Lyrics – Transliteration

1. Nenneko shasshari mase,
Neta ko no kawaisa.
Okite naku ko no
Nenkororo, tsura nikusa.
Nenkororon, nenkororon.

2. Nenneko shasshari mase,
Kyō wa nijūgo-nichi sa.
Asu wa kono ko no,
Nenkororo, Miya-mairi.
Nenkororon, nenkororon.

3. Miya e maitta toki,
Nan to yūte ogamu sa.
Issho kono ko no,
Nenkororo, mame na yō ni.
Nenkororon, nenkororon.

Translation – Chūgoku Region Lullaby

1. Hushabye, sleep!
How cute is the face of the baby fallen asleep,
The baby who is awake and cries,
Hushabye, how hateful his face looks!
Hushabye!

2. Hushabye, sleep!
Today is the 25th day of his birth.
Tomorrow we will go,
Hushabye, to the shrine,
Hushabye!

3. Arriving at the shrine,
what will you pray for?
Through his life, may he be,
Hushabye, healthy!
Hushabye!

Japanese – 中国地方の子守唄

ねんねこ しゃっしゃりませ
寝た子の 可愛さ
起きて 泣く子の
ねんころろ つらにくさ
ねんころろん ねんころろん

ねんねこ しゃっしゃりませ
きょうは 二十五日さ
あすは この子の
ねんころろ 宮詣り
ねんころろん ねんころろん

宮へ 詣った時
なんと言うて 拝むさ
一生 この子の
ねんころろ まめなように
ねんころろん ねんころろん
