The Lyrics

What is it with the arts of the mystical East.....and pale, ugly, white suburban boys? KA-POW!!

You've got a pigeon chest and those wack ginger curls
That's why you get beat up by pre-teen girls
You love arts, martial- you're "in the zone"
But you ain't no Jackie Chan, more like Jacqui Stallone!

You're not too brightbut you like.KARATE!!

That guy, Steven Seagull, he's the King Kung-Fu
He's spouting Zen crap, so you do too
You dress like Chuck Norris, head to toe
You're not even as good as Ralph Macchio!

Dude, when you's not quite.KARATE!

Your dojo's run by K-Mart and your black belt's made of rope
You're just another spotty, skinny, white Tae Kwan Dope
You may talk the talk, but it's all a sham
Coz frankly, I don't give a (Jean Claude Van) damn.

You want to smite.but you K'RATE!!

K'RATE!! [I'll kick your ass!]

K'RATE!! [Fists of Fury!!!]

K'RATE!! [mommy.]
