[LYRICS & TRANSLATION] Hey! Say! JUMP - Hana Ichi Monme


This one took longer than usual to finish because I had quite the fun of researching around. It was the first time I heard of the traditional Japanese game Hana Ichi Monme so I did a lot of reading while at it. xD

Please read the notes below for better understanding of the translation.

A flower is one Monme

ROMAJI

"Yoi ya, 'misometa' wa kitari"
Ashioto mo tatezu Hyuudororo Hyuudororo
Shirohata! Kousan! Kanpai!

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

"It's evening, the 'seen' comes"
Footsteps can't be heard, Hyuudororo Hyuudororo*
White flag! Surrender! Complete defeat!
Ahead of the eye sight, Thump Thump, is a labyrinth

A piece from the multitude of beauty
Being lured to the sound of the wind, Hyuudororo Hyuudororo
It can't be restored to its original form
It's a fire extinguishing heart, is it a pure love or a wanting love?**

Even though I don't write a To do list
I can't go home without touching you
I want that girl; which girl?***
Before you go there, come over here
Depending on the situation, love will bloom

Sweeping you away, a flower is one monme
Ringing heels, look it's You and Me
Making me yours, a flower is one monme
It's a ceilingless Addiction
Give me one secret, this love's crime is Sweet Sweet
Even your blink is beckoning
I want you so much I can't bear it

Triumphantly being silly and laughing
Is it calculated? Let me love you   Let me love you
This distance is near and far
With my hair tied up, look back at me

Even though I don't write a To do list
I can't go home without touching you
Infront of you, I don't know what ways to establish
Sweeter than a kiss, don't look at me
Beyond imagination, love will bloom

Sweeping you away, a flower is one monme
Until the temperature rises, You and Me
Making me yours, a flower is one monme
Not minding how much you pretend, it's an Addiction
Get to know me at least, now get Deep Deep
A mean puzzling Bully
I want you so much I can't bear it

Suddenly springing out, no one understands
Like the eyes getting dizzied, it can't be caught with words
Like heaven and earth, from Before to After
I don't want anyone else to take the beautiful you

I want that girl (I want that girl)
Which girl? (Which girl?)
I want that girl (I want that girl)
Which girl? (Which girl?)

I want that girl; which girl?
Before you go there, come over here
Beyond imagination, love will bloom

"See you."

Sweeping you away, a flower is one monme
Ringing heels, look it's You and Me
Making me yours, a flower is one monme
It's a ceilingless Addiction
Give me one secret, this love's crime is Sweet Sweet
Even your blink is beckoning
I want you so much I can't bear it

TRANSLATION NOTES:

  1. Hana Ichi Monme is a traditional Japanese children's game. It means "A flower is one monme" in which monme refers to a historical Edo period coin. Monme is also literally a unit of weight (approx. 3.75 g) so the phrase could either mean "a flower is worth 1 Edo period coin" or "a flower is as heavy as 3.75 g). Most references I've read are all slanted to the former.

  2. Most lyrics translation of songs that used the phrase "Hana Ichi Monme" I've found around the web left the phrase as is. I preferred translating it to its literal meaning.

​* hyuudororo = the sound ghost makes in Japanese (I can't find an English onomatopoeai equivalent)

** both Ai & Koi means love in English but the essence of the two words in Japanese differs (see Ref.)

*** ano ko ga hoshii, ano ko ja wakaran - this is in reference to the song used in the game. In the game, it's translated as "I want that kid; we don't know which kid" but I translated it slightly different here to fit JUMP-kun's song. Ko(子) can both mean "kid/child" and/or "girl"
