JUN TOGAWA – THE INDIAN NEXT DOOR [TONARI NO INDOJIN] (1984)

lyrics by KENZO SAEKI | music by TAKAO HIGAE

A holdover song from Halmens. Kind of racist. I’m translating it because with this it means all of Tamahime-sama has been translated.

Translation and notes are under the cut:

The Indian next door
What is he doing?
The Indian next door
Let’s go out and play
The Indian next door
Let’s ride the subway
And go to the zoo

His kids are Indian too
Curry rice
His kids are Indian too
Won’t you teach me how to wrap a turban

“To go back now, after so long…”
He’s been living next to me for
“To go back now, after so long…”
10 years 10 years 10 years
Japanese summers are sweltering
But still somehow cool
