Ganbaranakutemo Iin Da Yo
(You Don't Have To Work Hard)

S/mileage

Romaji by Project Hello

The difference between this and Ganbaranakutemo Ee Nen De is that some of the lines in Ganbaranakutemo Ee Nen De, including the title, are in Osaka dialect, while in this song they're in standard Tokyo dialect. The meaning doesn’t change.

You don’t have to work hard
If you work too hard you’ll get tired
You don’t have to work hard
Take a deep breath, yeah yeah yeah yeah

You’re not the worst
Constant regret won’t get you anywhere
Everyone can see you’re trying
So just carry on with what you’re doing now, let’s go!

In a mere 100 years
The landscape has changed big-time
Even Ryoma couldn’t have imagined
That the times would change
So much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much, much…happy night!

Don’t work too hard, be super-relaxed
Don’t work too hard, be super-flexible
We’re starved of love
So slowly reach out your arms and
Hug, hug, hug, hug, hug us

If you’ve worked too hard then refresh yourself right away
If you’ve worked too hard then go on holiday right away
Even now, when we don’t know what will happen in our retirement years
Let’s keep a wonderful
Smile, smile, smile, smile, smile
As we go!

You don’t have to work hard
If you work too hard you won’t be able to keep it up
You don’t have to work hard
Take a break, yeah yeah yeah yeah

The grass isn’t greener on the other side
You don’t need to think so lowly of yourself
You’re doing enough as it is
Go at your own pace, let’s go!

We live longer than anyone else in the world
If we don’t enjoy our lives it’s real boring
If these are the times we live in
Then let’s take it easy, wow wow wow wow
Wow wow wow wow wow wow wow wow peace!

Don’t work too hard, Dad
Don’t work too hard, Mum
We don’t have enough warmth
So slowly reach out your arms and
Hug, hug, hug, hug, hug us

You’ve been working too hard, brother
You’ve been working too hard, sister
Let’s eat something yummy!
Let’s decorate Japan
With wonderful
Smiles, smiles, smiles, smiles, smiles!
