Lyrics & Music : Iijima Ken
作詩・作曲:イイジマケン

NOTES
"ohanami" or "cherry blossom viewing" is the act of viewing the falling cherry blossoms, or even cherry blossoms that are still on the trees. This is often done in large public places such as parks. Sometimes tarps or blankets are laid down, and a group will sit on that tarp or blanket and look at the cherry blossoms. Cherry blossom viewing may or may not be accompanied by plenty of alcohol! The second two lines in this song are full of nonsensical words that I'm guessing are supposed to represent drunken singing. A "someiyoshino" is a specific type of cherry tree (sometimes called a Yoshino Cherry Tree). Since in the lyrics it is getting "toppled", "noshiyoimeso" is "someiyoshino" backward (according to the Japanese syllabic alphabet). The line "hito yo hito yo ni hito migoro" was created to help remember what the square root of 2 is: 1.41421356. In this case each number is converted into one of the Japanese syllables that it can be read as, forming this sentence. The phrase "hana yori dango" (literally "dumplings over flowers") is supposed to convey a meaning of taking the practical over the aesthetic.

Toasting with beer, toasting with juice
Paarira, parira, paarira, fuffu
Paarira, parira, drink up

When a gentle breeze blows on the weeping cherry trees
A flower petal fluttering creation (Fuu)
When you see a Someiyoshino overturned
What on earth is a Noshiyoimeso? (What is it?)

In the cherry blossom front that's going to begin from here, wow wow yeah (Wow wow yeah)
When you get into it, it's a really fast dash from west to east; Wow wow yeah

In being in a disorder and being amidst thought
We're a fluttering variation (Fuu)
If you're laughed at from the left, right, today, and tomorrow
Wouldn't that be lucky? (Wow!)

Holding a spot, sumo rankings, grilled chicken; Wow wow yeah (Wow wow yeah)
Everyone do it, drink up, go on and hug; Wow wow yeah

(It's a show time!!)

Cherry blossom viewing all together, with cups brimming over
Toast and drink; Let's go like this 'till morning
Guzzling, guzzling, groovie, groovie; We're in a groovy mode
I'm giddy from the night cherry blossoms; You, who are a Venus, have a slight fever
Shoobie dooba, shoobie dooba, shoobie dooba, how's your defense?

People who are high spirited and people who aren't
In one night, one night, the best time to see people
Long ago, right now, and in the future ahead, let the flowers bloom, let them bloom; Hey cheers

Even if I say something or other, it's dumplings over flowers
Wow wow yeah (Wow wow yeah)
Barely divided, onigiri, cutting arrowroot; Wow wow yeah

(Let's la party)

Cherry blossom viewing all together, with cups brimming over
Toast and drink; Let's go like this 'till morning
Guzzling, guzzling, groovie, groovie; We're in a groovy mode
I'm giddy from the night cherry blossoms; You, who are a Venus, have a slight fever
Shoobie dooba, shoobie dooba, shoobie dooba, how's your defense?

Cherry blossom viewing all together, with cups brimming over
Toast and drink; Let's go like this 'till morning
Guzzling, guzzling, groovie, groovie; We're in a groovy mode
I'm giddy from the night cherry blossoms; You, who are a Venus, have a slight fever
Shoobie dooba, shoobie dooba, shoobie dooba, how's your defense?
