A comment came to my "竹生島" YouTube video that, “Does anyone have the lyrics for this in romaji?”.
So I tried to write in romaji, and translated it to English.
Koro wa Yayoi no nakaba nareba, nami mo urara ni umi no omo, kasumi watareru asaborake, shizuka ni kayou fune no michi, geni omoshiroki toki tokaya.
( It was about the middle of March. Waves were calm on the surface of Biwako lake. It was hazy in the morning, and the boat quitely advanced along the lake. It was a very beautiful landscape! )
“Ikani arenaru fune ni binsen mousounou. “
“Oh mesare sourae.”
(Officer said “Could you board the boat?”
Old sailor “Suer!”)
Ureshiya satewa mukai no fune, nori no chikara to oboe tari. Kyo wa kotosara nodoka nite, kokoro ni kakaru kaze mo nashi.
( Officer “I was lucky enough to get on the pick-up boat! This is the blessing by the Buddha! The weather is espechally good today, and there is no cloud in my heart! “)
Yama yama no haru nareya, hana wa sanagara shirayuki no, furuka nokoruka toki shiranu, mine wa miyako no Fuji nareya, nao saekaeru haru no hi ni, Hira no neoroshi fuku totemo, oki kogu fune wa yomo tukiji. Tabi no narai no omowazu mo, kumoi no yosoni mishi hito mo, onaji fune ni nare goromo, ura o hedatete yuku hodo ni, Chikubu-Shima nizo tsukini keru.
( Officer “A lot of cherry blossoms bloom in the mountains, it’s spring now! It’s like snow,falling or remaining unmelted. Because of that, I don’t notice the season, and mountains looks like Mt. Fuji, to me. Strong spring wind comes from Mt. Hira, but many boats still floats in the lake. It is often on travel that, I made friends living in Kyoto on the same ship. Departing the bay, going offshore and finally, I arrived on Chikubu-Shima island!” )
Uketamawari oyobitaru yorimo iya masarite arigatashi, fushigi yana kono shima wa, nyonin kinzei to uketamawarite arishi ga, are naru nyonin wa nani tote mairare sourouzo.
( Officer “More religious than I have heard before! I heard that the island is forbidden for women, but there is women here! It’s strange!!” )
Sore wa shiranu hito no mousu koto nari, katajike nakumo kono shima wa, Kyusyou Nyorai no gosaitan nareba, makoto ni nyonin koso mairu bekere.
( Old sailor “That’s what someone who doesn’t know in detail says. Graciously, this island is a reincarnetion of Kyusho Nyorai, so women should especially visit.” )
Nou soremade mo naki mono o, Benzaiten wa nyotai nite, sono shintoku mo arata nari, tennyo to genji owashimaseba, nyonin totemo hedate nashi, tada shiranu hito no kotoba nari.
( Old sailor “Needless to say, Benzaiten is a female body, and the virtues are wonderful! She appears as a celestial maiden, and women can be saved without discrimination.” )
Geni kahodo utagai mo, araisojima no matsukage o, tayori ni yosuru amaobune,
( There is no doubt. Female diver ships come to rocky coast, using the pine as a landmark.)
Ware wa ningen ni arazu tote, shadan no tobira o oshi hiraki, goten ni irase tamai kereba, okina mo suicyu ni iruka to mieshiga, shiranami no tachi kaeri, warewa kono umi no aruji zo to iisutete, matamo namima ni iri tamou.
( Female diver said “I’m not human.” and opened the door of the temple, and walked into there. Old sailor went into the water, and the wave covered him. He said “I’m the lord of this lake.”, and went into the waves again. )
Fushigi ya koku ni ongaku kikoe, hana furi kudaru haru no yo no, …
( It was wonderful that the music echoed in the empty sky, and cherry blossom petals scatterd on a spring night…)
…tsuki ni kagayaku otome no tamoto, kaesu gaesu mo omoshiro ya.
(…and Benzaiten danced in the moonlight. It’s incredibly beautiful!)
Yayu no bugaku mo yaya toki sugite, tsuki sumi wataru umi zura ni
( The ball was over, and moonlight shined on the lake.)
…namikaze shikirini meido shite, gekai no ryujin araware ide, hikari mo kagayaku kin gin syugyoku o, kano marebito ni sasaguru keshiki, arigatakarikeru kidoku kana.
( The wind creates waves, and the dragon god appeared from the lower world! He gave a brilliant gold and silver treasure to the officer! Oh my goodness!! )
