The Gypsy King was sent crashing to the canvas in the 12th but somehow picked his way back up – only to be denied a deserved win and the WBC heavyweight title.
He looked in brilliant spirits at his post-fight press conference, though.
Fury fans will know from his social media exploits that he loves nothing more than a sing-song.
And he did not disappoint again as he belted out Don McLean's classic.
Fury even got trainer Ben Davison to join in, while promoter Frank Warren was a bit more reluctant to do so.
And the Brit refused to blame the judges – particularly Alejandro Rochin who scored it 115-111 in Wilder's favour – for robbing him of his dream.
He said: "I think I had holy hands upon me to lift me back to my feet [in the 12th round] – I don't know what happened.
"It was a great fight. I am not going to complain or call him names.
"I am not the lineal champion for nothing. It was a great experience.
"A year ago today I weighed 400lbs. It is proof anyone can come back from anything.
"I am only a normal man. I was not fighting for myself. When I was down I had to get up for everyone around the world with mental health problems."
"I am not going to cry. I am going to enjoy Christmas and recalculate in January.
"We will see what our next move is."
