Breakfallin' is Hard to Do

by Michael Hacker

sung to the tune of 'Breaking up is hard to do' by Neil Sedaka

(Dedicated to Roger Plomish who, in his infinite wisdom and good taste, has recognized Neil Sedaka for his vast contributions to the Budo community.)

Don't take my balance away from me
Please don't interrupt my nice hanmi
My belt is black, but my legs are blue
'Cause breakfallin' is hard to do

Remember when you held me tight
And you yonk'd me all through the night
Then you threw in some koshi, too
'Cause breakfallin' is hard to do

They say that breakfalls are hard to do
Now I know, I know that it's true
Don't say I have to do it again
Instead of falling down I wanna roll upon the ground again

I beg of you, don't say "Onegai"
Please don't twist my arm and make me cry
Come on sempai, let me throw you
'Cause breakfallin' is hard to do
