Okaasan te Nan Darou?

Okaasan te Nan Darou? (お母さんてなんだろう?) I Wonder What a “Mother” Is? is a song performed by Chibiusa, Mick, Hook, Cook and King Endymion in “Kaguya Shima Densetsu”, and its revised edition, when Chibiusa attempts to turn the kittens against their Mothers. In the Marinamoon version, Mamoru replaces King Endymion and it is now about Chibiusa trying to comfort Mick and Hook. In the original version of this song, the first few lines are taken from “Chibiusa no Hanran”.

Japanese

今度という今度は マジギレアタマきた
叱ってばかりのお母さん
大きらい
あそぼう思いきり ひとりでも
困らない

叱られるってどういうことかな
叱られてみたいな

おぼえてるのはあの日のことだけ
お空へ消えてったお母さん 泣いてた
こぼれてちぎれた涙のつぶが
宝石になって残ったんだよ

いつか必ず迎えにきてくれる
信じて待ってるのお母さん 逢いたい
お顔もおぼえていないけど いつも
宝石見てると 恋しくなるの

お母さん恋しいって? 逢いたいって?
『それって叱られたことないからだよ』
でも お母さんて そんなにいいものかな

いけないことを子供がしたとき
叱ってくれるのがお母さん
『そうだろ?』
いつでも子供の幸せ願って
愛してくれてる それがお母さん

Romaji

I mean it this time, this time I’ve really snapped
Shikatte bakari no okaasan
Daikirai
Asobou omoikiri hitori demo
Komaranai

Shikararerutte dou iu koto kana
Shikararete mitai na

Oboeteru no wa ano hi no koto dake
Osora e kietetta okaasan naiteta
Koborete chigireta namida no tsubu ga
Houseki ni natte nokottanda yo

Itsuka kanarazu mukae ni kitekureru
Shinjite matteru no okaasan aitai
Okao mo oboeteinai kedo itsumo
Houseki miteru to koishiku naru no

Okaasan koishiitte? aitaitte?
“Sorette shikarareta koto nai kara da yo”
Demo okaasan te sonna ni ii mo no kana

Ikenai koto wo kodomo ga shita toki
Shikatte kureru no ga okaasan
“Sou daro?”
Itsudemo kodomo no shiawase negatte
Aishite kureteru sore ga okaasan

English

This time, I’ll say it, this time I’ve really snapped
A mother that does nothing but scold
I really hate that!
I’ll play to my heart’s content, even if I’m all alone
I’ll have no worries!

I wonder what it means to be “scolded”?
I’d like to be scolded

The only thing we remember about that day…
Our mothers weeping as they disappeared into the sky
They overflowed… They fell into pieces… Their teardrops…
They turned into jewels and were left behind

Someday they will definitely come for us
We want to meet our mothers who we’ve been believing in and waiting for
We don’t remember their faces, but always
We look at our jewels and long for them

You long for your Mother? To meet them?
That’s because you’ve never been scolded!”
“But a “Mother” I wonder if it’s such a good thing?

When a child does something they shouldn’t
A Mother must scold them for that
“Isn’t that how it is?”
Always wishing for the happiness of her children
Loving them… That is a Mother

Japanese

おぼえてるのはあの日のことだけ
お空へ消えてったお母さん 泣いてた
こぼれてちぎれた涙のつぶが
宝石になって残ったんだよ

いつか必ず迎えにきてくれる
信じて
待ってるのお母さん 逢いたい
お顔もおぼえていないけど いつも
お空をみてると 恋しくなるの

お母さん恋しいって? 逢いたいって?
『お母さんどこにいったの?』
でも お母さんは ぜったいみつかるはず

悲しい思い子供がしたとき
心で泣いているお母さん
『そうだよ。』
いつでも子供の幸せ願って
愛してくれてる それがお母さん

Romaji

Oboeteru no wa ano hi no koto dake
Osora e kietetta okaasan naiteta
Koborete chigireta namida no tsubu ga
Houseki ni natte nokottanda yo

Itsuka kanarazu mukae ni kite kureru
Shinjite
Matteru no okaasan aitai
Okao mo oboete inai kedo itsumo
Osora wo miteru to koishiku naru no

Okaasan koishiitte? aitaitte?
“Okaasan doko ni itta no?”
Demo okaasan wa zettai mitsukaru hazu

Kanashii omoi kodomo ga shita toki
Kokoro de naiteiru okaasan
“Sou dayo”
Itsudemo kodomo no shiawase negatte
Aishite kureteru sore ga okaasan

English

The only thing we remember is just that day
Our Mother wept, disappearing into the sky.
They overflowed… Her teardrops fell into pieces…
They remain now as jewels

Someday, she will certainly come to see us
We believe in it
So we’re waiting, we want to meet our Mother
We don’t remember her face, but always…
We look up at the sky and long for her

You long for your Mother? To meet her?
Where did your Mother go?
But, your Mother, she’ll find you without a doubt

When a child experiences sorrowful feelings
A Mother cries in her heart…
“That’s how it is”
Always wishing for the happiness of her children
Loving them… That is a Mother…
