Mr Children: Dear Wonderful World

August 5, 2008

Dear Wonderful World

02.06.10
Artist: Mr. Children
Title: Dear Wonderful World
Words: Sakurai Kazutoshi
Music: Sakurai Kazutoshi

Oh Baby when the passing showers have let up
why not go for a walk humming a song,
in this ugly beautiful world.

Surely nothing’s been a waste,
for now tell me the story of your life.

Oh Baby why not have a cup of Cappucino
while you wait for the passing showers to let up.
in this ugly beautiful world.

Translated By: Brian Stewart & Takako Sakuma

Translator’s Notes: The only thing to discuss here is the “ugly beautiful
world”. The Japanese minikukumo utsukushii has a slight connotation of
“beautiful world full of ugliness”.

Romaji

OH BABY tooriame ga agattara
hanauta demo utatte arukou
kono minikuku mo utsukushii sekai de

muda na koto nado kitto nani hitotsu shitenai sa
kimi no mi no uebanashi no hitotsu demo kikasete yo

OH BABY tooriame ga agaru made
kapuchi-no demo nande matou ka?
kono minikuku mo utsukushii sekai de
