we picked flowers in the wild field
the sun begun to set down without even our noticings
we went home as walking together
with our arms around each other
and sang songs on the way back our village
i flash across my mind about the childhood friends
now, their each face registers in my mind individually
what are they doing now ?
ah, no one would not ache for his native land
 
one night, my elder sister got married
and went into the other family
she was my only one family member
that was our background
i cared for her alone and i got left on my own
then under the moonlit
i cried by the brook all alone
now, those memories dear to me
at this distance in time
the old mountains and old rivers
are exactly the same as those childhood days
ah, no one would not ache for his native land
 
at an evening, it was rain in Our Emperor City
when i remembered those memories
of my old days in my native land
i had been liable to be choked with tears
then somebody called me quite a way off
‘who calls me ? ‘
but there was nobody anywhere
yep, i had dreamt the dream of my childhood
yes, i had met my childhood friends there
ah, no one would not ache and yearn for his native land

花摘む野辺に 日は落ちて
みんなで肩を組みながら
歌を歌った 帰り道
幼なじみの あの友この友
あゝ 誰か故郷を想はざる

ひとりの姉が 嫁ぐ夜に
小川の岸で さみしさに
泣いた涙の なつかしさ
幼なじみの あの山この川
あゝ 誰か故郷を想はざる
 
都に雨の 降る夜は
涙に胸も 湿りがち
遠く呼ぶのは 誰の声
幼なじみの あの夢この夢
あゝ 誰か故郷を想はざる
