Tune: Mothras’ Song
(Mosura No Uta)

I have been hooked on this song for a while now. I just love it’s sweet melody that it has. It a song from from the Toho series; the same one that does Godzilla. This song is for Mothra (Mosura) which is a giant moth creature that generally protects earth and it’s people and is categorized as being, “Pure of Heart”. The song was first sung by  the twin sister group, The Peanuts. The fairies’ famous song “Mosura No Uta” (“Mothra’s Song”) was first written in Indonesian, though the Shobijin (fairies) often sing Japanese approximations to the original lyrics. The song was composed by Yuji Koseki.  These are the lyrics in both Japanese and English:

 

Japanes version:

Mosura ya, Mosura

Dongan kasakuyan indo muu
Rosuto uiraadoa, hanaba hanabamuyan
Randa banunradan tounjukanraa
Kasaku yaanmu

 

English version:

Mothra, Oh Mothra
If we were to call for help
Overtime, Oversea
Like a wave you’d come
Our guardian angel
