    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!

    General CommentThe meaning to the song was to make fun of all of the Martial Arts movies and TV shows that suddenly sprang to existence from Bruce Lee and his popularity in that time. (Especially since Bruce made his movies super cheap as a snark to the studio's that would not consider him a true "actor" just because he was oriental!) They even used two of the character's names from his movies! (Funky Billy Chin and Little Sammy Choung) so it's a spoof of a spoof about being RACIST targeted at the very huge midwestern RACIST white community!
    So it's like putting a quail into a chicken into a duck into a turkey into a goose!
    Also because a Black man was doing a song about a yellow man fooling the white man!

    If for no other great reason I shall always LOVE this song for playing on the RACISTS!
