The Lyrics

IBM recently announced that their Watson computer is learning Japanese. Don't Know The Original Song (DKTOS)? It's on YouTube
The thing they dreamt up was something new
They called it Watson when they were through
It sits there thinking 'cause there's nothing else to do
It's pulling data straight from the cloud
The IBM'ers are very proud
'Cause for an A.I. it is very well endowed

It's learning Spanish, a lot of Spanish
So it can talk to people en Espanol
And once established at learning Spanish
Then it will learn the language of Portugal
And then it's moving on and learning more
Which mother tongue will it try for

It's learning Japanese, I think it's learning Japanese, I really think so
Learning Japanese, it's way beyond the A-B-C's, I really think so
Learning Japanese, it's gaining lots of expertise, I really think so
Learning Japanese, it's now expanding overseas, I really think so

It's gaining knowledge, like it's in college
It's playing Jeopardy and winning each time
We should pay homage and all acknowledge
It wants to now be known as Optimus Prime
It fell in love with ASIMO
And so its language skills must grow

It's learning Japanese, I think it's learning Japanese, I really think so
Learning Japanese, it's so much smarter than PCs, I really think so
Learning Japanese, it formulates hypotheses, I really think so
Learning Japanese, it holds its own with PhD's, I really think so

No sex, no drugs, no wine, no women, just bits, and bytes, and baud, and Boolean too
It could be the pinnacle of all creation
It could be the planet's ultimate Playstation
It could be

That's why it's learning Japanese, I think it's learning Japanese, I really think so
Learning Japanese, and proper ways to serve green teas, I really think so
Learning Japanese, and cultivating bonsai trees, I really think so
Learning Japanese, and saying hello to kitties, I really think so

Learning Japanese, I think it's learning Japanese, I really think so
Learning Japanese, and growing exponentially, I really think so
Learning Japanese, and reading manga constantly, I really think so
Learning Japanese, and then it's on to - Cantonese?, I really think so
