Kung Fu do what you do to me
I haven't been the same since my teenage lobotomy
Full on, I moved to Hong Kong
With Bruce Lee's brother and Johnny Wong
I think its strange, he's friends with Fu Manchu
And he thinks he knows you
Uh uh uh uh uh oh
Oh Daniel San made in Taiwan Come on Jackie Chan
Uh uh uh uh uh oh
Last night Jackie Chan came 'round
I played pool with him and we hung out
Mr. Miagi and the X-men
Called in for a while as well
Kung Fu do what you do to him
I can't live without my Kung-Fu movies
'Shanghai Killers' and 'Deadly Road'
My life was ruined when the Green Dragon closed
I think it's strange he's friends with Fu Manchu
And he thinks he knows you
Uh uh uh uh uh oh
Oh Daniel San made in Taiwan
Come on Jackie Chan
Uh uh uh uh uh oh
I think it's strange he's friends with Fu Manchu
Uh uh uh uh uh oh
He's in love with you
Oh Daniel San made in Taiwan
Come on Jackie Chan
Uh uh uh uh uh oh

    I can't believe the complete lack of comments on ash's behalf! do their songs mean nothing to you?! rant over :op as for kung fu? I think this is just a plain FuN song. they wrote it while they were teenagers, and this is reflected in the song; energy, enthusiasm. I love dancing to it when I'm at their gigs, it always makes me smile (cheesy but true!).

    jackie chan, mr. miagi--okay. who's everybody else?? but that's not really what i had to say. i just discovered ash, loved their music, looked into it, seems like they're immensely popular. i can't imagine why there are so few posts. maybe the lyrics hold such meaning that people don't even need to share their opinions of it--the meanings are obvious! eh?

    this rules, makes my hand ache, but its all for the satisfaction of being able to play (and nearly sing along to aswell!) an amazing song. i have loved ash since i was about 11, in 97 or something! just dug out 1977 and have been listening to it all day, best album, and tim wheeler is kinda cute u know?! just reminds me of those teenage obsessions, im guessing kung fu was his.... mine would have to be snowboarding!

    I think this is one of Ash's best songs they've ever done. It's a plain old fun song and I love the chorus, it's so cool. I think it's probably about a teenage obsession as well although I never thought about it that way until you said it. Props to the handclaps in the background!

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,
