Ryu ga Gotoku: Samurai Ondo

Lyrics: Ryosuke Horii
Composition/arrangement: Chihiro Aoki

さむらい音頭

<剣をふりふり 男だね>
<腰をふりふり 祭りだね>
<さむらい音頭で踊りましょう>

ここは幕末・京の街
祇園伏見に物騒な骸(むくろ)
百姓も遊女も商人(あきんど)も
さむらい音頭で 踊りましょう

<さむらい音頭で踊りましょう>

刀 持たせりゃ無敵だぜ
さむらい様のお通りだい
大砲や鉄砲にゃ弱いけど
剣で放つぜ夢花火

あ~ おのれ貫く 男は侍
あ~ 愛を貫く 女も侍

斬ってみせます その野望
斬ってみせます あの野郎
おいらは侍 今日も誰ぞと
斬ったはった斬ったはった ヨーイヨイヨイヨイ
さむらい音頭

ええじゃないかい 今日くらい
無礼講だよ 朝までドンチャン
武者も忍者も大将軍も
さむらい音頭で踊りましょう

<さむらい音頭で踊りましょう>

斬れぬものなどありゃしねぇ
どんな輩もかかってこい
大砲や鉄砲は 卑怯だぜ
正々堂々 いざ勝負

あ~ 刀で砕け それこそ侍
あ~ 刀で守れ それこそ侍

斬ってみせます その無謀
斬ってみせます ばか野郎
おいらが侍 明日も誰ぞと
斬ったはった斬ったはった ヨーイヨイヨイヨイ
さむらい音頭

斬ってみせます その野望
斬ってみせます あの野郎
斬ってみせます その無謀
斬ってみせます ばか野郎

おいらは侍 今日も誰ぞと
斬ったはった斬ったはった ヨーイヨイヨイヨイ
さむらい音頭

<剣をふりふり 男だね>
<腰をふりふり 祭りだね>
<さむらい音頭で踊りましょう>
<最後は皆さまご一緒に>
<さむらい音頭で踊りましょう>

The Samurai March

(wave your sword around, you're a man)
(shake your hips around, it's a festival)
(let's dance to the samurai march)

this is the town of Kyo during the bakumatsu
an insecure corpse in Fushimi, Gion
farmers, prostitutes and merchants alike
dance to the samurai march

(let's dance to the samurai march)

with my sword in hand I'm invincible
watch out, Mister Samurai is coming through
I may be weak in the face of cannons and guns
but I'll set off dreamy fireworks with my blade

ah, have faith in yourself, men are samurai
ah, have faith in love, women are samurai, too

I'll slice up that ambition
I'll slice up that bastard
I am a samurai, and as usual I will
slice and slash, slice and slash you whoever you are, let's go
it's the samurai march

how about it, just for today
we put aside rank and party until the sun comes up
warriors, ninja and commanders-in-chief alike
dance to the samurai march

(let's dance to the samurai march)

there's no one I can't beat
come and try me if you dare
cannons and guns are sneaky
let's have a fair and square contest

ah, using your sword to destroy - that is a samurai
ah, using your sword to protect - that is a samurai

I'll slice up that mad plan
I'll slice up that stupid fool
I am a samurai, and as usual I will
slice and slash, slice and slash you whoever you are, let's go
it's the samurai march

I'll slice up that ambition
I'll slice up that bastard
I'll slice up that mad plan
I'll slice up that stupid fool

I am a samurai, and as usual I will
slice and slash, slice and slash you whoever you are, let's go
it's the samurai march

(wave your sword around, you're a man)
(shake your hips around, it's a festival)
(let's dance to the samurai march)
(finally, all together now)
(let's dance to the samurai march)
