A Music Video by Paul White for the song  « Big In Japan » from Tom Waits’ Mule Variations CD. I just wanted to share with you this vid, as there are some big times in it. And when I say big, I mean Godzilla Big and King Kong big ! So it is really really big. It starts with New Orleans girls and after a few seconds we are in Japan. And for the first time, I can speak of Japan without saying the word strange. Though most of us might consider than mixing Godzilla, King Kong and Tom Waits in the same video is strange . Too bad, I failed once more.

And here are the Lyrics :

I got the style but not the grace
I got the clothes but not the face
I got the bread but not the butter
I got the winda but not the shutter

But Im big in japan Im big in japan but heh Im big in japan

I got the house but not the deed
I got the horn but not the reed
I got the cards but not the luck
I got the wheel but not the truck

But heh Im big in japan Im big in japan Im big in japan

I got the moon I got the cheese I got the whole damn nation
On its knees I got the rooster I got the crow
I got the ebb I got the flow

I got the powder but not the gun
I got the dog but not the bun
I got the clouds but not the sky
I got the stripes but not the tie

But heh Im big in japan Im big in japan Im big in japan

Heh ho they love the way I do it
Heh ho theres really nothing to it

I got the moon I got the cheese
I got the whole damn nation on their knees
I got the rooster I got the crow
I got the ebb I got the flow

I got the sizzle but not the steak
I got the boat but not the lake
I got the sheets but not the bed
I got the jam but not the bread

But heh Im big in japan Im big in japan Im big in japan
Im big in japan, Im big in japan
