Romaji by Project Hello

Note: There’s no way to keep this in the translation, but if you look at the kana lyrics, you can see that the verses are also a play on “desu ka” (are you---?, is it---?, do you---?, who---?, what---?, etc) and “ska”. So just this once I’m including capitalisation of katakana (normally when I gank romaji with capitalised katakana I use the handy dandy Aa button in Word to get rid of it because I don’t believe in it), as this katakana was specifically there to emphasise the pun.

And seriously, click the “I don’t believe in it” link if you haven’t already. It leads to a video that made my entire family crack up for ages.

English

Would you hate it if I was too in love with you?
What will become of Japan’s spirit?
Do you like ska-ska beats?
I wanna get to know you, yeah!

Who do you love?
What kind of cake are you gonna have tonight?
What’s gonna be huge this year?
I so want to know

Oh, there are so many temptations
On this planet
Let’s cleverly dodge them
And make our dreams come true

For real? Ska!

Let’s stay positive all the time
And grow really bright flowers

You’ve gotta let me introduce you
To my family one day
Forgive them if they’re noisy

Do you hate that I talk a lot?
Why don’t let the mood of this restaurant take you?
Gonna move to a ska-ska beat?
I wanna get to know you, yeah!

Are you free on our next day off?
Do you reckon summer will be hot this year?
What’s your favourite mode?
I so want to know

Oh, I’ve got so many friends
In this town
I wanna brag
That I’ve got heaps of mates

For real? Ska!

Let’s make even days like this special
And grow really bright flowers

I bet I’ll end up with a family
Just like Mum’s
And I’ll say “I’m happy!”

Just like Mum’s
