Red Dragonfly

Lyrics: Rofuu Miki
Music: Kousaku Yamada
Arrangement: Ryouta Nozaki (Jazztronik)

Red dragonfly in the red sunset sky, in the orange sunset sky
Being carried on her back, I saw it at one time

In the mountain's fields, we picked mulberry fruits
And put them in a small basket, is that a mirage?

At fifteen, the young girl married
And letters too ceased to come

Red dragonfly in the red sunset sky, in the orange sunset sky
It's stopped on the tip of my fishing pole

Akatonbo

Sakushi: Miki Rofuu
Sakkyoku: Yamada Kousaku
Henkyoku: Nozaki Ryouta (Jazztronik)

Yuuyake koyake no akatonbo
Owarete mita nowa itsunohika

Yama no hatake no kuwa no mi wo
Kokago ni tsunda wa maboroshi ka

Juugo de neeya wa yome ni iki
Osato no tayori mo taehateta

Yuuyake koyake no akatonbo
Tomatte iru yo sao no saki

赤とんぼ

作詞:三木露風
作曲:山田耕筰
編曲:野崎良太(Jazztronik)

夕焼け小焼けの 赤とんぼ
負われて見たのは いつの日か

山の畑の 桑の実を
小かごに摘んだは まぼろしか

十五でねえやは 嫁に行き
お里の便りも 絶え果てた

夕焼け小焼けの 赤とんぼ
とまっているよ 竿の先
