We're models
There's me, there's you (Hoko ten)
In a pedestrian paradise
Where the catwalk got it's claws
A sub-culture, and a kaleidescope of fashion
Prowl the streets of Harjuku (Ira shae mase)

Superlovers, tell me where you got yours
Yohji Yamamoto
I'm hanging with the locals

Where the catwalk got it's claws
All you fashion know-it-alls
With your underground malls
In the world of Harajuku
Putting on a show, when you dress up in your clothes
Wild hair color and cell phones
Your accessories are dead on

[Chorus:Repeat x2]
Harajuku girls, you got the wicked style
I like the way that you are
I am your biggest fan

Harajuku girls
I'm looking at you girls
You're so original girls
You got the look that makes you stand out
Juku girls, I'm looking at you girls
You mix and match it girls
You dress so fly

I'm fascinated by the Japanese fashion scene
Just an American girl in the Tokyo streets
My boyfriend bought me a Hysteric Glamour shirt
They're hard to find in the States, got me feeling couture

What's that you got on
Is it Comme des Garçon
A Vivienne Westwood can't go wrong
Mixed up with second-hand clothes
Flip the landscape when Nigo made A Bathing Ape
I've got oooo! expensive taste
I guess I better save up.


Work it, express it
Live it, command your style
Create it, design it
Now let me see you work it [repeat]

You bring style and color all around the world (you Harajuku girls)
You bring style and color all around the world (you Harajuku girls)

Your lookin' so distinctive, like DNA
Like nothing I've ever seen in the USA
Your underground culture, visual grammar
The language of your clothing, is something to encounter
A ping-pong match between eastern and western
Did you see your inspiration in my latest collection
Just wait til you get your little hands on L.A.M.B.
Cause it's super kao wai, that means super cute in Japanese
The streets of Harajuku are your catwalk
Bishoujo, you're so vogue
That's what you drop (BOOO!)

Shou sai ko Harajuku girls!
(A that's what you drop, a that's what you drop) boo!
Shou sai ko Harajuku girls!

Harajuku girls [chorus in background]
Harajuku girls

Style detached from content
A fatal attraction to cuteness
Style is style
Fashion is fashion
Girl, you got style
