Zoku Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei Opening Theme – Kuusou Rumba

Fantasy Rumba
Vocals: Otsuki Kenji and the Despair Girls
Lyrics: Otsuki Kenji
Composition: NARASAKI
Arrangement: NARASAKI

(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)
(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)
(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)
(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)

My wandering figure is exactly a rumba
(Your staggering figure is also a senseless rumba)
Even while I’m tottering, I’m living rumba
(If I look at you from the side, it seems like a dance rumba)
If you’d like, shall we dance together?
(No, no, I can’t dance with you)
Dance alone in vain rumba
(Don’t ever come again, be alone rumba)

Who decided my worth?
Tigers and leopards are in our hearts, too
(Because they don’t know that the beasts are lurking)
They stick a cheap price on me
And let me go!

C’mon, run around trying to escape during that gap
Dance, for we are a rumba
To have a light smile with you-
I don’t know
When that day will come

(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)
(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)
(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)
(Rumba rumba rumba rumba rumba)

A late-night mail order lecture rumba
(You, who can dance just by watching, is also a rumba)
Isn’t that expensive? How much is it rumba?
(If sold in a set, there’s a discount rumba)
If so, how about having us in a set?
(No, no, I don’t want to be in a set with you)
If I lose, it’s a frustrating life rumba
(A stamping and stomping on the ground life rumba)

Who decided my worth?
Stars and flowers are in our hearts, too
(Because they don’t know that you’re shining)
They stuck a cheap price on me and underrated me
(Because they don’t know that you sharpen your fangs and claws)
They stick a special price on me
And eat me up!

C’mon, run around trying to escape during that gap
Dance the real rumba
To have a light smile with you-
That day will come
(I believe in it rumba)

If there’s worth in people
Then who decides that?
Shall I decide on a price, too?
I’m unable to even
Decide your value
I don’t know what it is

Sore nara bokura nado setto ni dou ja?

空想ルンバ
歌:大槻ケンヂと絶望少女達
作詞:大槻ケンヂ
作曲:NARASAKI
編曲:NARASAKI

(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)
(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)
(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)
(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)

さまよう姿はさながらルンバ
(よろめく姿も目茶苦茶ルンバ)
ふらつきながらも生きていルンバ
(はたからみりゃダンスに見えルンバ)
よければ一緒に踊りませんか?
(いえいえアナタじゃ踊れませんわ)
一人でむなしい踊ろよルンバ
(おととい来やがれ一人でルンバ)

俺の値段を誰が決めた?
虎や豹が僕らの心にも
(獣たちがひそむこと 知らないからやつら)
安い値をつけやがって
解き放つぜ!

さぁ、逃げまどえその隙に
踊ろよ 僕たちは ルンバ
微笑み 軽やかに 君と
その日は来るのか
わからなくて

(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)
(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)
(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)
(ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ ルンバ)

深夜の通販レクチャールンバ
(観るだけ踊れるアナタもルンバ)
お高いでしょうねおいくらルンバ?
(セットで売るならお値引きルンバ)
それなら僕などセットにどうじゃ?
(いえいえアナタとせっとはいやじゃ)
負けたらくやしい人生ルンバ
(地団駄踏め踏め人生ルンバ)

俺の値段を誰が決めた?
星や花が僕らの心にも
(輝いていることを 知らないからやつら)
安い値をつけやがって たかをくくったな
(牙や爪を研ぐことを 知らないからやつら)
破格値をつけやがって
食らいつけ!

さぁ、逃げまどえその隙に
踊ろよ 本当の ルンバ
微笑み 軽やかに 君と
その日が来るのを
(信じてルンバ)

人に値段があるのなら
それは誰が決めるのか?
僕もプライスを決めようか?
君の価値さえも
決めかねて
わからなくて
