Boom Boom Mancini Lyrics

by Warren Zevon

Hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon
Hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon

From Youngstown, Ohio, Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini
A lightweight contender, like father like son
He fought for the title with Frias in Vegas
And he put him away in round number one

So hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon
Hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon

When Alexis Arguello gave Boom Boom a beating
Seven weeks later, he was back in the ring
Some have the speed and the right combinations
If you can't take the punches, it don't mean a thing

So hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon
Hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon

When they asked him who was responsible
For the death of Du Koo Kim
He said, "Some one should have stopped the fight
And told me, it was him"

They made hypocrite judgements after the fact
But the name of the game is, be hit and hit back

So hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon
Hurry home early, hurry on home
Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon
