Team Rocket Forever

This article is about the song. For the CD, see Team Rocket Forever (CD).

Team Rocket Forever (Japanese: ロケットよ永遠に Roketto-dan yo Eien ni, lit. Rocket Gang Forever) is a song sung by Jessie, James and Meowth.

It has been used in several episodes: The Song of Jigglypuff, Go West, Young Meowth (only the beginning of it), Same Old Song and Dance (with some minor changes), Training Daze (replaced by Double Trouble in the dub), Unova's Survival Crisis! (as the ending theme during the first Japanese airing), and New Places... Familiar Faces (removed in the dub).

Japanese English translation
宇宙の果てが 暗闇ならば
白々明けてみせましょう
走れ! 輝け! 光って見せろ! (にゃーんてな)

愛が正義か 正義が悪か
どんでん返しの からくり芝居
見てよ 我らが主役のドラマ
ポケモン時代は 明日がある ウン

宇宙の果てに 明かりが見えりゃ
そこに 我らの顔がある
ムサシ! コジロウ! ニャースでニャース!

(セリフ) うるさい! おまえ!
いてて
わたしたちのうたなのよ
なにするにゃー

夢がほんとか ほんとが悪夢
ぐるりぐりりのいつかは主役

ポケモン時代は明日がある ニャー

(ラップ)アースは地球
地球はニャース
ナス食べるなら まーぼーニャース
ぴりから

If there is darkness at the end of the universe,
Let us show you the light!
Run! Sparkle! Show how you shine! (Right, meow!)

Is love justice? Is justice evil?
A puppet show with a sudden reversal!
Watch this play where we are the stars!
There is a future in the Pokémon era!

If you see light at the end of the universe;
There you will find our faces.
Musashi! Kojirō! And Nyarth, meow!

(Spoken) Quiet, you!
Ouch!
This is our song!
What are you doing!?

Dreams are reality? Reality will be a nightmare
Once we assume command!
Watch as we bloom!
There is a future in the Pokémon era! Meow!

(Rap) Soil is the Earth.
The Earth is nyasu (nice).
And we'd all eat some eggplant were it up to Nyarth!
From the bottom,
to the bottom,
the Earth is to turn!

One time, two times, three times, and lots of whirling! This feels good!
Four times, five times, six times, and steadily increasing! This feels good!
But before that, seven times--thump, thud, blast!
The usual pattern!
This feels bad!
Blast! Blast!
Thump! Thump!
This feels bad!
But that won't stop us; we are dauntless!
So long as the universe exists,
We will follow the path of truth!

Why?
Why!?
Why, meow!?
The answer...
It's our duty.
No, no...
Shall we do it?
We'll give you this!

(Spoken) If you ask us this or that;
We will answer out of sympathy for the world!
To prevent the world's destruction!
To protect the world's peace!
To bring love and honesty's evils to light!
In the role of the lovely, charming villains!
Musashi!
Kojirō!
The couple from the Rocket Gang soars through the galaxy!
A white hole... a white tomorrow is waiting for us!
Right, meow!

We did it! This is going to be a CD!
This is major, unfathomable!
World conquest!
Showdown!
Musashi!
Kojirō!
Kanmon Strait...
Moji...
Shimonoseki...[1]
Meow... What are you talking about?

If there is darkness at the end of the universe,
Let us show you the light!
Run! Sparkle! Show how you shine! Meow, meow! Right!

Is love justice? Is justice evil?
A puppet show with a sudden reversal!
Dreams are reality? Reality will be a nightmare
Once we assume command!
Watch this play where we are the stars!
There is a future in the Pokémon era!....
A future...
A future! MEOW!
  1. These five lines are referencing a real-world historical event: Miyamoto Musashi and Sasaki Kojirō (the name basis for Jessie and James's Japanese names, Musashi and Kojirō) fought their famous duel on an island in the Kanmon Straits, which is located between Moji and Shimonoseki.

English version

Jessie and James:
You know us as Team Rocket and we fight for what is wrong.
We're tired of our motto so we thought we try a song!


Jessie:
Jessie!

James:
James!

Jessie and James:
The speed of light, prepare to fight!

Meowth:
Meowth, that's right!

James:
I am the handsome one!

Jessie:
I'm the gorgeous one!

Jessie and James:
Looking good is lots of fun. We get some things wrong, but we keep rolling along!

All:
We want to capture Pikachu. We hope to do it soon. And when we do we'll be the new stars of this... cartoon!
