いつの日か この場所で君につたえるリズム 永遠(とわ)に響かせ itsu no hi ka kono bassho de kimi ni tsutaeru rizumu towa ni hibikase On this day, in this place, the rhythm you convey
Will echo forever
ドンカツ ドンカツドンカツ ドンカツ ドンカツドンカツ

僕らは 夢を求めてたたく 思いを込め 届けどこまでも
想いはやがて勇気にかわる 信じるのさ ビート刻むハート
bokura wa yomu wo motome tetataku
omoi wo kome todoke dokomademo
omoiwa yagate yuuki ni kawaru
shinjiru no sa bi-to kizamu ha-to
To achieve my dream, I beat
Collect my thoughts, and I can go anywhere
My thoughts, will soon turn to courage
Beats of confidence engraved in my heart
眠れない昨日も(きっと)叶わない願いも いつかは 晴れるから
ココロのバチで 闇をさけ
nemuranai kinou mo (kitto) kanawanai negai mo itsuka wa hareru kara
kokoro no bachi de yami wo sake
The sleepless yesterday (surely) and the unfulfilled wishes
Will always clear up from sunlight when the drum sticks of the heart drive away the darkness
DRUMROLLING! Drumrolling! DRUMROLLING!
燃えあがれ 立ち向かえ ココロの征くがままに
高らかに響き渡るのさ やがて世界へと
いつの日か この場所で 君に伝わるリズム
これぞ太鼓の達人 響きあえソウル

takara ka ni hibiki wataru no sa yagate sekai he to
itsu no hi ka kono bassho de kimi ni tsutawaru rizumu
korezo taiko no tatsujin hibiki ae soul
Burn, stand up and face forward, constantly with a warrior's heart
Making loud sounds and cross over, to the nearby world
On this day, in this place, the rhythm you convey
That is a taiko drum master, echoes in souls
それが太鼓の達人 sore ga taiko no tatsujin That is a taiko drum master
