Chorus: Drums are beating, bugles bray,
Soldiers all embark today,
Troop-ship at the harbour-side
Waits the turning of the tide.
Hark! the siren seems to call,
"Sayonara! Goodbye all!"
Mark the cheering in reply,
"Sayonara! now goodbye!"
Fujiwara: Banzai! Banzai!
When war's the game
The stakes are life,
The prize is fame,
Come stake your all in glory's name!
Away! away!
We'll win the day!
Our fighting flag floats out on high,
Away, away, to do or die!
Banzai! Banzai! Once more, Banzai!
Chorus: Banzai! Banzai!
Great Samurai!
Red war's the game
The prize is fame,
Come, stake your all in glory's name!
Away! away!
We'll win the day!
Our fighting flag floats out on high,
Away, away, to do or die!
Banzai! Banzai! Once more, Banzai!
Banzai! Banzai!
Great Samurai!
Red war's the game
The prize is fame,
Come, stake your all in glory's name!
Away! away!
We'll win the day!
Our fighting flag floats out on high,
Away, away, to do or die!
Banzai! Banzai! Once more, Banzai!
Hana: The sun is darken'd in my sky,
My heart is torn with pain,
As shatter'd lotus petals lie
Beneath the April rain.
To bondage I have sold myself,
The debt of love to pay,
Say you forgive and understand,
Turn not in scorn away,
Say you forgive and understand,
Turn not in scorn away!
Hana (or Geisha):
  Gay little, glad little girls are we,
Eager to please and fair to see,
We like men
With lots of yen,
The door of our hearts has a golden key!
So where is the man who'll pass us by?
Sweet little mouth and laughing eye,
Kisses too, and all for you!
Come along, come along! Don't be shy!
