Heavyweight Champion Of The World Lyrics - Reverend Horton Heat

Now that she's older 

As the embers of romance fade to mortgages and leccy bills 

Being comfortable and that 

Nobody told her that she'd ever reach the stage 

Where her husband bored or her or she lied about her age 

 

He's compromising 

At least he's got a job for life 

Get born, get school, get job, get car 

Pay tax and find a wife 

And on that note the end can't come too soon 

If you're not living on the edge you take up too much room 

 

I could've been a contender 

I could've been a someone 

Caught up in the rat race 

And feeling like a no one 

Could've been me in the papers 

With the money and the girls 

I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world 

 

At school he used to dream about being Bruce Lee 

But the need for chops in the Manor Top 

Ain't all that great you see 

And so he gave up 

On his black belt and first Dan 

As near as he got to China 

Was a week in Camber sands 

 

I could've been a contender 

I could've been a someone 

Caught up in the rat race 

And feeling like a no one 

Could've been me in the papers 

With the money and the girls 

I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world 

 

I could've been a contender 

I could've been a someone 

Caught up in the rat race 

And feeling like a no one 

Could've been me in the papers 

With the money and the girls 

I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world 

 

It's boring, it's boring 

It might put you to sleep 

As the same old routine repeating week after week 

And you work hard, I work harder 

You're told that you must 

And you must earn a living 

You must earn a crust 

 

And be like everybody else 

Be like everybody else 

Be like everybody else 

Just be like everybody else 

Be like everybody else 

Just be like everybody else 

Be like everybody else 

Just be like everybody else 

 

Be like everybody else 

Just be like everybody else 

Be like everybody else 

Just be like everybody else 

 

Be like everybody else 

Just be like everybody else 

Be like everybody else 

I'm not like everybody else 

 

I could've been a contender 

I could've been a someone 

Caught up in the rat race 

And feeling like a no one 

Could've been me in the papers 

With the money and the girls 

I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world 

 

I could've been a contender 

I could've been a someone 

Caught up in the rat race 

And feeling like a no one 

Could've been me in the papers 

With the money and the girls 

I could've been the heavyweight champion of the world
