ZOC – CHU-PURI (2019)

music and lyrics by SEIKO OOMORI

This is the B-side of idol group ZOC’s debut single, “Family Name.” I like the A-side a lot but I like the B-side even more. It’s pretty good. I had to look up some slang terms for this and I feel like a boomer now.

“Chu” is the Japanese onomatopoeia for a kiss. Think “mwah” in English.

Translation under the cut:

I wanna take a pic kissing in a photo booth
It’ll go viral on the internet
And when I’ve become famous
If I have a boyfriend, it’ll be crazy

Gotta live cleanly
Or else no one will support you
I’ve got a top-class dark history
So it might be risky

If you don’t have the resolve to bear the cross
Give that fame to me
I’m living fast, I’ve got it
Because I’ll be disappearing soon

Muuuu

Ah, aah, I don’t kill you
Ah, aah, since becoming an idol
The one who likes you too much
Is me, so come see me, I want to see you
Ah, aah, I don’t kill you
Ah, aah, change your icon
What kind of me is catchy? That in mind…
Look more at the insignificant maiden in front of you
I love you
Kiss princess – chu!

I realized
Under the T-shirt with my name on it
The letters in that boy’s name show through
Who’s the favorite?!

Even if you don’t have the resolve to bear it your entire life
You can just fall in love with me, simply
There’s a lot going on in my private life
And I’m happy as I am now, you know?

Haan

Ah, aah, I don’t kill you
Even you, with an age gap
Similar to me, somehow, and so
Even if there was something I couldn’t forgive
Ah, aah, I don’t kill you
Ah, aah, I like everything about you
And on one detail about you being you
If I was to stand there
What would that be called?
Kiss princess – chu!

Ah, aah, I don’t kill you
Ah, aah, since becoming an idol
The one who likes you too much
Is me, so come see me, I want to see you
Ah, aah, I don’t kill you
Ah, aah, change your icon
What kind of me is catchy? That in mind…
Look more at the insignificant maiden in front of you
I love you
Kiss princess – chu!
