A lot of people always come up to me and say, “Hey Bill, you look like you love The Karate Kid. You also look like you probably are a practitioner of the ancient and deadly art of karate. Are you? Can you teach me?” This happens a lot. Too much, in fact. It actually got to a point that I thought, “Why don’t I just write a song that talks about my love of the Karate Kid, as well as my lack of knowledge of karate.” So that’s what I did. Listen, this song will probably change a lot of people’s lives for the better, and that’s cool. If there’s one thing my mother taught me, it’s you should strive to change people’s lives for the better. If there’s two things she taught me, it’s that I make a better door than a window, even though I am a pain. That’s a “Billy, you’re standing in front of the tv” joke.

So I present to you,

Karate

All Music written and performed by Bill Powers

Lyrics and Vocals by Bill McMorrow

Backing Vocals by Bill Powers and Dave Coy

Recorded at Fallen Angel Records in Quincy, Massachusetts

Thanks for reading and listening. Be forewarned that there is some graphic language at some points in the song, so make sure that if you have any small children listening that they pay close attention to the swear words in particular. You do want them to grow up to be cool, don’t you?
