Tiny Japanese Girl

Published on April 23rd, 2010.

I’m tiny like a door mouse, short like a bungalow house, but I’m pretty big in Tokyo. — That right there would be part of the lyrics of the newly released song Tiny Japanese Girl by Savlonic. If you can get by the lousy lyrics of this song, the artwork is pretty cool! As for the song itself, well, can’t say I’m a huge fan, mainly because of the dude’s voice, but also since I’ve never really liked this classic electro (ish) style.

I don’t know about you, but if I were to add a poll again like I did in the Beckii Cruel post, I’d give this a thumbs down. I wonder if short Japanese girls feel offended…

Lyrics:

Tiny Japanese girl
Your my
Tiny Japanese girl
Tiny Japanese girl
Get out my shoe box girl
I need to put my shoes away.
They’re gonna’ get all scuffed and that
Why you in there girl?
It doesn’t even fit you
I mean you’re small but you’re not a midget girl

CH:
But I’m tiny like a door mouse
Short Like a bungalow house
Minute like a pixie
You can barely even see me
I can ride around on a Shetland pony
And people say
I’m far away
(Well you are quite small)
But I’m pretty big in Tokyo.

V:
Tiny Japanese girl
When I’m stood next to you
You make me feel so tall
Though I’m just 5′ 2″
It’s like I’m stood on a wall
Or a really big dog
But it’s just that you’re small
So there’s no need for that dog

Tiny Japanese Girl
I find you perfectly sized
And you fit in small places
When you’re needing to hide
But don’t hide from my love
‘Cos it’s hunting you down
I know you’ve got a big heart
I’ve seen you wheel it around

CH:
But I’m tiny like a door mouse
Short Like a bungalow house
Minute like a pixie
You can barely even see me
I can ride around on a Shetland pony
And people say
I’m far away
(I’m far away)
But I’m pretty big in Tokyo
Pretty big in Tokyo
I’m pretty big in Tokyo

Yeah…

Oh and of course, thanks to Dean for sending this to me! ;)

    I gotta disagree: me likey. Of course, I love electro-pop and this fits very nicely in that genre. I do see your point about the guy’s voice: to me, its not good but its not bad either. Anyway, thanks for the link! I will play this on my next radio show.

      I like electro-pop too, but more Perfume-like I guess^^ Glad I could be of use!

    Oh god, I couldn’t make it past the first verse… Who is responsible for this?

      Haha, some weird guy from California…

    Like shiruko99, I didn’t get passed “shoebox”. Simply put: this is dumb. Flaffer… “me likely”? I pretty sure trying to explain to you how offensive that was wouldn’t get through to you, so I’m not going to bother.

    • http://www.yonasu.com yonasu

      Yeah it is a bit offensive isn’t it? But then again, it’s not like it’s really serious so you shouldn’t be offended :P

    The lyrics to this are horrible and the video wasn’t much better, though I admit I only watched the first 20 seconds of it.

    I guess anything can pass as music these days.

      Please list and preferably link to some quality lyrics for comparison, smart alec. Maybe you did, I only read the first 31 characters.

    Those animation skills could have been put to better use than that offensive clip. Is the purpose of this to point out that Asians are smaller than us? Yah, no one knew that…

    Tis’ by Savlonic. Check out their first song (the videos for both songs are by Weebl), “Electro Gypsy” on WeeblsStuff.com! The whole thing is just meant to be humorous. You may wish to watch other Weebls Stuff videos to get the point that this is meant to be taken quite literally (the girl is smaller than a shoebox). Don’t let this tarnish my name, though. I just want to let you know that this is not meant to be taken offensively. Oh, and watch the WHOLE VIDEO BEFORE COMMENTING ON IT! Anyways, I was a little afraid that this would be taken literally when I checked Weebl’s Stuff and first watched it. PS- I do not know any of the people in Savlonic or at Weebl’s Stuff personally, I just watch the videos.

      I get that you’re not supposed to take it seriously, but unfortunately there are always people who will.

    Oh, by the way, Savlonic is a British Band. Weebl is British as well. I’m American (currently). So, no. It wasn’t anyone from California.

      Oh I see, it said California on MySpace so I thought that was it^^

    I don’t think anyone should take it seriously. I think it’s cute!

    I agree that there are people that will. But to those people, I say “let thyself be enlightened! Look upon WeeblsStuff.com and knowledge will cross thy path (not really)”

    LOL stupid lyrics, but made me laugh, the music I found was nothing special. You can probably make the instrumental in a few hours with Magics Music Maker, or similar.
    PV graphics look nice.

    I think it’s excellent – I love the 80s ish electro-ness…
    It’s easy for me to say this, but it feels completely innocent in its subject matter..
    it’s fun.

    Reminds me of the idiots that complained about the “Lip my stocking” scene in Lost in translation.
