The lyrics of Yokohama-shi song
Our Japan is island (my fire is island)
In the morning sun kagayo sea (asahikagayoumini)

chirarihorarito ritsu terishitokoro (chirarihoraritotaterishitokoro)
Now thigh ship thigh Chifune (ship paying both pike conger and ship now)
Look at place to stay; yoya (tomarutokorozomiyoya)
Prosper without ka; and line kurammi charges (hatenakusakaeteyukurammiyoo)
