Lyrics (Yu Aku)
Osake wa nurumeno kangaii
sakana wa abutta ika de ii
on'na wa mukuchina hitogaii
akari wa bonyari tomoryaii
shimi jimi nomeba shimi jimito
omoide dake ga yuki suguiru
namida ga pororito koboretara
utai dasunosa funa utawo

Oki no kamome ni fukazake saseteyo
itoshi ano ko toyo
asane suru danchone

Miseni wa kazari ga naigaii
madokara minato ga mieryaii
hayari no uta nado nakuteii
tokidoki muteki ga narebaii
horo horo nomeba horo horoto
kokoro ga susuri naite iru
ano koro ano ko wo omottara
utai dasunosa funa utawo

Potsu potsu nomeba potsu potsu
to miren ga mune ni mai modoru
yofukete sabishiku nattanara
utai dasunosa funa utawo
Sake a little warm is the best
sakana a toasted squid is fine
Ladies the quiet type is the best
Lights softly burning would be fine
Shimi jimi drinking shimi jimi
Only memories go on by
If a teardrop happens to fall
I start singing the boatman's song

Make off shore seagulls drink very much sake
And with the lovely lady sleep
in the morning

A decoration less bar is the best
Seeing the port from the window is fine
Without  any hit songs would be fine
the steam whisle sometimes sounding is fine
Horohoro drinking horohoroly
My hear is crying silently
When I think then of then and her
I start singing the boatman's song

Potsupotsu drinking Potsupotsu
Old memories come back to me
Late at night when I get only
I start singing the boatman's song
Trivia :
Another yu aku's song !
