- Romanized Japanese -
A ga maeba, kuwashime yoinikeri
A ga maeba, terutsuki toyomunari
Yobai ni, kami amakudatite
Yo wa ake, nuedori naku
- English Translation -
Because I had danced, the beautiful lady was enchanted
Because I had danced, the shining moon echoed
Proposing marriage, the god shall descend
The night clears away and the chimera bird will sing
- Another English Translation -
When you are dancing, a beautiful lady becomes drunken,
When you are dancing, a shining moon rings.
A god descends for a wedding,
And dawn approaches while the night bird sings.
