Japanese Lyrics 
  Romanji Lyrics

  English Translation

海は広いな 大きいな
月が昇るし 日が沈む

海は大波 青い波
揺れてどこまで続くやら

海にお船を 浮かばせて
行ってみたいな よその国


 

umi wa hiroi na, okii na
tsuki ga noboru shi, hi ga shizimu

umi wa oonami, aoinami
yurete doko made tsuzuku yara

umi ni ofune o ukabasete
itte mitaini yoso no kuni

 

The ocean is wide, big
the moon climbs from the ocean, the sun sets down to the ocean

the ocean is big waves, blue waves
rocking, where will it end

we put the boat on the ocean
we want to go to other countries
