Lyrics:さんぽ

あるこう あるこう わたしはげんき
あるくの だいすき どんどんいこう

さかみち トンネル くさっぱら
いっぽんばしに でこぼこじゃりみち
くものすくぐって くだりみち

あるこう あるこう わたしはげんき
あるくの だいすき どんどんいこう

きつねも たぬきも でておいで
たんけんしよう はやしのおくまで
ともだちたくさん うれしいな
ともだちたくさん うれしいな

[Translation]

Stroll

Let's go walking, let's go walking walk. I'm happy.
I like walking very much. Let's go walking and walking.

Down the hill, through the tunnel, across the field,
Across the log bridge, on the bumpy gravel road,
Beneath the spider's web, and down the road.

Let's go walking, Let's go walking, walk. I'm happy.
I like walking very much. Let's go walking and walking.

Foxes and badgers, come on out!
Let's explore in the deep woods.
Look at all my many friends, I'm happy.
Look at all my many friends, I'm happy.
