Vocaloid (Hatsune Miku) – Nonsense Bungaku

November 29, 2017

Nonsense Bungaku – ナンセンス文学 – Literary Nonsense

感情的にはなれない 今更臆病になって
研ぎ澄んだ言の刃 大事そう 抱え笑って
ドクドクドク ハイテンション
吸って吸って 吐き出せない
へそまがりなアンタに嫌気がさしていく

kanjouteki ni wa narenai imasara okubyou ni natte
togisunda koto no yaiba daijisou kakae waratte
DOKUDOKUDOKU HAI TENSHON
sutte sutte hakidasenai
hesomagari na ANTA ni iyake ga sashite iku

Unable to become sentimental, become cowardly again
Tenderly cradling a sharpened blade of words, laugh
Gushing, gushing excitement
Suck it in, suck it in, but you can’t spit it out
I’m sick of you and your contrariness

真昼のランデブー
ビビディバビデブー
孤独の愛を 注いであげましょう
心が病んでく 僕らは今日
生まれ変わりましょう

mahiru no RANDEBUU
BIBIDI BABIDE BUU
kodoku no ai o sosoide agemashou
kokoro ga yande’ku bokura wa kyou
umarekawarimashou

A midafternoon rendezvous
Bibbidi-bobbidi-boo
I’ll shower you in lonely love
We, with our hearts growing sick,
Will be reborn today

僕ら
馬鹿になって 宙を舞って
今だけは忘れてラッタッタ(ラッタッタ)
踊りあかそう この夜を沸かそう
涙はほいっ して 眠らないように
嘘になって しまわぬように
僕じゃない僕にもラッタッタ(ラッタッタ)
最低で憂鬱な日々でさえ
君となら僕は明かしてみたい

bokura
baka ni natte chuu o matte
ima dake wa wasurete RATTATTA (RATTATTA)
odoriakasou kono yoru o wakasou
namida wa hoi shite nemuranai you ni
uso ni natte shimawanu you ni
boku ja nai boku ni mo RATTATTA (RATTATTA)
saitei de yuuutsu na hibi de sae
kimi to nara boku wa akashite mitai

We
Become idiots, dance in midair
And forget about the present, rat-tat-tat (rat-tat-tat)
Let’s dance ’til it’s light, let’s heat up the night
So we can give tears the heave-ho and not sleep
So that it doesn’t end up becoming a lie
To the me that isn’t me, rat-tat-tat (rat-tat-tat)
Even on the days when I feel the most melancholy
I want to try revealing my secrets, as long as it’s you I’m revealing them to

ほらほらそこのお嬢さん 今更臆病になって
ぬりつぶされてしまった 黒く深く灰になって
ドキドキドキ 背徳感
待ってだって なんて冗談
嘘ばかりなアンタにXXX

hora hora soko no ojousan imasara okubyou ni natte
nuritsubusarete shimatta kuroku fukaku hai ni natte
DOKIDOKIDOKI haitokukan
matte datte nante joudan
uso bakari na ANTA ni XXX

Hey, hey, you over there, young lady, become cowardly again
Turn into deep black ash that’s been blotted out
A heart-pounding, heart-pounding feeling of corruption
Wait- but- you must be kidding
I’ll XXX you and all your lies

「ホントの僕はいないんだって
自分”らしく”なんて無いんだって
あなたと アナタが 僕のことをこうだって
それぞれ思うことがあるでしょう
どれも違う 正解なんてないよ」
なんて 馬鹿にされてしまうだろな

“HONTO no boku wa inai n’datte
jibun ‘rashiku’ nante nai n’datte
anata to ANATA ga boku no koto o kou datte
sorezore omou koto ga aru deshou
dore mo chigau seikai nante nai yo”
nante baka ni sarete shimau daro na

“The real me doesn’t exist,
There’s nothing that’s ‘like me’ or ‘not like me’
Since you and YOU are begging me like this
You must each have your own thoughts
They’re all wrong; there’s no right answer”
I’ve been made a fool of, huh?

