Written-By – Carl Douglas. Let The Birds Sing, Something For Nothing ‎(7"). Carl Douglas & The Big Stampede. Something For Nothing ‎(7").

Carlton George Douglas (born 10 May 1942), also known by his stage name Carl Douglas, is a Jamaican recording artist who rose to prominence with the 1974 disco single "Kung Fu Fighting". Douglas was born as Carlton George Douglas on 10 May 1942 in Kingston, Jamaica to Jamaican parents. After his grandmother died, his family relocated to the United Kingdom. He spent his childhood in England playing football, and vocal training

In 1964 Carl formed the group the Big Stampede, which released two singles in Britain. In 1966 Douglas formed another band called the Explosions while living in Spain. He then returned to England and teamed up with the band Gonzales prior to becoming a session vocalist for Pye Records. Carl worked with Indian-born music producer Biddu on the soundtrack to the movie "Embassy" in 1972. Two years later Biddu asked Douglas to sing the vocal on the song "I Want to Give You My Everything. Biddu needed another song for the B-side to the single, so Biddu came up with a melody for.

Biddu originally hired Carl to sing the song, but he needed something to record for the B-side of the record and he asked Carl if he had any lyrics they could use. Carl chose the lyrics that would be called Kung Fu Fighting and worked on a melody for it without taking it too seriously. Due to a three-hour time constraint at the recording studio, the song was quickly recorded in the last ten minutes of the session. At first, the song didn’t get any airplay on the radio for the first five weeks, but it later became popular in dance clubs
