Relic of the past here. I picked it up shortly after I started this blog, long before I was good enough to handle whimsical songs like this, so it sat on the back burner for a very, very long time, but it’s finally out.

Give Them Back! Knee Socks
Lyrics: Hata Aki
Composition / Arrangement: nishi-ken
Vocals: Izumi Konata (Hirano Aya), Hiiragi Kagami (Katou Emiri), Hiiragi Tsukasa (Fukuhara Kaori), Takara Miyuki (Endou Aya)

Whew, tired after gym class,
Drink some water and bam, bam, time to change!
It’s annoying to be all sweaty.

If it started raining, we wouldn’t
Have to run a marathon. Hah, hah! Next time,
I’ll say a little charm, just plain effort.

Wait up! Where could they be?
(What’s the mater? Some kind of trouble again?)
Really, I just can’t find them!
Where did they disappear to?
(Okay, okay, okay! Tell us what’s wrong!)

Give me back my knee socks!
Who’s wearing them?
They’re all alike,
But they’re a little different. (I don’t know!)
Look for the knee socks, check the toe length,
They have their own subtle shape.
Ours all look alike –
We’re all girls with girlish styles.

Huh, did they just up and run away?
That’s so weird. Oh well, pop on the slippers without them.
Step with my heel and it sticks.

But now that I think about it,
They were getting old. Oh well, guess I’ll buuy new ones.
Maybe it’s a sign from the gods.

Oh boy, there goes the rest of my money.
(Work, work! It’s almost payday!)
Fine, then! I’ll be patient.
There’s some manga I want to buy, too.
(Wait up, wait up, wait up! On the way back, ice cream, slurp!)

Goodbye, my 2D knee socks.
I’ll take good care of the next ones, too.
After all, my moé for them was so strong
That color and length mattered to me. (Is that what it is?)
That pair really was one of my favorites,
The way they hugged my ankles just right,
But I can find more of the same,
With the same color and length.

(Hold it, hold on, hold up a minute! Hey, hey!
Don’t you know?
This way, that way, caffè latte! Gulp, gulp!
Item lost.
(It’s gone, it’s gone, it’s gone! It’s sad when it’s gone!)

Still, on second thought, give me back my knee socks!
Who’s wearing them?
They’re all alike,
But they’re a little different. (I don’t know!)
Look for the knee socks, check the toe length,
They have their own subtle shape.
Ours all look alike,
But these kneesocks only belong to me!

Kaeshite! Niisokkusu
Lyrics: Hata Aki
Composition / Arrangement: nishi-ken

Daru~   taiiku no ato nante
Mizu nonde   pa pa kigaemashou
Ase kaite   mendou da na

Ame futtara marason mo
Shinakute sumu   ha ha tsugi no toki wa
Omajinai   chimi ni doryoku

Matta!   are wa doko ni aru?
(Naani naani   nanka mata toraburu)
Datte!   are ga mitsukaranai
Dokoka ni kiechattayo
(Hai yo hai yo hai yo!   doushita itte goraan?)

Watashi no niisokkusu   kaeshite yo ne
Dareka haichatta nda?
Minna niteru kedo
Chotto chigau kara ne (wakannai!)
Sagashite niisokkusu   yubi no nagasa
Bimyou na katachi nanda
Minna niteru yo de
Joshi wa joshi no barie

Toho~n   kekkyoku tabidatta
Fushigi da na   poi poi uwabaki dake
Kakato fumi   hikkaketeru

Demo kangaete miru to ne
Furukatta   che che kaigaero to
Kamisama no otsuge kamo ne

Yadda-!   nokori no okodzukai
(Baito baito   mou sugu kyuuryou)
Haffu-!   gaman shite okou
Manga mo kaitaishi ne
(Otto otto otto!   kaeri aisupero-ri!)

Nijigen niisokkusu   sayonara desu
Tsugi mo daiji ni suru yo
Iro ya nagasa made
Kodawatteta moedashi (sonna mon?)
Kuikomu kanji   choudo yokute
Oki ni iri datta kedo
Iro mo nagasa mo ne
Onaji mono ga aru sa

Matta matte mattokette! oi oi
Anta shiranai no?
Datte ratte kaferatte! guigui
Aitemu shoushitsu
(Nai yo nai yo nai yo! nai to ochikonjau!)

Yappari niisokkusu   kaeshite yo ne
Dareka haichatta kamo?
Minna niteru kedo
Chotto chigau kara ne (wakannai!)
Sagashite niisokkusu   yubi no nagasa
Bimyou na katachi nanda
Minna niteru yo de
Watashi dake no niiso

かえして!ニーソックス
作詞:畑亜貴
作曲/編曲:nishi-ken
うた:泉こなた(平野 綾)、柊かがみ(加藤英美里)、柊つかさ(福原香織)、高良みゆき(遠藤 綾)

だる~ 体育の後なんて
水飲んで ぱっぱっ着替えましょう
汗かいて めんどーだな

雨降ったらマラソンも
しなくてすむ はっはっ次の時は
おまじない 地味に努力

待った! アレはどこにある?
(なぁになぁに なんかまたトラブル)
だって! アレが見つからない
どこかに消えちゃったよ
(はいよはいよはいよ! どした言ってごらーん?)

私のニーソックス 返してよね
誰かはいちゃったんだ?
みんな似てるけど
ちょっと違うからね(わかんない!)
探してニーソックス 指の長さ
微妙なカタチなんだ
みんな似てるよで
女子は女子のバリエ

とほ~ん 結局旅立った?
不思議だな ぽいぽい上履きだけ
かかと踏み ひっかけてる

でも考えてみるとね
古かった ちぇっちぇっ買い替えろと
神様のお告げかもね

やっだー! 残りのおこづかい
(バイトバイト もうすぐ給料)
はっふー! がまんしておこう
マンガも買いたいしね
(おっとおっとおっと! 帰りアイスぺろーり!)

二次元ニーソックス さよならです
つぎもだいじにするよ
色や長さまで
こだわってた萌えだし(そんなもん?)
くい込む感じ ちょうど良くて
お気に入りだったけど
色も長さもね
同じモノがあるさ

待った待って待っとけって! オイオイ
あんた知らないの?
だってらってカフェラッテ! グイグイ
アイテム消失
(ないよないよないよ! ないと落ちこんじゃう!)

やっぱりニーソックス 返してよね
誰かはいちゃったかも?
みんな似てるけど
ちょっと違うからね(わかんない!)
探してニーソックス 指の長さ
微妙なカタチなんだ
みんな似てるよで
私だけのニーソ
