    The Raging Bull

    A salute to the passing of a boxing legend.  Neutral

    Quote from the movie, Raging Bull...

    I remember those cheers
    They still ring in my ears
    And for years they'll remain in my thoughts.
    Cuz one night I took off my robe
    And what'd I do?
    I forgot to wear shorts.
    I recall every fall, every hook, every jab;
    The worst way a guy could get rid of his flab.
    As you know, my life wasn't drab...
    Though I'd rather hear you cheer,
    When I delve into Shakespeare.
    "A Horse, a Horse, my Kingdom for a Horse,"
    I haven't had a winner in six months.
    I know I'm no Olivier
    But if he fought Sugar Ray,
    He would say
    That the thing ain't the ring,
    It's the play.
    So gimme a stage
    Where this bull here can rage.
    And though I can fight,
    I'd much rather recite
    That's entertainment!
    That's entertainment..
