Everybody is
Kung Fu Fighting
Your mind becomes fast
As lightning
Although the future
Is a little bit frightening
It's the book of your life
That you're writing

You're a diamond in the rough
A brilliant ball of clay
You could be a work of art
If you just go all the way
Now what would it take to break
I believe that you can bend
Not only do you have to fight
But you have got to win

Everybody is
Kung Fu Fighting
Your mind becomes fast
As lightning
Although the future
Is a little bit frightening
It's the book of your life
That you're writing

You are a natural
Why is it so hard to see
Maybe it's just because
You keep on looking at me
The journey's a lonely one
So much more than we know
But sometimes you've got to go
Go on and be your own hero

Everybody is
Kung Fu Fighting
Your mind becomes fast
As lightning
Although the future
Is a little bit frightening
It's the book of your life
That you're writing

You're a diamond in the rough
A brilliant ball of clay
You could be a work of art
If you just go all the way
Now what would it take to break
I believe that you can bend
Not only do you have to fight
But you have got to win

'Coz everybody is
Kung Fu Fighting
Your mind becomes fast
As lightning

    It doesn't mean about kung fu at all! They just hide the meaning so that only people who really understand about reaching your goals and doing what you dream about or want to do can see the real meaning of this song; believe in yourself and reach for the stars! Keep fighting!

    Also those of you who just think this song is just about kung fu you must have missed the lyrics because it means so much more then that.

    I think the song kung fu fighting could be applied to real life. This is because this song is saying that you are shaping your life and you have to do your best. It also says that you can be your own hero and so personally this song is really inspiring.

    In any martial art they teach toy self defence in other words if you get your teeth knocked out its not kung fu, tae kwon do, or karate's fault its the persons fault for not doing the proper moves to counter an attack. I highly recommend any matial art its great for anyone!!!

    Kung fu fighting is not nice beacuse fighting is bad for you. You may break someone's teeth or, what is worse, you may get yours broken.
