This song’s interesting quirk is the different ways you can interpret わらう (warau) and わらえる (waraeru). As a general rule, warau can mean either ‘smile’ or ‘laugh’, and waraeru literally means “to be made to laugh” (e.g. laughing involuntarily because something’s hilarious).


わらえるよ えがおでわらえる

waraeru yo egao de waraeru

It’s hilarious! I’m laughing with a big smile.

にっこりわらえればだいじょうぶ

nikkori waraereba daijoubu

If I crack a smile, it’s all good.

わらえるからね わらえるからね
わらってわらって
わらってるでしょう ホラみてよ
このぼくのかお

waraeru kara ne waraeru kara ne
waratte waratte
waratteru deshou hora mite yo
kono boku no kao

It’s hilarious. It’s hilarious
so laugh, laugh!
I’m smiling. See? Look!
Look at my face.

わらえるからね わらえるからね
わらってわらって

It’s hilarious. It’s hilarious
so laugh, laugh!
I’m smiling. See? Look!
Look at my face.

わらえるよ えがおでわらえる

waraeru yo egao de waraeru

How hilarious. I’m laughing with a big smile on my face.

ペットがしんじゃってもだいじょうぶ

petto ga shinjattemo daijoubu

Even if my pet dies, it’s all good.

わらえるからね わらえるからね

It hurts, it hurts! My face is all blue.
It hurts, it hurts!
It hurts and I’m about to die. Hey…

My face hurts. My fingers are blue.
It hurts, it hurts!
I’m being strangled and it hurts. Hey…
Look at me.
