Lyrics

Short version

Japanese Kanji Japanese Rōmaji English Translation
宵闇の お祭り広場
光り出す 提灯の中
聞こえくる 太鼓の音に
あふれだす思い ハートビートさ
Yoiyami no omatsuri hiroba
Hikari dasu chōchin no naka
Kikoe kuru taiko no oto ni
Afure dasu omoi hātobīto sa
In the festival square at night
A light comes from a hanging lantern
A taiko's sound can be heard
Thoughts flow out like a heartbeat
お面をつけた 小僧たち
和田イヌも 太鼓の前に集まって
楽しげに リズムに合わせ踊り出す
O men wo tsuketa kozō-tachi
Wada inu mo taiko no mae ni atsumatte
Tanoshi-ge ni rizumu ni awase odori dasu
The youngsters come out to play, wearing masks
Gather around the Taiko together with Wada Inu
Dancing in time to a fun rhythm
Dancing Do DonDon!! Dancing Do DonDon!!
煌くよ! 虹色 夢色 太鼓色 カッカ
花火がドンとなりゃ 夜空はドンダフル
Dancing Do DonDon!! Dancing Do DonDon!!
Kirame ku yo! Niji-iro yume-iro taiko-iro kakka
Hanabi ga don to narya yozora wa dondafuru
Dancing Do DonDon!! Dancing Do DonDon!!
Shine bright! The color of the rainbow, dreams and the taiko
The fireworks explode, the night sky is donderful
迷わずに叩き続けよう 力の限り
これぞ 太鼓の達人
Mayowazu ni hataki tsuzukeyou chikara no kagiri
Korezo taiko no tatsujin
When you are lost, keep on hitting the taiko with all your energy
That is a taiko drum master
