Ondo Shanty

Arrangement: Ryouta Nozaki (Jazztronik)

Yaa-ree-no, it's tough for boatmen at Ondo no Seto, yoo
One jou, five shaku, yaareno. The oar yields yoo

Yaa-ree-no, when we go 'round Aki, Miyajima, seven ri will remain, yoo
There are seven inlets, yaareno. Seven shrines, yoo

Yaa-ree-no, this is Ondo no Seto. Whirling waves, yoo
Slam hard into the rock of, yaareno, Kiyomoridzuka, yoo

* Yaareeno and yoo - are just calls, so they have no real meaning
* Ondo no Seto is a strait close to Kure, Hiroshima
* One jou is the equivalent of 3.03 meters
* One shaku is the equivalent of 30.3 centimeters
* Aki is the former name of Hiroshima prefecture
* Miyajima
* One ri is the equivalent of 3.927 kilometers
* Kiyomoridzuka is a pagoda

Ondo no Funauta

Henkyoku: Nozaki Ryouta (Jazztronik)

YAAREENO sendou kawaii ya Ondo no Seto de YOO
Ichijou goshaku YAARENO ro ga shiwaru YOO

YAAREENO aki no Miyajima mawareba shichiri YOO
Ura wa Nanaura YAARENO nana Ebisu YOO

YAAREENO koko wa Ondo no Seto Kiyomoridzuka no YOO
Iwa ni Uzushio DON to YAARENO buchiataru YOO

音戸の舟唄

編曲:野崎良太(Jazztronik)

ヤーレーノ 船頭可愛いや 音戸の瀬戸でヨー
一丈五尺の ヤーレノ 艪がしわるヨー

ヤーレーノ 安芸の宮島 廻れば七里ヨー
浦は七浦 ヤーレノ 七恵比寿ヨー

ヤーレーノ ここは音戸の瀬戸 清盛塚のヨー
岩に渦潮 ドンと ヤーレノ ぶち当たるヨー
