Hey old tortoise, old tortoise I have written the Japanese lyrics in a way which I hope helps English speakers pronounce the words. How come in all the world, in all of the world No-one else is as slow, as slow as you Hey old tortoise, why are you so slow Moshi moshi kameyo kameh sanyo Sekayee no uchee day omayeh hodo Ayumee no norahee mono wa nehee Dosheeta sonanni norohee nokah Silly young rabbit what is that you say? I will run a race with you to show of what I’m made We will race all the way to the mountain over there I wonder who will get there first, the tortoise or the hare? Nanto ossharo usagee sahn Sorenara omahee toe kahkeh kurabe Mukoo no oyamah no whomoto mahdeh Dochira ga saki ni kake tsuku ka?
Dee See Nee Senang Dee Sah Na Senang Dee manna manna Hattee koo senang La la la la… Translation: Here I am happy There I am happy Everywhere my heart is happy.
