A.B.C-Z OTAGAI☆SUMMER Lyric Translation

The third Fumi solo. Fumi didn’t write the lyrics for this one but somehow it’s just as quintessentially Fumi-esque as the other two. It’s a “cool” song about hitting on a girl  but the more you delve into the lyrics the more lame, awkward and Fumi it becomes.

As a note: I added in the “clap clap clap” parts because I feel these are essential to the song. These parts are not in the official lyrics so I have just written what I think he’s saying, Please tell me if you think I have made a mistake.

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

 

We’re “Acrobat Boys Club”

Don’t you know “Acrobat Boys Club”

Let me hear you say “Acrobat Boys Club”

Everybody say “Acrobat Boys Club”

 

Are you a good girl? I’m not a bad boy

You don’t need to be a good girl

You only live once I don’t want to regret it

For now I just want to get your number

 

Pump it up, Goddess, I have but one wish

Jump it up, I understand

But you’ve got me begging up and down

 

I guess anything will do I’ll have to try it

I’ll have to try it It’s easy to understand

The ABCZ of Beauty and the Beast’s love

 

A Action That’s the ability to take action in love

B Balance Never shaking Never wavering Never smouldering

C Communication Conversational power

D Deeper than Ocean Deeper than the ocean

Ah… This feel great

Z…

 

Clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap clap

If you don’t know now you know

 

Together with you loving and being loved

Even though just that would really be enough

Neither one of them alone would be bad

Only love will be each other’s summer time 4 ever

 

Together with me loving and being loved

Even though just that would really be enough

Neither one of them alone would be bad

Only love will be each other’s summer time 4 ever

 

To me you are an unrivalled beauty

There’s no doubt you’d make a good wife and mother in the future

A supportive wife Take three steps down

Turn the emotion up My ideal girlfriend

 

What’s on the inside is more important than what’s on the outside

You wouldn’t drop a mark during grading

Your hair, the way you talk, the way you move your body

Worrying isn’t playing so

 

5 I have the World held in my five fingers

4 What do you want to eat? Italian? Thai? Vietnamese pho?*

3 Huh? You’re three measurements from the top are 85 58 88!?**

2 I’m finally used to it just being us two.

1 Let’s become one tonight!

 

Clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap

Everybody clap clap clap clap

Everybody clap your hands

 

Together with you loving and being loved

Even though just that would really be enough

Neither one of them alone would be bad

Only love will be each other’s summer time 4 ever

 

Together with me loving and being loved

Even though just that would really be enough

Neither one of them alone would be bad

Only love will be each other’s summer time 4 ever

Alive forever

 

*In Japanese, pho is pronounced the same as English four

 

**Three measurements meaning bust, waist, hips
