Sacchouiro Lyrics + Translation

Another song translation! This one, hmm. Hmm. It's a very romantic song? But at the same time, the words aren't really romantic at all |D But maybe kinda???? Mixed feelings.



Saigo Takanori (Yamaguchi Kenki), Katsura Kogorou (Maeyama Takahisa), Sakamoto Ryouma (Arai Atsushi)

Romaji:

Choushuu na kimi wa buki o choutatsu dekizu ni
Fukurettsura de suneteiru kedo

Toubaku nante tondemonai tte
Tsuyogatteta ano hi

Satsuma na kimi wa yakusoku no jikan ga kita no ni
Kyuuyou ga dekita to dotakyan shita yo ne

Owabi to iccha nan dakedo
Kimi ni misetai juu ga arun da

Kimi bakari semeru aitsu ga yurusenakute
Jibun no kimochi ni itsuwari wa nai no ni

Dareka ni senaka osarenai to
Sono me miru koto mo dekinai yo


[KenMae]Bunmei kaika no oto wa mada naranai kedo
Kimi to kaidan no seki ni tsukou
“da ze yo” no hito ni okorareru kara
Sacchou ga ano sacchou ga
Te o tsunaideru

Sonoujoui to ka koubugattai to ka
Komuzukashii kotoba narabete mite mo

Bokutachi futari itsu no ma ni ka
Onaji kimochi da to kizuitanda


[KenMae]Hachi gatsu juuhachi nichi no kinenbi ni wa
Machi o tobidasu kimi no senaka
Tsurai kedo omoidashichau kara
Sacchou wa bokura sacchou wa utsuiteru

Jikan to basho sae kimareba
Banji umaku iku to omotteita keredo
Hanashi ga susumanai nara
Washi ga shiri o tataki ni ikuze yo


Bunmei kaika no oto wa mada naranai kedo
Kimi to kaidan no seki ni tsukou
“da ze yo” no hito ni okorareru kara
Sacchou ga ano sacchou ga te o tsunaideru

Sacchou ga ano sacchou ga hora waratteru

Kanji:

長州な君は武器を調達できずに
ふくれっ面でスネているけど
倒幕なんてとんでもないって
強がってたあの日

薩摩な君は約束の時間が来たのに
急用ができたとドタキャンしたよね
お詫びと言っちゃなんだけど
君に見せたい銃があるんだ

君ばかり責める 幕府(あいつ)が許せなくて
自分の気持ちに 偽りはないのに
誰かに背中 押されないと
その目見ることもできないよ

文明開化の音はまだ鳴らないけど
君と会談の席に着こう
「だぜよ」の人に怒られるから
薩長が あの薩長が
手をつないでる

尊王攘夷とか公武合体とか
小難しい言葉並べてみても
僕たち二人いつの間にか
同じ気持ちだと気づいたんだ

8月18日の記念日には
町を飛び出す君の背中
辛いけど思い出しちゃうから
薩長は 僕ら薩長は 俯いてる

時間と場所さえ決まれば
万事うまくいくと思っていたけれど
話が進まないなら
わしが尻を叩きにいくぜよ

文明開化の音はまだ鳴らないけど
君と会談の席に着こう
「だぜよ」の人に怒られるから
薩長が あの薩長が 手をつないでる

薩長が あの薩長が ほら笑ってる

Translation: Satsuma-Choushuu Love

You from Choushuu couldn’t provide any weapons
But you were pouting with a sulky look
On that day I was just acting tough
Saying that the overthrow of the shogunate was impossible

Even though the time we agreed on had come, you from Satsuma
Suddenly canceled saying you had urgent business, right?
Of course I’ll apologize to you, but
I have some guns I’d like you to see

I can’t forgive the shogunate that only punishes you
Even though there’s no lie in how I feel
If nobody was pushing me from behind
I wouldn’t be able to see anything

The sounds of Westernization haven’t yet begun to ring,
But I’m going to sit down and have a conference with you
That “da ze yo” guy will get mad at us, so
Satsuma and Choushuu, yes, Satsuma and Choushuu
Will join hands

Even if we try discussing a list of words that are a little difficult
Like “Revering the emperor and expelling foreigners” or “marrying the shogunate to the Imperial family”
Before we knew it, we realized
That the two of us share the same feelings

On the anniversary of August 18th,
When you suddenly rushed out of town
It’s tough, but I’ll remember, so
Satsuma and Choushuu, yes, Satsuma and Choushuu are hanging their heads in shame

If we just decided on a place and time
I thought everything would go well, but
If you don’t make progress in your negotiations
I’ll smack your butts to get you moving ze yo

The sounds of Westernization haven’t yet begun to ring,
But I’m going to sit down and have a conference with you
That “da ze yo” guy will get mad at us, so
Satsuma and Choushuu, yes, Satsuma and Choushuu will join hands

Look, Satsuma and Choushuu, yes, Satsuma and Choushuu, are smiling.

Historical Notes:

Satsuma and Choushuu historically did NOT get along at all, but eventually their leaders managed to get it together with the help of Sakamoto Ryouma, who acted as a neutral third-party intermediary. He probably didn't actually literally smack anybody's butt, but who knows.

Choushuu didn't have many modern guns and that sort of thing, which left it unable to fight against the shogunate, so Satsuma, which was a rich domain with many ties to foreign merchants, helped provide them with guns. This really helped them win the Boshin War, which was primarily fought by these two against the shogunate.

Satsuma used to be allied very strongly with Aizu and the shogunate, and favored the "marrying the shogunate to the imperial family" approach along with Aizu, whereas Choushuu disapproved of the direction the leadership was taking and favored the "revere the emperor, expel the barbarians" position. On 8/18/1863, these two factions clashed and the Choushuu supporters were driven from Kyoto.

...and apparently Sakamoto Ryouma's catchphrase was "ze yo." Who knew? (Not me)

This Wiki article helped me a lot with this one :O
