Romaji

Manatsu ni umareta watashi no tanjoubi
Hatachi no natsu yo
Manatsu ni umareta watashi no tanjoubi
Koi no yokan!

Mou sugu natsu da wa
Atsui natsu kashira?
Atarashii mizugi kite
Umi ni ikitai wa

Inaka ni mo kaeritai
Sou yo! Hokkaidou
Imoutotachi ni mo nanika
Omiyage wo kaou!

Manatsu ni umareta watashi no tanjoubi
Hatachi no natsu yo
Manatsu ni umareta watashi no tanjoubi
Koi no yokan!
Ah koi no yokan

Toukyou no natsu mo
Hawai mo ii kedo
Hokkoku no natsu mo ii
Yappa matenai wa!

Manatsu wa ichiban daisuki na kisetsu yo
Hatachi no natsu wa
Manatsu ni ichiban daisuki na dareka to
Koi wo shiyou!

Manatsu ni umareta watashi no tanjoubi
Hatachi no natsu yo
Manatsu ni umareta watashi no tanjoubi
Koi no yokan!
Ah koi no yokan
Ah koi no yokan

English

I was born in the middle of summer, and now it’s my birthday
This summer I’m going to be 20
I was born in the middle of summer, and now it’s my birthday
I’ve got a hunch there’s love waiting for me!

It’s going to be summer soon
Will it be a hot summer?
I want to buy a new swimsuit
And go to the beach

I also want to go home to the country
That’s right! To Hokkaido*
I’d better buy some souvenirs
To take home for my little sisters

I was born in the middle of summer, and now it’s my birthday
This summer I’m going to be 20
I was born in the middle of summer, and now it’s my birthday
I’ve got a hunch there’s love waiting for me!
Ah, I’ve got a hunch there’s love waiting for me!

I like Tokyo in the summer
And Hawaii too
I like the north of Japan in summer too
I can’t wait!

The middle of summer is my absolute favourite season
In the summer I turn 20
I’m going to fall in love in the middle of summer
With the person I love the most!

I was born in the middle of summer, and now it’s my birthday
This summer I’m going to be 20
I was born in the middle of summer, and now it’s my birthday
I’ve got a hunch there’s love waiting for me!
Ah, I’ve got a hunch there’s love waiting for me!
Ah, I’ve got a hunch there’s love waiting for me!

*The northernmost island of Japan, which is where Natsumi was born
