—————————————————————————
 
suddenly, young seasonal fishing oncers
who wear thuggy-looking firefighter’s traditional red uniform
are yelling “Black-tailed gulls are
crying over the sea in the stentorian voice
Pacific herring will come and mob at the shore”
they clap up and bustle off around the shore
and move fast on the fishing preparations
in order to make the good catch and get interests
i run to the nook of snow-covered watch-house rapidly
and boil a lot of rice for them
as a cook-burglaress all through the night
 
though, now we have never catched
sight of Herrings nor yet see at all
we wonder where the fish went
nobody knows about it
the fishing nets have been no longer in use
have been ragged and crumbled
by the sea wind and the salt
moldy, mouldy
the merchant-passenger vessel, actually ’emigrant vessel’,
Kasato-Maru steams and keeps an offing
i disconsolately watch it
and the clouded sky that we called ‘Herring cloudy’
on the ocean horizon with tears
 
 
Burning up, beacons all night long !
at Asari shore, Otaru, Hokkai-Do
the ocean stains silver color
with Herring scales
i just drag the seine
that is the very good landing of Herring
to the tune of popular tune, So-Ran-Bushi
over again and again as one of seiners
throughout the cold icy night and day
with the touch of red in our cheeks
 
though, now we have never catched
sight of Herrings nor yet see at all
we wonder where the fish went
nobody knows about it
now, all the Herring millionaires’ mansions
upon Cape of Otamoi
have become desolate and fallen into decay
moldy, mouldy
it is only one that is still the same
just the way it was
yes, it is the ‘ancient script’ on the wall
that people say it was written by antiquity
and all i just have to do is dream
in my prime as a young woman
with tears in my eyes

海猫が鳴くから 春告魚が来ると
赤い筒袖の やん衆が騒ぐ
雪に埋もれた 番屋の隅で
私ゃ 夜通し 飯を炊く
 
あれから春告魚は どこへ行ったやら
破れた網は 問い刺し網か
今じゃ浜辺で オンボロロ
オンボロ ボロロー
沖を通るは 笠戸丸
私ゃ 涙で 春告魚曇の空を見る

燃えろ篝火 朝里の浜に
海は銀色 春告魚の色よ
ソーラン節で 頬染めながら
私ゃ 大漁の 網を曳く
 
あれから春告魚は どこへ行ったやら
オタモイ岬の 鰊御殿も
今じゃ寂れて オンボロロ
オンボロ ボロロー
かわらぬものは 古代文字
私ゃ 涙で 娘盛りの夢を見る

Mister Summertime,
please abondon the search for the old me then
 
Mister Summertime,
i lost all on the past summer day
thereafter i have been in search
something that could compensate the lost
even now
 
on that summer day
the strong evil advance
lied in wait for me
i was swallowed the temptation
debauched shrewdly
and i forgot about you
in one night ecstasy of delight
 
how weak and spineless, young days
i betrayed you, your confidence
and your trust at that night
Ah …
 
Mister Summertime,
Please anesthetize me
from his disdainful glance
that i still remember vividly
 
Mister Summertime,
on that day i have to be crossed in my love
by the fool’s trick of my disordered imagination
though i still remember about my true-lover
to this day even now
 
yes, i thought that was a pecadillo
for a split second
between my soiritual void
yes, i looked back at a devil’s murmur
and i was possessed by the demonic disloyal thought
 
i knew i knew
it was hardly possible
you forgave me what i two-timed him
though, keep one thing perfectly clear even now
and please trust me
you are the only man who i love even now
 
Mister Summertime,
that was the phantasmal affair
on a far distant past summer day
 
Mister Summertime,
i lost all the happiness
from a meet by sheer bliss accident
in my idle and flighty curiosity
 
it kept me from noticing that
i had been in the irreplaceable love
with beloved sweetheart
 
honeyed word, passionate white sand
on the summer beach, the blue sky and the azur ocean
i two-timed and tore only one your heart out 
 
Mister Summertime,
please abondon the search
for the old me then
 
Mister Summertime,
that was the phantasmal affair
on a far distant past summer day

ただひとつの愛に そむいてしまったの Uh…
 
Mr. サマータイム 忘れさせて
あのひとの まなざし
 
Mr. サマータイム 失くした恋
よみがえる せつない想い

Shape of my heart
rylics/musical compositions/singer: Sting
—————————————————————————-
He deals a card as a meditation
And those he plays never suspect
He doesn’t play for the money he wins
He doesn’t play for the respect
 
He deals the cards to find the answer
The sacred geometry of chance
The hidden law of probable outcome
The numbers lead a dance 
 
*
I know that the spades are the swords of a soldier
I know that the clubs are weapons of war
I know that the diamonds mean money for this art
But that’s not the shape of my heart
 
