Nanatsu no Ko

Nanatsu no Ko (七つの子, lit. Seven children, or Seven baby crows, The crow’s seven chicks)

Mother crow, why do you squawk so?
Because high on the mountain
I have seven cute children.

“Cute, cute,”
This mother crow sings.
“Cute, cute,”
Cries the mother crow.
You should behold the old nest
On the mountain. And there you’ll see such
Round-eyed, good children.

Karasu naze nakuno
Karasu wa yama ni
Kawai nanatsu no
Ko ga aru kara yo
Kawai kawai to
Karasu wa nakuno
Kawai kawai to
Nakundayo
Yama no fuurusu e
Itte mite goran
Marui me o shita
Iiko da yo

烏は啼くの
可愛 可愛と
啼くんだよ
山の古巣へ
行って見て御覧
丸い眼をした
いい子だよ

One’s lucky

One’s lucky,
Two’s unlucky,
Three is health,
Four is wealth,
Five is sickness
And six is death.

One crow sorrow

One crow sorrow,
Two crows joy,
Three crows a letter,
Four crows a boy.
