Maru maru mori mori minna taberuyo
Tsuru tsuru teka teka ashitamo hareru kana?
Wasuremon sunnayo (Mook talking)
Ookiku nattara osora ni koe ga todoku kana?
Itsu ma de demo issho dayo

Maru maru mori mori minna taberuyo
Tsuru tsuru teka teka ashitamo hareru kana?
Kanashikute naiteita hitori aruku kaerimichi
Konna toki honwaka na
Minna ni aitai na

Maru maru mori mori Omajinai dayo
Tsuru tsuru teka teka Nikkori egao
Ichi ni no san shi de goma shio-san

Takusan dato oishii ne

Maru maru mori mori Puka puka ofuro
Tsuru tsuru pika pika Goshi goshi burashi
Mina-san gunnai mata ashita
Asagohan wa nandeshone?

Onaka dashite neruna yo (Mook talking)
Yoku dekimashita (Mook talking)