愛を知って 傷つけあって
それでも僕らはラッタッタ(ラッタッタ)
想い明かそう この夜を明かそう
涙はほいっ して 眠らないように
今日も僕は歌を唄って
僕じゃない僕にもラッタッタ(ラッタッタ)
最終兵器を忍ばせて
余裕ぶった君が嗤っていた

ai o shitte kizutsukeatte
soredemo bokura wa RATTATTA (RATTATTA)
omoiakasou kono yoru o akasou
namida wa hoi shite nemuranai you ni
kyou mo boku wa uta o utatte
boku ja nai boku ni mo RATTATTA (RATTATTA)
saishuu heiki o shinobasete
yoyuu butta kimi ga waratte ita

Knowing love, hurting one another
Even so, we rat-tat-tat (rat-tat-tat)
Let’s share our feelings, let’s light up this night
So we can give tears the heave-ho and not sleep
Today I’m singing my song again
To the me that isn’t me, rat-tat-tat (rat-tat-tat)
Hiding the ultimate weapon,
You sneered, pretending it’s all easy for you

感情的にはならない 今更恐怖はないな
研ぎ澄んだ言の刃 何1つ無駄はないな
ドクドクドク ハイテンション
吸って吸って 吐き出して
へそまがりなアンタにはもう飽き飽きだ

kanjouteki ni wa naranai imasara kyoufu wa nai na
togisunda koto no yaiba nani hitotsu muda wa nai na
DOKUDOKUDOKU HAI TENSHON
sutte sutte hakidashite
hesomagari na ANTA ni wa mou akiaki da

I won’t be sentimental; I’m not afraid anymore
With a sharpened blade of words, nothing is useless
Gushing, gushing excitement
Suck it in, suck it in, spit it out
I’m so fed up already with you and your contrariness

真昼のランデブー ビビディバビデブー
孤独の愛を 注いであげましょう
魔法も 解けて 枯れる前に
生まれ変わりましょう

mahiru RANDEBUU BIBIDI BABIDE BUU
kodoku no ai o sosoide agemashou
mahou mo tokete kareru mae ni
umarekawarimashou

A midafternoon rendezvous, bibbidi-bobbidi-boo
I’ll shower you with lonely love
Before the spell is broken and we wither away
Let’s be reborn

僕ら
馬鹿になって 宙を舞って
今だけは忘れてラッタッタ(ラッタッタ)
踊りあかそう この夜を沸かそう
涙はほいっ して 眠らないように
嘘になって しまわぬように
僕じゃない僕にもラッタッタ(ラッタッタ)
絶対的ナンセンスな事でさえ
君になら僕は任せてみたい

bokura
baka ni natte chuu o matte
ima dake wa wasurete RATTATTA (RATTATTA)
odoriakesou kono yoru o wakasou
namida wa poi shite nemuranai you ni
uso ni natte shimawanu you ni
boku ja nai boku ni mo RATTATTA (RATTATTA)
zettaiteki NANSENSU na koto de sae
kimi ni nara boku wa makasete mitai

We
Become idiots, dance in midair
And forget about the present, rat-tat-tat (rat-tat-tat)
Let’s dance ’til it’s light, let’s heat up the night
So we can give tears the heave-ho and not sleep
So that it doesn’t end up becoming a lie
To the me that isn’t me, rat-tat-tat (rat-tat-tat)
Even with things that are absolute nonsense,
I want to try leaving them up to someone else, as long as that someone is you

Notes:

“Nonsense bungaku” is the Japanese term for what in English is called “literary nonsense,” a category of literature that employs elements that are meaningless, incoherent, or lacking internal consistency. The use of meaningless made-up words is a common feature of literary nonsense, especially in poetry and music. This song’s use of “rat-tat-tat” is probably intended in that way; “bibbidi-bobbidi-boo” may be as well, to a lesser extent, as (especially on the second repetition) some meaning can be made out of it by understanding it as a reference to Disney’s Cinderella.

(Original lyrics by Eve)
