Another New York Knockout

Words & Music by John Allee

 

She’s just another New York knockout

You’d better treat her with kid gloves

She’ll have you dangling on the ropes there

You’ll only get so far and then

 

It’ll hurt when you drop

It’ll hurt when you drop

Yes it hurts when you drop

Don’t it hurt when you drop?

 

She’s undisputed, undefeated

You’re at the bottom of the card

Decked out in silver threads and diamonds

She’s got the muscle and the crowd

 

And it hurts when you drop

It hurts when you drop

Yes it hurts when you drop

Don’t it hurt when you drop?

 

And when she’s got you down you think your number’s finally up

Your world’s a blur, you’re going blind

You never were the comeback kind

You thought you had a match, a chance to show a little spine

Then she moved in and feinted right

An easy win, a nasty fight

 

She gets a slew of new contenders

You lose the title and the ring

She keeps the city and her fan base

You get the hell out of this town

 

And it hurts when you drop

It hurts when you drop

Yes it hurts when you drop

Like a bitch when you drop

It hurts when you … drop
