I have heard about the songs of Os, I saw the lilting Gaels
The voices of Bulgaria I love, I listened to the sound of the whales

I read about the sound of Jericho, I played trumpet in Rio Grande
But all I´m really longing for is a j__anese rock ´n roll-band

I have heard the angels sing, please do not misunderstand
But never I´ve heard and never I´ve seen a j__anese rock ´n roll band

I´ve been to Jokohama, I´ve been to Sapporo
Morioka, Kiushu, Oshima-Island
I have eaten sushi, I have tasted wan-chong-sou
Will I ever find my j__anese rock-band

I haven´t found what I´m looking for, to Munich in Bavaria I went
Suddenly I saw musicians around from a j__anese rock ´n roll-band

Here I come, here I go all the way to Tokyo
With my harp and my guitar in my hand
And I look through the haze of this burning summer days
For a j__anese rock ´n roll-band

Here I come, here I go all the way from Tokyo
With my harp and my guitar in my hand
Oh my God, I cried, a Bavarian night
With a j__anese rock ´n roll-band

Here I come, here I go all the way from Tokyo
With my harp and my guitar in my hand
And I stamp my feet to the rhythm of the beat
Of a j__anese rock ´n roll-band

Here I come, here I go all the way from Tokyo
With my harp and my guitar in my hand
Now I´m playing my gong and I´m singing my songs
In my j__anese rock ´n roll-band

Here I come, here I go all the way from Tokyo
With my harp and my guitar in my hand
Now I am a star of the Nippon Boulevard
And my j__anese rock ´n roll-band
