(Let's go!
Wooh!!...)

Houkago ni natte seimon no mae de
Anata to machiawase no
Yakusoku narande kaeru
Hansode SHATSU (Shirt)
Fureru suhada

Konogoro wa chotto nebusoku gimi da yo
Me o tojiru to kao ga
Ukabu kara denwa no ato wa...
Donna fuu ni
Konna koi wa hatten suru no?

Daisuki nante sakende mitai
Mada "mada" tsukiatta bakari dakedo
Saisho no kimochi daiji ni shimasho
Sou ne "sou yo" yukkuri to aseranaide

Aa  mabushii manazashi
Mune o kyunto shimetsukeru yo

Natsu kusa ga sora e nobidashita kawara
BOOTO (Boat)-noriba no [1]
BENCHI (Bench) koshi kake
Hanashikondari ne...
Yuugure made
Kizukanaide tada tanoshikute

Nee natsuyasumi kuru koro futari
Motto "motto" suteki ni naretara ii ne
Daitan na koto hitori kangae
Demo "demo" KISU (Kiss) sae mo shiranai kuse ni

Aa  yuuhi ni terasare
Kao ga pootto akaku naru yo

(short dialogue) [2]

Daisuki nante sakende mitai
Mada "mada" tsukiatta bakari dakedo
Saisho no kimochi daiji ni shimasho
Sou ne "sou yo" yukkuri to aseranaide

Nee natsuyasumi kuru koro futari
Motto "motto" suteki ni naretara ii ne
Daitan na koto hitori kangae
Demo "demo" KISU (Kiss) sae mo shiranai kuse ni

Aa  yuuhi ni terasare
Kao ga pootto akaku naru yo

(Let's go!
Wooh!!...)

We promise to meet
After school at the main gate,
And go home side by side.
You're wearing a short-sleeved shirt --
I can touch your skin...

I don't think I've been getting
Enough sleep lately --
After you call me,
When I close my eyes, I see you...
How will this love turn out?

I want to scream "I love you!",
Even though we've only just "just" got together.
Let's treasure these first feelings,
Yeah, "yeah", take it slow, no rushing...

Ah, your bright gaze
Make my heart tighten...

By the river where the summer grass
Has grown as high as the sky,
We sit down on a bench
By the docks and chat... [1]
Not even noticing the sun go down,
Just having fun...

I hope things between us become even more wonderful
When the summer holidays come --
I'm thinking such bold thoughts by myself,
Even though "though" I've never even been kissed.

Ah, the evening sun shines on your face,
Turning it bright red...

Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[!!] "Saisho" can mean "early" or "first". I chose to interpret it as "first" (because the girl[s] sound very young, and probably have never been in love before). And Kiwi Musume said that "first" is an okay interpretation. =)

     Also, there are 21 girls in Checkicco, but only 19 of them are on the "Saisho no Kimochi" cover (so quite possibly, only 19 of them could be singing this song). But sadly, I don't which 2 girls are missing, so I apologize!! >_<



[1] "BOOTO-noriba" means "boat docks". So Kiwi Musume just got rid of the "boat" part, because it's not really necessary.

[2] Right after this verse, there's an instrumental break and some dialogue (which is spoken in English). Unfortunately, I can't hear/understand everything, but here's what I could pick out:

Girl 1:  Hey girls. You ????
Group: Uh-huh...
Girl 1:  All right. Anyway, we'll always walk in the sunshine!
Group: Yeeees!!!
