It was more than just any old Friday night fight
With your mean left hook and my roundhouse right
We were both goin' for the heavyweight crown
T-K-O in the very first round

Thought you were gettin' the best of me
Floatin' like a butterfly, stingin' like a bee
Thought a good fight would get it out of our system
But we walked away with a split decision

Well, when we first met, you were a real knockout
I was head over heels, I was down for the count
But gettin' along got harder and harder
'Til we were nothin' more than sparrin' partners

I did my best to roll with the punches
You wore me out with fakin' and a-duckin'
Almost put me outta commission
But we walked away with a split decision

Split decision
Split decision
Everybody lose and nobody winnin'
Just too tough, I had enough
Nobody oughta hafta fight for love
We took a split decision

I did my best to roll with the punches
You wore me out with fakin' and a-duckin'
Almost put me outta commission
But we walked away with a split decision

Split decision
Split decision
Everybody lose and nobody winnin'
Just too tough, I had enough
Nobody oughta hafta fight for love

Split decision
Split decision
Everybody lose and nobody winnin'
Just too tough, I had enough
Nobody oughta hafta fight for love
We took a split decision

Split decision
Whoa baby
