Lyrics

One night in August, in a warehouse,
'bout a quarter past nine.
You promised you'd show me your jump kick,
if I stood still.

I always envied all your magazines.
Thought your sister was hot.
You climbed up on a stack of boxees,
and leapt at me.

And as one leg extended under the fading sun,
I fixated on the ballast of the unextended one.

To have sweet ninja skills,
it must be pretty fun.

Seems like Asian kids have all the best moves.

I learned the letters in my alphabet
by the time I was five.
I heard you speaking several languages
when you were three.

I got my undergrad in English
through the SUNY system.
You got a scholarship to law school
at NYU.

I'm not a racist, alright maybe yes I am,
but the whole board of admissions there
was all made in Japan.

It's not eugenics; it's just nepotism, man.

Seems like Asian kids have all the best moves.

Say "sayonara" when I mean "gomen no sai"
No self-identity at all. We're gonna try
to re-appropriate the joys of childhood
Nintendo, anime, it made us feel so good

Alright.
But we're poor,
and white.

You can pretend that you're something you like
When you're poor
and white.

When you identify as cultureless they,
call you a vulture when you try to get away from the gloom.

Should be no surprise who we choose,
when Asian kids have all the best moves.

Me and my homeboys playin' the club one night,
Tricks, and bitches and ho's.

I don't know why you had to show up,
but you did.

You could have been at any
other bar in town,
but you take your flaming dragon punch and
follow us around.

We're all on fire now and
flying to the to ground.

Say "sayonara" when I mean "gomen no sai"
No self-identity at all. We're gonna try
to re-appropriate the joys of childhood
Nintendo, anime, it made us feel so good

Alright.
But we're poor,
and white.

We can latch on to something we like
When we're poor
and white.

When you identify as cultureless,
they call you a vulture if you
try to get away from the gloom
should be no suprise who we choose,
when Asian kids have all the best moves.
