Urban legend and American folklore
Tells of a man who was one of a kind
A sure legend with a flair for fashion
Prone to violence at any time

A legendary hooligan, with a thirst for blood
And a taste for booze
This brave and daring brutal soul
He lived and fought by his own rules

Shake the hand that shook the world

Shoe shine boy, to champion
He'd fought and beaten many foes
His calling card was a kick to the groin
And a broken bottle to the bridge of the nose

Be he aimed to kill when he took to the ring
This Boston strong boy, loved to fight
On more than one occasion
A bout was stopped to save an opponent's life

Shake the hand that shook the world
For blood and whiskey with his bare knuckled fist

With his fist, he shook the world
With his fist, he shook the world

Shake the hand that shook the world
For blood and whiskey with his bare knuckled fist
Shake the hand that shook the world
For blood and whiskey with his bare knuckled fist
