Lyrics

Short version

Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
楽しいお祭り 一緒に遊んだ
思い出すまでは ぼくは叩き続ける

聞こえているのか この太鼓の音が
落ちていく君を もう離しはしないだろう

oh
Tanoshii omatsuri issho ni asonda
Omoi dasu made wa boku wa hataki tsuzukeru

Kikoete irunoka kono taiko no koe ga
Ochiteiku kimi o mou hanashi hashinaidarou

oh
Let's play together in the really fun festival
Until you remember, I'll continue to beat the drum

Can you hear it? The sound of this Taiko
You have fallen down, please don't leave me

oh
みんな力合わせ 届けるリズム
仲間の声とともに空に響く
私を呼ぶ声がかすかに聞こえる
暗闇を消し去って 光へ導け
Minna chikara awase todokeru rhythm
Nakama no koe totomo ni sora ni hibiku
Watashi o yobu koe ga kasuka ni kikoeru
Kurayami o keshi satte hikari e michibike
Everyone, gather your energy! Follow the rhythm!
The sound of our friendship reverberates in the sky
You can faintly hear my voice calling out
I'll erase the black darkness, I'll guide you to the light!
扉開けたこの先 そこにいるのは君なのか Tobira aketa kono saki soko ni iru no wa kiminanoka The door is opening...standing in front of it, is that you?

「ハカイ メイレイ ハカイ メイレイ」

「よーっし!ボクたちのドン魂で
元のアルミちゃんに戻すドーン!!」

Kikoete irunoka kono taiko no koe ga
Ochiteiku kimi o mou hanashi hashinaidarou

oh
'Arumi-chan, stop this! Don't you even know us?'

'Destroy. Command. Destroy. Command.'

'Right! Let's use the Don Spirit to return Arumi-chan back to her old self!'


Let's play together in the really fun festival
Until you remember, I'll continue to beat the drum

You have fallen down, please don't leave me

'Fun? Festival??'

'I hate fun! I hate festivals even more!!'

'Hate it hate it hate iiit!!'

The crying thunder calls out
The evil ones call out, dreams are split apart
I cannot reach, I cannot turn back
Struggling within the darkness of Hell
「アルミちゃん まだもとに戻らないドン・・・」

「ウ・・・ウウ・・・。

'Arumi-chan!? Do you remember now? Just bear this a little longer!!'
