Tips from Iron Man

Listen!

Slip right, then jab.

Follow up, keep it straight!

Remember!

Cover yourself!

Don't let him land another!

He's big, too big!

His hands are like stones!

He's quick, too quick!

He's bouncing like a rabbit!

So what, then? Huh?

So what if you're afraid?

So what your knees are buckling?

So what you're hands are shaking?

So what your heart is hammering?!

You can do it! Yes, you can!

He may be quick, but you are strong!

He may be stone, but you're of iron!

You may be scared, but so is he!

So, buddy all you have to do...

Just slip right, and land that jab!
