The Hi-Lifes - I'm Gonna Fight (1965)

There’s little information to be found about this short-lived group. What is known is that they were one of many second-rate groups to appear on the same album together, Soundsville (1965), hoping to make a name for themselves.

Lou Reed, later of The Velvet Underground and solo fame, appears as a co-writer for this song (and every other song on the album) as well as playing lead guitar.

Lyrics:

You want my girl
But I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Fight for her love
The love that I need
Oh, I won't let her go

You want her bad
But I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
She won't get hurt
Hurt from the lies
The lies I know you tell her

If I thought that you would treat her good
I wouldn’t stand in your way
But I know the kind of guy you are
So, buddy, stay away
Stay away

I love that girl
So I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
I won't let some fool
Fool with my girl
Oh, you won't break her heart

I love that girl so much
So much that I won't let anyone make her cry
I'm gonna fight
I'm gonna fight
I'm gonna fight

Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight
Yeah, I'm gonna fight…
