Under a blue, blue sky the hot sun and the wind dance. There's an exceptionally big smile on my sunburned face - I'm feelin' so good. Make me hotter. (I wanna dance together and forever. Wherever I'm at, I'll still feel like this) I should be able to go, because you're here with me. (With the sun we're gonna make it better, we'll try to smile all the time) We'll figure it all out. So happy happy days. (I wanna dance together and forever. I'll keep feeling like this forever) The colors won't fade away from my special memory. (With the sun we're gonna make it better - and that's anytime, no matter where) La la la la la, so happy happy days.

Song Production Information
Since this was my first time recording like this, I was really excited and really nervous, but thanks to all the staff who helped me calm down and feel at ease, I was able to relax and sing!
Thanks to everyone for letting me hear this song and take part in it ★☆★
I'd love to do this again sometime!!
LOVE SMILE PEACE!
Video Production Information
The refreshing vocals, the hot scratching, and the part in the middle where the BPM speeds up all made me think of comical motions, and it ended up in a DJ ROBO revival. It's a very refreshing(?) clip that fits in with the theme of "HAPPY SKY". It's a light reggae tune where even DJ ROBO is joking around. He's got a Rasta colors headband and a turntable life ring. Then he gets the B (bottom) parts.
DJ ROBO joined a group of top DJs after last time's club event. After he made a killing, he took out a 30 year loan to create his own personal paradise ... at least, that's what they say.
