Boom Boom Mancini Lyrics - Warren Zevon

Review The Song (2)



Written By Warren Zevon
C. 1987 Zevon Music/BMI

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

Fantastic song . . . | Reviewer: TekBoi | 11/14/2007

Fantastic song dedicated to the world champion.


Also, Ray seems like a nice person who, till
this day, is know to regret the outcome of
the Duk Koo Kim fight.
"But the name of the game, Is be hit and hit back" . . .

i miss you ray | Reviewer: laura albright | 8/8/2007

I graduated in 1982 from Brookfield and attended YSU for 5 years. You were a big part of that life. I remember you coming to the VIP and Tony's with all of your peeps (oh so impressive) and I also rode in your car at one time with one of my boyfriends in 83 (although you would be unaware of that)!

Anyway, I went through your bio with my daughter and she was amazed that such a celebrity lived so close by. Still love all of your work.

I now work for a counseling agency for adolescents and I think you would do well to speak at one of our all-staff meetings. I will look into this with my superiors.

So happy that I can be in touch with you. Take good care and get in touch if you can-- even though I'm sure you are very busy.

Laura Albright
