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.
