(Chorus)
I wonder if we know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)
If you see it, AND you mean it,
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
(Repeat)


(Japanese verse)
Hei 'rasshai, omachidou-sama,
Kensou mamire konomachi no ensou
Damattamama ichido tsuite oide,
Sekaiju miryou suruhodoni goukana Japan Ichiban
Jump around, saa uchirano deban
Teriyaki Boyz in the place to be,
Miseteyaru orijinaru(Original) V.I.P.

Many many DIAMONDS DANGLIN'
Bag FULL O' MONEY WE STRANGLIN'
Hate me, FRY me, BAKE Me, TRY ME
ALL The ABOVE cuz you can't GET IN
I don't want NO puroburemu(Problem),
Because me purofesshonaru(Professional)
Make you, Shake your ketsu THANK YOU,
Haters Take it paasonaru(Personal)

(Japanese verse)
Like a Kaneda tai Tetsuo, Neo Tokyo metsubou?
Nakunacchimau mae ni netsu wo hassan shikicchimaouze
Let's go netsubou zuhirugiroppon
Rabo(Lab) kara esukoto(Escort) "Ee!? Sugoi"
Nijyuu-roku(26) gou ja nai, NIGO
Nyuuryoku soru(sol) no zahyou pin-pointo(Pin-point)

(Chorus)
I wonder if you know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)
If you see it, then you mean it,
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)


(Japanese verse)
Hai! Wa-ta-shi-Teriyaki Boy,
"A!"-tto iu ma fukitobasu noizu(Noise)
Manshin shitemasunde,
Getto-ru pen(Pen) no kazu mo fuetemasu
Beeshikku(Basic) wa sapuraizu(Suprise) de,
Maji mainichi ga abunaize!!
Ninja-fuu, Kenja-fuu dakedo Geisha,
BAPE no wakusei kara no shisha

You see me in the parking lot 7-11 is the spot
Fights with wings and, shiny things and
Lions, tigers, bears, oh my Ride
We're furious and fast Supersonic like JJ FAD and,
We ride till the wheels are flat
Can't beat that with a baseball bat

(Japanese verse)
Like a kouan kyuuka, togusa mateba ii,
Zehi soku saiyou, intaaseputaa(Interceptor) shite
Kokusaiteki hanzai wa banzai,
Hora Hands up, fairu(File) ga bomb otosu to odoridasu konya no
4 boys from faasuto kooto(First court),
Dou sasayaku watashi no goosuto(Ghost) wa?

(Chorus)
I wonder if you know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)
If you see it, then you mean it,
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)


(Japanese verse)
Yeah, Japan mainichi dokidoki desu,
Hiito airando(Heat island) "tobitobi" desu
Moeru youshi de "Botiboti nee" temaneki de sasou
"Kocchi kocchi e" hiito appu(Heat up) de odorisou
Machijyuu subette norikomu,
Meccha kawarimono demo shaffuru(Shuffle)!!!!
Gocha gocha no Fast and Furious

It's gotta be the SHOES, Gotta be the FURS
That's Why Ladies CHOOSE ME
All up in the NEWS, cuz we so CUTE
That's why me so HUGE
HARAJUKU GIRLS know how i fiiru(Feel)
They RESPECT cuz I keeps it riaru(Real)
...I'm not a "CHINA-MAN" cuz I ain't from CHINA, MaaaN
I-AM-JAPAN-MAN


WA TA SHI WA TO KI O SU KI
WA TA SHI NO KU RU MA SU TE KI
A NA TA MO TO KI O SU KI

"You see him come and go out of the black Benz SLR."
"I wonder where he get that kind of money?"
"Don't worry about it."
"Let's Go."


(Chorus)
I wonder if you know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)

Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (kita) (Drift, Drift, Drift)

Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)

(Japanese verse)
Welcome, sorry we kept you waitin'
Bustle all over, this city's performance
Just keep quiet and follow us for once
So classy that it fascinates throughout the world
That's Japan, It's Number One
Jump around, Now it's our turn
Teriyaki Boyz in the place to be
We'll show you, our original V.I.P.

Many many DIAMONDS DANGLIN'
Bag FULL O' MONEY, WE STRANGLIN'
Hate me, FRY me, BAKE Me, TRY ME

I don't want NO problems, Because me professional
Make you, Shake your ass, THANK YOU,
Haters Take it personal

(Japanese verse)
Like a Kaneda versus Tetsuo, Neo Tokyo collapse?
Let's give off all the heat before it disappears
Let's go, Ardent desire, "zuhirugi-roppon",
Escort from the lab, "Say what?! Awesome!"
Not No.26, "NIGO"
Input Sol's coordinate on pinpoint

(Chorus)
I wonder if you know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)
If you see it, then you mean it,
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)


(Japanese verse)
Hi! I'm Teriyaki Boy, This noise can blow you away just as you gasp
Well I'm rushin' like crazy, so the number of pens I get goes up as well
Suprise gotta be the basic, everyday's really damn risky
Ninja-style, Sage-style but still a Geisha, A messenger from the planet "BAPE"

You see me in the parking lot 7-11 is the spot
Fights with wings and, shiny things and Lions, tigers, bears, oh my Ride
We're furious and fast Supersonic like JJ FAD and,
We ride till the wheels are flat
Can't beat that with a baseball bat

(Japanese verse)
Like a Public Safety Lesson Nine, "Togusa",
All you gotta do is wait, please instantly adopt, Go on and intercept
Banzai to international crime, come on and put your Hands up,
As soon as the file drops the bomb, tonight's
4 Boys from First Court starts dancin', wonder how my ghost's gonna whisper?

(Chorus)
I wonder if you know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)
If you see it, then you mean it,
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)


(Japanese verse)
Yeah, Japan's everyday throbbin', just like Heat Island's skippin'
With turn-on looks, "So-so, I guess", they beckon' and tempt you
"Over, over here" about to start dancin' with all this heat-up
The whole city slide and join in, doesn't matter if you're a freak, go on and shuffle!!!!
Messed up Fast and Furious

It's gotta be the SHOES, Gotta be the FURS
That's Why Ladies CHOOSE ME
All up in the NEWS, cuz we so CUTE
That's why me so HUGE
HARAJUKU GIRLS know how I feel
They RESPECT cuz I keeps it real
...I'm not a "CHINA-MAN" cuz I ain't from CHINA, MaaaN
I-AM-JAPAN-MAN


I like Tokyo
My car is fantastic
You like Tokyo too
Your car is fantastic

(Girls Talking)
"You see him come and go out of the black Benz SLR."
"I wonder where he get that kind of money?"
"Don't worry about it."
"Let's Go."


(Chorus)
I wonder if you know
How they live in Tokyo (hai!)
If you see it, then you mean it,
Then you know you have to go
Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
Fast and furious (Here it comes) (Drift, Drift, Drift)
(Repeat)
