The Lyrics

For those unaware, according to the Urban Dictionary, a Wapanese person is a white guy who tries to act Japanese, much like a white guy who's trying to act black is called a.... yeah, I think you get the idea.
I got my manga of Yu Yu Hakusho
I wrote a haiku and I love it so
I sit there staring down at my puzzle of Soduko
Oh it’s the sake that I’m drinking down
It makes my face warm Takes away my frown
I wield katana when there’s no one else around

I got anime, I got katana
I swing it ‘round with mighty ninjutsu
I’m eating sushi, I’m eating Pocky
So I’ll be Japanese on the inside too
It’s got me jumping up and ducking down
and climbing in and spinning ‘round

I’m turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
Turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
I say I’m turning Japanese
They say I’m turning Wapanese
‘Cause I’m a white boy
Turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so

I got anime, I got katana
I swing it ‘round with mighty ninjutsu
I’m eating sushi, I’m eating Pocky
So I’ll be Japanese on the inside too
It’s got me jumping up and ducking down
and climbing in and spinning ‘round

I’m turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
Turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
I’m turning Wapanese

I say I’m turning Japanese
They say I’m turning Wapanese
‘Cause I’m a white boy
Well I tell them to nuff off
‘cause at least I do not like
that Yoko Ono

No sex, no drugs, no sake, no hentai
no fun, no sin, no you, no wonder it’s dark
Everyone around me is a total stranger
Do they avoid me because I like the Japanese Power Rangers

Wai wai I’m turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
Turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
I say I’m turning Japanese
They say I’m turning Wapanese
‘cause I’m a white boy
Still I am turning Wapanese
And I like doing ninja stuff
Like I’m Naruto

Turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
Turning Wapanese
I think I’m turning Wapanese
I really think so
I say I’m turning Japanese
They say I’m turning Wapanese
‘cause I’m a white boy
(white boy white boy whitey whitey white boy)
I think I’m turning Wapanese
Because I like to eat rice balls
with the sauce of soy.

Great idea (I know someone who would fit this parody very well). Could have changed more in the 2nd half of the tune, so a 554 from me.

Agri, i know EXACTLY who you are referring to. Perhaps if KintarosTiger mentioned Lemon Demon in this parody that person would be here like a shot!
