I want to be with you this summer that we'll never have again...
on my way home, an emergency call rings out suddenly
recently something is strange
vaguely I have noticed it though
what on earth caused us,
extremely ordinary girls to be chosen?
ordinary? I'm just kidding, in fact
we are hardly competent girls, you know
A fever of love doesn't need to cool
but even so, it's too hot
this is the only way...
COOL BIZ?

chorus

(do you have a love?) spare me your love
(do you have a love?) please give it to me
we need your power
AKIHABALOVE
you and me were able to meet in Akihabara
this town, this earth
I want to keep taking care of them forever, so...
we still don't have enough

a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step
we have to turn up the kindness level more
turn your hot heart into cooling power, and
have a little courage
you can do it, too!

*chorus

(do you have a love?) spare me your love
(do you have a love?) please give it to me
we need your power
AKIHABALOVE
you and me were able to meet in Akihabara
this town, this earth
I want to keep taking care of them forever, so...

in this summer we'll never have again, with you...

chorus

(do you have a love?) spare me your love
(do you have a love?) please give it to me
we need your power
AKIHABALOVE
you and me were able to meet in Akihabara
this town, this earth
I want to keep taking care of them forever, so...

I'm happy to have been with you in this summer we'll never have again

thank you, I was able to spend with you this summer

Translator notes:

Akihabalove is a collaboration with Momoi Haruko, a singer and voice actor.
It was made for an event in Akihabara, 打ち水大作戦!2005(Uchimizu Daisakusen 2005)
and Akihabalove was used in the ending of its promotional anime. The three girls took the challenge to be a voice actor in it. Fans in Japan called this time Perfume's "Dark HIstory" (because Perfume got popular in a different way from most other idols: If they had kept singing songs like Akihabalove, or their first two singles, they would be famous among the otaku community, but never as popular as now, forever.)

COOL BIZ(Cool+Business): A campaign in Japan, or the ways to wear cloths, which follows the campaign. To reduce the emission of CO2 and stop Global warming, it encourages people to wear less and to use air conditioners as little as possible in summer.
