English Lyrics

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
