K-ON! – Prologue

【Lyrics Translation】 Manabe Nodoka (CV: Fujitou Chika), K-ON! character image song series: Nodoka Manabe

Prologue
Lyrics: Oomori Shouko
Composition / Arrangement: Maezawa Hiroyuki
Vocals: Manabe Nodoka (CV: Fujitou Chika)

Wind, blowing past the nape of my neck, growing colder second by second.
The sound of dragonfly wingbeats; the scent of olive trees.

During these sunset times, I’d like to pine for somebody –
Or so I joke; you see, the clarity of the sky makes me honest.

K-ON!! – Hidamari Living

【Lyrics Translation】 Manabe Nodoka (CV: Fujitou Chika), K-ON!! Character Image Songs: Nodoka Manabe

Sunny Living
Lyrics: Oomori Shouko
Composition / Arrangement: Maezawa Hiroyuki
Vocals: Manabe Nodoka (CV: Fujitou Chika)

Rays of spring sunshine, thawing the needle ice.
The horsetail shoots are getting ready to appear, I’m sure.
Hey, line up the many seasons.
They’ve come to welcome us, here, in this way.

Pulling ahead, falling back, they grew long like they were in a race.
If only in height, they’re almost like people grown up.

Since the day I was born, we’ve gotten along well, Yeah Yeah

Your bed hair is sticking up!
I wonder why – you’re so cute I can’t leave you alone

K-ON!! – Genius…!?

Houkago Teatime, c/w K-ON!! OP1 GO! GO! MANIAC

Genius…!?
Lyrics: Oomori Shouko
Composition / Arrangement: Komori Shigeo
Performance: Houkago Teatime
[Hirasawa Yui, Akiyama Mio, Tainaka Ritsu, Kotobuki Tsumugi, Nakano Azusa]
(CV: Toyosaki Aki, Hikasa Yoko, Satou Satomi, Kotobuki Minako, Taketatsu Ayana)

I fasten my tie tightly, and now I head out,
With my heart tied tightly, too.
On the stage just for us to show our charm,
Let’s gather up our power.
No matter how many times we’re here, it feels like the first.
At the first song, of course, my heart is racing nervously,
But once we exhange some glances,
It soon turns into happiness – it’s strange.

(It’s the 6th sense! Special MAGIC MUSIC!
It’s the 6th sense! Great MAGIC MUSIC!)

Let’s all take our feelings and hum them to ourselves.
Whether you’re shy or you want to stand out, come freely and at ease.
I want me to tell me about your REAL.

Let’s paint out our wishes and dreams in music.
Even if they’re just “what-if” dreams, like trying to catch clouds in your hands,
I want to challenge our REAL!

After school is Tea Time, our full-power Break Time.
Let’s let it ring out – the one and only unending song in the world.

Not even the chime can put an end to our hopes, our continuing plans and promises.
So much that we put out an album, the “fun” overflows.

With a “One, two!!” we go, flying by on the melody
That we all made together.
