BackgroundEdit

"Iroha Uta" is a song featuring Kagamine Rin by Ginsaku. On February 12, just one day after the song is uploaded, it ranked first in the Weekly VOCALOID Ranking. It reached the Niconico Hall of Fame on February 16, 2009 (5 days after it was uploaded) and reached one million views on November 20, 2010.

This song uses the "Iroha", an old Japanese poem famous for its perfect pangram, containing each character of the Japanese syllabary only once. The poem was used as an ordering for the syllabary in old Japan.

There are various interpretations to the song, one being that it tells a story of a servant and a master, the servant being willing to do and be anything the master commands. Another common interpretation would be the song talks about a couple of lovers.

LyricsEdit

Japanese (日本語歌詞) Romaji (ローマ字)
アナタガ望ムノナラバ anata ga nozomu no naraba
犬ノヤウニ従順ニ inu no you ni juujun ni
紐ニ縄ニ鎖ニ himo ni nawa ni kusari ni
縛ラレテアゲマセウ shibararete agemashou

アルイハ子猫ノヤウニ aruiwa koneko no you ni
愛クルシクアナタヲ aikurushiku anata o
指デ足デ唇デ yubi de ashi de kuchibiru de
喜バセテアゲマセウ yorokobasete agemashou

どちらが先に 溺れただとか dochira ga saki ni oboreta da to ka
そんなこと どうでもいいの sonna koto dou de mo ii no

色は匂へど 散りぬるを iroha nihoheto chirinuru o
我が世誰ぞ 常ならん waga yo dare zo tsune naran
知りたいの もっともっと深くまで shiritai no motto motto fukaku made

有為の奥山 今日越えて ui no okuyama kyou koete
浅き夢見じ 酔ひもせず asaki yume miji yoi mo sezu
染まりましょう アナタの色 somarimashou anata no
ハニホヘトチリヌルヲ iroha nihoheto chirinuru o

(Ahhhhh....) (Ahhhhh....)

例ヘバ椿ノヤウニ tatoeba tsubaki no you in
冬ニ咲ケト云フナラ fuyu ni sake to iu nara
雪ニ霜ニ身体ヲ yuki ni shimo ni karada o
晒シテ生キマセウ sarashite ikimashou

アルイハ気高ヒ薔薇ノ aruiwa kedakai bara no
散リ際ガ見タヒナラ chirigiwa ga mitai nara
首ニ髪ニ香リヲ kubi ni kami ni kaori o
纏ワセテ逝キマセウ matowasete ikimashou

骨の髄まで 染まってもまだ hone no zui made somatte mo mada
それだけじゃ 物足りないの sore dake ja monotarinai no

色は匂へど 散りぬるを iroha nihoheto chirinuru o
我が世誰ぞ 常ならん waga yo dare zo tsune naran
知りたいの もっともっと深くまで shiritai no motto motto fukaku made

有為の奥山 今日越えて ui no okuyama kyou koete
浅き夢見じ 酔ひもせず asaki yume miji yoi mo sezu
変わりましょう アナタの為に 嗚呼 kawarimashou anata no tame ni

(Ahhhh....) (Ahhhh....)

色は匂へど 散りぬるを iroha nihoheto chirinuru o
我が世誰ぞ 常ならん waga yo dare zo tsune naran
知りたいの もっともっと深くまで shiritai no motto motto fukaku made

有為の奥山 今日越えて ui no okuyama kyou koete
浅き夢見じ 酔ひもせず asaki yume miji yoi mo sezu
堕ちましょう アナタと ochimashou anata to
イロハニホヘト ドコマデモ iroha nihoheto doko made mo

(Ahhh....) (Ahhh....)
