Romaji

Konya wa kareshi ga uchi ni kuru
Minna sowasowa to matteru
Uchi mo sowasowa to matteru

Mada ka mada ka
Aiya iya iya iya

Kaachan daidokoro de sode makuri
Reizouko ni aru mono chekku shiteru
Kaidashi suru mono kakidashite

Niku ya negi ya
Ah! Ito konnyaku to ka

Konna hi wa yappa sukiyaki
A~ medetai na sukiyaki
Tenshon agaru sukiyaki

Kareshi mo ichi ichi denwa shite
Kocchi no yousu wo ukagatte
Densha norisugoshitan da tte

Mada ka mada ka
Aiya iya iya iya

Imouto otsukai dekakete wa
Kaiwasure hin wo kai ni yuku
Toochan shinbun yomu furi

Enoki haruna
Ah! Yakidoufu doufu doufu

Nante shoukai wo shiyou ka na
Yoi tomodachi de ii no ka na?
Ano hito mutto suru no ka na?

Youyaku minna ga desorotte
Ii guai ni nanka hajimatta
Toochan harikitte shikitteru

Mada ya mada ya
A ii yo ii yo ii yo ii yo

Kaiwa wa izen to supootsu de
Uchi wa hairu yochi nai mama
Bootto egao kiipu shite

Shouyu satou
Namatamago mago mago

Nichiyou no yoru no sukiyaki
Makafushigi da yo sukiyaki
Nihon no kokoro sukiyaki

Ano hito ganbatte yonzen mo
Yoshiyoshi yoiko de arimashita
Nagonda yoru de yokatta
Tanomoshii anata suki da yo

My boyfriend’s coming to my house tonight
Everyone’s waiting impatiently
I'm waiting impatiently too

Still not here yet? Still not here yet?
Oh, come on, come on, come on

Mum’s rolled up her sleeves in the kitchen
She’s checking what’s in the fridge
And writing down what she needs to buy

Meat, and leeks
Ah! And konnyaku noodles

On a day like this, of course, we’re having sukiyaki
Ah, what an occasion – sukiyaki!
The tension’s rising – sukiyaki!

My boyfriend called
And asked every detail of what’s going on here
“I missed your station on the train”

Still not here yet? Still not here yet?
Oh, come on, come on, come on

I’ve sent my little sister out
To buy the things we’ve forgotten
Dad’s pretending to read the paper

Enoki mushrooms, haruna*
Ah! Fried tofu, tofu, tofu

How should I introduce him?
Should I just say he's a good friend?
Will he go into a huff about that?

At last, everyone comes out to meet him
It’s begun well
Dad’s running the show enthusiastically

He’s not here yet, he’s not here yet
Oh, that’s OK, that’s OK, that’s OK, that’s OK

They're still talking about sports
Unable to get inside
I keep a vague smile

Soy sauce, sugar
Raw eggs, eggs, eggs

Sukiyaki on a Sunday night
Sukiyaki – it’s a mystery
Sukiyaki – it’s the heart of Japan

You managed 4 helpings
What a good boy you were
I'm glad things went so well
I love how reliable you are
