The Lyrics

There are at least two areas where the pacing is a bit off, but if I don't submit it, I won't get any studying done for my finals. Enjoy your meal.
Oh, once upon a Kung-Pow chicken
I ate with chopsticks in my hand
I couldn't escape the sodium
There was so much more than I had planned
Like a sumo wrestler at a dim-sum bar
I could load up on stir fries
When I mix in an egg roll and much fried rice
You know it's going to increase my size
Yeah, wash it down with wanton pies

I'll try tofu and eat more lo mien
And eat some rice, then more rice, plain
The sweet'n'sour sushi is looking good
As much as anything wrapped in seaweed would
So please give me
(Some) more green tea
My fortune's free
With this cookie

Mushu!!!
Munchin' Oriental at King Kung-Pow
I come here everyday to grab some grub
So lemme have some diiiiiiiiim-sum now

Please don't miss your happy meals
All the french fries and rings
Do you really need the Big Mac's power
Or Bojangles and their fryin' chicken wings
We got raw fish, didn't cook it at all
The wasabi's not for the weak at heart
N' racists get tossed right off the greatest wall
So watch out you don't dish the risp
DON'T YOU EVER DISH THE RISP

Well, I'm a young grass-hopper, I want you to teach me
So cook me fighting food, because I'm Bruce Lee
We'll mix up race, wouldn't that be swell
And soon if we're lucky we'll be unable to tell

Who's Wong and white
We'll do this right
So there's not a shoe in sight
And here we are for a bite

Tofu!!!
Munchin' Oriental at King Kung-Pow
I come here everyday to grab some grub
They know me by how looooow I bow

I la-la-love the stuff inside-a this wok and I've
Got a new pork stew
It seems the table stands no matter what we drop
Because the thing is made out of bamboo
Oh sure the hot sauce might be cold and the pork's getting older
It might be from a former dynasty
But I know no matter what the waitress brings
It is greasy and that is for me
Yeah, it is greasy and that is for me

Oh, there's no coffee
There's hot green tea
And if it makes Buddha happy it's fine with me
I still have a fear where the ground will shake
I'm sorry, that's Japan with all the strong earthquakes
Well alright, bing bang
The song's been sang
Let's thank Fe, Chang and her partners Yin and Yang

No Shoe(s)
Munchin' Oriental at King Kung-Pow
I come here everyday to grab some grub
So give me some dim-sum now

Mushu!!!
Munchin' Oriental at King Kung-Pow
I come here everyday to grab some grub
So lemme have some diiiiiiiiim-sum now

I don't know if you had bad pacing or not, I am not a big fan of the song, but this was wacky! Have you tried Rush's Chinese Food over at http://www.amiright.com/parody/80s/rush2.shtml? :))455
