Interested in writing for the stage? See my profile. I can write to your melody if I have the sheet music and I'm sorry I might need you singing to lyrics like "do re me" to the score. But here is a lyric from a scene where one guy is advising the 2nd guy on what to do now that the second guy is in a headlock held by the 2nd guy's financee. These things happen all the time in musicals, right? Frank John.

Tap Out Already!

By Frank John © 2009, 2019





Lotsa guys go for the fight
It’s the most natural thing to do
Lotsa guys never ever win a fight
And man, is that the case for you!

Tap Out!
Cause you’re losing.
You tap twice
(Tap-tap, tap-tap)
Loud as
You can.
Hanging on
Is way hard-
The other side
Got smart
And too far
Inside your guard.

Tap out!
(Tap-tap, tap-tap)
You gave up
Leverage.
You stand bad
Everywhere.
Tap Out!
(Tap-tap, tap-tap)
You’re blue
And your
Enemy doesn’t care.
The arm bar
Pulls your joint
Apart.
Worse
I think
That choke hold
Is gonna reach
Your heart.



It takes stones to go in scared
War or love, let the man choose!
Nuggets of steel to go in unprepared.
Trying is golden, except when you lose.

(Tap-tap, tap-tap)
(Tap-tap, tap-tap)

Finally
Your pulse
Feels thready.
And vision
Gets dark
Unsteady.
(Tap-tap, tap-tap)
Tap Out!
Tap Out!
Tap Out!
Tap Out Already!
