Since we're talking Pokémon, here's one of my favorite Japanese songs.

I think it's a shame that so much of the original music was lost when the show was dubbed over. Among the songs that Western audiences never got to hear was this very happy-go-lucky ska number sang by the show's Antagonists.


Maemuki Roketto Dan "Team Rocket, be optimistic"

And here's what it says:

Jessie, James and Meowth: Pappa parapara paraparapara!
Pappa para pappaa!
(Wobbuffet!)
Pappa parapara paraparapara!
Ruh-ray-rookie-Roketto dan!

Jesse and James: We finally make it back to our hideout
A worn out Team Rocket
Meowth: Why were we defeated today?
J&J: Okay!
Jessie: Let the review meeting begin right away!
J&J: Let's glance back to the result of today's fight
Meowth: We should have done this when that happened....
J&J: Okay!
Jessie: Review meeting is hereby completed!
J&J: Five seconds is enough moping time
What's more important is food for tomorrow! YAHOO!

All three of them: Our motivation is rising, rising, rising, rising up!
Hope is facing, facing, facing towards us
Team Rocket, be optimistic!
(Wobbo wobbo, Wobbuffet!)

J&J: Give us more scenes! And longer lines!
Meowth: While you're at it, change the title!
J&J: Yes!
James: "Go Forth, Team Rocket!"
J&J: Someday we'll surely be the lead roles!
And then we'll be superstars!
Meowth: On top of that, we'll have the People's Honour Award!
J&J: Yes! 
James: Go forth, Team Rocket!
J&J: Those are our meager, humble wishes
All our fans, please cheer for us! YAHOO!

All three of them: Team Rocket is creating a bright future!
You can't live without us, Ruh-ray-rookie Roketto dan!

Our motivation is rising, rising, rising, rising up!
Hope is facing, facing, facing towards us
Facing-forward Team Rocket!
(Wobbo wobbo, Wobbuffet!)
Pappa parapara paraparapara
Pappa para pappaa!
Pappa parapara paraparapara
Ruh-ray-rookie Roketto dan!
Team Rocket be Optimistic!
(Wobbuffet!!)

I'll post a better one "Roketto dan yo eien ni" (Team Rocket Forever) which also appeared in the "Jigglypuff song" episode.


The lyrics were written by the guy who came up with Team Rocket, Pokémon scriptwriter Shudo Takeshi. (Brock is named in his honor)
