Bo Lion and Donkey arguing
The two of them, well who is really king
Bo Lion and Donkey arguing
Between the two of them, who is really king. Hmmm
Well, the argument reach a height
The committee say, "Let them fight."
All but Monkey backing lion
The whole animal kingdom in confusion.

Hear they bawling...

[Beat the man, Lion, buss he head!]
All them animals gone crazy
[Beat the man, Lion, buss he head!]
Even the referee, he and all against Donkey, he bawling
[Beat the man, Lion, buss he head!]
A Donkey is an ass and he have no brain
Lion bite away Donkey tail and had the poor ass in pain.

Lion know Donkey ent easy
So he decide to fight carefully
But the way the crowd encouraging
He get brave and he start to swing. Hmm
A left and a right to head... Woop too!
Upper cut, I say Donkey dead
Donkey tumble down on the floor
Elephant, Goat and Tiger began to roar.

Hear they bawling...

[Lick him down, Lion, lick him down!]
Take yuh paws and rip 'way he belly
[Lick him down, Lion, lick him down!]
Only Monkey crying for Donkey
[Lick him down, Lion, lick him down!]
This time, Lion in a temper only sharing blows
Rip away all of Donkey clothes
And had the whole ass exposed. Ey!

Monkey bawl, "Ey man, ring the bell."
Crapaud say, "For what? Go to hell."
"Well, all right use the secret weapon
And teach a lesson to this damn Lion.
Referee Mr. Unicorn say, "It's a forgone conclusion.
Time to ring the bell really pass,

But a miracle couldn't save your partner ass.

[Knock him out, Lion, knock him out!]
Donkey getting tired and backing
[Knock him out, Lion, knock him out!]
Lion fouling but the referee ent warning
[Knock him out, Lion, knock him out!]
Lion take a stool and really knock him down
Dog and all start to laugh at this
Big naked ass on the ground.

Hear they singing...

In a clinch, Donkey kiss Lion
Calling him a macomere man
Lion get so vex he change up he style
No more bobbing and weaving, he fighting wild
When he had Donkey at arm's length
He pelt a bolo with all his strength
Donkey weave and that was the case
Lion spin, Donkey grab him around he waist.

Hear the referee...

[That is foul, Donkey, that is foul]
Donkey tell the referee, "Yes, I know."
[That is foul, Donkey, that is foul]
"Ho-ho. Maybe, but this is one fowl that could crow!"
[Break, I say, Donkey, break, I say]
Monkey say, "I don't know what is wrong with you.
Wey de hell you talking 'bout, Break, break, break...

And is that he trying to do?
