Zui zui zuk korobashi

Lyrics - Romaji

(Japanese folk song)

Zui zui zuk korobashi
goma miso zui
cha tsubo ni owarete
top pinshan
nuketara , don doko sho
tawara no nezumi ga
beishoku tte chi  ,
chi yūchūchū
ot to san ga yonde mo ,
okkasan ga yonde mo ,
ikik konashiyo
ido no mawari de o
chawan kaita nodāre

Zui zui zukkorobashi
Goma miso zui,
Chatsubo ni owarete toppinshan,
Nuketara dondokosho,
Tawara no nezumi
Ga kome kutte chu chu chu chu.
Ottosan ga yondemo,
Okkasan ga yondemo,
Ikkiko nashi yo,
Ido no mawari de
Ochawan kaita no dare?

English Translation - Smash, smash as always

Smash, smash as always,
The sesame miso paste, smash,
Procession with tea jar tribute, crack, crack,
Run to the house, rat-a-tat,
Everyone leaves and goes inside, slam
Even if mice are eating
From the bale of rice, squeek,
Squeek, squeek, squeek,
Even if father calls,
Even if mother calls,
Do not go home,
They’ll ask, “Who broke the rice bowl near the well?”

Japanese - ずいずいずっころばし

ずいずいずっころばし
ごまみそずい
茶壷に追われて
とっぴんしゃん
抜けたら、どんどこしょ
俵のねずみが
米食ってちゅう、
ちゅうちゅうちゅう
おっとさんが呼んでも、
おっかさんが呼んでも、
いきっこなしよ
井戸の周りで お
茶碗欠いたのだあれ?
