The famous Hanayome song

Kinran donsu no obi shime nagara
Hanayome goryoo wa naze naku no daro

Bunkin shimada ni kamiyui nagara
Hanayome goryoo wa naze naku no daro

Anesan gokko no hanayome ningyoo wa
Akai kanoko no hurisode kiteru

Nake ba kanoko no tamoto ga kireru
Namida de kanoko no akai beni nijimu

Naku ni nakarenu hanayome ningyoo wa
Akai kanoko no chiyogami ishoo



bunkin shimada 文金島田 bridal hair decoration


Although she wears a golden brocade sash,
I wonder, why does the bride cry?

Although her hair is done up in the bunkin shimada,
I wonder why does the bride cry.

Behold, here is a play doll which wears
a red kanoko kimono, with long draping sleeves.

When she cries the kanoko sleeves get wet by the tears,
and a brighter shade of red spreads through the cloth.

The bride doll cannot cry, even if she wanted to.
For she's a paper doll,
wearing the bridal kimono of red kanoko.
