There are some lyrics in the song VOICE by Perfume that go:


I've no idea how こ functions here as I don't think I've encountered it before like this. The group are from [広島]{ひろしま} if that helps, though I couldn't find anything about it on the wiki for 広島弁. It's probably something really simple.

It has nothing to do with Hiroshima dialect.

~~てこ = ~~ていこう (volitional form of ~~ていく)

てこ is just a colloquial pronunciation.

~~てこ = "Let's go ~~ing!" or simply "Let's ~~!"

Yeah, that makes sense. I didn't think it would be anything to do with Hiroshima dialect but I thought I should point that out just in case. Thanks :) – MisterM2402 Dec 29 '13 at 0:38
