The Lyrics

I love brisk marching tunes. They are especially good for spoofing warmongers and their idiocy. The Warship March (Gunkan march) has the same meaning for the Japanese as Anchors Aweigh for the Americans. The original song (http://kebuta.fc2web.com/mp3/Gunkan.mp3) can be found here . Certain Japanese radical politicians want to rewrite the Japanese constitution to counter the North Korean nuclear threat.
Now in Japan we've had this constitution sixty years
We're cannot have an army and we cannot build the fleet
Now North Korea has the Bomb - we expect blood and tears
We're grandsons of the Samurai and want to give 'em treat!
Hey Tenno - Heika Banzai! Re-arming Japan!
Now that Kim Jong Il has nukes - we'll draft every man!

As North Korea's army measures several million men
Its navy and is missiles prove us quite severe a threat
You think we're rattling katana - well think it once again -
We'll need again the conscription and you should hold your breath!
Hey Tenno - Heika Banzai! Re-arming Japan!
Now that Kim Jong Il has nukes - we'll draft every man!

(a lenghty trio)

We need to build a navy which would rule the open seas
We need again an air force which will dominate the sky
New battleships and carriers and submarines a fleet -
The Hinomaru will fly proud and soon you will see why!
Hey Tenno - Heika Banzai! Re-arming Japan!
Now that Kim Jong Il has nukes - we'll draft every man!
A Google search for Gunkan March provided this videoclip. Enjoy while listening to the Japanese rattling the katana!
