Romance and the Abacus

Lyrics & Composition: Ringo Shiina
Arrangement: Ringo Shiina & Youichi Murata

When profit is accomplished as a principle,
business has more meaning than the cost of one's food

While honoring both duty and rights,
I want to keep both ratios vague until the bitter end

Experts, amateurs, and everybody else, please give me the pros and cons
Fearing a challenge and taking the easy way is dumb
I want to refine new techniques every time
No matter how painful, I understand; just like me
you too live alone

Once you've factorized the universe, only freedom
and loneliness will be waiting

Experts and amateurs and laborers, I'm still an ordinary citizen
Let me stay humorous. I want to undertake
the troublesome roles every time, even if it's fruitless

Whenever I think of you, I'm excused
Binding together my dreams and reality
Surely once we embrace romance, we should use the abacus
and aim for the very middle of the two extremes, so please
give me courage...

If it's a suspicious opponent,
then I want to evolve forever. Let's check our answers
The more I know you, the more I'm corrected
That's pretty impressive; I'll just try living
Roman to Soroban

Shugi wo motte rieki wo nashita baai wa
Akinai ga kuibuchi ijou no imi wo yadosu

Gimu to kenri souhou omonji-tsutsu aku made
Ryousha wariai wa uyamuya ni shite itai

Kuroutoshuu toshiroshuu mina no shuu sanpiryouron choudai
Oki ni ikou nanzo yabo
Atarashii waza maido kuridashitai desu
Kurushikutomo boku niwa wakatte iru anata mo onaji you ni
Hitori ikite iru

Uchuu wo insuubunkai shita toko de jiyuu to
Kodoku dake ga matte iru'n deshou

Kurouto de toshiro de roudousha de seikatsusha no mama
Omoshirookashiku isasete wazurawashii yaku
Maido ukeoitai desu munashikutomo

Anata wo omou tabi boku wa yurusarete iku
Yume to utsutsu wo yuwaete
Kitto sou rouman kakaetara soroban hajiite
Ryoukyoku no domannaka nerai utte onegai
Yuuki wo okure...

Utagawashii aite nara itsudatte jibun
Zutto shinka shitai yo ne kotaeawase
Anata wo shiru hodo boku wa tadasarete iku
Suteta mono ja nai tada ikiyou to
浪漫と算盤

作詞・作曲:椎名林檎
編曲:椎名林檎、村田陽一

主義を以って利益を成した場合は
商いが食い扶持以上の意味を宿す

義務と権利双方重んじつつ飽く迄
両者割合は有耶無耶にしていたい

玄人衆素人衆皆の衆賛否両論頂戴
置きに行こうなんぞ野暮
新しい技毎度練り出したいです
苦しくとも僕には判っている貴方も同じ様に
ひとり生きている

宇宙を因数分解したとこで自由と
孤独だけが待っているんでしょう

玄人で素人で労働者で生活者の侭
面白可笑しく居させて煩わしい役
毎度請け負いたいです虚しくとも

貴方を思うたび僕は赦されていく
夢と現を結わえて
屹度そう浪漫抱えたら算盤弾いて
両極のど真ん中狙い撃ってお願い
勇気をおくれ・・

疑わしい相手ならいつだって自分
ずっと進化したいよね答え合わせ
貴方を知るほど僕は正されていく
捨てた物じゃないただ生きようと
