Shishihagemai Lyrics



Composition, Arrangement, Lyrics: Masako Oogami (大上昌子)
Vocals: Masako Oogami (大上昌子) as Shishimai; Yoshihito Yano (矢野義人) as Namahage

Japanese
ぼくシシマイ 大きな顔 (boku shishimai ookina kao)
五穀豊穣 秋祭り (gokokuhoujou aki-matsuri)
きみナマハゲ 禿げてない?! (kimi namahage hagetenai?!)
無病息災 大みそか (mubyou sokusai oomisoka)

どんな懸命働けど (donna kenmei hatarakedo)
どうも子供にゃ好かれない (doumo kodomo nya sukarenai)
こんなことならいっそのこと (konna kotonara isso no koto)
海を越え (umi o koe)
「シーサーになりたぁい!」("shisa ni narita~i!")

「怠け者はいないかあ?! (namakemono wa inai ka?!)
 怠け者の臭いがする、、、 (namakemono no nioi ga suru...)
 わしやあナマハゲじゃあ! (washi yaa namahage jaa!)
 怠け者は臭いがする (namakemono wa nioi ga suru)
 病気するな、怪我するな、 (byouki suru na, kega suru na,)
 来年もまた来るぞー!」 (rainen mo mata kuru zo~!)

屋根の上 南風 (yane no ue minami kaze)
ラフテー ソーキ シークワーサー (rafute, soki, shequasar)
エイサーも踊りたいね (eisa mo odoritai ne)
きっといつか シーサーさ! (kitto itsuka shisa sa!)

English translation
I am Shishimai, with a large face
A fall festival of bumper crops
You are Namahage, so you're not bald?!
Sound health to the end of the year

Whatever gruelling work you do, but
Not much liked by kids
Better yet in case of such a thing
Crossing the ocean
"I wanna be a shisa!"

"Are there not lazy ones here?!
I smell lazy ones...
I am the Namahage
Lazy ones smells
Don't be sick, don't be injured
And I'll come again next year!"

Southerly winds over the roof
Rafute, soki and shequasar
Wanting to dance the Eisa too
Surely someday, gonna shisa!
