The Lyrics

Here's a quick lesson about a fighting game character named Mizoguchi Makoto: Mizoguchi first appeared in Data East's Fighter History. He also appears in SNK Playmore's The King of Fighters Maximum Impact Regulation A, and he is like Ryu from Capcom's Street Fighter fit in a bargain bin.
You looked just like Ryu
Without a darn top
Your pants were black, but your headband's white
What a flop

You have a Hadouken
Lower than dirt
Set from a crouch position like Sagat
That was absurd

"Thrift Store Ryu", if you will
And SNK's just standing still
But Mizoguchi, please enhance
Your awkward ways of standing a chance

You Shouryuken
Is worth "no air"
You uppercut like Balrog
You're fighting almost fair

You were barely history
I can't believe my eyes
A flying kick fury like Dan Hibiki's
I have to compromise

"Thrift Store Ryu", yes you are
And your skills had went very far
So Mizoguchi, looks can kill
Be respect to a Street Fighter's will

Someone comedic
From Data East
Someone generic
It was you, see?

The hardest question to answer
Is why?
Why?!

"Thrift Store Ryu", if you will
Your training must be fulfilled
Now Mizoguchi, you're not smart
Take a break from studying your arts

Thrift Store Ryu
Thrift Store Ryu
Rip-off of Ryu
Rip-off of Ryu
Bein' like him too
