Wrestlers of Japan is a song from VeggieTales, and it's the first song for Sumo of the Opera.


If you want to know who we are,

We are wrestlers of Japan!

On many a mat and ring!

For many a sumo fan!

Behold The Sumo Champion Wrestler;

A massive gourd and holder of the title.

Many have tried, but none have beaten him;

A fact that is particularly vital."

Defer! Defer!

To the sumo champion wrestler!

Defer! Defer! To the champion, to the champion

To the champion sumo wrestler!
