"Furusato"

Romanji -

Usagi oishi kanoyama

Kobuna tsu rishi kano kawa

Yume wa imamo megu rite

Wasure gataki furusato

Ikani imasu chichi haha

Tsutsuga nashiya tomogaki

Ame ni kaze ni tsuke temo

Omoii zuru furusato

Kokoro zashio hatashite

itsunohi nika kaera nn

Yama wa aoki furusato

Mizu wa kiyoki furusato

English -

Sometimes I dream I'm on the Hill
   Chasing the wild hare -  freely at will
   Catching small fish - as the Brook murmers by
   Place of my birthright - for you I sigh

Father and Mother - once you taught me
   That treasures of life - are all given free!
   Friendship and hapiness - Sunshine and Rain
   Your words come back to me time and again

Clear crystal brooklet - fresh Hills of Blue
   Whisper  across the Breeze - where are you?
   when fortune smiles on me - then Furusato
   I will return to you, I love you so!
