High! Broadcasting from school,
burger in one hand, feeling hungry everyday
It’s not yet enough, my dreams are large-sized
Come on, switch On

Retro-future—those are rejected!
An image I just thought of, blast off to the future
There is no meaning to formulas

Don’t think you know just by listening to people
Challenge boldly, toughly

Destroy the confines with your own hands
(Wow wow wow Switch ON)
Step up higher than yesterday
Go-Win! Go-Win! My friends
Break through even the atmosphere
(Wow wow wow Switch ON)
Countdown to the start of the journey
Unstopping, growing, thrilling schooldays!

Wow wow wow (Fourze!)
Wow wow wow (OH YEAH!)

Yes! I’m Spring-ING; fearing nothing,
that is my engine
No one can stop me, not reading the atmosphere
Come on, switch on

The unknown is so good, it fires up the mood
Apollo Space Shuttle, Hayabusa, Hubble,
Rockets of textbook doodles

Not just seeing, but an interactive attraction
Follow me boys and girls

Common sense is determined by someone on their own
(Wow wow wow Switch ON)
Stick out and rank up
Go-Win! Go-Win! My friends
Linking with the only one called you
(Wow wow wow Switch ON)
Countdown to freedom
Daily worries, growing, super electrifying schooldays!

Because an end will come one day to things started
With your all in the time limited to “now”…Run up

Destroy the confines with your own hands
(Wow wow wow Switch ON)
Step up higher than yesterday
Go-Win! Go-Win! My friends
Break through even the atmosphere
(Wow wow wow Switch ON)
Countdown to the start of the journey
Unstopping, growing, thrilling,
Daily worries, growing, super wonderful schooldays!

Wow wow wow (Fourze!)Wow wow wow (Let’s go!)
Wow wow wow (Fourze!) Wow wow wow (FOURZE YEAH!)
