Nancy Nova Made In Japan

When I was a pre-teen, I used to go bonkers over this new-wave novelty song by Nancy Nova rattling off Japanese products and company names. But the decidely un-PC chorus is something that would probably never fly today. To wit:
Nissan! Datsun! Japanese-y!
Panasonic! Mitsubishi!
Take your business nice and easy!
Ah, so it goes!
Akai! Sanyo! Teac! Sony!
Yamaha, ha! Nice head phone-y!
Nikon for your one and only!
Get one of those!
Kawasaki, ride it solo!
Sukiyaki! Nice kimono!
Honda bike-y! Yoko Ono!
Everyone knows...
Buy one of those...
How well it goes...
Lucky you chose...
Something with that name MADE IN JAPAN!
