Lyrics

Ai yai yai
Ai yai yai
Ai yai yai
Where's my samurai?

I'm searching for a man
All across Japan
Just to find, to find my samurai
Someone who is strong
But still a little shy
Yes, I need, I need my samurai 

Ai yai yai
I'm your little butterfly
Green, black, and blue
Make the colors in the sky.

Ai yai yai
I'm your little butterfly
Green, black, and blue
Make the colors in the sky.

I've been searching in the woods
And high upon the field
Just to find, to find my samurai
Someone who won't regret
To keep me in his nest
Yes, I need, I need my samurai

Ai yai yai
I'm your little Butterfly
Green, black, and blue
Make the colors in the sky.

Ai yai yai
I'm your little Butterfly
Green, black, and blue
Make the colors in the sky.
