And Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting...

A quiet morning in Beihai Park in central Beijing and who would imagine that with the slightest turn of a corner - suddenly that haunting sound of....


Everybody was Kung Fu fighting

Those cats were fast as lightning

In fact it was a little bit frightening

But they fought with expert timing

There were funky China men from this funky China town

The 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 cats were fast as lightning
and it was so exciting
And 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
and now we're into a brand new trip

And Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
And it was fantastic!!! I love this country!
