I can’t leave her alone!
I’ll help her out
Because I’m her friend, I’ll unite forces with her!

Let’s go![Ami]
What’s the matter?
Got scolded again?
Cheer up!
Wink! It’s no use fretting about it!
[Rei]
Exactly!
[Ami]
Being sent into a tizzy by your Mama, of all people!
Look! We haven’t the time for this sort of thing!
The enemy is starting to gather,
We have to be strong,
and get on with kicking them down.[Both]
I can’t leave her alone!
I’ll help her out
Because I’m her friend, I’ll unite forces with her!

Because I’m her friend, I’ll combine forces with her!

What’s wrong?
Did you get refused by some guy again?
Dazed and confused?
Smile! There’s no point in brooding about it!
[Ami]
No way!
[Rei]
Being in a dither over a guy, of all things!
Look! We’ve got things we’ve gotta do!
The enemy is starting to succeed in pushing us back;
We have to be strong,
and get on with routing them.

[Ami]
But, you know… If you, and the
guy you love, are able to get together….
[Rei]

We promise we’ll protect the two of you!
[Both]
We’re friends, so call us right away!
Mercury Power, Mars Power – Make Up!

I can’t leave her alone!
I’ll help her out
Because I’m her friend, I’ll combine forces with her!

Mars Power, Make Up!
