English Lyrics

Come and join us in a melody,
A song of happiness for you and me.
Sing of joy, sing about a boy,
Little hero, Astro Boy!

Come and join us in a fantasy,
We can all be heroes, you and me.
Sing of joy, sing about a boy,
Little hero, Astro Boy!

Lighting up the way for all,
For soon he will fight for right,
Strong as steel and with a heart of gold.

Sing of glory,
Pour your heart our,
Your voices will be heard,
And it’s raining out with love for all.
