Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon From Youngstown, Ohio, Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini A lightweight contender, like father like son He fought for the title with Frias in Vegas And he put him away in round number one Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon When Alexis Arguello gave Boom Boom a beating Seven weeks later he was back in the ring Some have the speed and the right combinations If you can't take the punches it don't mean a thing Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon When they asked him who was responsible For the death of Du Koo Kim He said, "Someone should have stopped the fight, and told me it was him." They made hypocrite judgments after the fact But the name of the game is be hit and hit back Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon Hurry home early - hurry on home Boom Boom Mancini's fighting Bobby Chacon
