Takeda no Komoriuta
Mori mo iyagaru, Bon kara saki-nya Yuki mo chiratsuku-shi, Ko mo naku-shi Bon ga kita-tote, Nani ureshi-karo Katabira wa nashi, Obi wa nashi Kono ko you naku, Mori wo ba ijiru Mori mo ichi-nichi, Yaseru-yara Hayo-mo yuki-taya, Kono zaisho koete Mukou ni mieru wa, Oya no uchi (x2) I would hate baby-sitting beyond Bon Festival, The snow begins to fall, and the baby cries. How can I be happy even when Bon Festival is here? I don't have nice clothes or a sash to wear. This child continues to cry and is mean to me. I get thinner because the baby cries all day. I would quickly quit here and go back To my parents' home over there.
