Lyrics from
hitotsu  futatsu  afureru you ni
tsumi o kurai  ima o ikite'ru
sore wa  sore wa  GAJUMARU no ki ni
hisomu  chiisana  muko no mononoke

Lyrics from
One sin, two sins, more and more,
they live their current life eating sins.
They are little blameless monsters
who live discreetly in the banyan tree.

Lyrics from
KENMUN no nozomi o  kanaeru tame naraba
hito no yasashisa de mo  taisetsu na mono sae mo

Lyrics from
For a Kenmun to make its wish come true,
it will swallow up people's tenderness

Lyrics from
makikonde  ookiku naru
sore wa kimi mo  boku mo onaji darou
dakara sa  semete hana o
chiisakute mo  nani mo iwanai darou

Lyrics from
among other precious things to grow bigger.
Actually, aren't you and I the same?
So I'll at least wish for flowers to bloom on this tree.
They won't say anything even if they turn out small.

Lyrics from
hitori  futari  kazoeru you ni
hito o kurai  toki o ikite'ru
sore wa  sore wa  GAJUMARU no ki ni
ookina  hana o  sakaseru tame ni

Lyrics from
One human, two humans, counting on and on,
they live through their time eating humans.
They do so in order to make great flowers bloom
on the banyan tree.

Lyrics from
GAJUMARU no ki ni wa sa
shiawase no hana no kotoba ga aru

Lyrics from
You see, on the banyan tree,
there are words of the flowers of happiness.

Lyrics from
KENMUN no nozomi mo  hito mo taberu tame nara
koroshite  koroshite  yoku o mitasu
KENMUN no negai mo  hito mo ikiru tame nara
ayamete  ayamete  ayametsukusu

Lyrics from
If a Kenmun's wish is to eat humans,
it will kill and kill to satiate its desire.
If a Kenmun's wish is to let humans live,
it will kill and kill, until the very end.

Lyrics from
dakara sa  semete hana o
chiisakute mo  dare mo semenai darou

Lyrics from
So I'll at least wish for flowers to bloom on this tree.
Nobody will criticize me even if they turn out small.

Lyrics from
dakara sa  semete kimi mo
tatoe donna ni chiisakute mo

Lyrics from
So you too, at least, should try,
no matter how small the flowers turn out.

Note: In Japanese folklore, Kenmun are small monsters with red skin and hair and a face resembling that of a monkey or a dog. Possessing the ability to transfigure, they live in and watch over the banyan trees. However, in this song, Kenmun are humans wrongfully sentenced to death and eternally bound to the banyan trees. They come back to life as monsters and would eat anything, even humans, in order to make banyan flowers bloom.
