WA ni Natte Odorou

Let's Dance Together

Sung by: V6
Translated by: Mina-P (Email: Minako@senshigakuen.com)
Version 1.10

Note: I've wanted to translate this song for a while, for two main reasons. A) This is such an amazingly upbeat, uplifting song. You just want to sing it and let your troubles melt away in a V6 powered mush. Plus, B) the lyrics are so incredibly simple. Basically, figure out a way to translate the title, and that's half the song done right there. Wai~! Literally, the title means something like, "Let's dance in a circle." As that sounds remarkably lame in English, I changed it slightly, but you get the idea. (not that my change sounds any less lame... but they're idols; they can live with cheesiness.) Thanks to an e-mail, I discovered that this is the same title as an old, seemingly festival related song sung by a female chorus. Coincidence? I think not~!


ujaketa kao shite doshita no
tsumaranai nara     hora ne
wa ni natte odoro     minna de
asobi mo benkyou mo shita kedo
wakaranai koto darake     nara
wa ni natte odoro     ima sugu
kanashii koto ga areba mou sugu
tanoshii koto ga aru kara
shinjitemiyou
o~o~     saa wa ni natte odoro
rararara~ sugu ni wakaru kara
o~o~     saa wa ni natte odoro
rararara~ yume o kanaeru yo

Why do you look like you're crumbling
If you're bored     then look
Let's dance together     with everyone
You played and you studied
But you don't get a thing     then
Let's dance together     right now
If there're sad things, then pretty soon
There'll be happy things
Try to believe
oh~oh~     Now let's dance together
lalalala~ You'll understand soon
oh~oh~     Now let's dance together
lalalala~ Your dreams'll be granted

If there's a girl that you like
Don't be shy
Let's dance together     with everyone
It's fine to become an adult
But don't you forget     ever
Just dance together     whenever you want
Even when you're alone
There's always someone
Watching over you
oh~oh~     Now let's dance together
lalalala~ You'll understand soon
oh~oh~     Now let's dance together
lalalala~ Your dreams'll be granted

If there're sad things, then pretty soon
There'll be happy things
Try to believe
oh~oh~     Now let's dance together
lalalala~ You'll understand soon
oh~oh~     Now let's dance together

Lyrics belong to Oshamanbe Tarou and Avex Trax, taken from the Nature Rhythm album, AVCD-11576 (track 14). Not like the words make any sense if you haven't heard the song, anyway. Romanized and translated into English very badly by Mina-P, with desperately needed help, as always, by Mako-chan. Any comments or corrections can be mailed to Mina-P at Minako@senshigakuen.com.
