Lyrics: Babymetal – PA PA YA!!

Source of the lyrics: 5ch.net/babymetal/ and own interpretation / transcription. I did not bother to include the text or translation for the rap-part. As with most Japanese lyrics, the translation may vary depending on the person translating it, a bit of text interpretation is always part of the process. You can find the Romaji Lyrics with the translation side by side down below. The Japanese Lyrics are at the very end.
Lyrics: SIAMMETAL

Lyric translation

the best and supreme say talent is
to burn yourself with your body and spirit
bring it, oh bring it

It’s a festival, It’s a festival, a spicy salad song
It’s a festival, It’s a festival, a crazy salad dance

make noise, make noise, papaya boys
dance, dance, papaya girls
papaya papaya

the extreme way to be the strongest and best is
to test yourself in a different dimension and time
bring it, oh bring it

It’s a festival, It’s a festival, crazy summer boys
It’s a festival, It’s a festival, spicy summer girls

scream, scream, the papaya song
dance, dance, the papaya dance
papaya papaya

Dance and shout, pa pa party time

Note: Some of the lyrics are hard to understand even for the Japanese fans it seems. So it is possible that the lines “spicy salad song” and “crazy salad dance” are actually “spicy stardust storm” and “crazy summer dance”. This is due to a very similar way of saying both in Japanese and the overall mastering of the track. Why would “salad” make more sense? According to multiple fan translations of the rap part, the lyrics are actually about mixing a spicy papaya salad with chocolate. So it fits the overall meaning more.
