The Lyrics

This is my travel parody. By the way, my real name is Caleb.
I can take the fact that I'm not at all living there
That don't bother me
Still I'd like to just go and see everything to be seen
Among them,

Sushi bar, DDR
Matsuri, Anime
BeForU, takoyaki are awesome
There are days that I say I'm content
Where I'm at, but you know, there's one place I must go

I love Japan
I'll go when I can
There's really so much to do
Not being there makes me blue

And never knowing
Where I have been
At the land of the rising sun
Where my new life has begun

It's hard to speak, I don't know a single word of this Japanese
But I'm learning it
Ain't hard to keep that smile when I see the good old ZeppTokyo
Still harder

Getting up, getting dressed
Playing that IIDX*
But I know, that I can AAA it
I've been saved, it's so great
Watching some anime
In my heart, Japan's my new homeland

I love Japan
I'll go when I can
There's really so much to do
Not being there makes me blue

And never knowing
Where I have been
At the land of the rising sun
Where my new life has begun, oh
Oh yeah!

I love Japan
I'll go when I can
There's really so much to do
Not being there makes me blue

And never knowing
Where I have been
At the land of the rising sun
Where my new life has begun

At the land of the rising sun
Where my new life has begun
IIDX: Pronounced "Two-dee-ecks". A DJ simulation game from the makers of DDR.

You know what I like about Japan? I love the food there such as soba noodles and sushi. They have vending machines selling hot foods. It also reminds me of this PS2 game Arcana Heart, don't know if you heard about it yet. I also like Street Fighter games as well. Another great attractions for Japan are Dotonbori in Osaka with the mechanical drum playing clown in Kuidaore Taro restaurant and Kani Doraku Crab with the 6 meter crab on top of the restaurant. Tokyo is nice, too. Here's 5 katana swords, 5 ninja outfits, and 5 shurikens! P.S. SNK King of Fighters is also popular.

Awesome, ninja gear! Why didn't I include ninjas in this parody? Or samurai? By the way, I have seen Arcana Heart at Gamestop before, but have no clue what it's about. Isn't it from the makers of Tekken? I think I'll do some more Japan-related parodies, not just about Japan, but parodies of Japanese music! Asian Kung-Fu Generation and L'Arc~En~Ciel are my top targets for parodying J-Pop. For now, konnichiwa, Christie-chan! P.S. If you want to know even more about Japan, play the game Katamari Damacy for PS2, in which you roll a large, sticky ball around Japan and pick up everything along the way.

I wonder how many interests we share, I did one called "Love for Japan" to the Boyz II Men hit "I'll Make Love for You", very coincidence, cool

Ironic! Yeah, Japan has most of our favorite things nowadays. I'll check out your parody as soon as I finish responding to comments. Sayonara, Dave-sama!

Atama-e Desu nay, ichibon tomodachi. DJ if you ever get the chance to visit Japan go, just go. I lived in the Tokyo area for 3 years and then I spent about 2 months in northern Japan still on Honshu about 9 years later. I spent a lot of my free time learning about their culture. Sushi was not tolerated very well by the Americans that I knew there. They stuck their nose up at what they called ewe - raw fish. I had a lot of Japanese friends and they introduced me to sushi. So I ate sushi when sushi wasn't cool. Also the very first thing I ate when I arrived in country was Mongolian Barbeque. It took a long time for that idea to catch on in the states. My experience with the food was that it was totally awesome or it really reeked. There seemed to be no in-between. I've also visited South Korea. The culture evolves quickly as I realized when I returned 9 years after loving there for 3 years. Not sure how it is now but back when I was there it was awesome.

And Benihana is tourist fodder. The real cuisine as I remember was in the small Mama San Papa San eateries. Tacoyaki was a favorite of mine. A friend named Kondo that I worked with introduced me to it. He would make Tacoyaki runs and always ask me if I wanted some and it was always a yes answer. The name means prepared or cooked Octopus. Any food with "yaki" on the end means prepared as from a recipe. Tacoyaki is a lot like a crab cake but so much better tasting.

Can't say that I understand much about the games in a lot of your parodies since I am not into video gaming but the parodies that I do understand writen by you are well written. Atoday - nay?

Arigato, Guy! I think my main problem here is too many obscure subjects. And obscure OSes. I just met someone at my local soup kitchen who has lived in Japan for a while. Ironic you'd bring this one back up the same day that happened!
