Junko Ohashi – Telephone Number

Title:  大橋純子 – テレフォン・ナンバー
Album: Tea for Tears
Release Date: Jun 2010

I heard this “Awoo 56709” song while browsing through silly memes.  I didn’t expect it to have Japanese lyrics in the beginning, but just the sense of longing in the first verse was enough to spark my curiosity in this old classic.  After finding the lyrics, I felt the song really connected with my mood, so I had to share it.


  • Ah Uu… 56709
  • Ah Uu… 56709

Romaji

wasurenaide watashi no terefon nanbaa
komatta toki daiyaru shite hoshii itsudemo

[collapse]

  • 忘れないで 私のテレフォンNo.
  • 困った時ダイヤルして欲しい いつでも
  • Don’t forget my telephone number
  • I want you to dial it anytime you’re worried

Romaji

sou every night nomi tsudzuketeiru anata no
sabishisa ni aa… kidzuiteta aa…

[collapse]

  • そうevery night 飲み続けているあなたの
  • 淋しさにAh… 気づいてたAh…
  • Yes,  every night that you continue to drink
  • I had noticed it, ah… Your loneliness, ah…
  • Oh… loving you…
  • Ah Uu… 56709
  • Ah Uu… 56709

Romaji

se no takai anata ga chiisaku mieru kara

  • 背の高いあなたが小さく見えるから
  • 旅立つ朝 笑顔で行って欲しい お願い
  • Since you are tall but appear shorter than you are
  • In the morning, I want you to leave with a smile, please

Romaji

kurasu wa
kono ai ni aa…  kidzuitara aa…

  • そうevery day Bellを気にしては
  • 暮らすわ
  • この愛にAh… 気づいたらAh…
  • Yes, everyday I go on waiting
  • for the phone to ring[1]Literally “to pay attention to bell”.  Phones originally used bells to ring, so you would sometimes say “waiting for the bell to ring”.
  • For when you notice, ah…  this love, ah…
  • Oh… loving me…
  • Ah Uu… 56709
  • Ah Uu… 56709
