"Kung Fu Fighting" as written by and Perry Lee....
Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

They were funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up and they were chopping them down
It's an ancient Chinese art and everybody knew their part
From a feint into a slip, and kicking from the hip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
He said here comes the big boss, lets get it on
We took a bow and made a stand, started swinging with the hand
The sudden motion made me skip now we're into a brand knew trip

Everybody was kung-fu fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit frightening
But they did it with expert timing

Make sure you have expert timing
Kung-fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning

    General CommentYou are both overlooking the innate beauty of the poetic motif which Mr. Douglas has employed here; the brilliant rhymes of 'fighting', with 'lightning', and, finally and most especially, 'timing'.

    Yeh it is a cool song, Reminds me of '70's crime dramas...it's def got that melodramatic thing to it.

    General CommentI have always HATED this song, and unfortunately it played on radio stations for months after it first hit the airwaves! Wish to drive me crazy? Play this song and crank the volume!
