Intro :     
 
 
  Uptown   got it's   hustlers
The bowery   got it's   bums
42nd Street got   Big Jim   Walker
He's a pool-shooting   son of a   gun
Yeah, he   big and dumb as a man can come
But he   stronger than a   country   hoss
And when the   bad folks all get tog  ether at night
You know they   all call big Jim "  Boss", just because
And they   say
 
 
You don't   tug on   Superman's   cape
You don't   spit   into the   wind
You don't   pull the mask off that   old Lone Ranger
And you   don't mess a  round with   Jim
 
 
Well outta   south Ala  bama came a   country boy
He say I'm looking for a   man named   Jim
I am a   pool-shooting   boy
My name   Willie Mc  Coy
But down home they   call me   Slim
Yeah I'm   looking for the king of 42nd Street
He driving a   drop top Cadil  lac
Last week he   took all my money
And it   may sound funny
But I   come to get my   money   back
And everybody   say Jack don't you know
 
 
You don't   tug on   Superman's   cape
You don't   spit   into the   wind
You don't   pull the mask off that   old Lone Ranger
And you   don't mess a  round with   Jim
 
 
Well a   hush fell   over the   pool room
Jimmy come bopping in   off the   street
And when the   cutting were   done
The only   part that wasn't   bloody
Was the   soles of the big man's   feet
Yeah he were   cut in bout a hundred places
And he were   shot in a couple   more
And you   better believe
They sung a   different kind of   story
When big   Jim hit the   floor,  now they   say
 
 
You don't   tug on   Superman's   cape
You don't   spit   into the   wind
You don't   pull the mask off that   old Lone Ranger
And you   don't mess a  round with   Slim
 
 
Yeah, big Jim got his hat
Find out where it's at
And it's not hustling people strange to you
Even if you do got a two-piece custom-made pool cue
 
 
You don't   tug on   Superman's   cape
You don't   spit   into the   wind
You don't   pull the mask off that   old Lone Ranger
And you   don't mess a  round with   Slim
