Lyrics - Rōmaji

(Japanese folk song)

Yukiya konko, arareya kon ko
Futtewa futtewa zunzun tsumoru
Yamamo noharamo watabōshi kaburi
Kareki nokorazu hanaga saku.

Yukiya konko, arareya kon ko
Futtemo futtemo mada furiyamanu
Inuwa yorokobi niwa kakemawari
Nekowa kotatsude marukunaru.

English Translation - Snow

Snow is falling, hail is falling,
It’s falling and it’s falling and piling up
Mountains and fields are wearing a cotton hat,
Flowers bloom on bare trees.

Snow is falling, hail is falling,
It falls and it doesn’t stop,
The dog is happy and runs around the garden,
The cat curls up next to a fireplace.

Japanese - 雪

雪やこんこ、あられやこんこ
降っては降ってはずんずん積もる
山も野原も綿帽子かぶり
枯れ木残らず花が咲く。

雪やこんこ、あられやこんこ
降っても降ってもまだ降りやまぬ
犬は喜び庭かけまわり
猫はこたつで丸くなる。
