A.B.C-Z Cheat Time Lyric Translation

Yay~ New Ebi songs! Cheat Time is based off a “cheat day” where you take some time out to treat yourself. Ebi is telling us to take a break from always working so hard and do something for ourselves!

Original Japanese: Utaten

English translation

 

Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh

Wo oh oh Wo oh oh oh

Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh

Wo oh oh Wo oh Wo oh

 

When you see someone’s expression

Trying to work out what they think is stressful Don’t Think, Feel

The things that you have to do

Continuing to do them is actually what’s amazing!

 

“Cheer cheer cheer cheer” for yourself

Isn’t it ok to treat yourself every once in a while?

Singing Dancing

Is it alright if I explode?

Throw out the pleasantries, release your shackles and Go!

 

Cheat OK! Cheat Alright! Right now it’s Cheat Time

Do this do that! Do it just for now!

Cheat Ok! Cheat Alright! Until the music stops

Wo oh oh Wo oh oh

This much will be perfect! This much is perfect!

Can’t I just Go my way?

 

Keep chasing your dreams

Fighting every day is stressful Don’t say “No”

Things don’t go smoothly easily

Seeing things through is seriously what’s amazing!

 

“Cheer cheer cheer cheer” over and over for yourself

It’s fine to spoil yourself every once in a while, right?

The things you like

Is it ok to go crazy with them?

Forget all the things you hate, be free and Go!

 

Cheat OK! Cheat Alright! Just for now it’s Cheat Time

Eat what you like! I’ll treat you!

Cheat Ok! Cheat Alright! Until the music stops

Wo oh oh Wo oh oh

This much will be perfect! This much is perfect!

Can’t I just Go my way?

 

Cheat OK! Cheat Alright! Right now it’s Cheat Time

Do this do that! Do it just for now!

Cheat Ok! Cheat Alright! Until the music stops

Wo oh oh Wo oh oh

Cheat Time over! Energy charge complete!

From tomorrow fight! Fighting!

 

Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh

Wo oh oh Wo oh oh oh

Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh Wo oh

Wo oh oh Wo oh Wo oh
