This video came about from a collaboration between The War Ponies (Gio and Diana in NYC) and UKESTAR (Max, Lee and Yoshimura-san in Japan). We were planning to visit Japan in August 2010 to meet our ukulele friends. But Max had a better idea: make a music video. We emailed tracks back and forth until we had a complete song. Then we shot this video while we were in Japan. This edit is my version.

Don't forget to check out Max's version here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWodij...

verse 1:
High up on the holy mountain, I sharpen my ancient axe.
The goblins and the demon frogs are preparing to attack.

We are the warriors of warfare,
With rock in our souls and our swords in the air.
We are the warriors of warfare,
Riding on our ponies, so evil beware.

verse 2:
When the dead rise in darkest night, the demons and obake,
I raise up my shining blade and turn them into teriyaki.
Goblin teriyaki.

Japanese rap:
払いたまえ 清めたまえ 神ながら 守りたまえ 幸わえたまえ

Music by Max.
