Mirrorball

Miss Hiroko explained the “kuchi ga sakete mo” bit: apparently this is a phrase that means something like “my mouth is shut, and even if you cut it open (as in, like, slicing my cheeks open) I still won’t say it”. There is a legendary Japanese type of ghost called “kuchisake onna” which is a woman with her mouth all cut open on both sides and blood dripping all over who shows up and goes, “DO YOU THINK I’M PRETTY!?!?”. So, now you can have some new nightmares with that one. Cheers!

ほらね 今にね 泣き出すよ

ひろみちゃんてば いつもずるいの
hora ne ima ni ne nakidasu yo

Look, now she’ll start crying
Little Hiroai is always like that
Next she’ll call for her mama
Little Hiromi is always so mean
「謝りなさい」 どなる声

The voice yelling “apologize”
This is not something to cry about
“A kid with a bad attitude”, I’m sorry
Is something I’ll never say, even if you cut my mouth open

“Apologize”, that voice again
This is not something to cry about
“An un-cute kid”, I’m sorry
Is something I’ll never say til the day I die
