Full VersionEdit

Now, Hurry! Comin’ Fantasy! 夢を探してる 捜査線はヤブのなか
きらきら光る 意思は 磨かなきゃ 風化してくだけ
More, Boogie-Woogie! Wonder Line!
鼓動が波間で グラマラスな熱になる
言葉にならない予感 渦巻いて 胸が騒ぎだす 夏が色めきだす

青春群像劇には 縁のない はずなのに
まるで「ギミック」「トリック」「ゴシップ」「ステップ」
総動員して 身を揺らせ 楽しんで
さぁ 今 JAZZY でFUNNYな 即興で セッション! ここに始まる Play!

キミと私とで ファンタスティック! 1度きりだけの Boy Meets Girl
シュガーとスパイス ごちゃまぜに ジャイブして
まだ 止めないで スキャンダル!「これからが最上級」って
神様のシナリオ 超えて 走りだしてく Go Round!

なんだ かんだ Do You Understand!?「チェックメイトまで」

Now, Hurricane Fantasy! 縦横無尽に
ハジケ飛ぶよ ポップコーンラバー
無邪気な表情で ココロ乱すのは 罪深き太陽
More, Boogie-Magic! Tender Line!
揺れるカゲロウが 妄想を駆り立ててく
クラクラさせる隙に 何もかも 思い通りになる?
変わってくリアライズ

整合性とか要らない 願うまま あるがまま
そんな「ナニが、ドウで、コウで、ドーナッツってんの?」って
無粋だわ 訊かないで
さぁ ほら SUNNY でBUNNYな テンションで ライドオン!
夏のド真ん中 Fly!

キミと私との ドラスティック! 出逢いこそ 未知のSuddenly
ビターとスイート 唇で シェイクして
もう 気づいてる!? シューティングスター 瞬く間
過ぎ去ってく
オトナになる前に 交わす約束はきっと So Tight!

フェイクのはずが リアル以上に リアルに感じる
一途なキセキ 待ち受ける世界
ずっと これから 一緒なら 続くでしょ?

キミと私とで ファンタスティック! 1度きりだけの Boy Meets Girl
シュガーとスパイス ごちゃまぜに ジャイブして
まだ 止めないで スキャンダル!「これからが最上級」って
神様のシナリオ 超えて 走りだしてく Go Round!

Now, Hurry! Comin' Fantasy! The investigation is at a standstill!
If you don't keep polishing your glistening intentions, they'll only fade from here on out
More, Boogie-Woogie! Wonder Line!
Our heart beats reach a glamorous heat amongst the waves!
A premonition I can't put into words is stirring - my chest goes wild and summer is filled with color!

I thought I wouldn't ever be involved in the drama of a youthful crowd,
But this is like "gimmicks","tricks","gossips" and "steps"-
So get your whole body involved, shake it up, and have some fun!
Right now were having a jazzy, funny, impromptu session! Everything starts here: Play!

You and me together are fantastic! A once in a lifetime "Boy meets Girl",
So mix that sugar and spice, then make a messy jive!
Please don't put an end to this scandal! "From here on out, everything'll be of the highest grade!"
We'll go beyond God's scenario and keep on running - go round!

More or less, do you understand? "This is gonna go until checkmate!"

Now, Hurricane Fantasy! In all directions,
We're gonna fly, Popcorn Lover! Disturbing our hearts with an innocent expression, is a sinful sun!
More, Boogie-Magic! Tender Line!
The swimming heat haze spurs these delusions on,
And in the space of that dizziness,everything goes out as planned?
The things we realize begin to change...

There's no need for consistency - proceed as you wish; as you are!
That kinda,"What- how- like this- 'donut'you think so?"
Is so inelegant... Don't ask me those things!
C'mon let's ride on with a sunny, bunny tension!
Let's fly to the very middle of this summer!

What we have between us is drastic! Our meeting is the ultimate unknown "suddenly",
Using our lips to shake up this bitter and sweet!
Have you noticed yet!? That shooting star passes us by,
In a twinkling instant!
Before we become adults, the promise we make will be so tight!

What I thought was fake now feels more real than reality!
This wholehearted miracle - the world awaiting us,
Will keep on going as long as we're together, right?

You and me together are fantastic! A once in a lifetime "Boy meets Girl",
So mix that sugar and spice, then make a messy jive!
Please don't put an end to this scandal! "From here on out, everything'll be of the highest grade!"
We'll go beyond God's scenario and keep on running - go round!

More or less, do you understand? "This is gonna go until checkmate!"
