1.Mo-ikutsu neruto Osho-gattsu
Osho-gatsu niwa tako agete
Koma o mawashite asobi masho
Hayaku koi koi Osho-gatsu
Few more sleeps to a new year
At the new year, Let’s fly a kite
Let’s spin a top, let’s play
Come quickly, come quickly, a new year!

At the new year, let’s bounce a ball
Let’s play battledore and shuttlecock
Come quickly, come quickly, a new year!

Now let’s sing!
