出づる月、招宴の唄

ENG title: The Departing Moon, Banquet Song

Mikazuki: The loitering star under the sky has no goals
Transient loneliness ends, disappears –

Shokudaikiri: Welcome, come in, now, let’s start
Tsurumaru: With surprises bursting forth
Kasen: And a welcome also in the air; to the free sky you like,
All: Go ahead and be entertained.

An invitation to a lovely feast is the greatest form of hospitality.
Let’s go to be healed, together, our hearts are full of laughter.
Because of good cooking and elegance, suddenly, your lip-smacking resounds.
In order for happiness to overflow, tonight, everybody sings.

Kasen: If you’re worn out, let’s get healed,
Tsurumaru: If you’re injured, let’s go to the refinery;
Being soaked in a medicated bath,
Kasen+Tsurumaru: Feels good, doesn’t it?

Kasen: Come now, let’s share tales of our travels
Tsurumaru: Let’s talk the entire night away, until we get sick of it
Shokudaikiri: Going beyond this one moment, as the seasons change,
All: Have fun even more

All: Being invited to take it easy in a refined festival isn’t so bad.
As a lamp burns, we’ll take turns clapping our hands,
Gentle sounds and music are all that’s needed to clear up one’s heart a little.
Everyone will dance tonight, to feel happy.

Mikazuki: All night I’ve been going through the mist, aah,
In the world of temporal things, I have seen the ends of [days] past,
I pray to the moon that tomorrow, [we] will dance, surely –

All: An invitation to a lovely feast is the greatest form of hospitality.
Let’s go to be healed, together, our hearts are full of laughter.
Because of good cooking and elegance, suddenly, your lip-smacking resounds.
In order for happiness to overflow, tonight,

Mikazuki: Everybody sings.
