Mister Miyagi

Don't know 'bout you guys but whenever I hear or read "Mr. Miyagi", my following thoughts would automatically associate it to that favorite movie during my childhood years: The Karate Kid. And no, I'm not talking about the sequel, the desperate attempt on numero tres, the flop female version of Daniel-san, or the most recent doesn't-seem-right Chinese version of Mr. Miyagi. No. I'm talking about the first original movie.

Even I liked it back then in the eighties being a third grader elementary school. The film offers ground-breaking wisdom (lessons) to the young generation in that era, you would think you'd missed out on something life-changing (for that tender age) if you had not seen the movie. Hyperbole alert beeping, I know, but bear with me.

We’re sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick
We’re sick for the big sun
I rumble and trip trip trip trip trip trip trip
I realize that too

Hear the lonesome bell, is this knowledge ?
Ask forgiveness you know somewhere
You’re fixed to an atom
It doesn't matter what you did and if you did it right let’s go

Cruel... and everlasting that’s what you want
Cruel... Cruel... and everlasting that’s what you want

Don’t say no your breakfast teas are gone
