There was a ship with hopes and dreams, sailing across the waves with the southern wind
There were smiles and tears that brought together history and roots
In the whole wide world, your being is my pride
Wherever you are, when you sing an island song
You hear the sound of the sanshin echoing on the island
Carried by the wind across seas and skies, your passion will be delivered

The Milky Way sparkles in the night sky, enveloping everyone’s dreams

In the whole wide world, encountering you is an honor

Across the ages, when you hear the beat of the drum
Somewhere on this earth, flags will dance in the air
The moon that catches your dreams will always bathe you
The big rainbow after the rain forms a bridge to the peace-loving you
When you make a wish, your heart always reaches the island
When you sing an island song from wherever you are
You hear the sound of the sanshin resonating around the island
Carried by the wind across seas and skies, your passion will be delivered
