Song Parody: You Say You Want a Kaizen Culture

2

John ToussaintWith apologies to The Beatles and Dr. John Toussaint:

“Kaizen Culture” (sung to “Revolution” by The Beatles)

 

You say you want a kaizen culture
Well, you know
We all want to change our work
You tell me that it's evolution
Well, you know
We all want to improve the work
But when you talk 'bout suggestion boxes
Don't you know that you can count me out
Don't you know it's gonna be kaizen
kaizen, kaizen

You say you got a real solution
Well, you know
We'd all love to see the plan (do study act, plan do study act)
You ask me for a contribution
Well, you know
We're doing what we can
But when you only want money
from people (just ROI)
All I can tell is brother you have to wait
Don't you know it's gonna be kaizen
kaizen, kaizen
Ah

ah, ah, ah, ah, ah…

You say you'll change the workplace culture
Well, you know
We all want to change your head
You tell me it's the current system
Well, you know
You better free your mind instead
But if you go carrying pictures of John Toussaint
You ain't going to make it with anyone anyhow
Don't you know it's gonna be kaizen
kaizen, kaizen
kaizen, kaizen, kaizen
kaizen, kaizen, kaizen
