Sukiyaki Song

The Japanese hit known in the west as "Sukiyaki" was released in Japan in 1961 as as "Ue wo Muite Arukou" ( "I will walk on with my head high" ). It was sung by Kyuu Sakamoto, composed by Hachidai Nakamura with lyrics by Rokusuke Ei. (The song became the number one hit in the United States in 1963.) The literal translation of the first part of the song is as below:

I will walk on with my head held high
so that my tears will not run down.
On a spring day I remember the night
when I was left alone (on my own).

I will walk on with my head held high,
counting the stars blurred by my tears.
On a summer day I remember the night
when I was left alone (on my own).
