  • Our days of comfort, days of night
    Don`t put yourself in solitude
    Who can I trust with my life
    When people tend to be so rude

    My mama borned me in a ghetto
    There was no mattress for my head
    But, no, she couldn`t call me Jesus
    I wasn`t white enough, she said

    And then she named me, Kung Fu
    Don`t have to explain it, no, Kung Fu
    Don`t know how you`ll take it, Kung Fu
    I`m just trying to make it, Kung Fu

    I`ve got some babys and some sisters
    My brother worked for Uncle Sam
    It`s just a shame, ain`t it, Mister
    We being brothers of the damned

    Keep your head high, Kung Fu
    I will til I die, yeah, Kung Fu
    Don`t be too intense, no, Kung Fu
    Keep your common sense, yeah, Kung Fu

    Don`t mistake life for a secret
    There is no secret part of you
    You bet your life if you think wicked
    Someone else is thinking wicked too

    My mama borned me in a ghetto
    There was no mattress for my head
    But, no, she couldn`t name me Jesus
    I wasn`t white enough, she said

    And then she named me, Kung Fu
    Don`t have to explain it, no, Kung Fu
    Don`t know how you`ll take it, Kung Fu
    I`m just trying to make it, Kung Fu
