Information about the song

Kyoto, Osaka, forget about John Rocker
Seibu, Fukuoka, Baby let's fly over
To Kobe, Wakayama, come on pretty mama

In the Far East, you know
There's a place called Tokyo
That's where you wanna go to see a game of baseball

In an ancient land
Holding saki in your hand
We'll be having a ball, sitting in the right field stands
Down in Tokyo

Kyoto, Osaka, forget about John Rocker
Seibu, Fukuoka, Baby let's fly over
To Kobe, Wakayama, come on pretty mama
(fade in:) Ooo I wanna take you out to Tokyo
The plane is fast, but the ride is slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Tokyo

Nagoya calls, we're gonna have a ball

The sights that we will see
And we won't hide our ecstasy
By and by we'll defy a little bit of gravity
And for two straight nights
The Mets and Cubs under the lights
We'll have a natural high
While all the baseballs fly
Way down in Tokyo

Kyoto, Osaka, forget about John Rocker
Seibu, Fukuoka, Baby let's fly over
To Kobe, Wakayama, come on pretty mama
(fade in:) Ooo I wanna take you out to Tokyo
The plane is fast, but the ride is slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Tokyo

Nagano, I really want to go

(Musical interlude)

Everybody knows
A little place like Tokyo
Now if you wanna go
To see the game of baseball
Go down to Tokyo

Kyoto, Osaka, forget about John Rocker
Seibu, Fukuoka, Baby let's fly over
To Kobe, Wakayama, come on pretty mama
(fade in:) Ooo I wanna take you out to Tokyo
The plane is fast, but the ride is slow
That's where we wanna go
Way down to Tokyo

Kyoto, Osaka, forget about John Rocker
Seibu, Fukuoka, Baby let's fly over
To Kobe, Wakayama, come on pretty mama
(fade in and out:) Ooo I wanna take you out to Tokyo
