Knock Outs Drops A Head


Keeping it up is tough.
And it's not easy.
Many are found wearing their frowns.

Uppercuts are thrown.
And knock outs,
Drops a head.

Wild punches hit in those puckers,
Crunch.
Leaving heaps together lumped.

Keeping it up,
Is tough.
When lumped,
Together.

Keeping it up,
Is tough.
And rough...
When lumped together.

Keeping it up,
Is tough...
When uppercuts are thrown.
And knock outs drops a head.

Keeping it up,
Is tough!
And isn't easy.
