There's no Budo

by Janet Rosen

sung to the tune of "There's no business", by Ethel Merman

There's no budo
Like Aikido
Like no budo I know
Everything about it is atemi
Everything OSensei would allow
Nowhere can you get that happy feeling
When you are kneeling
In seiza for hours.

There's no uke
Like my uke
He breakfalls when I throw
Yesterday they told you you would not roll far
Tonight you randori'd and there you are
Tomorrow in your dressing room there's a hakama
Let's all practice nikkyo
Let's all do Aikido.
