Western: GROOVE CRUSADERS – TWRP (ENG→JP Singable Lyrics)

(我らグルーヴ・クルセイダーズ!
(warera GROOVE CRUSADERS)

善人に犯人を作りますよ~
(zen’nin ni hanin wo tsukurimasu yo~) *

我らグルーヴ ・ クルセイダーズ!
(warera GROOVE CRUSADERS)

前線のディスコ戦争
(zensen no DISCO sensou)

我らグルーヴ・クルセイダーズ!
(warera GROOVE CRUSADERS)

そしてスコアをバランスを
(soshite SCORE wo BALANCE wo)


Oh

時間はもう
(jikan wa mou)

足りない
(tarinai)

その時は「グルーヴ・クルセイド」!
(sono toki wa “GROOVE CRUSADE”!)


{CHORUS}

楽しみに代わって
(tanoshimi ni kawatte)

お仕置きよ
(oshiyoki yo) **

退屈に対すが
(taikutsu ni taisu ga)

止められない
(tomerarenai)

俺らが来るので
(orera ga kuru node)

要注意
(youchuui) ***

退屈に対すが
(taikutsu ni taisu ga)

止められない
(tomerarenai)


我らグルーヴ・クルセイダーズ!
(warera GROOVE CRUSADERS)

善人に犯人を作りますよ~
(zen’nin ni hanin wo tsukurimasu yo~)

俺とグルーヴベビー
(ore to GROOVE BABY)

君のヒーローになりたい
(kimi no HERO ni naritai)

あなたはセックス爆弾だと
(anata wa SEX bakudan to)

俺のベッドはグラウンド・ゼロ
(ore no BED wa GROUND ZERO) ****


{CHORUS}


{VOICE OVER} *****

来週のグルーヴ・クルセイダーズ!
(raishuu no GROOVE CRUSADERS!)

遠い世界から4伝説の勇者が悪の勢力と戦うために一緒に来ます
(tooi sekai kara yon densetsu no yuusha ga aku no seiryoku to tatakau tame ni issho ni kimasu)  

どれは、「ザ・ヘイターズ」!
(dore wa “THE HATERS”)

彼らの目的は、「グルーヴと楽しみを盗み そして、憎しみを広めるために」
(karera no mokuteki wa, “GROOVE to tanoshimi wo nusumi soshite, nikushimi wo hiromeru tame ni”)

我々の英雄は彼らに勝つことはできますか?
(wareware no eiyuu wa katsu koto wa dekimasu ka?)

それとも、我々の「フォア・ファンキー・ファイターズ」は退屈に飲み込まれますか?
(soretomo, wareware no “FOUR FUNKY FIGHTERS” wa taikutsu ni nomikoma remasu ka?)

次回、グルーヴ・クルセイダーズ!
(jikai, GROOVE CRUSADERS!)


{CHORUS}


TL Notes:

  • * – there is no such phrase as ‘hater’ in the japanese language, and because of that, a straight translation of this line would not have worked. the meaning of this line translates more or less to “reforming criminals into philanthropists”!
  • ** – ‘we rule in the name of fun, we will groove as one’ had no way of fitting into the metering in japanese, so i’ve taken another liberty into turning this bit into a sailor moon pun. “in the name of fun, we will punish you!”
  • *** – encountered the same problem as the point above. this couplet reads as “because we’re coming, you should be alert”
  • **** – this couplet seemed awkward and wordy in japanese with the repetition of ‘anata no karada wa (your body is)’ and ‘ore no karada wa (my body is)’ so i’ve changed it to say “you are a sex bomb, and my bed is ground zero”
  • ***** – i am extremely iffy about this whole part so… it’s totally optional. i think it would sound just as cool with the english version inserted.
  • extra note 1: many concepts simply do not exist within the japanese language itself, and so it relies on a fair bit of english loan words. if you’ve listened to a lot of japanese music, you’ll notice a liberal peppering of english words and phrases. these exist within songs mostly to just sound cool. i believe this aspect of culture fits TWRP extremely well, and chose to keep some additional ideas in tact.
  • extra note 2: i’ve opted to have doctor sung use the pronoun ‘ore’ which is typically put to use by overtly masculine men. i thought he might like that.

as stated above, this isn’t just a vanilla translation. this is intended to be metered so that one may sing it as is! this is my first time doing the translating thing backwards!

if you’d like some help with the pronunciation, being as the metering is dependent on how certain words are said, i’ll try my best to help if asked privately.

i am not a native speaker, and japanese has been my hobby for about 8 years now. i have taken no formal classes, so parts may be a bit garbled to a fluent ear. if you could help me smooth out any kinks, it would be much appreciated!

that’s all from me! thanks for reading!
