Well, I'd rather switch than fight anytime
There's a little yellow streak runnin' up this back of mine
When it's time who's a-gonna hold him tight
I'm a lover not a fighter and I'd rather a-switch than fight.

Well, I was out with a red head last night
Her boy friend caused a scene that was a sight
Then he bowed about me and I took flight
There's a whole lot more of them pretty girls
And I rather switch than fight.

Yeah, I'd rather switch than fight anytime
There's a little yellow streak runnin' up this back of mine
When it's time who's a-gonna hold him tight
I'm a lover not a fighter and I'd rather switch than fight.

--- Instrumental ---

Now my first wife was a lovely sight to view
But fuss and fight was all she cared to do
When she reached forty-four, well, I shoved her out the door
And I got me a couple that were twenty-two.

So, I'd rather switch than fight anytime
There's a little yellow streak runnin' up this back of mine
When it's time who's a-gonna hold him tight
I'm a lover not a fighter and I'd rather switch than fight...
