I went down to my tailor
To get myself a suit and to measure
It's been a long, long time since
I looked like a gentlemen of leisure

He spent an awful lot of time on my inside leg
You don't get that kind of treatment
When you buy stuff off the peg
When I finally picked it up and saw the label inside
I saw a sight that made my mouth gape open wide

It said, 'Made in Japan'
Made in Japan, there ain't nothing
Made here in this country anymore
Try the 'Made in Japan, Hong Kong or Singapore'
Made in Japan

I went along to the showroom
To buy myself a secondhand car
I didn't have much money
So I knew I wouldn't get very far

The salesman said
How much do you intend to spend
You only get what you pay for in the end
He said, You can't afford a Bentley or a Cadillac
But take a look at this motor I've got out the back

It was made in Japan
Made in Japan, there ain't nothing
Made here in this country anymore
Try the 'Made in Japan, Hong Kong or Singapore'
Made in Japan

Me and my girl last week
We went to church and got wed
I didn't bother cost so
I decided I'd get married instead

We went to Miami for the honeymoon
I couldn't wait to get her in the hotel room
But when she came out of the bathroom
My knees turned to jelly
Well I saw what she had tattooed just below her belly

It said, 'Made in Japan'
Made in Japan, there ain't nothing
Made here in this country anymore
Try the 'Made in Japan, Hong Kong or Singapore'
Made in Japan, made in Japan, made in Japan
Made in Japan
