広いさとうきび畑は

風が通りぬけるだけ
今日も見渡すかぎりに
みどりの波がうねる
夏の陽ざしのなかで

Sugar Millet Field(Full version)
(Translated by Sadao Mazuka)

sugar2 Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
Today, all around this field
The green waves swing to and fro
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
In an old day, from over the ocean
The war had come in this field
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
On that day, iron shower fell down
And my father died in this field
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
And the war was over on the day
That I was born here so mild
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
In the sound of wind blowing
I heard my mother singing a lullaby
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
I dreamed, I was embraced by someone
that seemed as my dead father
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
I wandered on the path of this field
Looking for my father’s voice
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
I wanted to call my father
My dear father, where are you now?
But I almost drown in the waves
Of this green millet field
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
In the wide sugar millet field
Rustling, rustling, rustling
Only the wind is passing by
Today, all around of this field
The green waves swing to and fro
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
Unforgettable sorrow is coming
Rustling, rustling, rustling
It comes like angry waves
Oh wind, bring back my lament song
To the ocean, that wide and deep
In the sunshine of hot summer

Rustling, rustling, rustling
Though my tears will dry soon
Rustling, rustling, rustling
My sorrow does not disappear (2008.9.21)
