lyrics

Well, she's the heaviest hitter in the universe
She wears a champion's belt with a matching purse
Representin' Motor City, she's a sleek machine
And she can stomp a top contender into smithereens

I met her on the beach when she was all alone
Then she invited me back to her vacation home
Decided I should spend the night
Everything was goin' right
Until she turned around and put me in a headlock of love

I struggled for a minute and to my surprise
I found I couldn't break free though she was half my size
I must have tried out every move that there was in the book
Until she sapped out all my will with a disarming look
The room, it started fadin' to black
I knew there was no turnin' back
She's got me where she wants me and I ain't gonna tap

I'm in a headlock of love,
baby, that's why I bug
You got me where you want me,
I'm the man that you've been dreaming of
I'm in a headlock of love
She's a demon from above
And though it might sound crazy
no, I don't want her to leave me alone

Now, when I finally broke out of my blackout phase
I found I must have been asleep for a couple of days
I looked down at my finger and, oh man, what I seen
A purple hematoma and a wedding ring
At first i thought I wanted to run
But then another feelin' begun
My heavy hitting baby and me, we could sure have lots of fun


I'm in a headlock of love,
baby, that's why I bug
You got me where you want me,
I'm the man that you've been dreaming of
I'm in a headlock of love
She's a demon from above
And though it might sound crazy
no, I don't want her to leave me alone

Hit me hard with a left
Squeeze me, baby, 'til I'm outta breath
If you do, for all time
I'll be yours and you'll be mine

Well, it's been a long time since that fateful day
The bruises have healed, but the love remain


I'm in a headlock of love,
baby, that's why I bug
You got me where you want me,
I'm the man that you've been dreaming of
I'm in a headlock of love
She's a demon from above
And though it might sound crazy
no, I don't want her to leave me alone

'Cuz, baby, when you strike it,
You know I kinda like it
And ever since you hit it,
I never wanna quit it
So don't you keep me waitin'
Come over here and give me a shove
I'm in a..Headlock of Love

(Lyrics by Wes Tanenbaum)
