Naniwa-bushi da yo, Jinsei wa

飲めと言われて 素直に飲んだ
肩を抱かれて その気になった
馬鹿な出逢いが 利口に化けて
よせばいいのに 一目惚れ
浪花節だよ  女の 女の 人生は
 
嘘は誰かが 教えてくれる
恋も誰かが 見つけてくれる
そんな誰かに 振り回されて
消えた女が また一人
浪花節だよ 女の 女の人生は
 
咲いて萎んで 捨てられました
逢って別れて 諦めました
人の情けに つかまりながら
折れた情けの 枝で死ぬ
浪花節だよ 女の 女の人生は

Life's Like an Old Song

You told me to drink, so I obediently drank
I just felt like drinking when you put your hand on my shoulder
I tried to impress you with my brains when we met by chance
Even though we were drunk it was love at first sight
But the way a woman lives is like an old song
 
Who taught me to lie so well?
And who found me a love like this?
Whoever she was, I got bossed around by her and then
She disappeared and left me all alone
The way a woman lives is like an old song
 
Our love bloomed, withered, and died
We met, we parted, we gave up
Others will care for me in this tough time
But I'll probably die before she ever cares again
The way a woman lives is like an old song
 
Happy to take requests for Japanese music in particular :)
