Lyrics from
moshi moshi kame yo kame-san yo
sekai no uchi ni omae hodo
ayumi no noroi mono wa nai
doushite sonna ni noroi no ka

Lyrics from
Hello there, Tortoise, Mr. Tortoise
There isn't anyone in the world
Who walks as slowly as you do
Why is it that you're so slow?

Lyrics from
nanto ossharu usagi-san
sonnara omae to kakekurabe
mukou no koyama no fumoto made
dochira ga saki ni kaketsuku ka

Lyrics from
Mr. Hare says that
He'll have a race with you
To the base of the far away hill
Where did he run ahead to?

Lyrics from
donna ni kame ga isoide mo
douse ban made kakaru darou
kokora de chitto hito nemuri

Lyrics from
No matter how fast the turtle goes
I won't see him until evening at best
I'll take a little nap here
Snore, snore, snore, snore

Lyrics from
kore wa nesugita shikujitta
anmari osoi usagi-san
sakki no jiman wa doushita no

Lyrics from
He messed up and slept too much
Hop, hop, hop, hop
Hop, hop, hop
Mr. Hare is too late
What happened to his pride from before?
