...Batan Q...

Get on board the U-boat! [x4]

Driving recklessly in the huge sea, yeah!
Gotou's going all out, driving recklessly, yeah!
Doing curves on the water's surface, yeah!
Doing high jumps on the waves, yeah!

This endless story is full of scary things,
But they make us sronger.

Screaming, laughing out loud...
Being in a pinch may bring chances.
The further out we go, the more opens up to us.
You could say it opens up a future for us.

Driving recklessly under the huge sky, yeah!
Shy Gotou is driving recklessly, yeah!
You can blow away your failures, yeah!
Into the water, all the time, yeah!

We get up again and again in this endless story --
That's what makes me love it all the more.

Screaming, laughing out loud...
Until our voices grow hoarse.
The further out we go, the deeper it gets.
You could say this is our love boat.

Get on board the You-boat! [x8]

Screaming, laughing out loud...
Being in a pinch may bring chances.
The further out we go, the more opens up to us.
You could say it opens up a future for us.

Get on board the U-boat! [x6]

...Baton Q...
Oasis Heart3's Notes:
[1] There are FOUR versions of "LOVE COOK": CD only, CD+DVD, CD+Picture Book 1, and CD+Picture Book 2.

[!!] Ryo Owatari (from Do As Infinity & Missile Innovation) plays the electric guitar solo in this song. =)

One more thing: "U-Boat" actually stands for "Unter zee Boot", which is German for "Under Sea Boat". U-Boats were actually submarines that were used during World War II. But in this song, Ai seems to be talking about jet skis, or something like that...

     ...My guess is that she figured, "Hey! I can write 'you-boat' as a pun!"...which is why she used "U-Boat" in the song.
