"Mothra's Song" (モスラの歌 is a song composed by Mosura no Uta)Yuji Koseki for the 1961 Toho film Mothra. The song was initially performed by the musical duo The Peanuts, comprised of sisters Emi and Yumi Ito, who portrayed the Shobijin in the film. The Peanuts reprised the role in Mothra vs. Godzilla, in which they also performed the song. The song was later performed by Sayaka Osawa and Keiko Imamura in Godzilla vs. Mothra, Megumi Kobayashi, Sayaka Yamaguki, and Misato Tate in the Rebirth of Mothra trilogy, and Chihiro Otsuka and Masami Nagasawa in Godzilla: Tokyo S.O.S.. The song is also included in the soundtrack for Godzilla: King of the Monsters, with choir version that was excluded from the film. A different version of Mothra's song was composed by Masaru Sato for the 1966 film Ebirah, Horror of the Deep, and performed by Pair Bambi. "Mothra's Song" is typically sung by Mothra's twin fairies in films in which she appears in order to summon her to their aid. The song's lyrics originate from the Indonesian language, but are approximated to Japanese pronunciations. The 1992 rendition of the song additionally features a new verse containing Japanese lyrics. In addition to "Mothra's Song," Mothra's Shobijin have performed numerous other songs in order to summon Mothra throughout her film appearances, many of which also contain lyrics derived from the Indonesian language.
