View Full Version : "Feeling Aiki"

Didn't somebody once post a song parody on here called "Feeling Aiki", sung to the tune of Feeling Groovy? I think it started out with "slow down you move to fast. You've got to make the waza last..." I can't find it in the archives. If anybody has it on file could you please post it.

Please tell me no one actually sings these...
Had one person think it was a good idea in the pub one night, got them to sing it while doing a technique next lesson (on the basis it would help their breathing in practice of course - not 'cos I'm a git), managed to nip this one in the bud!
What next - kareoke aikido styles?
It went like this
Slow down, you move too fast
You got to make the waza last
Relax, center down
Extend your ki and there goes uke
(dadada da da da da, there goes uke)
We came up with this after watching a couple of ikkyu tests

Here's the original:
Simon and Garfunkel - 59th Street Bridge Song
Slow down, you move too fast, you've got to make the morning last
Just kickin' down the cobble-stones, lookin' for fun and feelin' groovy, feeling groovy
Hello lamp-post, what'cha knowin', I've come to watch your flowers growin'
Ain'cha got no rhymes for me, do-it-a-do-do, feelin' groovy, feeling groovy
I've got no deeds to do, no promises to keep
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me
Life I love you, all is groovy.
change at your will.

You guys inspired me...
Here's my humble offering, sung to the tune of "I get no kick from champagne'....
My story is much too sad to be told
My creaking, aching joints are making me old
I offer nikyo as a point in case
When Iím down on bended knee
Fighting vainly the urge to flee
Then I suddenly turn and see
Your fiendish face
I get no kick from the pain
Mere Tylenol doesnít help me at all,
To my shame I admit that itís true
I canít wait to nikyo you
I got a kick in the groin
I couldnít rise till the throbbing subsides
Grab my wrist and Iíll circle on cue
Then I get to nikyo you
I get a kick every time I see you kneeling there
I get a kick though itís clear to see
You obviously do not adore me
I get a kick from your face
Flying up high with your skirts in the sky
After I jointlock and fling you goodbye
Oh, I get a kick out of you...
