Japanese Lyrics

Pekin berurin daburin riberia
Taba ni natte wa ni natte
Iran afugan kikasete bararaika

Bijin ariran gamuran razania
Mausu datte ki ni natte
Kibun irebun akusesu tamesou ga

Hirake doa ima wa mou nagaredetara... Ajia

Shiro no panda o dore demo zenbu narabete
Pyua na haato ga yozora de hajike tobisou ni kogayaite iru
Hibana no you ni

Kazan mazeran shanhai mararia
Yoru ni natte netsu ga dete
Tabun honkon mabataku nettaiya

Hirake doa namida nagaretemo afuredetemo ajia

Chizu no ogawa ni seiza o zenbu ukabete
Pyua na haato ga dareka ni meguriaesou ni
Nagasarete yuku mirai no hou e

Shiro no panda o dore demo zenbu narabete
Pyua na haato ga sekai o kazaritsukesou ni kagayaite iru
Ai suru kagiri
Mabataite iru
Ima akusesu rabu


English Version

(Lyrics Note: A "balalaika" is a stringed Russian musical instrument.)

Peking Berlin Dublin Liberia
Wait in a bundle, form a circle
Iran Afghan let us hear the balalaika

Bijin Ariran Gamelan lasagna
Be a mouse or move the cursor
Kibun eleven access, wanna try now?

Open the door the time is now
We are what's happening...Asia

Take every panda and line them all up every single white one
Tonight the pure hearts are shining so bright about to burst into flame
And they glitter and they glow fire flowers in the sky

Kazan Magellan Shanghai Malaria
The heat is on when the night is falling
Tabun Hong Kong blinky whinky all night long

Open the door even if tears should start to fall
Even if there's a flood...Asia

Take all the stars and you see a big map on the Yellow River
Somewhere a pure heart is waiting to meet the other sweetest heartbeat
Breathing day into the night so tomorrow will be bright

Take every panda and line them all up every single white one
Now every pure heart is shining so bright about to burst into flame
And they glitter and they glow
And we all will love them so
In the twinkling of our hearts
Now access love
