Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tayorinakute  nasakenai
Totemo yuumei  yowasugite
Mukashi wa totemo  tsuyokatta?  Sonna uwasa mo  aru keredo
Ima wa tottemo  yowai n da  kanashii kurai ni  yowai n da

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Utterly hopeless and pathetic
Infamous for its exceeding weakness
Was it really strong in ancient times? Those are as the rumour have it
Now it's just super weak; so weak that it's seriously sad 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yowai POKEMON  KOIKINGU  sekai de ichiban  yowai yatsu
Yowai POKEMON  KOIKINGU  amari no yowasa  SHOKKINGU

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The weak Pokémon, Magikarp - the weakest one in all the world
The weak Pokémon, Magikarp - the depth of its weakness is shocking

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tonikaku haneru  yoku haneru
Haneru dake de  yama koeru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Granted, it can jump and splash quite well
So much so that it can jump over mountains

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Doushite haneru  iminaku haneru  BATORU de hanete mo  nani mo nai
Choushi ni notte  hanetsudzuke  toki ni PIJON ni  tsukamaru yo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Why jump and splash? Doing so is pointless, as using Splash does nothing in battle
They can be so absorbed in jumping, that sometimes a Pidgeotto will carry them away

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Haneru POKEMON  KOIKINGU  sekai de ichiban  haneru yatsu
Haneru POKEMON  KOIKINGU  itsumo pitapita  JAMPINGU

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The jumping Pokémon, Magikarp - the best splasher in all the world
The jumping Pokémon, Magikarp - always noisily splashing around

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Donna basho demo  mazu tsureru
Boro no tsurizao de  tsuresugiru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You catch them anywhere at all
With an Old Rod, you just keep fishing them out

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Umi  kawa  yogoreta mizutamari  donna mizu demo  SUIMINGU
Yurui kawa demo  nagasareru  dokoka ni dekiteru  koidamari

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Ocean - rivers - muddy pools - they'll swim in whatever water
Swept away even in gentle streams, schools of them turning up in places

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tsureta to omottara  KOIKINGU  KYATCHI ANDO RILIISU?  Shichau sugu?

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If you hook a Magikarp, will you catch and then release it? Do so right away?
If you hook a Magikarp, will you catch and later eat it? That's absurd!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Kinpika gouka  iro chigai
Zenzen nakami  kawaranai

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
There are Shiny Magikarp with brilliant golden scales
Inside though, they're the same as any other 

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
GYARADOSU shinka de  mecha tsuyoi  soko made matsu no  mecha tsurai
Oyaji ga utteta  gohyaku-en!  Henpin dekinai  HAPUNINGU!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Evolved into a Gyarados, they're extremely strong; waiting for them to level is extremely hard
An old man sells them for 500 yen! It turns out that he doesn't accept any refunds!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Zannen POKEMON  KOIKINGU  hito ni agete mo  BUUINGU
Zannen POKEMON  KOIKINGU  ki ni shita koto nai  RANKINGU

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The disappointing Pokémon, Magikarp - even when given to people, they're booing it
The disappointing Pokémon, Magikarp - it doesn't care at all about its ranking

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Boku no POKEMON  KOIKINGU  boku wa sono mama  sodateru yo
Boku no POKEMON  KOIKINGU  roppiki soroete  FAITINGU

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You're my Pokémon, Magikarp - I'll train you exactly as you are
You're my Pokémon, Magikarp - I'll make a team of six for battles

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Minna koi suru  KOIKINGU  sekai de ichiban  suki na yatsu
Koi ni koi suru  KOIKINGU  kimi ni sasageru  LABU SONGU

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
We all love you, Magikarp - you're the most adored in all the world
I love loving you, Magikarp - that's why I'm writing this love song just for you

"Haneru", among other things, can mean to "jump" or "splash". I was undecided as to which to translate it as. On the one hand, "Splash" has long been the name of the infamous move. On the other, there is an entire app game devoted to Magikarp's ability to jump. Neither are wrong. You decide.
