  Romanji Lyrics

  English Translation

ねんねんころりよ、おころりよ

坊やはよい子だ、ねんねしな

坊やのお守は、どこへ行った
あの山越えて、里へ行った

里の土産に、何もろた
でんでん太鼓に、笙(しょう)の笛


 

nen nen cororiyo, ocororiyo

boya wa yoiko da, nen ne shina

boya no omori wa, doko e itta
ano yama koete, sato e itta

sato no miyage ni nani morota
den den daikon ni, sho no fue

 

 

go to sleep, go to sleep

you are a good boy, go to sleep

where did your nanny go
she crossed over a mountain and went to her village

what souvenir did you get from her village

a small drum and a flute
