I’d translate the album title as something like “Skull Alice” or “Death’s Head Alice.”

The song itself borrows heavily from the Japanese children’s song of the same name.


誰さんと離れて 花一匁
誰さんとものめて花一匁
勝ってうれしい花いちもんめ
負けて悔しい花いちもんめ
隣のおばさん
ちょっと来ておくれ
鬼が怖くて行かれない
あかずのよってきちっとお出で
闇が怖くて行かれない

dare-san to hanarete hana ichi monme
dare-san to mo nomete hana ichi monme
katte ureshii hana ichi monme
makete kuyashii hana ichi monme
tonari no obasan
chotto kite okure
oni ga kowakute ikarenai
akazu no yotte kichitto ode de
yami ga kowakute ikarenai

I part from someone. Hana ichi monme.
I drink with someone, too. Hana ichi monme.
I’m so happy I won, hana ichi monme.
I’m so sad I lost, hana ichi monme.
O old lady next to me,
come here for a moment.
I’m scared of the demons, so I can’t go.
It’s forbidden, so come with care.
I’m scared of the dark, so I can’t go.

あの子が欲しい
あの子じゃわからん
この子が欲しい
この子じゃわからん
相談しよう そうしよう

ano ko ga hoshii
ano ko ja wakaran
kono ko ga hoshii
kono ko ja wakaran
soudan shiyou sou shiyou

I want that kid.
I don’t know about that one.
I want this.
I don’t know about that one.
Let’s talk about it! Okay, let’s!
