Japanese Lyrics

Ima sugu tonikaku dokoka e ikitai na
Dokoka de kakuyasu ticket te ni irete
Bag ni mizugi to T-shirt tsumekonde
Passport to tonikaku video wa wasurezu ni

Kitto tabun ima no uchi
Matomete yasumi wa tori mashou
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Jibun e no go-houbi

Konnani shiawase bakari ga tsuzuku no mo
Chiyahoya sareru no mo

Kitto tabun ima no uchi
Wakai no wa ima no uchi
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Omoide zukuri
Maa iika

Mezase resort
Koi no romance
Deai no chance

Ima sugu tonikaku dokoka e ikitai na
Umi ni wa deai no chance ga aru to iu
Ikashita ereki no rhythm ga kikoetara
Su ey mu de su ey mu de su ey mu de odori mashou

Kitto tabun ima no uchi
Hiyake ga niau o-toshigoro
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Moriagaru doyoubi

Konnani nandaka nombiri dekiru no mo
Ikinuki dekiru no mo

Kitto tabun ima no uchi
Wakai no wa ima no uchi
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Shiawase sagashi
Mou iika

Mezase resort
Koi no romance
Deai no chance
English Translation

I wanna go somewhere right now, anyway
Get hold of a cheap ticket somewhere
Shove some swimsuits and T-shirts into your bag
And donft forget your passport and a video

Surely, probably, now
Let's get go on vacation together
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
A reward for ourselves

I'm so happy and it keeps on going
I'm being spoilt

Surely, probably, now
We're only young for now
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Making memories
Hey, is this good enough?

Find a resort
A love romance
A chance to meet someone

I wanna go somewhere right now, anyway
They say the beach gives you a chance to meet someone
When we hear the great electric guitar rhythms
Letfs dance like we're swimming, swimming, swimming

Surely, probably, now
A suntan suits our age
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Having fun on Saturday

Getting to be as lazy as this
Is a break for us

Surely, probably, now
We're only young for now
V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N
Looking for happiness
Is this enough?

Find a resort
A love romance
A chance to meet someone

Find a resort
A love romance
A chance to meet someone
