It’s Saturday night
The fight is done
Can you tell me who has won?
I look at you
You look at me
And darling it’s plain to see
You’ll take my hand
We’ll free ourselves
Don’t you know it will be right
See I’ve only known
Careless love before

But the fighter
They say he’s strong
And we all know it won’t be long
Before he drives
His silver Cadillac
Straight off a cliff

But in the meantime
Everybody wants to be his friend
And in the down time
Ladies run around his bed
And in the meantime
Everybody wants to be his friend

Is it lady luck
Or just a skill
Surely it pays the bills
In the papers
He’s in the news
They’ll follow him to the noose
To the noose

But in the meantime
Everybody wants to be his friend
And in the down time
Ladies run around his bed
And in the meantime
Everybody wants to be his friend

Everybody wants 
Everybody wants the fighter
Everybody wants
The fighter

Everybody wants 
Everybody wants 
Everybody Everybody Everybody wants the fighter
