monkey and the underdog lyrics

Artist: david crosby
Song: monkey and the underdog
Well, I went out for my evenin' stroll
All along the boulevard
It's familiar turf from the hills to the surf
I treat it like my front yard

Well, I right away ran into a girl I know
She said, "You gotta come with me tonight
The word is out that the underdog
And the monkey gonna finally fight"

I've been fightin', fightin'
Fightin' just to stay alive
And I've been fightin', fightin'
Fightin' to get from four o'clock to five

Well, now I'm not what you'd call a violent man
But the news brought a smile to my face
'Cause the underdog is a friend of mine
I'd just love to see him put that monkey in his place

You may think I'm crazy
The odds are against the dog, you understand
This monkey is as strong as a gorilla
He'd stretch a tire like a rubber band

But I've been fightin', fightin'
Fightin' just to stay alive
I've been fightin', oh, oh, fightin'
Fightin' to get from four o'clock to five

Now, he's sneaky and he'll smile on
Right at you, pretend to lick your boots
And all the while, he'd be thinking
How to rip your soul out by the roots

When we got there, my old underdog
He didn't really look too good, no
But his eyes met mine and he said, "I'll kick his ass"
I knew right then he would

Oh, been fightin', yeah, I've been fightin', yeah
Fightin' just to stay alive
I've been fightin', oh, oh, oh, oh, fightin'
Fightin' to get from four o'clock to five

Well, now I don't want to bore you
With a bunch of dialog
It's not how much dog is in the fight
It's how much fight is in my dog

And I've been fightin', oh, fightin'
Fightin' just to stay alive
I've been fightin', yeah, fightin'
Fightin' to get from four o'clock to five

Oh, fightin', oh, fightin', yeah
Fightin' just to stay alive
Fight, fightin', fightin'
Fightin' to get from four o'clock oh, oh, oh, oh

Fightin', oh, fightin'
Fightin' just to stay alive
I've been fightin', yeah, oh, fightin'
Fightin' to get from four o'clock to five
