The Lyrics

Martial arts can be fun. But drying up your moist equipment after a practise session isn't. "Bogu" means the kendo armour.
My bogu lies over the bathroom
My shinai lies over the bench
On clothesline, there hangs my hakama
- they're moist of the sweat - what a stench!

Dry-ing, dry-ing
it's drying my gear over night for me
Dry-ing, dry-ing
it's drying my gear just for me

His armour lies over the sauna
there's cuirass and ther's gambeson -
In toilet lie helmet and gauntlets -
there greaves and the bokken too found

Dry-ing, dry-ing
it's drying his gear over night for him
Dry-ing, dry-ing
it's drying his gear just for him

The stench rises over the bathroom
Our sauna does from the sweat swell;
It's not doo-doo aroma in toilet
but other secretions there smell

Dry-ing, dry-ing
it's drying our gear over night, you see
Dry-ing, dry-ing
the air just is too thick to breathe!

Serious "eww" factor... may I add a verse?
Miasma hangs over the bathroom
Miasma clings onto my gi
It's makes martial arts much less arty
And plays merry hell with my chi

...or something like that
