Those women sure were hard,
not one was left unscarred,
On the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight.

Well, have you heard the story
About Bulls-Eye Betty's fight,
At the Ladies Dart League tournament
Down at Lucky's Place that night?

Now, Bulls-Eye's team and Debbie's
Were both on double four,
When Bulls-Eye's dart hit off the wire
And stuck into the floor.

Now Doubles-Debbie thought it funny,
And started into laugh;
But, Bulls-Eye's sister, Susan,
Went and took offense to that.

She threw a dart at Debbie,
But it hit Big-Bertha Moore;
Now, pretty soon both teams,
Were fightin' on the floor.

On the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight,
Well, it was such an awful sight;
Those women sure were hard,
not one was left unscarred,
On the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight.

Bulls-Eye Betty threw a punch
At Doubles-Debbie Brown;
Now the punch missed Doubles-Debbie,
But it knocked her sister down.

Now the manager was horrified
At such a bloody sight;
So he had to call the Mounties,
To stop the Ladies Dart League fight.

Well, the boys in red come rushing in
To fling the ladies out,
But Doubles-Debbie met that counter-charge
That left it in some doubt.

'Cause beers and chairs were flying,
While brave men stood back in fright;
'Cause the wildest thing this town has seen
Is the Ladies Dart League fight.

Oh, on the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight,
Well, it was such an awful sight;
Those women sure were hard,
not one was left unscarred,
On the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight.

Spoken loudly: All Rise!

Well, in court next day the magistrate
Confiscated all the darts;
And he fined the ladies, I think was,
Fifty bucks for all their separate parts.

He gave them a stern lecture,
And he warned them separately;
The league will be abolished,
'Less the Mounties referee.

So, don't come down to our town
For a tournament this year;
They're not allowed to throw a dart,
Unless the RCMP is there.

They've taken all the darts away,
Yes, and scoreboards are locked up tight;
They keep them in the jail right here
So the ladies will not fight.

'Cause on the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight,
Well, it was such an awful sight;
Those women sure were hard,
not one was left unscarred,
On the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight.
Those women sure were hard,
not one was left unscarred,
On the night the Ladies Dart League
had the fight.
