[Translation] Nishino Kana – Have a nice day

5分おきに鳴る目覚まし
お願い寝かせてもう少し
まだ眠いしテレビも見たいしお腹すいた (Good morning!)
スマホを片手にコーヒー
気づけばヤバいもう8時
よっしゃ!駅まではダッシュするしかない

My alarm goes off every 5 minutes
Please just let me sleep a bit more
I’m still sleepy, I want to watch TV, and I am hungry (Good Morning!)
Smartphone in one hand while drink my coffee
When I realize the time it’s already 8am
Alrighty!  Looks like I’m gonna have to make a dash to the station.

愛とか恋とかラララララ
気になる彼は彼女がいた
ドンマイ ドンマイ
これも運命

Love and Romance, Lalalala
The guy I am interested in has a girlfriend.
Don’t mind, Don’t mind
This is also fate!

I say, がんばれ私! がんばれ今日も
「行ってきます」「行ってらっしゃい」
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
行け!行け!私! その調子、いい感じ!
がんばれ私! がんばれ今日も
「行ってきます」「行ってらっしゃい」
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
偉いぞ私 負けるな 焦るな くじけるな
そうやって今日だって
一生懸命生きてるから
I say, Have a nice day

I say,  do your best, me! Do your best today
“I’m heading out!” “Have a good day!”
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
Go! Go! Me! Just like that, good vibes!
Do your best, me! Do your best today
“I’m heading out!” “Have a good day!”
You’re doing great, me. Don’t loose, don’t get flustered, don’t get disheartened!
That’s right, today I’m living to the fullest.
I say, Have a nice day

たまにはパーっとしたいのに
まだまだやること山積み
もう眠いしまだ終わんないしお腹すいた (I’m hungry!)
みんな帰っちゃうお先に
気づけば夜も10時過ぎ
よっしゃ!こうなれば本気出すしかない

Sometimes I just want to take a break,
but the work just keeps piling up.
I’m tired, nothings finished, and I’m getting hungry (I’m hungry!)
Everyone’s already left before me,
and before I realized its already after 10pm
Alrighty! I’ve just gotta work harder on this.

夜中のスイーツラララララ
ダイエットはまた明日から
ドンマイ ドンマイ
これはご褒美

Midnight Sweets Lalalala
I’ll start my diet again tomorrow.
Don’t mind! Don’t mind!
This is my reward.

I say, がんばれ私! がんばれ今日も
「お疲れさん」「おやすみなさい」
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
週末まではあと2日 あと2日
がんばれ私! がんばれ今日も
「お疲れさん」「おやすみなさい」
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
凄いぞ私 優しく 可愛く イラつかず
そうやって今日だって
一生懸命生きてるから
I say, Have a nice day

I say,  do your best, me! Do your best today
“Good Work Today” “Goodnight!”
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
There are only 2 more days until the weekend, 2 more days!
Do your best, me! Do your best today
“Good Work Today” “Goodnight!”
That’s amazing!, me. You’re nice, sweet, and patient!
That’s right, today I’m living to the fullest.
I say, Have a nice day

Monday ブルーな溜め息の Tuesday
Wednesday 乗り切ったらやっと Thursday
華の Friday 夜更かしの Saturday
あっという間 眠りたくない Sunday
起きたら Monday

Monday with a blue sigh leads to Tuesday
Wednsday humpday, then its finally Thursday
Beautiful Friday, Late-night Saturday
Just like that I don’t want to go to sleep Sunday
When I wake up it’s Monday

I say, がんばれ私! がんばれ今日も
「行ってきます」「行ってらっしゃい」
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
行け!行け!私! その調子、いい感じ!
がんばれ私! がんばれ今日も
「行ってきます」「行ってらっしゃい」
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
偉いぞ私 負けるな 焦るな くじけるな
そうやって今日だって
一生懸命生きてるから
I say, Have a nice day

I say,  do your best, me! Do your best today
“I’m heading out!” “Have a good day!”
Happy Lucky Sunny Day
Go! Go! Me! Just like that, good vibes!
Do your best, me! Do your best today
“I’m heading out!” “Have a good day!”
You’re doing great, me. Don’t loose, don’t get flustered, don’t get disheartened!
That’s right, today I’m living to the fullest.
I say, Have a nice day


Translators Notes:

This was my translation of “Have a nice day” from her “Just LOVE” Album. Please note that Japanese is my second language and this translation is just my interpretation of the lyrics based on my knowledge of the Japanese and English language. If you have any suggestions to better it, please comment below! Also, I do not own the rights to these song lyrics.

I had such a fun time translating this really light and fun song! I love Nishino Kana’s lyrics and this song may seem childish, but if you look a bit deeper I see a song that is motivating and positive, telling you to work hard but don’t be too hard on yourself sometimes. Self-love I guess?
