Chi’s solo is a sneaky song about how he has learnt to use his height to his advantage. He’s even managed to sneak an homage to his Wallet-chan into the lyrics.

I.C.H.I.G.O.Q

 

What’ your game? What’ your game?

What’ your game? What’ your game?

 

More than cute girls, More than the starry sky

People love me

 

By sacrificing my height

I can keep their love all to myself

 

Since I ended up destined to “tinyness”

Everyone loves me

There was a time when I wanted to be taller but

In the now things have changed

You get it, right?

Everyone is soft (always)

The whole world (my clothes) is kind (my food) to me

I’m positive I’ll be I.C.H.I.G.O.Q tomorrow too

 

I often skip class Symphony

Now gather round like I’m royalty Fantasy

The receipts in his hand Thank you guy

I’m not what I seem Don’t you know?

 

Hey, until I’m well passed the deadline

I’ll hold onto these dreams

 

People say “This and that are not enough”

That’s not a problem for me

If you have time to ask for the impossible

Ready go Just the way I am
