Song Notes

yuki ya konko
B2 Yuki ya Konko

雪やこんこ 霰やこんこ
降っては 降っては
ずんずん つもる
山も野原も 綿帽子かぶり
枯木残らず 花が咲く

yuki ya konko arare ya konko
futte wa futte wa
zun zun tsumoru
yama mo nohara mo wata boushi kaburi
kareki nokorazu hana ga saku

Fall snow, fall hail!
As it keeps falling
It piles up and up.
The mountains and fields wear cotton wool hats.
The bare trees become covered in snowy flowers.

ゆきやこんこ 霰やこんこ
降っても 降っても
まだ降り やまぬ
犬は喜び 庭かけまわり
猫はこたつで まるくなる

yuki ya konko arare ya konko
futte mo futte mo
mada furi yamanu
inu wa yorokobi niwa kake mawari
neko wa kotatsu de maruku naru

Fall snow, fall hail!
No matter how much,
It doesn’t stop.
Dogs run around the garden with joy.
Cats curl up beside the fireplace.
