Romaji

Aa umaku dekimasen

Aa nazeka ama no jaku

Senpai

English

Ah, I like to sing
But I can’t do it very well
Ah, for some reason I’m perverse
I can’t be demure or anything

But surely, surely, he
Sulks, and hesitates a bit before he calls
Just like me

Am I pretty today?
Is it OK if I get up the nerve to call you?
Am I sexy today?
If I told you straight out how I feel, would you be calm about it, Senpai*?

Ah, I definitely can’t do it
But it’s good that I’ve got this far
Ah, I made a big promise to myself
Will that turn out to be a lie? What should I do?

But please, please
Give me the inner strength
To yell out with love

Am I full of energy today?
Is it OK if I laugh out loud?
Am I blunter today?
Do you like girls who are individuals, Senpai?

La la la la…

Senpai

*In Japanese schools, junior students have to show respect for senior students by addressing them as Senpai (Senior), either after their name in place of san (eg “Abe-senpai”) or instead of their name, as Momusu do here.
