Ryu ga Gotoku: Ashura Komachi (Shout)

阿修羅小町

(イヤー 阿修羅小町
響け この歌
五 四 三 二 一 ジーロ
阿修羅小町)

阿修羅のように雄々しき
(行くぞ!) (でかい)
愛し人 あんた
(俺の名は阿修羅)
お上のために(ジパング) お国のために(黄金の国)
真紅の川に沈む
(俺の好きな川は鬼怒川)

閻魔様の目盗み
地獄送りの(Go to the Hell!) お便りください
(あれは阿修羅 阿修羅 阿修羅!)

今宵 泣いて流れて(阿修羅) 泣いて溢れて(阿修羅)
ふたり隔てる 黄泉の鴨川
(俺の好きな川は鬼怒川!)
わずか一筋(阿修羅) 蜘蛛の糸さえ(芥川)
垂らせぬ愚かな(おい!) 阿修羅小町
(行くぞ!)

(地獄には風呂がなくて
汗だくで日々辛くて
焦がれるは現世の楽園
俺の鬼怒川)

Ashura Komachi

(iyaa ashura komachi
hibike kono uta
go yon san ni ichi zero
ashura komachi)

ashura no you ni ooshiki
(iku zo!) (dekai)
itoshi hito anta
(ore no na wa ashura)
okami no tame ni (zipang) okuni no tame ni (ougon no kuni)
shinku no kawa ni shizumu
(ore no suki na kawa wa kinugawa)

enma-sama no me nusumi
jigoku okuri no (go to the hell!) otayori kudasai
(are wa ashura ashura ashura!)

koyoi naite nagarete (ashura) naite afurete (ashura)
futari hedateru yomi no kamogawa
(ore no suki na kawa wa kinugawa!)
wazuka hitosuji (ashura) kumo no ito sae (akutagawa)
tarasenu orokana (oi!) ashura komachi
(iku zo!)

(jigoku ni wa furo go nakute
ase daku de hibi tsurakute
kogareru wa gensei no rakuen
ore no kinugawa)

Asura's Beauty

(iyaa Asura's beauty
let this song echo out
five, four, three, two, one, zero
Asura's beauty)

as heroic as Asura
(let's go!) (so big)
my dear beloved
(my name is Asura)
sinking into a river of crimson
(Kinugawa is the river for me)
for your emperor (Zipang) and country (the golden country)

please go behind Enma's back
and send me news (go to the Hell!)
of your passage to Hell
(it's Asura, Asura, Asura!)

tonight I'll cry out my tears (Asura), cry a river (Asura)
the two of us separated by hell's Kamo River
(Kinugawa is the river for me!)
unable to even dangle you down (Asura) a single spider's thread (Akutagawa)
this foolish beauty (hey!) of Asura's
(let's go!)

(there are no baths in hell
you're bathed in sweat and the days are hard
I yearn for the paradise of the world of the living
my Kinugawa)
