Cassius Clay's Prediction

       Clay comes out to meet Liston, and Liston starts to retreat
       If Liston goes back any further he'll end up in a ringside seat.
       Clay swings with a left, Clay swings with a right.
       Look at young Cassius carry the fight.

       Liston keeps backing but there's not enough room.
       It's a matter of time, and there!  Clay lowers the boom.
       Now Clay swings with a right what a beautiful swing.
       And the punch rises the Bear clear out of the ring.

       Liston is still rising and the ref wears a frown
       for he can't start counting till Sonny comes down.
       Now Liston disappears from view the crowd's getting frantic
       but our radar station's picked him up over the Atlantic.

       Who would have thought when they came to the fight
       that they'd witness the launching of a human satellite?
