Japanese/Kanji Lyrics Romanized Lyrics Translated Lyrics


Teppen o mawaru to ugomeku gyoukaijin
Yume o yoku no baataa to omotteru
Mou panpii nante yobasenai!
Kibou o mune ni ikiru dareka no shaku…FIKKUSU de mamorou!

Past the top position[1] the showbiz monsters[2] start squriming
They think dreams tag along with greed[3]
Don't call us commoners[4] anymore!
The length[5] everyone goes to live with hope in their hearts...We'll protect them firmly![6]


SHIITAKU roihii zagin de beeruta shiisuu
Atarimae ni ubatte iru…minna no omoi o tsumanderu
Nee, mikireteru yo? Warudakunde irun desho?
Sono kikaku damedashite okurairi ni shichau yo!

They take away and steal[9] everyone's feelings like nothing
Hey, I can see you there[10]. You're plotting something bad, aren't you?
We disapprove[11] your projects! We'll put them on hold![12]

ZETTAI バミラせたりしない
Let's Go!未来のゴールデンタイム

MAGIC de BLACK na yoru o maite ikun da
Akugyou nante ne ketsukacchin
ZETTAI bamirasetari shinai
Unmei no tachi ichi wa jibun de ita tsuku
Let's Go! Mirai no GOORUDEN TAIMU
RATEran o kagayakasete

We'll definitely make a breakthrough!![13]
Dashing[14] through the totally black[15] night by magic,
I will punish your guilt by spanking the hip.[16]
We definitely won't let anyone decide[17]
Our fates on where we stand on stage[18] are on our own decision.
Let's go! To the future's golden time[19]
Shining on newspaper's TV and radio program guides[20]
"Twinkle Rhythm"


Hito no OFUREKO sarashite warai
Muchaburi shitoite shirouto atsukai, ageku ni onamidachoudai
Nee, kanashimi wa otsukare-chan de ii...CHANNERU o kaeyou!

Exposing other people's off-the-record[21] and laughing
Asking unreasonable requests[22] and treating us like amateurs[23], at last, trying to make it a moving story
Hey, let's say goodbye[24] to the sadness... change the channel!


KUROSU NETTO de tsunaida omoi
Akiramenai kimochi ga ne...KIIkyoku ni narun da
Deochi nanka de owarase wa shinai
Seigi o SUPONSAA ni shite tekoire de shikuyoro!

These feelings connected by cross-net[25]
The feeling of never giving up...it will be the key[26]
We won't end at the beginning[27]
Let the justice be our sponsor. We'll fix the mistakes[28]; You'd better be prepared[29]!

ZETTAI 押すなと言われたって押す
Knock Down 悪の背中!

Hissatsu no ichigeki o zubatto hanatsun da
Musou shichau hodo no ippatsu gei!
ZETTAI osu na to iwaretatte osu
Mushiro kuigimi ni oshite iku
Knock Down aku no senaka!
Smile ga hoshii kara

We'll definitely make a breakthrough!!
Fire straight to the point with a critical hit
Enough to make this one-shot performance[30] beyond comparison
We'll definitely push[31] even if you tell us not to
Rather push not letting you finish[32]
We'll knock down the backs of evil!
Because we want the smile of people
"Twinkle Rhythm"


Suuji dake o oimotometeru sekai ga
Kowarete iku ashioto ga kikoetan da
Kore ja kitto uchikiri tte...
Sonna no yurusenai yo, taisetsu na egao no tame ni

The world pursued only the numbers
We heard the footsteps of its destroying
I'm sure this is the end[33]...
We won't forgive such things; for the smiles we cherished
We must fight!

ZETTAI バミラせたりしない
ジーマー 未来のプライムタイム

MAGIC de BLACK na yoru o maite ikun da
PINCHI no yotei o barashiteku
ZETTAI bamirasetari shinai
Unmei no tachi ichi wa jibun de ita tsuku
Jiimaa mirai no PURAIMU TAIMU
Issho ni tsukutte ikou yo!

We'll definitely make a breakthrough!!
Dashing through the totally black night by magic,
We shall cancel those dangerous plots[34]
We definitely won't let anyone decide
Our fates on where we stand on stage are on our own decision.
Definitely[35], future's prime-time[36]
Let's make them together!
