Lyrics

「ロンド…ですか。少々不慣れではありますが、私も日本男児、やる時はやりますよ!」

まわるまわる手を取り、まわる地球ロンド
つたない足取りですが一緒に踊りませんか?
桜がひらひら日本酒で乾杯
めぐるめぐる季節にこんにちは日本です

嗚呼戴きたい 細めの白滝の肉じゃがを
嗚呼天晴です 白米と味噌汁で
「これぞお袋の味です」

まわるまわる手を取り、輪になってロンド
花や鳥や風や月と歌いましょう
回しましょう地球 私たちのヘタリア

まわるまわる手を取り、まわる地球ロンド
花の都京都で一緒に踊りませんか?
花火がドンドン!好きですお祭り
めぐるめぐる季節にこんにちは日本です

嗚呼伺います お茶菓子ふるまい文化交流
嗚呼届けましょう 世界中の皆様に
「みたらしのお団子にお茶をいかがですか?」

まわるまわる手を取り、輪になってロンド
富士を超えて海も越えて歌いましょう
回しましょう地球 私たちのヘタリア

さあ参りましょう 武士の魂を懐に
新しき世界への門を叩きましょう

まわるまわる手を取り、まわる地球ロンド
落ちゆく白い雪と一緒に踊りましょう
幸せの魔法 あなたへのウ…ウイン…ク…
めぐるめぐる季節にこんにちは日本です

そーれ楽しいです きらびやかな世界へようこそおいで下さいました
さあ心からおもてなし致します
「ああ…皆さん桜のつぼみがつきましたよ」

まわるまわる手を取り、輪になってロンド
皆様と一緒に歌いましょう
回しましょう地球私たちのヘタリア

“A… rondo? I am not accustomed to those… however, I am also a Japanese man… I will do what I must!”

Spinning, spinning, hand-in-hand
It’s the spinning world rondo
Though I have an unskillful gait,
“May I have this dance?”

The cherry blossoms are fluttering,
While we toast with sake
In the ever changing seasons
“Hello, I am Japan.”

Ah, I wish to eat
The thin shirataki from nikujaga[1]
Ah, It’s splendid
With white rice and miso soup!

“This has a real nostalgic taste!”[2]

Spinning, spinning, hand-in-hand
Make a circle rondo
Let’s sing together with the beauties of nature[3]
Spin, world! It’s our
Hetalia!

Spinning, spinning, hand-in-hand
It’s the spinning world rondo
In the floral city of Kyoto,
“Will you dance with me?”

The fireworks go “bang bang!”
Oh how I love festivals
In these ever-changing seasons,
“Hello, I am Japan.”

Ah, I inquire
About teacakes, behavior, and cultural exchange
Ah, let’s deliver these
To everyone in the world

“How would you like to drink some tea after the curtain closes on this song?”[4]

Spinning, spinning, hand-in-hand
Make a circle rondo
Let’s cross over Fuji[5] and the sea and sing
Spin, world! It’s our
Hetalia!

Come, let’s go
With the soul of a warrior, close in on the enemy[6]
Let’s strike down the gate that leads to a new world!

Spinning, spinning, hand-in-hand
It’s the spinning world rondo
Together with the falling white snow,
“Let’s dance!”[7]

With the magic of happiness,
I’ll give you a “w… win… k….”
In these ever-changing seasons,
“Hello, I am Japan.”

Ahh, how fun
“Please allow me to welcome you” to this dazzling world
Ahh, let me show you
The heart of Japanese hospitality

“Ahh… everyone, the cherry blossoms have begun to bloom!”

Spinning, spinning, hand-in-hand
Make a circle rondo
Let’s sing together with everyone
Spin, world! It’s our
Hetalia!

  1. "Shirataki" = noodles that are often used in Nikujaga
  2. T/N: proofing needed (see source for explanation)
  3. Japan says “Hana ya tori ya kaze ya tsuki to utaimashou,” which would literally mean “let’s sing together with the flowers, the birds, the wind, and the moon"—however, these four kanji together make the Japanese saying ”Kachou Fuugetsu“ (lit. Flower, Bird, Wind, Moon) which means "Experience the beauties of nature, and in doing so learn about yourself” (source), so the line is translated to incorporate the saying that he was alluding to.
  4. T/N: proofing needed
  5. Mount Fuji
  6. T/N: I had to stare at this line for a bit and do a bit of research because I was pretty sure Japan wasn’t saying to go into the bosom of a samurai’s soul… XD;;; But “futokoro” is actually also a Kendo term which means “the space in front of the enemy” (source), so between that and the “bushi no tamashii” bit (“bushi” can mean “warrior” or “samurai,” btw, but I went with the former because “samurai” is a Japanese word on its own so replacing one Japanese word with another feels a bit awkward XD;), along with the next line, I figured that was the translation I should go with.
  7. T/N: I tried to convey it as best as I could, but in case it wasn’t clear, Japan gradually got less and less formal when asking to dance throughout the song until he’s practically outright taking your hand and tugging you out to dance in a sense
