"Go, Megalon! Defeat Godzilla!"
Far beneath the sea
Sleeping 3,000 kilometers in the ground
Megalon, Megalon, Megalon
With a horn like a helmet
With wings like armor
And two hands like drills
Awaken, Megalon
Megalon, Megalon, Megalon, yeah!

Far beyond our nation
On an island 4,000 kilometers south
Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla
With dorsal fins like saws
With a tail like a cannon
And two hands like hammers
Don't give in, Godzilla
Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla, yeah!
"Go, Godzilla! Confront Megalon
and protect the peace of the Earth!"

If Godzilla runs, then Megalon flies
A back-and-forth battle
Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla
With fists like a tank
He happily swings punches
Knock out with jabs and uppercuts
Do your best, Godzilla
Godzilla, Godzilla, Godzilla, yeah!

Note: the lyrics included with the original vinyl release incorrectly indicate the pronunciation of 行け as いけ (ike) rather than ゆけ (yuke).
