Lyrical content

The song opens with a males voice saying "Ayu Ready" and other variations of that, like saying "Ayu Ready to Rock" and others. The lyrics are the same as the original version of Seasons, except that it starts with the first chorus. Throughout the song, a males voice comes in saying the "Ayu Ready?" lines and other things, as well.

Musical content

The song has a strong dance feel with a Happy Hardcore overtone. As Ayumi first starts singing the mix turns to a piano, and slowly back into a fast beat, following a similar pattern throughout.
