She's a pillar by the day, a fire by the night She's a famous architect, like Frank Lloyd Wright When it comes to tightrope walkin', she's world renowned
Her elegance and charm are worthy of praise And I heard she used to throw for the Oakland A's She works two hundred and sixty eight hours a week, I've yet to meet her match
A marvel of modern science She's a natural born pioneer I can't make up my mind, Should I put her on display or hide her?
I'm gonna be her prize fighter I know that she's out of my league I'm gonna be her prize fighter My uniform has been decreed
She's a daughter of the gods, got a lot of clout If she's ever in a bind, I'll get her out And sometimes I have these nightmares, in the middle of the day Where a hay-makin' gypsy steals her away
There ain't no doubt about it (no doubt about it) I'm a slave to her shade of love One day her majesty the Queen, unprovoked and unforeseen She's gonna fly her over to England, put that sword on her shoulder, And knight her!
I'm gonna be her prize fighter No label's gonna change where she's from I'm gonna be her prize fighter And I'm dancin' to the beat of her drum
She's always on my side, rich or poor And she's with me all the way to the Golden Door My lioness, my pièce de résistance My only way
I'm gonna drive me an El Dorado The color of her marbly eyes With twin bullet tail lights And plates that we desire
I'm gonna be her prize fighter Though the weather may be foul I'm gonna be her prize fighter Though the wind and the wolves may howl
(Prize fighter) Through the sunshine, through the rain I'm gonna be her prize fighter Over and over again
