I LOVE KOIKINGU
|Original / Romaji Lyrics||English Translation|
Totemo yuumei yowasugite
Mukashi wa totemo tsuyokatta? Sonna uwasa mo aru keredo
Ima wa tottemo yowai n da kanashii kurai ni yowai n da
Infamous for its exceeding weakness
Was it really strong in ancient times? Those are as the rumour have it
Now it's just super weak; so weak that it's seriously sad
Yowai POKEMON KOIKINGU amari no yowasa SHOKKINGU
The weak Pokémon, Magikarp - the depth of its weakness is shocking
Haneru dake de yama koeru
So much so that it can jump over mountains
Choushi ni notte hanetsudzuke toki ni PIJON ni tsukamaru yo
They can be so absorbed in jumping, that sometimes a Pidgeotto will carry them away
Haneru POKEMON KOIKINGU itsumo pitapita JAMPINGU
The jumping Pokémon, Magikarp - always noisily splashing around
Boro no tsurizao de tsuresugiru
With an Old Rod, you just keep fishing them out
Yurui kawa demo nagasareru dokoka ni dekiteru koidamari
Swept away even in gentle streams, schools of them turning up in places
Tsureta to omottara KOIKINGU KYATCHI ANDO IITO? NANSENSU!
If you hook a Magikarp, will you catch and later eat it? That's absurd!
Zenzen nakami kawaranai
Inside though, they're the same as any other
Oyaji ga utteta gohyaku-en! Henpin dekinai HAPUNINGU!
An old man sells them for 500 yen! It turns out that he doesn't accept any refunds!
Zannen POKEMON KOIKINGU ki ni shita koto nai RANKINGU
The disappointing Pokémon, Magikarp - it doesn't care at all about its ranking
Boku no POKEMON KOIKINGU roppiki soroete FAITINGU
You're my Pokémon, Magikarp - I'll make a team of six for battles
Koi ni koi suru KOIKINGU kimi ni sasageru LABU SONGU
I love loving you, Magikarp - that's why I'm writing this love song just for you
"Haneru", among other things, can mean to "jump" or "splash". I was undecided as to which to translate it as. On the one hand, "Splash" has long been the name of the infamous move. On the other, there is an entire app game devoted to Magikarp's ability to jump. Neither are wrong. You decide.
