“I wanna Japanese you” …

No seriously. This is a line from the Train song Breakfast in Bed.

Why did I dedicate a post entirely to that line in that song?

Aside from the fact that the lead singer of Train is from my hometown (moment of bragging over…), I want to know what that line means.

Am I being naive and totally missing some implied meaning?

Is it just a cute rhyme?

Anyone know what it means?

    • No, sorry. It’s the biggest thing that brings people to my blog but no one has answered and I haven’t found it anywhere else. If you find it, let me know.

  1. I found this….

    “I wanna Japanese you” is a reference to the Japanese practice of bathing communally. It comes from usage in the classic 1970’s book and TV mini-series “Shogun” by James Clavell, where British sailors were bathed by Japanese women, a treat.

    • Thank you! That’s still the thing that brings the most people to my blog for some reason so I’m very, very glad to have an answer. Finally!

      Strangely enough, I recently found that book in my parents’ garage but haven’t go around to reading it…
