大利根無情 (Ootone mujou) (English translation)

大利根無情

利根の利根の川風 よしきりの
声が冷たく 身をせめる
これが浮世か
見てはいけない 西空見れば
江戸へ江戸へひと刷毛(はけ) あかね雲
 
「佐原囃子が聴えてくらあ、想い出すなア…、
御玉ヶ池の千葉道場か、うふ…。
平手造酒も、今じゃやくざの用心棒、
人生裏街道の枯落葉か。」
 
義理の義理の夜風に さらされて
月よお前も 泣きたかろ
こゝろみだれて
抜いたすすきを 奥歯で噛んだ
男男泪(なみだ)の 落し差し
 
「止めて下さるな、妙心殿。落ちぶれ果てても平手は
武士じゃ男の散りぎわは 知って居り申す、
行かねばならぬそこをどいて下され、
行かねばならぬのだ。」
 
瞼(まぶた)瞼ぬらして 大利根の
水に流した 夢いくつ
息をころして
地獄まいりの 冷酒のめば
鐘が鐘が鳴る鳴る 妙円寺

Heartlessness in the Tone river

The breeze of the Tone river is like a reed warbler
Its voice tortures the bodies cruelly
Is that this world?
If I look at the west sky that I shouldn't see
A painted red cloud goes to Edo
 
I hear the Sawara Bayashi festival, I remember
Chiba's dojo at the Otamagaike lake
Miki Hirate now is a Yakuza bodyguard
A withered leaf in the byroad of life
 
Exposed to the honorable night wind
Moon, you want to cry
My heart feels confused
I bit the pulled grass
And took my sword by the chest with tears
 
Don't stop me Nun Myoshin. Even if Hirate falls and dies,
He's a warrior who only knows his time to die
I must go there, go away
I must go there.
 
The Tone river wets my eyelids
How many dreams were washed away?
Holding my breath
When I drink cold sake visiting hell
The bells will ring in Myoenji
 
Thanks!
