Oh-oh-oh-oh...

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, but they fought with expert timing

There was funky China men 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, then I'm kickin' from the hip

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, but they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billy Chin and little Sammy Chung
He said, here comes the big boss, let's get it on
We took the bow and made a stand, started swaying with the hand
A sudden motion made me skip, now we're into a brandnew trip

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, but they did it with expert timing

Oh-oh-oh-oh...

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting, those cats were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright'ning, make sure you have expert timing

Oh-oh-oh-oh...

Kung Fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning...

    In the 80's, there was a club in st. Pete beach that had a male review every night for the ladies. There were four brothers who had the gig most nights, and they had routines to different songs that they would "take it all off to. " this is the only song i actually remember from them, and only 1 brother danced to it, but he knew kung-fu, he came out dressed in the fighting clothes they wore in practice, all white, and he started doing kung-fu moves before he segued into his dance routine, which was full of kung-fu moves, and he was the star stripping to that. All the ladies wanted to tuck bucks into his g-string! Why don't they have clubs like that anymore?

    I have tried three different times to correct these lyrics but it won't let me. So: it's 'those cats' not 'those kids' each time, 'chopping them up, chopping them down' not 'trapping when up, trapping when down' (trapping doesn't even make sense), 'from a feint into a slip' not 'for my friend ain't you a stiff', 'Chung' not 'Chong', 'sudden motion made me skip' not 'stiff' (stiff doesn't rhyme with hip) and finally the last chorus says 'make sure to have expert timing' not 'they did it with expert timing'.

    Who ever wrote out this lyrics should really watch the video that is on this page. The words are clearly written on the top for most of the song. I know for a FACT that it isn't 'those kids' but 'those cats'. Even my 3 yr. old can tell that from the song.
