Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Samui no wa nigate na n desu
Zutto soto ni oite'tara
yowatte shimau ka mo desu
Soredemo ikite'masu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I don't do well in the cold.
If you leave me outside for a long time
I might get sick.
But I'm still alive.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tama ni mizu o kureta nara
sore dake de ganbaremasu
Tokai no sabaku no naka
takumashiku ikite'masu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If you give me water once in a while
I can manage with that.
In the desert of the city
I'm alive and well.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Chikazuitara toge ga sasaru
Tada no terekakushi da kara sa hora

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If you get too close my spines will prick you.
It's because I'm hiding my embarrassment, see.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Chiisai koto mo tsumikasanetara
kitto chiisai hana
saku to omou no desu
Ikinuki bakari shite'ru to
sono uchi oashisu mo
karechau deshō ā
Sabotte n na yo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If only you would keep doing some little things
I'm sure that I'll make
a little flower.
If all you do is rest
while you do that even an oasis
would dry up, ah!
Don't neglect me! (1)

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hikage bakari ni oite'tara
hana nante sakasemasen
Taiyō o aogu yō ni
sō shite ikite'masu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If you keep putting me in the shade
you won't let me make any flowers.
To be looking up at the sun
that's how I live.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tama ni hanashikaketa nara
yoku sodatsu yō ni narimasu
Kyōretsu na hizashi no naka
takumashiku ikite'masu

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If you sometimes talk to me
you'll help me grow well.
In strong sunlight
I'm alive and well.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Chikazuite yo Itaku nai yo
Tada no mieppari da kara sa hora

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Come close, it won't hurt.
It's because I just want to show off, see!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Iya na koto darake tsumikasanetara
toge ga mata hitotsu to
fuete iku deshō ga
tatakau koto o yametara
megumi no ame sae mo
mō konai deshō ā
Sabotte n na yo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If you only keep doing things I don't like
I'll keep growing
one spine after another,
but if I stop fighting
even the occasional merciful rain
won't come any more, ah!
Don't neglect me!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Iya na koto o nagedashitai
Omou dake tsuyogari da kara hora

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
I want to throw out the stuff I don't like.
It's because I act as tough as I want, see!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Chiisai toge mo fuete ittara
subete umetsukushite
maruku naru no deshō
Sōshite kitto itsuka wa
hitomawari ōkiku
sodatsu no deshō ā
Sabotte n na yo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Even if keep getting more small spines,
I'll cover myself entirely
and I'll get plump.
This way, one day
I'll grow to be
a size bigger.
Don't neglect me!

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Chiisai koto mo tsumikasanetara
kitto chiisai hana
saku to omou no desu
Ikinuki bakari shite'ru to
sono uchi oashisu mo
karechau deshō ā
Sabotte n na yo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
If only you would keep doing some little things
I'm sure that I'll make
a little flower.
If all you do is rest
while you do that even an oasis
would dry up, ah!
Don't neglect me!
