Valentine’s Day: Overtime

Sukiyaki by Kyu Sakamoto

This song is just beautiful in any language. It is also timeless. *

Lyrics [English translation in video]

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni
Omoidasu harunohi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Ue o muite arukou
Nijinda hosi o kazoete
Omoidasu natsunohi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Shiawase wa kumo no ueni
Shiawase wa sora no ueni

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni
Nakinagara aruku
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Omoidasu akinohi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Kanashimi wa hosino kageni
Kanashimi wa tsukino kageni

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni
Nakinagara aruku
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore naiyouni

* Dedicated to the beautiful women who occupied Kyalami with me this past weekend, to make up for reciting such a weak poem.
