“Seiteki shoujo” by Number Girl



村の神社の境内で ヤったあの娘は街に出て
夏大学に入学決定 桃色、青に変わって 裸足の季節がはじまった

はじまって はじまって はじまって それからどーした?
あーじゃいこーじゃい なんじゃいこーじゃい

性的少女の見た夢は 真っ赤な烏(からす)を食らう夢
知らない誰かの吸いがらだけが 灰皿の上に山の様

山の様 山の様 山の様 それからどーした?
あーじゃいこーじゃい なんじゃいこーじゃい
歩いている 知り合いはいない
街ん中 誰も知らない
覚えているのは冷たい感触と 朝日が差しこむ部屋のあのカンジ

思い出す必要はないから すっかり忘れてしまった
どうせもいいから 思い出なんて
どうでもいいから 記憶なんて
忘れてしまうよ カンタンに
忘れてしまえば 楽勝よ

忘れてしまった 忘れてしまった

あの娘は今日も歩いていた 知らない誰かと歩いていた。

Sexual Girl

Lyrics: Mukai Shutoku
Translation: Alex Fyffe

She did it on the grounds of the village shrine and went to the city
for college in the summer. Everything turned pink and blue, and so began the barefoot season

Sexual girl has a dream in which she swallows a crimson crow
When she wakes in her room, no one is there
Only some stranger’s cigarette butts piled up in the ashtray like a mountain

She takes a walk and doesn’t recognize anybody
She doesn’t know anyone in the city

Recollection is a cold sensation, the feeling of sunrise piercing her room

She doesn’t want to remember, so she chooses to forget
She doesn’t need to remember, so she forgets it all

Everything is fine
Her thoughts, her memories
She can forget them easily enough
It’s an easy victory

She erases her memories, purges herself of them
She’s erased her memory, wiped it clean
She can forget, forget everything

She was walking again today, walking with some stranger


Trans. May of 2007.

はじまって はじまって はじまって それからどーした?
あーじゃいこーじゃい なんじゃいこーじゃい

I left these two lines out of my translation. The first line echoes the “hajimatta” of the first verse — “has begun, has begun, has begun, but what happened then?” The second line, from what I can tell, is mostly for sound: “aa jai koo jai nan jai koo jai,” and I’m not certain it really means anything (correct me if I am wrong).
