Hi mama lisa. I am Ling ling from Indonesia. I am looking for the lyrics to a Japanese song, I hope you can help me.
The title is OKINAKURINO KINO SHITA DE. My teacher taught me this song when I was in high school and I have forgotten the lyrics. Here’s what I know…

Okina kurino kino shita de, anata to watashi…. (and bla bla bla…)

Please help me?

If anyone can help out with the lyrics to this song, or a translation, please comment below, or email me.

Thanks!

Lisa

    It goes…..

    “Okina Kurino Kinoshitade
    Anata to Watashi Nakayoku Asobimasho
    Okina Kurino Kinoshitade”

    It also has easy body movement.
    Good song for kids.

    If you, or someone else, could provide an English translation, that would be great!

    Here is the literal translation:

    “Under the Big Chestnut Tree
    You and I, let’s play together happily
    Under the Big Chestnut Tree”

    Thank you everyone for your help!

    Now I recognize the song. I have it on my Mama Lisa’s Japanese Song Pages along with other Japanese children’s songs and traditional folks songs.

    Click the following link for Okina Kurino Kinoshitade – Under the Big Chestnut Tree – there you’ll find a midi of the tune, the musical score and the Japanese text.

    I believe there are other verses to this song. If anyone knows them, please let us know so I can add them to the site. I’d also be happy to post a recording if anyone would like to sing it for us!

    Everybody’s help is greatly appreciated!

    okino kuri no kino shita de anata to watashi nakayoku asobimasho oki na kuri no kino shita de.There is also a dance with it.First you put your hands over your head and make a shape of an o then you touch your head ,shoulder,then the side of your legs point after that point to some one and point to yourself.then you put hands on your chest cross one by one and then shake left and right then you make the O again andtouch your head,shoulders,and the side of your legs.I know it may be confusing how i describe it but you might find some thing to show yo uhow it look s like.
