Monkey and the underdog by David Crosby, Craig Doerge

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."

Been fightin'...fightin'
fightin' just to stay alive
I've been fightin'...fightin'
Fightin' to get from
Four o'clock to five.

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 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'...fightin'
Fightin' to get from
Four o'clock to five.

Now, he's sneaky
and he'll smile
Right at you, pretend
to like 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 goo, no
But when his eyes met mine
and he said
"I'll kick his ass."
and I knew right then he would

I've been fightin'
I've been fightin'
Fightin' just to stay alive
I've been fightin'...fightin'
Fightin' to get from
Four o'clock to five.

Well now I don't want
To bore you.
With a bunch of dialogue.
It's not how much dog
is in the fight
It's how much fight
is in the 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.

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.

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.
