Lyrics ()
Choito o-machi yo kuruma-ya-san
O-mae mikonde
tanomi ga go-zansu kono tegami
naisho de watashite naisho de henji ga
naisho de kuru you ni
dekya sen kaina

ee aite no namae wa
kiku dake yabo yo
uta no monku ni aru ja nai ka

hito no koiji wo jama suru yatsu wa
mado no tsuki sae nikurashii
ee kuruma-ya-san

sore de dou shita no kuruma-ya-san
o-mae sappari
o-yaku ni tatenai o-hitogara
naisho de watashite naisho no henji ga
naisho de kita no ni
doko e yatta no sa

ee wasurete kuru to wa
sorya ammari yo
uta no monku ni aru ja nai ka

ate ni naranai o-hito wa baka yo
ate ni suru hito motto baka
ee kuruma-ya-san
Wait a moment, Driver
I have a job for you
A small request. Take this letter
deliver it in secret, secretly get the reply
and then secretly come back here
you can do that, can't you?

ee the addressee's name,
just listen, rube,
is right here in the words to the song

He's a guy who intrudes in peoples' love life
Even the moon in the window is aggravating
eh, Driver?

So then, how did it go, Driver?
Please speak freely.
Don't stand on ceremony, be yourself.
You delivered it secretly, and secretly
you came back with the secret reply
So where'd you go?

ee if you don't remember
well, that's just too much
it's right here in the words to the song

Those who don't address (letters) are stupid
Those who do, are even more stupid
eh, Driver?
