No.1「Happy Japan」(合唱, 芸者たち)

男声合唱 Dawns the day in Eastern Sky,
女声合唱 Here we hasten, pitter patter,
Where the tiny tea-cups clatter.
男声合唱 Mounts the golden sun god high,
女声合唱 Shaded from his fury heated,
Still at tea you find us seated.
男声合唱 Passes day towards the West,
女声合唱 Comes the night and call to rest.
Then we leave with sigh and sorrow,
No more tea until to-morrow,
合唱 No more tea until to-morrow.
※合唱 Happy Japan,
Garden of glitter!
Flower and fan
Flutter and flitter,
Land of bamboo,
(Juvenile whacker)
Porcelain too,
Tea-tray and lacquer!
Happy Japan, Happy Japan!
芸者たち Shall we sing you while they bring you
Tea or coffee, sirs?
Dainty lyric – panegyric
Of the gentlemen?
We’ve a solo, touching polo
For the officers,
And a rondo, rather fond O!
Sentimental men!
Of a hymn in praise of women
Are you fanciers?
Or a sonnet to a bonnet
Supercilious?
We’ve a ditty of the City
For financiers,
And a ballad of a salad
For the bilious!
Merry little Geisha we,
Come along at once and see
Ample entertainment free
Given as you take your tea.
合唱 Charming little Geisha they,
Come along and hear them play;
All of it is free they say,
Nothing in the world to pay.
All of it is free they say,
Nothing in the world to pay.
Happy Japan,
Garden of glitter!
Flower and fan
Flutter and flitter,
Land of bamboo,
(Juvenile whacker)
Porcelain too,
Tea-tray and lacquer!
Happy Japan, Happy Japan, Happy Japan!
