Lyrics

  • WELL, THEY SPRUNG ME OUT OF QUENTIN
  • I’M BACK ON THE MOB’S PAYROLL
  • THEY CAN BUY MY BODY,
  • SURE CAN’T BUY MY SOUL
  • I’M WORKING OUT OF STOCKTON
  • I’M WEIGHING IN AT TWO-O-ONE
  • BUT THERE’S A MAN IN THE FRONT ROW
  • SENT DOWN FROM THE MOB WITH A GUN
  • FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK ON THE STREET
  • KID GLOVES, THE MASTER TO BEAT
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT DIVE
  • WELL, THEY BOUGHT ME OUT OF QUENTIN
  • THEY’VE GONE AND PLACED THEIR BETS
  • I’VE GOT TO THROW THE FIGHT
  • JUST TO SAVE MY NECK
  • SAYING ‘YES’ TO THE SET-UP
  • MADE ME FEEL SO CHEAP
  • BUT THE STREET FELT GOOD
  • NOW I’VE ONLY GOT MYSELF TO BEAT
  • A DEAL IS A DEAL
  • BUT YOU KNOW YOU JUST CAN’T WIN
  • THE MOB OUGHT TO KNOW
  • MY CONSCIENCE IS WEARING THIN
  • FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK ON THE STREET
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL FIGHT ANYTHING
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT DIVE
  • FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK ON THE STREET
  • KID GLOVES, THE MASTER TO BEAT
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT CRY
  • FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK ON THE STREET
  • KID GLOVES, THE MASTER TO BEAT
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT CRY
  • FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK IN THE RING
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL FIGHT ANYTHING
  • KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT DIVE
    WELL, THEY BOUGHT ME OUT OF QUENTIN THEY’VE GONE AND PLACED THEIR BETS I’VE GOT TO THROW THE FIGHT JUST TO SAVE MY NECK SAYING ‘YES’ TO THE SET-UP MADE ME FEEL SO CHEAP BUT THE STREET FELT GOOD NOW I’VE ONLY GOT MYSELF TO BEAT
    FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK ON THE STREET KID GLOVES, THE MASTER TO BEAT KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT DIVE
    FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK IN THE RING KID GLOVES, I’LL FIGHT ANYTHING KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT CRY
    FOR KID GLOVES, KID GLOVES, I’M BACK ON MY FEET KID GLOVES, THE MASTER TO BEAT KID GLOVES, I’LL DO ANYTHING BUT DIVE
