Box me a tune - George Dixon. (Poetry).

Box me a tune - George Dixon

Box me a tune, "Little Chocolate"
come box me a boxer's tune
So box me a hook;
then box me a jab;
now box me a hook-off-of-a-jab.
Go biff go bam, go buff, go bam,
go biff-bam-bam-bam!

Box me a tune, "Little Chocolate"
come box me a fighter's tune.
So box me a lead;
the box me a feint;
now box me a lead-off-of-a-feint.
Go biff, go bam, go biff, go bam,
go biff-bam-biff-bam-bam!

Box me a tune, "Little Chocolate"
come box me a fistic tune.
So box me a cross;
then box me a slip;
now box me a cross-off-of-a-slip.
Go biff, go bam, go biff, go bam,
go biff-bam-biff-bam-bam!

Box me a tune, "Little Chocolate"
come box me a Queensbury tune.
So box me a counter;
then box me a block;
now box me a counter-off-of-a-block.
Go biff, go bam, go biff, go bam,
go biff-bam-biff-bam-bam!
