Monday’s Martial Madness: (Don’t Wanna Ninj) All by Myself- A song parody collaboration with Foo Foo Head.

In the age of COVID, many a ninja finds themselves practicing all alone at home. Ninj-ing (a new verb for the Oxford Dictionary) is no fun when there’s no one to ninj on. We NEED each other. One lonely ninja, the dear and lovely Foo Foo Head poured out her heart’s cry for someone to ninj with one October day when she, our friend and sister Bun Bun-chan, and myself (a.k.a. Weirdo) were chatting on the FB messenger. I filled in a couple of verses, and Voilà! We have a song for the ages. We’ve provided the sound track below to help you sing this out for yourself.

Verse 1
When I was young, 
I never shuto’d anyone
And kamae was just for fun
Those days are gone

Verse 2
Kicking alone
I think of all the friends I've thrown
But when I seoi nage alone
Inside my home

Chorus
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore

Verse 3
Hard to be sure
A little sparring won't secure
And give the ribs a new contour
There's no allure
 
(Guitar Solo)

Chorus
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore

(Very Looooong Orchestral Interlude)

Verse 4
Now that I’m old
Ya know I just can’t be so bold
Omote kote lost its hold
Because you’re gone!

Chorus
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
All by myself
Don't wanna ninj, all by myself, anymore
For the love of all things ninj, get this guy a training partner!
