Kanji Romaji English
スレンダーカメレオン
あなたなんかいらない
誰の色にも染まらないカメレオン
Slender Chameleon
anata nanka iranai
dare no iro ni mo somaranai chameleon

Slender Chameleon,
I don’t need you or anything
A chameleon doesn’t get dyed by anyone’s color
砂時計がおちるわず
かな間に七色に変わる
春·夏·秋·冬と
移り気な女たち
足元を見れない
焦る男たち
ネクタイをなおし
「流行り病だから…」
言い聞かせて酔うの
sunadokei ga ochiruwazu
kana aida ni nanairo ni kawaru
haru natsu aki fuyu to
utsurigi na onnatachi
ashimoto wo mirenai
aseru otokotachi
necktie wo naoshi
“hayari yamai dakara…”
iikikasete you no
In the little time it takes for an
hourglass to fall,
it takes the colors of the rainbow
Women with mood swings
like spring-summer-autumn-winter
Men who can’t see their
underfeet fixing their neckties
Preaching “because that’s epidemic…”
and getting drunk
心配なら同じ時計
を持ちましょうよ
ただしついて来れるのならね
shinpai nara onaji tokei
wo mochimashou yo
tadashi tsuite kureru no nara ne
If you’re worried,
let’s hold the same clock
Provided that you can come along
スレンダーカメレオン
あなたなんかいらない
昨日の私は他人よ
スレンダーカメレオン
あなたなんかいらない
誰の色にも染まらないカメレオン
Slender Chameleon
anata nanka iranai
kinou no watashi wa tanin yo
Slender Chameleon
anata nanka iranai
dare no iro ni mo somaranai chameleon
Slender Chameleon,
I don’t need you or anything
My yesterday’s self is a stranger
Slender Chameleon,
I don’t need you or anything
A chameleon doesn’t get dyed by anyone’s color
体ごとアンテナ
聞こえてくる音
肌くすぶる風
それはささいなこと
あなたでも見えない
コツコツ歩いてく
そこのお嬢さん
あなたも同じね
心は変化する
出来るならスマートに
karada goto antenna
kikoete kuru oto
hada kusuburu kaze
sore wa sasai na koto
anata demo mienai
kotsukotsu aruiteku
soko no ojousan
anata mo onaji ne
kokoro wa henka suru
dekiru nara smart ni
Using my body as an antenna,
I can hear a sound,
the wind smoldering my skin
That’s a trivial thing,
people like you can’t see it
That young lady over there
is walking steadily,
and you’re the same too, right?
The heart is transforming,
if possible, getting smart
逃げる鳥みたいに言う
のはやめましょうよ
誰のせいにするつもりなの?
nigeru tori mitai ni iu
no hayamemashou
dare no sei ni suru tsumori na no?
Let’s stop saying things
like fleeting birds
Because of who are you planning on doing so?
スレンダーカメレオン
あなたなんかいらない
昨日の私は他人よ
スレンダーカメレオン
あなたなんかいらない
誰の色にも染まらないカメレオン
Slender Chameleon
anata nanka iranai
kinou no watashi wa tanin yo
Slender Chameleon
anata nanka iranai
dare no iro ni mo somaranai chameleon
Slender Chameleon,
I don’t need you or anything
My yesterday’s self is a stranger
Slender Chameleon,
I don’t need you or anything
A chameleon doesn’t get dyed by anyone’s color
スレンダーカメレオン
素直に受け止めてよ
誰の色にも染まらないカメレオン
Slender Chameleon
sunao ni uketomete yo
dare no iro ni mo somaranai chameleon
Slender Chameleon,
accept it honestly
A chameleon doesn’t get dyed by anyone’s color
スレンダーカメレオン
あなたなんかいらない
誰の色にも染まらないカメレオン
Slender Chameleon
anata nanka iranai
dare no iro ni mo somaranai chameleon
Slender Chameleon,
I don’t need you or anything
A chameleon doesn’t get dyed by anyone’s color
