Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting – The Song
Saturday Night’s Alright For Fighting is a song originally recorded by British musician Elton John. John composed it with his long-time songwriting partner Bernie Taupin. It was released on John’s best-selling album Goodbye Yellow Brick Road (1973) and as the first single. The song is one of John’s most critically and commercially successful singles, a No. 7 hit record in the United Kingdom. It has been covered by many artists and featured on motion picture, video game, and television soundtracks. “Saturday Night’s Alright for Fighting” is a lively throwback to early rock and roll with a glam edge. The lyrics discuss a night out in town in which the narrator plans to “get about as oiled as a diesel train”. Taupin has said that the song was meant to be an American rock and roll song set in Britain. It was inspired by his raucous teenage days and in particular, the fistfights in his local pub, the Aston Arms in Market Rasen.
The Clenched Fist – The Shape

Saturday night fist fighting is not to be confused with boxing which is a combat sport in which two people, usually wearing protective gloves and other protective equipment such as hand wraps and mouthguards, throw punches at each other for a predetermined amount of time in a boxing ring.
