Oddly Easy to Dance To

Especially if you’re high, I’m guessing. Cheers to the Japanese and whatever the hell they’re thinking sometimes.

Rough translation by u/erasyn:

Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
It sleeps until noon
dreaming it got up with the morning sun
Slowpoke
The pink skin isn’t scalded
It’s naturally like that
Slowpoke
Its big mouth is always open
like a convenience store
Slowpoke
The sweetness of its tail sometimes replaces kids’ snacks
Slowpoke
Its movements are sluggish
so pictures won’t be blurry
Was that bragging?
Slowpoke
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
Even if the tail is taken
it grows right back
so no worries
Slowpoke
Somebody classified it
”Dopey Pokémon”
Slowpoke
It starts with ”Slow”
and ends with ”oke”
Guess the two-syllable word:
Slowmoke
It fishes with its tail
and hooks something without noticing,
and loses it, without noticing
Slowpoke
I don’t recommend using Slowpoke’s name if you’re gonna play ”shiritori” [see /u/coldfusion3264[1] ’s explanation]
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
It can make the rain fall
with a single yawn,
the legend says.
But I haven’t seen a single cloud
What happened to the legend?
Slowpoke
If a Shellder bites its tail
it’ll become a Slowbro
its evolution is dopey, too
Slowpoke
Slowpokes exist somewhere in this world
Behind you, too
Slowpoke
Grated yam topping, egg topping, mixed bowl, nanban style curry with:
udon [a play on Slowpoke’s Japanese name, ”yadon”]
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, udon? [again, udon/yadon]
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
What’s your deal, Slowpoke?
A large nut fell on its head
but it didn’t hurt
Slowpoke
Its ears are flappy and swirley
… why’s that again?
Slowpoke
Suddenly you hear a ”yaan!”
Because it finally felt the nut
that had dropped on its head earlier
Slowpoke
Someday it’ll be Slowbro
and maybe even Slowking
or maybe it’ll stay the same
Slowpoke
They sure look happy
biting each other’s tails
and forming a ring like that
Slowpoke
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
Yaan, yaan, a-yaan
Slowpoke
