"HAKU SEI HAKU SEI HAKU SEI SEI
HAKU SEI HAKU SEI HAKU SEI SEI"

The 'haku sei' chant (best I could make of it by ear) doesn't appear in the official lyrics. Neither does the 'response' from the background chorus, but I believe that to be the 'Yoi yassa' chant.

Obrigado Io for helping to romanize the hard kanji.
