You're on to Tokyo
You have the yen to trip
The slickest restaurant
For something hip you seize
It's heaven on your knees

You Americano
Up on that Ginza Strip
You pick the best you want
A dish that's Nipponese
You fish the seven seas

Katakana Kanji
Take off your shoes and hat
We order number three
This is our first fugi
You're such a Romeo

Is all so Greek to me
Oh boy you can't do that
I'm feeling worse says she
I mean our first fugu
Arigato Domo

You want the whale think twice
You take the whale instead
For some is paradise
I want to meet the whale
Out on the ocean blue

Look at the whale the price
You take the whale to bed
For me is not so nice
At sea when I set sail
When kokai suru

Maybe at Shokudo
I tell you what we do
Machi oh aru ko o
Da re ka tsu yaku
Wareni kaeru
We get some food to go
Hamburger ta be ru
Ma ku do na ru do
Ka se gu ku ra su
Susumu yasumu

White cocoa palm
In the blaze of sunset
Dim sight of the waves
Like a dream
Forgot the love
Be held by the wind
Rocking little boat

Namini kieru
Saigono kujira
Haruka kanata
Konna kotodewa
Konna kotawa
