I'm Sold (The Acting in the Ring Never Gets Old) [Brutus Beefcake]

It's always interesting how the plot from the show and real life entangles. If someone gets injured, plans and storylines change out of necessity. That was the theme I had in mind while writing the chorus. Please enjoy the lyrics; Brutus is a legendary athlete.

Brutus "the Barber" Beefcake. Wasn't he great?
In a parasailing accident broke his face.
Put him outta action while he wore a nose brace.
Skull held together by a few metal plates.

When he was in the Federation, blew my mind!
Gimmick hilarious every single time.
Personality played out to a T.
Opponent down on the mat, 1, 2, 3.

Bust out the clippers, time for a hair cut.
If you cherish you mane, well, you're outta luck.
Brutus, bust out the scissors! Hack it up!
When I'm on my couch, you know I laugh it up.

When I'm there live, you know I clap and jump.
During Brutus's entrance I'm pumped.
Clippers bigger than his forearm take a hunk
of DNA from above your brain.

Take at least 6 months to grow back the old way.
Friends point and laugh while you have to explain:
"I was in a match with Hogan's best friend.
My back was on the mat in the end."

No heavyweight gold; still he's out of control.
Scheduled to win the Intercontinental title.
At SummerSlam two times in the storylines.
Injury unfortunately put a stop to that.

Warrior and Von Erich got the chance.
Both walked away with gold. Watch the story unfold.
The plot from the show and real life entangled.
Wrestling's pure entertainment. I'm sold.

Wrestling's pure entertainment. I'm sold.
Real life events influence how the story molds.
Ropes bounce, referee's count's controlled.
A great match is a tale waiting to be told.
The words are spoken with the moves and the holds.
The momentum and the Irish whip throws.
The juice that flows and the potato blows.
The acting in the ring never gets old.

...2 years after the shattered face,
he hosted the Barber Shop. Those classic tapes
need to be in my collection. Where can I purchase them?
A merchant with an eye for a quality film

for my entertainment. I can't explain it.
Brutus's gimmick has no replacement.
One of a kind; stand behind my statement.
Classic bout no matter who he's facin'.

When he wins? Unique ending. Can't replace it.
Early on, he was Hogan's bro. Face it.
His roots in the business? I invite you to trace it.
Learn a few things you didn't know about wrestling.

The best thing I noticed, it was interesting.
In life, you should learn about everything.
Including feuding with Perfect's streak at steak.
Ended in '90 by Brutus Beefcake.

WrestleMania 9 was truly one of a kind.
Brutus back in action with a mask, blew my mind!
Hogan at his side; they lost from a DQ,
but I can bet if ya stepped in the ring, they'd beat you.

Pulverize ya forehead, it will release juice.
Your adrenaline pumps when ya blood seeps loose.
The next day, you sport an incredible bruise
and a gash near ya hairline, hidden from view. The only other member of the One Warrior Nation.
Brother Bruti, Monsoon's connotation.
I give him my utmost respect!
A near fatal face shatter. 2 years later? Back on the mat.

Clippers bigger than his forearm take a hunk
of DNA from above your brain.
Take at least 6 months to grow back the old way.

Brutus the Barber Beefcake. Wasn't he great?
Skilled wrestler; rarely made a mistake.
Hogan knows best when it comes to training.
Koloff also taught Brutus.

Explaining how to take a bump clean. Lift up ya head!
Land ya feet on the ground for the max force spread.
Protect your neck at all times.
During a piledriver make sure you're cradled secure.
