"Seoul Music" as written by and Ryuichi/co-writer Unknown Sakamoto....
An example of life in old Korea
The girl wouldn't let me take her picture
Kimpo Airport

An old man with a stick, in white baji chogori,
With a black katsu on his head
The taxi driver kept asking if I wanted a woman
Highway wa kassoro

Myongdong St. has no neon signs
Roadside pillboxes with armed police in front
Kuni no hana wa mukuge
There is a curfew from midnight till 4

Haikara na Myongdong musume
From Busan you can see Tsushima
The speed limit for passenger cars is 37 miles per hour
Yakan no dorojo de no chusha wa

Chushato o tento suru koto
Korea has air raid drill once a month
Tokyo-Seoul kan wa yaku nijikan
People over 46 speak Japanese
