My ode to all the unsung heroes in the Indy Wrestling business, the referees.

lyrics

I am licensed by the state
and you may not think I am great
But I wear the stripes that means
I'm in charge
I'm not here to boost egos
or live large
And you may not agree with my calls
like my very close pin falls
but I saw the shoulder
I saw him kick out
i'm just doing my job
no need to shout

And I see you
with your hands around his throat
backed into the corner
on the ropes....

And I can see the look in your eyes
you're about to tell me I've got till five
welI know the fucking rules
and you are breaking them

I'm here to call it like a shoot
and to check inside your boots
for a weapon or two
maybe some brass knucks
or a roll of quarters
stuffed inside your trunks
and if your outside to long
I will count till the crack of dawn
but when I hit 10
that means you are fucked
or anyone else outside
doesn't matter who it was

and I see your foot
across his throat
even when your on your knees
when you say no

And I can see the look in your eyes
you're about to tell me I've got till five
welI know the fucking rules
and you are breaking them

we went to the same wrestling school
and we took car trips that would never end
and now suddenly since we're out here
please don't think that we're not friends

I don't agree with this black and white
but i love these vertical stripes
now i've taken my eye of the ball
everybody's in
this is mass choas
one out and one in
I know I'm not Tommy Young
Earl, Dave or the son
I just wanna let you know
I have done my best
My first name's not Kill
My first name is Chris

And I see you
with your hands around his throat
backed into the corner
on the ropes....

And I can see the look in your eyes
you're about to tell me I've got till five
welI know the fucking rules
and you are breaking them

And I can see the look in your eyes
you're about to tell me I've got till five
welI know the fucking rules
and you are breaking them

Oh I bet this is no surprise
you've got till the count of 5
cause i know the fucking rules
and you have broken them

Don't argue with me this time
or you'll get a big fat fine
about all the rules
that you have broken

this may be the last time
i'll be counting to 5
about the rule
and you breaking them

And I can see the look in your eyes
you're about to tell me I've got till five
welI know the fucking rules
and you are breaking them
