Speaking of Engrish, I think the most 'wtf'-worthy bit of Engrish in an anime song is the 'you must fight against yourself' bit from the Gensomaden Saiyuki closing theme. :)

Nah, I know a better one:

"let's gamble hey jumbo now shake your bum and do the rumble..."

This little tidbit is from the otherwise good song called "Gamble Rumble" by Move (I don't think it's used in anime at all)

Now Playing: "I've got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts" - Merv Griffin

Yep, that song Zazu sings for scar in The Lion King :D

Split this off from "Now Playing"

What are your favorite nonsensical Engrish lyrics from J-pop or anime themes?

I have to go with the classic, from "Carnival Babel", the Blue Seed opening theme:

Quote:
Mysterious Tokyo
Take it easy dangerous night
Mysterious Tokyo
Pick me up foxy night game

This one was on my callendar on May 8 (365 Stupidest Thigs Ever Said):

"I want to throw my brain of a half,
I want to throw my brain of a half,
I want to throw it away."

-"Brain" by The Pees. I don't know if this is engrish, but it sounds like it should be.

Here the full section:

You must fight against yourself
The sun sets and a new day comes
Repeating is one change
Don't avert eyes from differences
Your nerve and soul to the limit
Go forward now
