[Mimi]
We’re right in the morning light, but I’d still like a nice dream
If we both walk together, we’ll be invincible
[Palmon]
We’re flowers with a sweet scent
I’ve got a good feeling about today, too, how strange

[Mimi] This isn’t good! [Palmon] Forget this!
[Both] We’ve gotta do it right and be fashionable!

[Both]
Whenever we can smile, we’re happy
[Mimi]
There are so many pretty things
[Both]
Let’s go around and collect them all
Really, being able to smile is great
[Palmon]
I love having fun
[Both]
See, it’s a Happy Smile

[Mimi]
(Hey, hey, Palmon!)
[Palmon]
(What is it, Mimi?)
[Mimi]
(Let’s do a staring contest!2)
[Palmon]
(Okay! I’m gonna win, you know!)
[Mimi]
(Remember, the one who laughs first loses, got it?)
[Palmon]
(Got it!)
[Mimi]
(Let’s go!)
[Palmon]
(Yeah!)
[Both]
(Ready! Mmmmmmmmmm…!)
[Palmon]
(Mmm…tickle tickle tickle tickle tickle tickle…!)
[Mimi]
(Ugh, Palmon, that’s not fair!)
[Palmon]
(Hahahahaha!)

[Palmon]
The days when we helped each other, I keep them in my heart
I worried about you so much, so long ago
[Mimi]
Even when we can’t be with each other, we’re friends, right?
We wink at ourselves in the photo

[Palmon] How lovely! [Mimi] How cute!
[Both] Let’s go to our favorite place

[Both]
Every so often, there are times when the tears won’t stop
[Palmon]
If we let ourselves cry as much as we want
[Mimi]
Our true hearts will show
[Both]
Sometimes we start feeling blue
[Mimi]
But we still believe
[Both]
See, it’s a Happy Smile

[Both]
Whenever we can smile, we’re happy
[Mimi]
There are so many pretty things
[Both]
Let’s go around and collect them all
Really, being able to smile is great
[Palmon]
I love having fun
[Both]
See, it’s a Happy Smile

Translator's notes
  1. At the time, Palmon’s voice actress went under the stage name “Shihomi Mizowaki”, but currently (as of this writing) uses the name Kinoko Yamada. []
  2. Mimi and Palmon’s “make the other laugh” game is a common Japanese children’s game called “niramekko” (にらめっこ), in which the players hold funny faces at each other, and whoever laughs first is the loser. []
