Weird Anime Theme Song

This isn't really a request for lyrics, moreso I'm trying to figure out what these lyrics MEAN...

I can't really understand the song "Motteke! Sailor Fuku", which is the opening theme to Lucky Star. The lyrics in Japanese and English are here, but apparantly it uses a bit of wordplay that gets lost in translation.

Can anyone help me out?

Phrases like...
"Yeah! The feeling of existence…asteroids
They collided and melted together; I’m dumbfounded
Singing a lot, Sirenge"
and
"At vaguely 3cm, is that called squishy? Geez!
My wrapping is a uniform… It can’t be disadvantageous, pbbt.
I’ll try my best ♥ I’ll do it
That and catch & Release, gak
In the cleavage of sweat (Fuu) sweat (Fuu), Darlin’ darlin’ F R E E Z E!!"
(sounds kinda like a vague sexual reference almost O.o am I way off?)

So...yeah...anyone who can understand this better than I can, please give me your take on it...

Much appreciated

Just like the anime, Lucky Star OP is completely random. Although that "catch and release" line has something to do with lolicons, as some person had speculated.

As the others have said, you're looking for what's not there. The other parts of the song make more sense. Although I know first hand how sketchy Japanese to English translation is.

I mean when the title translates roughly to "Take it! Sailor Uniform", do you seriously expect the song to make sense?

Not so, apparently.
Someone has made sense out of it here.

Cookies to him, seriously.

The thought did cross my mind that "3 cm" could be an indication of breast size (from "puni" in the same line), but I really DIDN'T want to think of it that way. It's only one verse though, the rest of the song is just as incomprehensible as ever.

So like...does that mean that the series is actually intended to have some sort of double-meaning with sex and loli and that kind of thing...or is it intended as a pun or some kind of irony type thing?

Somehow I can't really see Lucky Star as a sexual kind of series...at least not THAT overtly sexual...anyone disagree/agree?

Yes it definitely isn't a series with much of a sexual overtone, but the targeted audience(read: otaku) is definitely being made fun of. Not to mention that they're lapping it up, since the CD sales have been absolutely spectacular.

Also, even if the OP might serve as an introduction to a series, most notably via its images, its lyrics need not be. All it needs is to be fitting to the imagery and have an ungrating-to-the-ear tune(although YMMV here).

The best example I can think of is the OP and ED to Hanada Shounen Shi. It has a freaking pair of Backstreet Boys' teenybopping love tunes for crying out loud, but I don't exactly hate them to the core, so its mission is accomplished in my case. And the series isn't a romance series at that.

Who knows... The song is so random. I do give props to the person (link posted earlier) who made something out of the song. The world may never know the truth about the song though.... XP

Any1 here heard the backward version of this song?

I did, but do not understand Japanese so can't figure out if it have any meaning. But some guys in the "comment" section mentioned the song writer is a "genius", so it may actually meant something.

The Lucky*Star theme is a nonsense songs full of implicit references designed to make otaku stark raving crazy sure that there's something sexual implied. In other words, pure evil.

To respond to the actual TITLE of the thread, I still think the OP to Tsukuyomi Moon Phase is pretty bizarre... or possibly the several OP in Pani Poni Dash.

Well we've got to remember that it's just Shinbo. After he went kinda nuts.

Not to forget SZS, of course, what with its really scary sounding lyrics. Especially the EDs. And THAT homesick song.

Lol yeah Lucky Star is crazy.. You have to expect a crazy opening =] Motteke! Sailor Fuku is an amazing song though. And the dance is just so addicting.