He may play the jack of diamonds
He may lay the queen of spades
He may conceal a king in his hand
While the memory of it fades
 
* repeat
that’s not the shape, shape of my heart

And if I told you that I loved you
You’d maybe think there’s something wrong
I’m not a man of too many faces
The mask I wear is one
 
Those who speak know nothing
And find out to their cost
Like those who curse
their luck in too many places
and those who smiles are lost
 
*
that’s not the shape, shape of my heart

俺の求めるもの 作詞/作曲/歌:スティング
—————————————————————————-
あいつは一枚づつよく考えてカードを切る奴さ
だから、奴の手は疑いないんだ
奴はカネ儲けのためにやってるんじゃない
奴は認められたり尊敬されたいからってやってるんじゃない 
 
あいつは (今のままではどうにもならないと踏むと)
答えを見つけるためにカードを切るんだ
チャンスってやつの配列は神が与えたものだから
その結果は俺たちにはわからない法則に支配されていてな
数、いや、それは旧約聖書の「民数記」みたいに、
面倒を起こしては、俺たち (神の民) を引きずり回すんだ
 
*
俺は知ってるよ、
スペード (鍬) っていうのは兵隊の帯剣を表していて
クラブ (棍棒) は兵器やら火器のことで、
ダイアモンド (宝石) は戦争資金だってことぐらいな…
だがな、そんなものは俺の求めるものじゃあない
 
奴は戦争資金集めを画策して
高性能の兵器やら火器やらを揃えて
手のうちに最後の一手 (大量殺戮兵器)を
隠し持つたりするんだ、
ぼーっとしてる間にな…
 
*
俺は知ってるよ、
スペード (鍬) っていうのは兵隊の帯剣を表していて
クラブ (棍棒) は兵器やら火器のことで、
ダイアモンド (宝石) は戦争資金だってことぐらいな…
だがな、そんなものは俺の求めるものじゃあない
だがな、そんなものは俺のな、
俺の求めてるものじゃあないんだ
 
俺があなたを口説いたら
あなたは何かちょっと違うんだよね、って思うかもね
あはは、俺は風見鶏でも、日和見でもないし、
気の多い八方美人なんかじゃないからな… 
俺は俺以外の他の誰でもないんだ…
 
俺はなんにも知らねえ、って惚ける奴らは
ヤバいって分かると
悪態ををついて逃げようとする
そんな奴らは一つの幸せにこだわったりしやしないし
笑顔なんて、みんな捨てちまってるのさ
 
*
俺は知ってるよ、
スペード (鍬) っていうのは兵隊の帯剣を表していて

だがな、そんなものは俺のな、

ああ、俺が求めているのはね、
俺がずっと待ち続けているのはね、
「ハート」なんだよ …
そう、人間の、人の「こころ」さ。

〔ShiGin〕Fuji-San – Ishikaha Jyozan

Fuji-San [Mount Fuji]
Poem : Ishikaha Jyozan [1583-1672]
————————————
 
people say Mountain-Hermits visit there
they enjoy the splendid landscape
and admire the beautiful scenery of Japan
at the top of Mount Fuji
The fine summit shoots through the clouds
and dominates nobly but delicately in the air
and everybody says there is a gaping abyss
that brims with dark and deep water
at where a dragon has made his habitat ab aeterno
the summit and it ridgeis blanketed by eternal snows
it looks like a beautiful snowy folding fan
sticking pure bright white silk on the surface
and its fume looks like the withe of the fan*
totally, Mount Fuji gives the appearance
that it turns a pure white fan upside down
and it is hung from the blue vault of heaven
on the Eastern Maritime Zone of Japan
 
 
* at thet time, Mount Fuji was active and fumed,
currently the mountain is dormant.

‘A Teary One’
Lyrics: Ishimoto Miyuki
Music composition: Koga Masao
Singer: Misora Hibari
————————————
 
i drink tipples at the bar
all alone tonight again
the amber liquid in every glass
savors of the teary pain taste
of parting with ex-lover
i want to forget the pain of the separation
and his images when we were happy
by drinking every shot … oh, Jesus …
the more drinking,
the more conjuring up the image of him
passing in review on the surface of the glass
 
〔Dialogue〕
we have already broken up
and have splitted up …
though i still have regrets about him
and the separation
ah, i don’t know when to give up still now
i drink this liquor in order to forget him
though the shots in my arm makes me desolate
every night, yes, you know, also tonight …
now, i ask you, Little Demon in my glass
let me know … put me out of my misery …
how could i forget about him?
how could i …
 
i love all alone
i love to keep myself company
please leave me drink
yes, i said to you, master, i said …
with that said, i am talking tough,
yes, i try to hide my weakness
please do not you say ‘Don’t try to act tough’
exactly, i ached heart behind my tough face
yes, i am playing tough but crying inside
i just weep inside and scream within my mind
about ‘why in this world does it not make the progress
that i seek and find the love i want
what is even worse, the roof falls in
i hold the grudge against my sad fate
with crying drunk as the evening goes on

