Pied Piper Parade

Vocals: 睦鬼 (Mutsuki)
Lyrics: 睦鬼 (Mutsuki)
Composed by: 小狐丸 (Kogitsunemaru)
Album: Child Ghost Hour [Official site]
Circle: Queen of Wand
Event: M3-2013

Requested by: Adelheid

This song is a retelling of the tale of the Pied Pier of Hamelin. From what I remember, a town hired the piper to lure an infestation of rats away. However, they didn’t pay him, so he used his flute to lure the town’s children away.


歌詞

始まるよ

Ring-a-Ring-a-Ring-o’ Roses
さぁ 手を取って
泣きたい気持ちなんて
どこか遠くへ消えちゃうよ

羊雲 空飛ぶ雲雀
楽しみな夏至祭り

花飾り 流行の病
ネズミたちは泳ぐ川の底

Ding-Dong Ding-Doun, Ring-a-Ding Dong
もう 帰らなきゃ
寂しがり屋のママが
泣き出してしまう前に

笛の音が聞こえてくるよ
丘の上風に紛れて
笛の音に誘われるように
心が自然に動き出すよ

歩いて歩いてどこまでも歩いて
光の差す方へ何故かいい気分
楽しいコトだけ歌いながら行こう
ボクらはひとつの音楽隊だ

笛の音が聞こえてくるよ
胸の奥掻き鳴らしてる
笛の音に煽られるように
心が自然に踊り出した

歩いて歩いて音楽に合わせて
光の差す方へとても良い気分
燃盛る赤い炎の中でさえ
世界の優しさを感じるだろう

果てない路行き笛の音に合わせて
どこまでも行ける丸い月を背に
氷の宝石青い水の森で
世界の秘密を見つけるだろう

誰もがひとつの音楽隊だ

Translation

“It’s starting…”

Ring a Ring a Ring o’ Roses!
Come, take my hand.
Those tearful feelings of yours
Will disappear somewhere far away…

A skylark flies high in a field of clouds, (1)
During that enjoyable Midsummer feast.

Flower decorations… The disease spreads…
The rats swim at the bottom of the river.

Ding-dong, ding-dong, ring-a-ding dong…
I have to hurry home,
Before my lonely mama
Bursts into tears.

Hey, the sound of a flute is coming this way!
From the top of the hill, it’s slipped into the wind…
As if being tempted by the sound of the flute,
My heart has spontaneously come alive!

Walk, walk. No matter how far, walk.
I feel good when I head towards that shining light, for some reason.
Let’s go, as we sing only of fun things!
All of us are a single band!

Hey, the sound of a flute is coming this way!
The inside of my chest is strumming…
As if being stirred up by the sound of the flute,
My heart has spontaneously broken into dance!

Walk, walk, in time with the music.
I have a really good feeling about heading towards that shining light.
I wonder if I’d even be able to feel the world’s kindness
Inside those raging red flames…

We walk upon the endless road, in time with the noise of the flute.
We can go anywhere, with the moon at our backs.
I wonder if we’ll be able to find the world’s secrets
Inside that forest of blue water and gems of ice…

Everyone’s a single band!
