Eight ounce gloves now, it's title time
You can use your chosen tools and I'll choose mine
I'm afraid we've gone and laid it on the line
It's a risky business

In the garden-time to go
Show them crazies who's the one who runs the show
While they gamble in your corner for your robe
It's a risky business

And the best that you can do is buy some time
'Til they can find somebody better
It don't matter what they call you when you
Know you've been the best that you could be
Give 'em hell boy, while you can
Make them fight to take the title you defend
'Til they nail you with a double-cross again
It's a risky business
