Hello Baby / こんにちは赤ちゃん (konnichi wa akachan)

konnichiwa akachan anata no egao
konnichiwa akachan anata no nakigoe
sono chiisana te tsuburana hitomi
hajimemashite watashi ga MAMA yo

konnichiwa akachan anata no inochi
konnichiwa akachan anata no mirai ni
kono shiawase ga PAPA no nozomi yo
hajimemashite watashi ga MAMA yo

futari dake no ai no shirushi
sukoyaka ni utsukushiku sodate to inoru

konnichiwa akachan onegai ga aru no
konnichiwa akachan tokidoki wa PAPA to
HORA futari dake no shizukana yoru o
tsukutte hoshii no oyasumi nasai
onegai akachan
oyasumi akachan watashi ga MAMA yo
