kanji & kana

    逆(さか)上がり
    足で地面を蹴って
    太陽がぐるりと回った

    何年かぶりに来た校庭の隅に
    懐かしいね この鉄棒
    こんな低かったかな 腰の辺りなのに
    あの頃は怖かった

    蝉の声が思い出させる
    夏の日の白いブラウスが汗ばんでいた

    逆上がり
    足で地面を蹴って
    太陽がぐるりと回った
    逆上がり
    少し大人になって
    風景が違って見えるよ

    好きだった男の子 隣に並んで
    ただ何度も 回ってたっけ
    私だけできなくて 途中であきらめ
    彼の背を眺めていた

    指のまめと鉄の匂いが
    初恋を教えようとして
    くれてたのかな

    逆上がり
    風を感じる瞬間
    放課後のチャイムが鳴ったね
    逆上がり
    ある日できていたのよ
    偶然の"ぐるり"は一人で・・・

    逆上がり
    足で地面を蹴って
    太陽がぐるりと回った
    逆上がり
    少し大人になって
    風景が違って見えるよ

    逆上がり
    なぜか泣けて来るのよ
    知らぬ間にちゃんと回れること
    逆上がり
    あの時の男の子
    好きだとは言えなかったけれど・・・

english translation

    Up and over
    I kick off the ground with my feet,
    And the sun turns about

    After so many years in the corner of playground of the school I went to,
    Is this nostalgic steel bar
    It was so low, only coming up to my hips,
    But back then it was so scary

    I remember the sound of the cicadas
    And my white summer shirt got all sweaty

    Up and over
    I kick off the ground with my feet,
    And the sun turns about
    Up and over
    I matured a bit,
    And the scenery looks so different now

    The boy I liked lined up next to me,
    And so many times he'd spun over,
    It was just me who couldn't go over; I would stop halfway
    I was always watching him from behind

    The blisters on my fingers and the smell of the steel
    I wonder if they were trying to teach me about
    About my first love

    Up and over
    The moment I felt the wind,
    The afterschool chime went off
    Up and over
    One day I was able to do it
    And suddenly, I was the only person "around here"…

    Up and over
    I kick off the ground with my feet,
    And the sun turns about
    Up and over
    I matured a bit,
    And the scenery looks so different now

    Up and over
    For some reason, I'm now able to cry
    Without knowing it I went over
    Up and over
    That boy back then
    I wasn't able to tell him that I liked him…


    Forward, upward circling
    Kicking the ground with my feet,
    the sun spun around

    I came to this part of the grounds for the first time in years
    These bars are so nostalgic
    Were they really this low? They're at my hip, but
    they were scary then

    I remember the chirping of the cicadas
    and my sweaty, white blouse on that summer day

    Forward, upward circling
    Kicking the ground with my feet,
    the sun spun around
    Forward, upward circling
    I became a little more of an adult
    I see the scenery differently now

    The boy I liked lined up next to me
    and just spun around several times
    I was the only one who couldn't do it, and I gave up half-way through
    I gazed at his back

    I wonder if the blisters on my fingers, and the smell of the steel
    were trying to teach me
    about first love

    Forward, upward circling
    The moment I felt the wind,
    the after-school bell rung
    Forward, upward circling
    I did it one day
    I was all alone for my accidental "spin"...

    Forward, upward circling
    Kicking the ground with my feet,
    the sun spun around
    Forward, upward circling
    I became a little more of an adult
    I see the scenery differently now

    Forward, upward circling
    For some reason, I'm crying
    about how I managed to do it without realizing
    Forward, upward circling
    Even though that boy
    didn't tell me that he liked me...
