Original / Romaji LyricsEnglish Translation
Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tonari no ossan wa
mainichi tsukareta kao shite
yūgure jūrokuji kurai ni
baito ni dekakete iku no sa
Kaeru koro wa makkura na
shin'ya no nijūyoji gurai de
ososugiru bangohan wa
urenokori no bentō

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Every day, the bloke next door
puts on a tired face
and around four in the afternoon
sets off to his part-time job.
When he gets home it's dark
and very late, around midnight,
and his overdue dinner
is what lunchbox leftovers he can buy.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Tonari no ossan wa
dōyara sui moku yasumi de
taitei wa ichinichijū
heya no naka hitoribotchi sa
Shumi na no ka shiranai keredo
akōsutikku gitā motte ite
yūgure jūshichiji kurai ni
kakinarashidasu n da

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The bloke next door seems to have
Wednesdays and Thursdays off
and usually spends all day
alone in his room.
I don't know what pastimes he's got
but he has an acoustic guitar
and around five in the afternoon
he begins to strum.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Oseji ni mo umai to wa ienai
Hetakuso na gitā no oto ni nosete utau
Sore wa amaku wa naku
nigai dake de setsunai
Yoreyore kasureta utagoe ga
kinjo ni hibiite ita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
You can't say he's good at it by any means.
He sings to the lousy sound of his guitar.
It's not sweet,
it's always sad and bitter.
His voice, worn out and hoarse,
echoed around the neighbourhood.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Mukashi wa yokatta nante kotoba
kuchi kara koboretari shite
ima no jibun ga iya ni naru kedo

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Once upon a time he was good--words
to that effect would leave his mouth,
even if what he's like now is awful.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Sabitsuita rokugen wa
uraigiru koto wa shinai yo
Namida nagashite hanamizu tarashite
ameagari niji o matte iru

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
His rusty six strings
never let him down.
He sheds tears, his nose drips,
and he waits for the rainbow after the rain.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Shiawase na jinsei mezashite
hitasura ayunde kita no darō ka
Umaku ikanai ne.
Ii koto sukunaku warui koto wa ippai
Soredemo haguruma to kashite
asu o ikinukō ka

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Was he aiming for a happy life
as he earnestly came this far?
It's not going well, is it?
Not much good, plenty of bad.
Yet even so, will he be another cog in society
and see through another day?

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Hetakuso na gitā no uta ga
kinjo ni hibiite ita

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
The lousy songs of his guitar
echoed around the neighbourhood.

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Yūgure jūhachiji kurai ni
kabe tatakaremashita ...

Lyrics from Animelyrics.com
Around six in the evening
the neighbours were banging on his wall ...
