Parody Song Title:

"Saw 'Kung Fu'"

Parody Written by:

Claude Prez

The Lyrics

I seek...fives.
Saw Kung Fu
It was on the TV
Saw Kung Fu
Now it's on D-VD

Kwai Chang Caine
Will bring the pain
To the rowdy cowboys
He wishes not to fight but sometimes
He simply got no choice
Never makes no noise

Saw Kung Fu
Prayin' and a-bowin'
Saw Kung Fu
Hangin' with the Shaolin

Master Po*
Says time to go
You young grasshopper
Cause when you snatch the pebble from my hand
You'll kick some ass for sure

Saw Kung Fu
Choosing not to slaughter
Saw Kung Fu
Seeking lots of water

Dragon marks
I bet that smarts
With the forearm burn
Ain't no wussy needle/ink tattoo
It's something you must urn

Saw Kung Fu
Squintin' with the sad eyes
Saw Kung Fu
Beatin' up the bad guys

Shaolin monks
Can bash the punks
When they get outta line
But first you got to try to honor life
And then it's smackdown time

Saw Kung Fu
On a cable rerun
Saw Kung Fu
Kicking butt would be fun...
*Actually, it was Master Kan, not Master Po, who did the pebble thing. But it was Master Po who called him "grasshopper". Just pre-emptively defending myself against the anal guys.

Being a monk, balls turned blue would have been good here. Pretty good pacing and storyline, 4 for humor.

When you can snatch the fives from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.....(twenty years of kung-fu practice and meditation later)......Time for you to leave.

Not one of your best Claude, but still pretty decent. I gave you a 5-4-4. Back to the chopping block! ;-)

Ahhh... It's not time for you to leave, Claude-hopper, but take these 5's anyway...I see ChuckyG fooled you on the entries. I tried to get on last night to post one but couldn't get to the Server until mid-morning today. I was able to reach other sites last night but it was slow-go wherever I went for some reason (maybe my access provider, too?) so I finally gave up and just went for a ride with some CD's. Nice night out here in SoCal, should be same tonight.

Claudehopper, I grant you divine 5's. Use them wisely....

Excellent parody and the title fit like a glove. Well done Claude.

Nice going, Claudehopper.....5, 4, just isn't as funny as it could be in my opinion, sorry.

The journey to a five-five-five begins with a single vote. Mine. But if you continue to praise David Carradine, Uma Thurman would like a word with you. Now, if she'll just stop off at my place first... Yeah, right, THAT would be the time for Catherine to show up!

Hey thanks everyone. I agree it's not my best ever but I've been uninspired lately and wanted to at least have one eligible for the song of the month contest over on the messageboard.

I don't think that this is an easy song to parody, and this is very well done. I like the urn pun.
Jay W - April 01, 2004 - Report this comment
Some say this is lackluster, including the author, buI really like it. (Maybe that's because I'm a white guy who likes to act Chinese.)
mac - April 01, 2004 - Report this comment
A funny thing, but Carradine almost seems Chinese in it... I wonder, if Bruce Lee had got the part, if he'd have had a hit?

Claude, Glad to see you chose this song in the SOTM competiton. This is a great parody.

"First you got to try to honor life And then it's smackdown time." Heh heh. I've never seen "Kung Fu," but even the jokes I don't get are funny.

Not bad Claude
Claude Prez - April 12, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks to everyone else who's commented; just read all the other SOTM entries and I'm kinda embarrassed at this one now. Not that I don't like it but WOW there's some good ones up there.
Paul Robinson - April 28, 2004 - Report this comment
Finally getting around to me SOTM for March voting. We have no higher level of Parody sites to send you, young Claude-hopper. But take these 5's and go write some more this good.

Nice. You had me at 'Hangin' with the Shaolin'.
