The Lyrics

There is a myth you can lop a machine gun barrel in two with a samurai sword. This song is about trying to find out whether it works or not...
My sword is sharp and my aim is keen
ten-fifty carbon steel -ah!
The blade is hard as steel can be -
Clink! goes katana!

I got me old machine gun - so
I'll strike a-twain the barrel
I raise the sword and strike "kote" -
Clink! goes katana!

The sparks and splinters fly around
the barrel is unharmed - oh!
My blade got nasty nick and it's ruined -
Clink! goes katana!

The outcome doesn't me impress
I'll try another strike now -
Woops - that blade now breaks in two -
Clink! goes katana!

So all you kids now listen and learn
before you ruin a shinken -
Those vorpal blades just don't exist -
Clink! goes katana!

5-5-5 for you! Actually, they tried that myth on Mythbusters, & it was busted, as they say.

Thought this would be about the Shop at Home guy (And the nice thing about these practice katanas... OW! Ohh, that hurt!) No matter.
