asia-3958966_1920

Toilets in Japan are dangerous, please be aware

If you’re not careful, three spirits you’ll meet

Don’t summon the Yōkai, not even on a dare

Toilets in Japan are dangerous, please be aware

If the door swings open, it’s too late to retreat

Toilets in Japan are dangerous, please be aware

If you’re not careful, three spirits you’ll meet

 

Pale young girl in an old red dress

Hanako-san, Hanako-san, are you there?

Third stall to the left is where she’ll coalesce

Pale young girl in an old red dress

Drag you to hell or dismember you there

Pale young girl in an old red dress

Hanako-san, Hanako-san, are you there?

 

Have you seen my legs? Teke-Teke asks from the floor

The woman stands on her hands with no lower half

She waits as she watches from under the door

Have you seen my legs? Teke-Teke asks from the floor

Answer wrong and she’ll cut you in half

Have you seen my legs? Teke-Teke asks from the floor

The woman stands on her hands with no lower half

 

Red paper or blue is the option that he’ll state

Ako Manto, masked and adorned in a long red cape

Choose blue and you’ll be strangled ‘til you suffocate

Red paper or blue is the option that he’ll state

Red and your back is flayed ‘til it hangs like a drape

Red paper or blue is the option that he’ll state

Ako Manto, masked and adorned in a long red cape

 

Bathrooms in Japan are dangerous, you have been warned

The lesson is simple, do your business at home

Killed by a ghost, a ghost you’ll be reborn

Bathrooms in Japan are dangerous, you have been warned

Don’t become an angry soul left to wander and roam

Bathrooms in Japan are dangerous, you have been warned

The lesson is simple, do your business at home
