lyrics

Watch me first
then do as I do
I believe in you
own this earth
don’t let it own you
this is your debut

I moulded you like play-doh
I took you to the plateau
when you were just a small fry
I taught you how to survive
You’ve got that shine, golden glow
you must protect the people
from sensei to samurai
It’s time to now say goodbye

Take your time
but always prepare
yourself for the worst
Tell no lies
and always be fair
they look up to you

I moulded you like play-doh
I took you to the plateau
when you were just a small fry
I taught you how to survive
You’ve got that shine, golden glow
you must protect the people
from sensei to samurai
It’s time to now say goodbye

I’d like to thank you for everything you’ve given to me
I’ll make you proud, I’m going down in history
It is my destiny to preserve our legacy
we are at war sensei and I’m a war machine
I can’t repay you for the knowledge you bestowed upon me
but I will honour you for as long as I may breathe
I defend the Japanese from invading enemies
give me my sword sensei it’s time for me to leave
(X2)

I moulded you like play-doh
I took you to the plateau
when you were just a small fry
I taught you how to survive
You’ve got that shine, golden glow
you must protect the people
from sensei to samurai
It’s time to now say goodbye
