CLEVER MONKEY

Romaji and English translation of the song CLEVER MONKEY from the single REMEMBER THE URGE by the GazettE.

(Not much translation required – there was only one line that wasn’t already in English.)

Translator's Notes
  • Lyrics originally sung in English are in italics , and words or phrases I felt were implied are in [brackets] in the translation.
  • I also (usually) put repeats of chorus/verses/stanzas in [brackets] if they’re not written that way in the original lyrics for ease of singing along.
  • If he writes a word in the lyrics but doesn’t sing it, I put it in light grey to make it easier to skip when singing along.
  • I usually romajize katakana characters in CAPITALS, and keep punctuation and line spacing as close to the original booklet as possible. If you see me putting spaces before punctuation at the end of a sentence or writing things in mixed-case capitals, that’s because it’s how it was in the booklet.
  • Any comments I had during the romajization/translation process will be included as footnotes so as not to disturb the flow of the song. They’re not required reading, but Ruki does some pretty nifty things with his lyrics/kanji choices, or sometimes there’s further explanations about words or phrases in there.

CLEVER MONKEY: Romaji

I send this song to the honest pink monkey
Amaya kasareta sono tsura no kawa kono ba de
I tear it off

Dance until you die
Ungainly boy
You are too different from me
If you want stimulation
Oh, I give it

This is not hatred for you
Will it be some kind of mistakes to be overconfident?

Answer motherfucker

You are clever monkey (different from me)
You are clever monkey (ungainly boy)
You are clever monkey (dance until you die)
You are clever monkey (know yourself)

Ungainly boy

If you want stimulation

Oh, this is not hatred for you
Will it be some kind of mistakes to be overconfident?
That’s too bad….

You are clever monkey (different from me)
You are clever monkey (ungainly boy)
You are clever monkey (dance until you die)
You are clever monkey (know yourself)

CLEVER MONKEY: Translation

I send this song to the honest pink monkey
In this scene, you’re hiding that face behind a pampered mask
I tear it off

Dance until you die
Ungainly boy
You are too different from me
If you want stimulation
Oh, I give it

This is not hatred for you
Will it be some kind of mistakes to be overconfident?
