Kirby and the Forgotten Land opens with a delightful song. Here are the lyrics so you can sing them to yourself whenever you want.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land is an impressive game on many levels. In our review of the Nintendo Switch exclusive, we praised its beautiful visuals and enjoyable platforming.

The attention to detail from developer Hal Laboratory is evident right from the beginning. No more so than in the brilliant song that introduces and concludes game. The words to the song are subtitled using the game’s fictional language and regional Earth languages.

In a recent interview, developers Shinya Kumazaki and Kei Ninomiya revealed that every word in Kirby’s fictional lexicon can be translated.

“We did create a new written language for our forgotten civilisation, but we made sure each message could be deciphered if the player studies them closely. This is just an extra bit of “flavour” in the game’s world, but it also allows players who want to learn more the chance to immerse themselves in the adventure. I feel this is where the creators’ efforts really pay off.”

The song – titled Welcome to the New World! – is a cute and memorable introduction to a great game. Here are the English lyrics in full.

Kirby and the Forgotten Land Title Song Lyrics

“Welcome to the New World!”

Strange horizon. Ready to go.
Feast your eyes on a new world!

A new dreamland. A place where you’ll laugh and smile.
Along the way, stuff your belly and nap awhile.

No one can hold you back. New fields full of mystery
The sky’s opened up, and there’s so much to see.

Running wild!

Just let your heart take the wheel and show you the way.
Fresh spring breeze!
Adventure is awaiting you in the fields of a new world!

Strange emotion. What do you feel?
The roaring ocean of a new world!

Don’t be afraid. Face your fears—you’ll hunger for more.
The tension builds; plunge ahead on this thrilling tour.

Think of the friends you’ve made, all of them living free.
Their cares have been washed away by a wild sea.

Laughing loud!

Even if you’re far apart, they’re right by your side.
Hearts full of love!
Everyone is welcome to live in this new world.

Running wild!

Just let your heart take the wheel and show you the way.
Fresh spring breeze!
Adventure is awaiting you in the fields of a—

Open hearts already fluttering free and riding the breeze.
Nothing but love to share with everyone we know. Whoa!

New world.
