It sounds like a pacifist version of a fascist rally song ... Rommel's "boys"
used to sing one that began, "Wir sind die Deutsches Afrika Korps" and it
went downhill toward El Alamein from there . . .



___________ We have seamanship, seamanship,

Seamanship for love!

We have seamanship, seamanship,

Seamanship for peace!

(Spoken in Japanese)

We like Japan.

We like peace.

The Maritime Self-Defense Force."
