STAN' UP AN' FIGHT (TOREADOR SONG) From the Film: Carmen Jones - 1954 (Lyrics by: Oscar Hammerstein II / Music by: Georges Bizet) Joe Adams Thanks a lot! I'm sure glad to be, To be where I c'n see So many friends o' mine. How've I been doin'? How've I been doin'? If you really wanta know de truth, I'm doin' fine! Seventeen Decisions in a row, An' only five on points; De res' was all K.O.~ Jackson an' Johnson, Murphy an' Bronson, One by one dey come, An' one by one to dreamland dey go. How's it done? You ask me, how's it done? I got a trainer man Who taught me all I need to know. Sure feels good to have him in my corner, Hear his voice a-whisp'rin' low: "Big boy, remember, You mus' remember... Stan' up an' fight until you hear de bell, Stan' toe to toe, Trade blow fer blow, Keep punchin' till you make yer punches tell, Show dat crowd watcher know! Until you hear dat bell, Dat final bell, Stan' up an' fight like hell!" When you fight Out in de open air, In a patch o' light De ring looks small an' white. Out in de blackness, Out in de blackness, You c'n feel a hun'erd thousan' eyes Fillin' de night. Cigarettes Are blinkin' in de dark, An' makin' polka dots Aroun' de baseball park, People are quiet~ Den dere's a riot! Someone t'rows a punch An' plants it right smack on de mark... Somebody's hurt, You kinda think it's you. You hang across de ropes~ Da's all you want to do. Den you look aroun' an' see your trainer's eyes, Beggin' you to see it through, Dey say, "Remember, Big Boy, remeber~ Stan' up an' fight until you hear de bell, Stan' toe to toe, Trade blow fer blow, Keep punchin' till you make yer punches tell, Show dat crowd watcher know! Until you hear dat bell, Dat final bell, Stan, up an' fight like hell!" (Contributed by Carlene Bogle)
