A.B.C-Z Nothin’ but funky Lyric Translation

I’m ba~ck! With translations from Ebi’s new single “Nothin’ but funky”. The title song is a disco bop about… um… I’m not sure? The lyrics are hectic, from Fumi telling us all he’s “not a porpoise” to Tottsu going to “cook some rice” 😅 I think it’s about giving up everything and leaving town to be with someone, but interpret as you will!

Original Japanese: Utaten

English Translation

Nothin’ but funky

The greatest HAPPY

I can’t take these floaty rings anymore What am I, a porpoise?

With a pleasant whoosh! I’ll tell all my rivals in Tomakomai Bye! (Boom Boom Boom)

A brand new cobalt car

No ways no means no nothing

A wine red tiny memory

Here there etc etc 

Sha la la Cook some rice 

Nothin’ but funky

The greatest HAPPY

Dancing in the mainstream 

Gotta have lucky

A to the B to the C to the Z to the EASY GO!!

Maybe Maybe Maybe

I’m a fool

The chandelier sways Next stop Shangri-La 

Reality sucks is a lie, we’re doing great!

When we learn (discover) then maybe (a cause for celebration) this will be the start of our story

On a dynamite impulse 

I want to hitch a hike

Endless as the alphabet 

Champagne towers here and there 

Sha la la Take a shower 

The greatest HAPPY

Dancing in the mainstream 

Gotta have lucky

A to the B to the C to the Z to the EASY GO!!

Maybe Maybe Maybe

I’m a fool

Chandelier If we’re together until morning

I’ll tell you all my secret thoughts 

The fact we met (just the number) the weight of it (Life) 

This will be the start of our story 

Nothin’ but funky

The greatest HAPPY

Dancing in the mainstream 

Gotta have lucky

The greatest HAPPY

Dancing in the mainstream 

Gotta have lucky

A to the B to the C to the Z to the EASY GO!!

Maybe Maybe Maybe

I’m a fool

Sha la la…