ひとり酒場で 飲む酒は
別れ涙の 味がする
飲んで棄てたい 面影が
飲めばグラスに また浮かぶ
 
〔台詞〕
別れた後の心残りよ 未練なのね
あの人の面影を 寂しさを
忘れるために 飲んでいるのに
酒は今夜も 私を悲しくさせる
酒よ どうして 
どうして あの人を諦めたらいいの 
諦めたらいいの
 
ひとりぼっちが 好きだよと
言った心の 裏で泣く
好きで添えない 人の世を
泣いて恨んで 夜が更ける

Nakajyo Kiyoshi – Uso

youtube: 中条きよし うそ

————————————————————–
‘You, Liar, are always flattering ladies … ‘
[Uso (うそ/嘘: release 1973) ]
Lyrics: Yamaguchi Yoko
music composition: Hirao Masaaki
singer : Nakajyo Kiyoshi [中条きよし]
————————————————————–
 
i know you lie yourself out of lie on me
because all your stubs are snapped
at the middle of cigars
there is someone else, isn’t there?
you love someone else, don’t you?
ah, for the past a half year,
we have loved each other
you said to me
“your apron, sure, look good on you !
i am attracted to your home-oriented disposition
yes, don’t dye your nails, that’s very your style.”
you are a brazen liar who tells ‘out of lover’
lachrymose lies which have her in tears afterward
 
there are some bad habits, you left
one is the ‘calling some one on the phone
at the dead of night’
what the nerve !
one is the ‘unlock door and sleeping”
what a dangerous !
ah, you have not intention of making a commitment
with me at all
ah, what are you going to prepare my wedding dress?
you say
“i love Kimono wedding, it is also good on you !”
then you kiss me violently
you are a cool liar who tells ‘out of lover’ lachrymose lies
 
“ah, you, go easy on the drinks, all right?
you need a man who stops you from drinking too much. ”
“ah, be careful on the cab you back”
“you are no longer some single individual, all right? ”
you are a nice soft-centered liar who tells ‘out of lover’
touching lies that the lady is going to be moved to tears afterward

Yoshida Takuro
‘Up to today and Starting from tomorrow’
Lyrics, Musical composing, original singer: Yoshida Takuro
——————————————————————————————————–
 
in the meantime i have actually lived my life up to today
sometimes i went to someone for help
sometimes i clung fast to someone’s arm
i have actually lived my life up to today
and now i have still in mind
to keep and make my own way through my own life
from tomorrow without change before
 
in the meantime i have actually lived my life up to today
sometimes i chucked off and derided someone
sometimes i was threatened by someone’s assault and battery
i have actually lived my life up to today
and now i have still in mind
to keep and make my own way through my own life
from tomorrow without change before
 
in the meantime i have actually lived my life up to today
sometimes i was betrayed by someone
sometimes i was walking hand in hand with someone
i have actually lived my life up to today
and now i have still in mind
to keep and make my own way through my own life
from tomorrow without change before
 
i have my own lifestyle
if i want to understand the ‘my own lifestyle’
it would start to get in touch with myself
maybe here and now
 
though if at all, even so
the way that i think about ‘my own lifestyle’
will vary and change
with why, where, when, how
by whom, what and the luck of the draw
during the second greatly, quickly and easily
 
yes, tomorrow will worry about itself
it is nowhere in sight
i will rock along and keep my life i was used to
without a single thought for tomorrow
 
in the meantime i have actually lived my life up to today
i have actually lived my life up to today
i have actually lived my life up to today
i have actually lived my life up to today
and now i have still in mind
to keep and make my own way through my own life
from tomorrow without change before

今日までそして明日から
作詩・作曲・歌:吉田拓郎

私は今日まで生きてみました
時には誰かの力を借りて
時には誰かにしがみついて
私は今日まで生きてみました
そして今私は思っています
明日からもこうして生きて行くだろうと
 
私は今日まで生きてみました
時には誰かを嘲笑って
時には誰かに脅かされて
私は今日まで生きてみました
そして今私は思っています
明日からもこうして生きて行くだろうと
 
私は今日まで生きてみました
時には誰かに裏切られて
時には誰かと手を取り合って
私は今日まで生きてみました
そして今私は思っています
明日からもこうして生きて行くだろうと
 
私には私の生き方がある
それはおそらく自分というものを
知るところから始まるものでしょう
 
けれど それにしたって
どこでどう変わってしまうか
そうです わからないまま生きて行く
明日からのそんな私です
 
私は今日まで生きてみました
私は今日まで生きてみました
私は今日まで生きてみました
私は今日まで生きてみました
そして今私は思っています
明日からもこうして生きて行くだろうと
