Circle: 暁Records (Akatsuki Records)
Event: C97
Original theme: The Stone Baby and the Submerged Bovine [石の赤子と水中の牛]

Requested by: Juce Guildez

My take on this is that the first stanza is told from a human’s perspective, before it shifts to Urumi’s.


歌詞

此岸ライフ捨てちゃって
彼岸サイド目指しちゃって
畜生餓鬼道堕ちて地獄道
煩悩堪能もう三悪道
慈愛?無いっす地獄なんで
冷水ダイブ!あの世なんで
川越え泣き声どんぶらこっこ
あそこで泣くのはロックなBaby?!

おやっ人じゃねえ!
こりゃっ人じゃねえ!
そりゃそうじゃねねんねんころりよ
Oh yeah,人じゃねえ!
Oh no,鬼じゃね?
こりゃ手遅れころりよころりよ

ゆらゆらゆら揺りかごには石の赤ん坊!
(Wow, Rock-a-Bye Baby)

Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby~♪
ちょいとこの子抱いておくれ
やっと眠ったばかりなんだよ…優しく
Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby~♪
重くなるのは愛だからかもね
いつの間にか君も永眠ねんねん!

ブンブン両手振っちゃって
ノンノンNot yet来るなって?
鬼さん鬼さん鬼さんこちら
南無三わからん帰らばどちら?

おやっ人じゃねえ!
ありゃっ鬼じゃね?
そりゃそうじゃねころりよころりよ

呪うような子守歌が三途川から
(Oh Rock-a-Bye Baby!)

Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby~♪
ちょいとこの子抱いておくれ
やっと眠ったばかりなんだよ…優しく
Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby~♪
重くなるのは愛だからかもね
いつの間にか君も永眠ねんねん!

Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby♪
何も心配いらないよ
安らかに眠ってこの胸に抱かれて
Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby♪
怖いことはなにも起きないよ
食べちゃいたいくらいに
カワイイBaby…

ねんねんころりよOh,ころりよ…
ねんねんころりよOh,ころりよ…

Translation

I threw away my life in this world
and headed higan-side.
I fall through the beastly gaki-dou into jigoku-dou.
Enjoy human passions and it’s straight to san’aku-dou. (1)
Kindness? Like there’s any in hell.
Take a cold dive! This is the netherworld
so cries from the river-crossers tumble around.
Is that a rock baby crying over there?!

Huh, it’s a human!
You’re human, aren’t you?
Isn’t that right? Rock-a-bye baby!
Oh yeah, it’s a human!
Oh no, you’re not an oni, are you?
It’s too late. Rock, rock-a-bye!

A stone baby is in the rocking cradle!
(Wow, Rock-a-Bye Baby)

Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby!♪
Hold this kid for a bit.
They’ve just fallen asleep at last… be gentle.
Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby!♪
I guess they’re getting heavier ‘cuz you love them.
Soon you’ll be sleeping forever too. Nighty-night!

With a shake, I wave my hands.
No, no, not yet. Huh, don’t come closer?
Oni, oni, oni, come this way.
Namusan, don’t you know? Don’t you know the way home?

Huh, it’s a human!
You’re human, aren’t you?
Isn’t that right? Rock, rock-a-bye!

The lullaby is like a curse coming from the Sanzu River.
(Oh Rock-a-Bye Baby!)

Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby!♪
Hold this kid for a bit.
They’ve just fallen asleep at last… be gentle.
Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby!♪
I guess they’re getting heavier ‘cuz you love them.
Soon you’ll be sleeping forever too. Nighty-night!

Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby!♪
You don’t need to worry.
Rest in peace, held close to my chest.
Rock! Rock-a-Bye Baby!♪
Nothing scary’s gonna happen.
I just wanna eat you up
my cute baby…

Rock-a-bye baby. Oh, rock-a-bye…
Rock-a-bye baby. Oh, rock-a-bye…
