'Pon yonder hills of Bernalillo

Did a mighty legend grow

A head that shines like blarney stone

A fist that earned his heft a throne,

 

[Irish jig cranks up] 

Where the Lobos howl

Does a man decree

That recruits can't drive

With a lofty BAC

 

And does drive down the name of our hero to be 

THE MIGHTY FIST OF MIKE LOCKSLEY

 

Mike Locksley came to Albuquerque

Said recruiting was tied to secretaries

Got a lawsuit filed and settlement feeeee....

PAID BY THE FIST OF MIKE LOCKSLEY

DIDDLE HI DIDDLE HI DIDDLE HI DIDDLE HI 

ALL PAID BY THE FIST OF MIKE LOCKSLEY

 

With a left and a right oh the fighting he made

With reporters and coaches and fans he did rage

But only employees felt the sweet taste...

OF THE TASTY FIST OF MIKE LOCKSLEY

OH THE KNUCKLES SO TASTY OF LOCKSLEY

 

DIDDLE HI DIDDLE HO DIDDLE HEY DIDDLE HIX

WHAT THE HELL RHYMES WITH TWO AND TWENTY-SIX

A HEFTY BUYOUT AND A SATCHEL FULL OF DICKS

THAT'S WHAT YOU GOT FROM MIKE LOCKSLEY

FROM THE MIGHTY FIST OF MIKE LOCKSLEY

 

With a PUNCH and a PUNCH and a KICK and his mates 

Did Mike Locksley two years spend in pursuit of the great

Oh for two 'gainst New Mexico Staaaaaaate
