KID GLOVES
Fresh Evidence - 1990

Hit me...

They sprung me out of Quentin,
I'm back on the mob's payroll.
They can buy my body,
Sure they can't buy my soul.

I'm working out of Stockton,
I'm weighing in at two-o one.
But there's a man in the front row,
Sent down from the mob with a gun.

For `Kid` Gloves, I'm back on the street.
`Kid` Gloves, the master to beat.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but dive.
   
Well, they bought me out of Quentin,
They've gone and placed their bets.
I've got to throw the fight,
Just to save my neck.

Saying `yes` to the set-up,
Made me feel so cheap.
But the street felt good,
Only got myself to beat.

Oh....
`Kid` Gloves, I'm fast on my feet,
`Kid` Gloves, the master to beat.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but cry.

`Kid` Gloves, I'm back in the ring.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll fight anything.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but dive.

Yeahhhh...woooo....
   
A deal is a deal,
But you know you just can't win.
But the mob ought to know,
My conscience is wearing thin.

They sprung me out of Quentin,
I'm back on the mob's payroll.
They can buy my body,
Sure they can't buy my soul.

I'm working out of Stockton,
I'm weighing in at two-o one.
There's a man in the front row,
Baby bring him down, he's got the gun.

Yeahhh....
   
`Kid` Gloves, I'm back on the ring.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll fight anything.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but dive.

`Kid` Gloves, I'm back on the street.
`Kid` Gloves, the master to beat.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but cry.

Yeah....

Well, they burned me out of Quentin
They've gone and placed their bets.
I've got to throw the fight,
Just to save my neck.

Saying `yes` to the set-up,
Made me feel so cheap.
But the street felt so good,
Only got myself to beat.
   
`Kid` Gloves, I'm back on the street,
`Kid` Gloves, the master to beat.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but dive.

`Kid` Gloves, I'm fast on my feet.
`Kid` Gloves, the master to beat.
`Kid` Gloves, I'll do anything but dive.

Yeah...

Yeahhh....
