Like Ai no Uta, Tane no Uta (種のうた?, lit.: "Song of Seed") was used in the Japanese advertisements, specifically those for Pikmin 2. The song can also be partially heard in some games. Oddly enough, the CD of Tane no Uta comes with CD Extra capabilities. There is actually a TV commercial present on the disc when booted on a computer.[1]

LyricsEdit

Japanese (Romaji)Edit

Aka pikumin wa hi ni tsuyoi
Ao pikumin wa oborenai
Kii pikumin wa takaku tobu
Murasaki pikumin chikara mochi
Shiro pikumin niwa...
doku ga aru
Kosei ga iroiro ikite iru yo

Atama no teppen me wo dashite
Sono me ga happa ni sodattara
Sono ha wa tsubomi ni chijikomari
Sono tsubomi kara hana saita
Minna atsumatte...
kirei deshou
Kosei wa iroiro sakasemashou

Akai yuuhi go moeteru
Aoi umi kara kao dashite
Kiiroi hoshi ga umaretara
Murasaki iro no yoake kara
Shiroi ichinichi ga...
hajimaru yo
Kosei ga iroiro utsukushii ne

English (roughly translated)Edit

A Red Pikmin is fire resistant
A Blue Pikmin doesn't drown
A Yellow Pikmin jumps high
A Purple Pikmin is strong
A White Pikmin...
contains poison
(They) live with all kinds of personalities

From the top of the head comes a sprout
From that sprout a leaf grows
From that leaf a bud appears
From that bud a flower blooms
When everyone gathers around...
isn't it beautiful?
Let's bloom all kinds of personalities

The red sunset is burning
Showing itself from the blue ocean
When the yellow stars are born
From the purple dawn
The white day...
has begun
Aren't the different kinds of personalities beautiful?
