NOTES
For those who are unaware, enka are traditional Japanese ballads. They're widely known as the musical choice of Japan's older generation, being that enka vocalists are normally (but not always) older men and women who wail about sorrows involving lost loves, and leaving their hometowns. The phrase "hana yori dango" ("Dumplings over flowers'), is an old Japanese saying. It's similiar to something along the lines of "fair words fill not the belly", or something to that effect. Also, the title of the song is a bit of a play on words. The kanji for "sakura" here is pronounced "ou" (this is where we get "Oh! Enka", from "ou enka").

(Spoken)
Why is it......When I look at the cherry blossoms, I get so sad.
Dad, mom......one day,
I'm going to bloom a flower too! Just watch!

A number of years have passed since I left my hometown
I love my home town, it blooms in my dreams

Everyone, make your dreams bloom together; everyone, make your flowers bloom together

I've smartly decided that I'm in the mood for a quick cherry blossom viewing
This world is both shrewd and level headed, it's dumplings over flowers
A quick and fickle love is in a flower that's in the full bloom of spring
I'll be entranced by any girl; even if she's ugly, I'll think her beautiful

Ah, even if I'm moved to tears, bound by honor and humanity
There is a flower that wholeheartedly believes in love

The cherry blossoms bloom, spring has come; I'll make happiness bloom
One day it will scatter to the winds, that's why we live

Everyone, make your dreams bloom together; everyone, make your flowers bloom together

It's time to get a good spot for a little bit of a cherry blossom viewing party
Everything is going fine, it's a snap
I'm feeling just a little drunk, I want to get close to that girl
But the truth is, it's not going to be that easy

Ah, I leave myself to the wind that blows fate for this fleeting lifetime
There is a flower that I'll make bloom wholeheartedly with life

The cherry blossoms bloom, spring has come; life is awakening
No matter what kind of winter it is, spring will come; the cherry blossoms sing

The falling cherry blossoms shine, they shine fleetingly
This world of people shines, it shines sadly

A number of years have passed since I left my hometown
I love my home town, it blooms in my dreams

The cherry blossoms bloom, spring has come; I'll make happiness bloom
One day it will scatter to the winds, that's why we live

The falling cherry blossoms shine, they shine fleetingly
This world of people shines, it shines sadly
