DREAMERS, LOVERS, OUTLAWS: The Listening Room

Champion of Love (Click for Lyrics)

(Siobhan Quinn and Michael Bowers)

Michael Bowers (ASCAP)
Samuel Johnson said that second marriages are the triumph of hope over experience. In writing this song, it has become quite evident that I have a lot of both....laugh if you must (I know I must), but I am the Champion of Love!
I ain’t ever gonna be no Muhammad Ali
That’s just not in the cards
See I sting like a butterfly and I float like a bee
And I fall pretty hard
My fists go flailing all over the place
And I’m more than likely to lead with my face

I may hit the canvas but I know I will never stay down
When the bell rings I’ll answer the call for the next round
Cause there is one title I will always be worthy of
I am the undisputed champion of love

You know the training is tough
And the hours they’re long
I’ve lifted all that weight
When I step in the ring man
I feel really strong
And then I hesitate
Before I know it my back’s on the rope
And the crowd is shouting--"That guy's such a dope!"

I may hit the canvas but I know I will never stay down
When the bell rings I’ll answer the call for the next round
Cause there is one title I will always be worthy of
I am the undisputed champion of love

BRIDGE: Born to be a lover not a fighter
I promise I’m a kisser not a biter
I know that they would crown me king
If I could just stay in the ring

I ain’t ever gonna be no Muhammad Ali
That’s just not in the cards
See I sting like a butterfly and I float like a bee
And I fall pretty hard
My fists go flailing all over the place
And I’m more than likely to lead with my face

I may hit the canvas but I know I will never stay down
When the bell rings I’ll answer the call for the next round
Cause there is one title I will always be worthy of
I am the undisputed champion of love
