The Lyrics

A WW2 grudge settled by two old soldiers. A true story.
Grandpa saw a new family in town
Then Japanaman appeared
Grandpa nearly grabbed his gun
And ammunition
Japanaman glanced at "roundeye"
Bad thoughts
World War loss
Thought he recognized the man
Roundeye vs the Japanaman

They met one sunrise
Machinegun fire drew
An M1 and an Arisaka in view
The Japanaman
Oh, the Japanaman fired
The Roundeye fired
Then came blood
In a foxhole was a duel

Flamethrowers and mortar throws
All around shots flied
The Rising Sun vs the Allies
The Japanaman fought
The Roundeye fought
The Japanaman sought
To spill my Grandpa's blood
With a bayonet if he could!

The Japanaman made a big mistake
Was very cold and vicious
Carrying out the Emperor's wishes
Kill the Yank and just finish it

Grandpa felt no sorrow
Had a dagger, didn't scream
Stabbed him in the stomach and rejoined his team
The Japanaman
Oh, the Japanaman ran
The Japanaman ran
'Cause he was losing blood
Needed medical attention

Postwar stayed awake
Nightmares made him nauseous
Moved to America with wishes
Found Grandpa, drank Saki, ate fishes
Yeah, yeah, yeah
A better tomorrow
Old slate wiped clean
Forget the sorrow and become a peace machine
The Japanaman's plan

The Japanaman and Grand dad
Made up as men
And later had some fun
Which did our families good

Yes, the Japanaman planned
Made some delicious food
Brought us some which tasted good
The Japanaman, the Japanaman, the Japanaman
The Japanaman, the Japanaman, the Japanaman
Became a good friend...
