  • Song Lyrics:
    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

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

    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 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 new trip

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

    (repeat)..make sure you have expert timing
    Kung-fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning
