Golden Oldies

Someone emailed me to ask me about the lyrics of a Japanese oldie "Manatsu no Dekigoto," sung by Hirayama Miki (平山みき). I was in my teens when the song became a huge hit in Japan. My impression of the song those days was, uh, nothing but that it was sung by a woman in a strange voice. I think I see her sing it on TV programs of golden oldies every once in a while.

I found a video clip.

Do you like it? I remember M once said she liked the song very much. I guess there are a lot of non-Japanese fans of the song. If you like it, tell me how you like it.

So, J, I'll email you the Romaji lyrics. A translation? Well, ask M if she did it. ;)
