Patriotic lyrics

by

Stephen Flaherty


[Apollo]
Listen up, people
Apollo is having a vision!

I see a life size lady liberty
You're digging it?

[Ensemble]
We're digging it

[Apollo]
I see an Uncle Sam, and he's black like me!
Are you digging it?

[Jergens, spoken]
I'm.. digging it?

[Apollo]
We find a white local fighter and I'll be all his
If that ain't American, what is?
Red white and blue and doin' this
Patriotic! (Patriotic!)

I see Apollo shirts and baseball caps
You digging it?

[Ensemble]
We're digging it

[Apollo]
And every bumper sticker's for the hometown saps
Are you digging it?

[Ensemble]
Digging it!

[Apollo]
I'm seein' star-spangled banners and my girls in tights
Sequins and fireworks and hot lights!
A first in the history of fights
Patriotic (patriotic)

This fight should've put me right up at the best
Joe Louis and Fraisеr and all of the rest
I ain't gettin' youngеr, ain't got the time
To fight some bum who's past his prime
But we got the venue

[Manager]
We got the bout

[Apollo and Ensemble]
And your damned opponent is chickenin' out
Fight is on no matter what

[Apollo ]
Now, who in the hell in Philly do we got?

[Manager]
Billy Snow?

[Apollo]
Rhymes with no!
Big Chuck Krull?

[Manager]
Too old, too dull

[Jergens]
Dipper Riley’s ideal

[Apollo]
Dipper? Get real!
But here we got a name with some poster appeal
"The Italian stallion!"
[Apollo and Ensemble]
Wrap it in a flag, make the people scream!
Someone'll be gettin' the American dream

[Apollo]
Mister down 'n out versus mister slick!

[Apollo and Ensemble]
It's gonna be patriotic!

[Apollo]
I didn't get where I got to by being dumb

[Ensemble]
Rocky Balboa

[Apollo]
Here I come!
That's patriotic (patriotic)
Ooh, patriotic (patriotic)

[Apollo, spoken]
Apollo Creed meets the Italian stallion!
sh*t, sounds like a damn monster movie

[Ensemble]
Uh-huh
