Blown full of holes, twisted out of gear and kicked
in the slats there isn't any dope to work with today.
There is nothing left now but two ball clubs fighting
blindly, madly for the world's championship.
All footwork is gone, headwork has vanished and
the contestants now are face to face, attempting to
pound out each other's brains. There is nothing left
but wallop. The first club that begins plajnng reg

neither settles down, the old haymaker may decide
