The Lyrics

You come in and have great food. You eat well, but watch out. You get fat, it not my fault. Don't sue me because you fat.
I have a store I own
I make Chow Fun and everything home-grown
Sit in modest throne
It be home to me and I wok alone

I wok this empty seed
Grew it in the yard, cook jumbo steamed
Nothing now I knead
and I wok tons of wons and I wok alone

I wok alone
I wok alone

I wok alone
I wok a-

Like Shaolin, train for cooking many hour
White fellow, see my culinary power
Good times I dish some buns of sweet and sour
For you I wok alone

You shy? Come by, and try, deep-fry
A-mong, Foo-Young, Well-hung

I wok in ev'ry size
Something nice for foreign girls and guys
With their funny eyes
I no judge and always wok alone

Taste buds go for ride
All ducked up with Peking sauce on side
Some cannot decide
I say “NO SAUCE FOR YOU” and I wok alone

I wok alone
I wok alone

I wok alone
I wok a-

Like Shaolin, I am at one with my ginsu
White fellow, put down fork, use sticks as I do
Good times I dish some fun in plates of Moo Shu
And always wok alone

It rain? Re-main, in-sane, Chowww-mein
Big stain, re-frain

I wok alone
I wok a-

(Live Stir-fry solo)

I wok all beef and meat
If it get too hard, it jumbo-steamed
My stuff hard to beat
Some ‘wons and ‘meins and ‘funs and I wok a-

Like Shaolin, never had a drink at Starbucks
White fellow, try some beef and my Peking ducks
If place has buffet then you know that it sucks
That why I wok alone-

(During the final instrumental, the chef comes out and does the best juggling tricks you've ever seen with his cooking utensils)

Absolute classic, 2nz...too many fave lines to choose, but "If place has buffet then you know that it sucks" comes close...bravo! 555

Excellent; pacing is really great. I could sing it along with the music and it's 99.9% syllable-perfect. Awesome parody.

I love this! Something to sing while VH1 and MTV play it over and over and over tonight. 5-5-5

"Good times I dish some buns of sweet and sour"--Now if that's not poetry I don't know what is (actually I *don't* know what is, but I do know what I like). Tasty stuff.

Kristof, you honor my buffet-less restaurant
Arwen, you have FABulous name. I turn into new dish, called Spicy Ar Wen Pow
Jeff, watch where you wok... man. I sorry, but no electric devices in store
AstroMike, I am 99.9% honored, and I throw in extra fortune cookie for last .01%
Spark, I not know VH1, but just for you I make VHWontons
Claude, there is old proverb that he who knows has forgotten how to think. I not know what it means, but for you I get free sweet and sour sauce

HUZZUAHHHH!!!! This thing is SO f'in awesome. Just the fact you parodied the song and managed to not really change the whole "I walk alone" deal. :) Pure Genius.

CaptainMoose, I not know what 'Genius' mean, but all ingredients are pure as flower blossoms. I get you some Wonton soup so you see. Many thank yous.
Lionel, you not say whether you like food or not, but I assume you have good taste, and anyone with good taste like my food.
Captain Obvious, you honor me. I figure it work for Soup Nazi so why not?

Grrreat rhymes throughout, Looney 2nz. Other highlights: "NO SAUCE FOR YOU" and the juggling solo. Since everyone's piping in with suggestions, how 'bout "I Wokked the Dog" to "I Fought the Law"? And since you plugged yours on mine, here's one more for you: http://www.spaff.com/poesy/malone.html

Kristof, my name have 'z' in it. And it not week old, it week-long seasoned.
Guy, you kidding right? You no see link Spaff provide? If you no have good net connection I contact my friend in Wok-mafia. He no good with electronic but he make sure you upgrade... he make very sure.
Charlie, you inspire my new dish, the 'Wok of Life'. It provide ever-lasting life as long as person lives.
Scathe, you honor my fresh food. I try find squinty smiley face, but keyboard no have.
Luke, if you want deep-fry, I need 5 more dollar. Many thank yous.
Adagio, you honor me. You mean 'Excellent won' right?
If you not mentioned yet, no worries. I make large order of your favorite food and be back to give you witty comment soon.

Peter, I get many wok-up calls. Apparently it get out that that be my specialty.
Spaff, 'Wok on Wild Side'... sound like new dish to me. I make for you.
Johnny, I appreciate idea but I get much exposure from tournament. Many orders, very busy so no have time for sequel. You take, do justice, yes?
Phil, maybe you take good idea too. Many thank yous.
Rex, Fortune cookie very good. Mine no have lottery numbers on back, but then I good I no need bribe people to come by. Jeff, you have point. Can I borrow wok-man one day?
Arwen, new FABulous dish go over well. Here you try some sweet and sexy Ar Wen Pow.

Wow, many many new votes. My thank yous.

Hey, I found this recording and it's 99% my parody. I'm not mad so much as honored and curious. I would very much like to know who recorded it. I would have preferred that you ask me first, but really all I want is the credit for writing it. The fact is, someone recorded it and I'd like to know 1) if that person would list me as the author of the lyrics on their site and 2) if that person would want to have it listed on Amiright's front page as a recording. The link to the site I found it on is here:

(2005 SOTY) I thought I commented on this before; this is hilarious Glen. I only vaguely knew TOS until the d/l; the pacing is perfect too (evidenced by the fact some theiving douche recorded this w/o your permission). Also loved what you did you the OS "ah-ah" parts.
