and he never got right
He'll never make it through the ninth.

His overgrown microphone para-
sitic Sharpton clone promoter
who eyes a feast.

He thinks re-hone the money
Tone hit him for a friendly loan
Cause that's where he expects it

And some cell phone/bad cologne
Was standin' in his corner
watching the ring
Girl's ass

And some cable-grown overblown
Was casting for 'The Twilight
Zone' offerin' him
One more chance.


Some innocent sister
Said he couldn't resist her
Told him her room—a mistake

Judge said 'You pushed yourself sonny,
A bit too strong so
You'll do some time in the pen for rape.'

So the manly art blowhard was checkin'
Out the match-up chart to see if
It was safe outside
And a boxer who was burly came when
His release came early and asked him
If he wanted to fight.

Oh, his fans would marvel
That he had no fear so he
Fought the cavalier

Mike was scarred and
Hitting hard, but Evander was ahead on the
Judges' cards
So Mike bit off
Hollyfield's ear.

You can call him Violent Mike
He cuts loose with abuse
'Cause he's forgotten how to fight
Call him Violent Mike...

Don King always told him,
"In my eyes you're a son"
But Don King
Just wants his money...
