Additional Song - Makei and Girls - "Japanese soldier boy"

MIDI File

Makei: In time of war, when guns go pop
And bullets cleave the air,
Japanese soldier boy is quite all there,
Girls: Quite all there!
Makei: If crafty foes attempt to chop
Or slice or hew or hack,
Japanese soldier boy just hits them back.
Girls: In the back!
Makei: When duty calls him, forth he'll go,
With flashing eye and heart aglow,
Prepared to overcome the foe.
Oh! Japanese soldier boy,
Ah! Strategy he'll employ.
Lots of plots the foe may hatch,
But for them he's quite a match,
They will find it hard to catch,
A Japanese soldier boy!
Girls: Oh! Japanese soldier boy,
Ah! Strategy he'll employ.
Lots of plots the foe may hatch,
But for them he's quite a match,
They will find it hard to catch,
A Japanese soldier boy!
   
Makei: In time of peace, his duty lies
In facing foe more fair,
Japanese soldier boy is still all there,
Girls: Quite all there!
Makei: A killing glance from Beauty's eyes
He often has to meet,
Japanese soldier boy does not retreat.
Girls: What a treat!
Makei: And when he's vanquish'd all the lot,
Embracing ev'ry chance he's got,
He'll then salute them on the spot.
Oh! Japanese soldier boy,
Ah! Strategy he'll employ.
Lots of plots the girls may hatch,
But for them he's quite a match,
They will find it hard to catch,
A Japanese soldier boy!
Girls: Oh! Japanese soldier boy,
Ah! Strategy he'll employ.
Lots of plots the girls may hatch,
But for them he's quite a match,
They will find it hard to catch,
A Japanese soldier boy!
