NOTES
Awamori is a very strong Okinawan liquor (of which Awanami is a specific type). "haisai" is a fairly typical and well known Okinawan greeting. The Kariyushi is a beach resort in Okinawa. Yaeyama are a series of islands in Okinawa, and Misaki is a cape at the northern tip of Okinawa main island. Gasami is a blue crab that is native to Okinawa. The sanshi is a stringed instrument that's basically Okinawa's version of the shamisen (traditional Japanese stringed instrument). "The sorrowful Asadoya" refers to "Asadoya Yunta". "Asadoya Yunta" is a song that originated in Okinawa about a woman named Asadoya nu Kuyama, who was brave enough to reject a wedding proposal from a government official. Orion beer is a beer that is distributed in Okinawa, brewed by the Orion Brewery (together with Asahi Brewery). The "Manta Scramble" is an Okinawan event from spring to fall, in which there is a high probability of seeing Mantas. Therefore, divers from all over Japan come to Okinawa for this. In case you can't tell, this song was written about Okinawa!

Island beach boku to ite choudai
Love and Peace natsu wa owaranai
koko wa yume no Bali-Hai
ashita kaeri tounai No no no

Night and Day kimi to yari houdai
awamori de kuusuu nomi houdai
ato wa odorou Paradise
kesshite hanasanai No no no

churaumi pai no mi sakasete haisai
kimi ni kariyushi todokemashou
aa hasunohagiri no kokage de yoiyoi
kokoro youki ni utaimashou

yoru no yaeyama misaki no kaiwai
iki na shima uta hayashitate
aa gasami awanami yowasete uiui
itsumo genki ni kurashimashou

are wa kami no shima haruka kuni yo
aoi umi no iro kaze no uta yo

Mamas and Papas yume no California
Black and Soul ai no Philadelphia
sanshin kanashii asadoya
soshite Orion beer, No no no no

churaumi pai no mi sakasete haisai
kimi ni kariyushi todokemashou
aa hasunohagiri no kokage de yoiyoi
kokoro youki ni utaimashou

yoru no yaeyama misaki no kaiwai
iki na shima uta hayashitate
aa gasami awanami yowasete uiui
itsumo genki ni kurashimashou

shiroi hoshi no suna yoseru nami yo
itoshii hito no tame ai ni kita yo

oyoide wangan no Corner
kuura biichi wa Sunset
rakuen no mantasukuranburu
Come to me

ai to kandou Stir it up!!
minsaa ori wa Velvet
pooku ranchon miito mangoo!!
Come to me
oide

are wa kami no shima haruka kuni yo
aoi umi no iro kaze no uta yo

shiroi hoshi no suna yoseru nami no oto
itoshii hito no tame ai ni kita yo
