Sumo Things

Sumo Things was the result of a challenge from Gary Taylor, a music manager based in Canada. "Write a song called 'Sumo Things'," he said. At the time, I had been listening to the band System Of A Down a lot. In fact, the band's music helped keep me awake while driving across the country to Los Angeles where I attended the ASCAP Music festival. The chorus of this song was inspired by a SOAD song.

The album cover was Photoshop work. I had actually written "KIAI" in pen on my fingers.

Big boys get your big thing on
Get your groove get your grip let the sweat drip
Big boys get your sumo thing on
Sumo eat sumo sleep work that sumo beat

Hang on sumo ding dong get your groove on

Top knot you’re hot wear the mawashi
Get it on ding dong with this rikishi song
Wrestle sekitori don the yukata
Cmon kimarite you sumo boys are strong

Hang on sumo ding dong get your groove on
Hang on sumo ding dong get your groove on

Crash bang sumo man take that big boy down
Take him down count down let’s get another round
Head brace power shake rikishi make the earth quake
Do that sumo thing get that boy out of the ring

Hang on sumo ding dong get your groove on
Hang on sumo ding dong get your groove on

Big boys you got those sumo things
Sumo wives sumo digs ding dong get in the ring
