"Real Life Fighting is Akward" is a musical performance by Chester Gregory. In this song it's explained that real life fighting between people is nothing like the choreographed fight scenes featured in films. The song was first heard in the Season Four episode "I Have To Get Out".

The song with lyricsEdit

Real Life Fighting Is Awkward - feat

Real Life Fighting Is Awkward - feat. Skylar Astin & Vincent Rodriguez III - "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"

Lyrics:

Funk Singer:
Ooohhhooo, Ooohhhooo

Real life fighting is awkward
It's not like movie fighting.
Testosterone is rising but
you're really just grappling and writhing.

Oh, real life fighting is awkward
There are no cool sound effects.
Punching doesn't sound like anything.
You often hurt yourself
more than you hurt the other guy.

Real life fighting is awkward,
Yeah even if you know karate.
You have to both agree to use karate.
It can't just be one guy using karate.
You gotta have some ground rules.

Aooohhhooo, aoohhhooo

Its not like theater fighting.
It's not graceful,
there's not a lot of leaping
You don't have the presence of mind to leap
and there's no choreographer
keeping things from looking awkward.

Again, real life fighting is awkward
It's not like sci-fi fighting.
You can't stop time momentarily.
There are no futuristic weapons.

And, even if you had a real weapon,
You'd be freaked out by the weapon.
A weapon makes everything too real.

Back to that clumsy, awkward fighting!


NotesEdit

Song homageEdit

This song is a clear homage to the 1974 disco hit "Kung Fu Fighting" from artist Carl Douglas.

Fighting referencesEdit


This song features fight sequences inspired by scenes from stage and screen:
  • The first sequence pays homage to the franchise "Die Hard" with Josh in the role of John McClane and Greg playing a terrorist.
  • The second sequence homages Kung Fu films; notably Josh is dressed as Bruce Lee's character from "Enter The Dragon." He also mimics Lee's movements and shouts.
  • The third fight sequence references the musical "West Side Story" with its highly choreographed and theatrically stylized fighting.
  • The fourth fight sequence parodies the light saber duels from "Star Wars" along with the look and slow motion action featured in "The Matrix."
