Somebody That I Tried to Throw

"Somebody That I Tried to Throw"
[featuring: Gotcha and Kimbo]

[Gotcha:]
Now and then I think of when we were competing
Like when you said you felt so happy just to try
They told me you were in the same weight class as me
But I felt so puny in your company
But Oh my body it's an ache I still remember

I guess I only knew how to do osoto
Like uchikomi in the class, like sensei said
So when I found that I could not get it
Well you said that "now it's gonna be your turn!"
But I'll admit that I was glad when it was over

But you didn't have to throw me down!
As if I was not there, as if I did nothing
And I didn't even need the points!
You beat me like a white belt and that feels so rough
No you didn't even try to throw!
You started like seoi then you changed your number
I guess I ought to try to learn another throw
Now you're just somebody that I tried to throw

Now you're just somebody that I tried to throw
Now you're just somebody that I tried to throw

[Kimbo:]
Now and then I think of all the times you uchikomi'd
You did kuzushi but you never did the throw
But I don't wanna learn that way
Doing half-assed non-throws all day
You thought that you could make it go
And I wouldn't catch you, break your arm, and throw.

[Gotcha:]
But you didn't have choke me out!
Sit on me and put on that armbar thingie!
And I didn't even need the points!
But you beat me like a white belt and that feels so rough
No you didn't even try to throw
You tripped me and I stumbled then you made me slumber
I guess I ought to try to learn another throw
Now you're just somebody that I tried to throw

[x2]
Somebody
(I tried to throw)
Somebody
(Now you're just somebody that I wanted to throw)

(I wanted to throw)
(That I wanted to throw)
(I wish I could throw)
Somebody
