[Lyrics] K-ON!! Insert song – Gohan wa Okazu [HO-KAGO TEA TIME]

gohan-wa-okazu

Gohan wa Okazu or Rice as a Side Dish was an insert song during episode 20 of K-ON second season. It was played as part of their cultural festival concert though Yui came up with the lyrics back in episode 17. It’s really quirky as one can imagine a rice song can be but that’s what makes it fun. I left most foods in the song in romaji form as translations for certain foods can be awkward. Please use other sources in case you don’t know what type of foods they are. Anyway translation below:

Romaji

Gohan wa sugoi yo Nandemo au yo Hokahoka
Raamen Udon ni Okonomiyaki Korekore
Tansuikabutsu to tansuikabutsu no

(Atsuatsu Hokahoka)

Gohan wa sugoi yo Nai to komaru yo
Mushiro gohan ga okazu da yo
Kansaijin nara yappari okonomiyaki & gohan

Demo watashi Kansaijin ja nai n desu

Ichi-Ni-San-Shi-GO-HA-N!

(Atsuatsu Hokahoka)

Gohan wa sugoi yo Nai to komaru yo
Yappari gohan wa shushoku da ne
Nipponjin nara tonikaku PANshoku yori gohan desho

“Gohan wa okazu ja nai no ka yo!”
“A…Wasuretetaa”
“Koraa!!”

Gohan wa sugoi yo Nandemo au yo Hokahoka

(Atsuatsu Hokahoka Icchae Icchae)

Rice is amazing. It goes with anything. Warm, warm!
Ramen, udon, okonomiyaki and such and such.
It’s a dream collaboration,
Between carbohydrates and carbohydrates☆
(Hot, hot! Warm, warm!)

Rice is amazing. It’s a pain to not have any.
Instead rice will be the side dish.
For Kansai people of course it has to be okonomiyaki & rice.

But I’m not from Kansai.
(What!)

Rice is amazing. It goes with anything. Warm, warm!
Kimchi, natto, raw eggs and such and such.
White rice is a pure white canvas,
For an Infinite imagination.
(Hot, hot! Warm, warm!)

Rice is amazing. It’s a pain to not have any.
Of course rice is the staple food.
For Japanese people anyway, it should be rice instead of bread.

“Rice isn’t a side dish!”
“Ah…I kinda forgot~”
“Hey!!”

Rice is amazing. It goes with anything. Warm, warm!
Yakisoba, takoyaki, tonpeiyaki and such and such.
It’s a dream collaboration,
Between carbohydrates and carbohydrates☆
(Hot, hot! Warm, warm! Go, go!)

Rice is amazing. It’s a pain to not have any.
Instead rice will be the side dish.
For Kansai people of course it has to be okonomiyaki & rice.

    lol, when one gets down to it, the lyrics really doesn’t make much sense >.<

    can't wait for karaoke-ing~

  2. alucard13mm

  3. supnal

    @Aorii: I mean it’s a Yui song about food so yeah. I may want to sing it with you for karaoke. Really depends on how many people will risk embarrassment and sing. (I hope not too many people try as I have 3 songs myself that I want to do)

    @alucard13mm: That would make sense for Mio to be holding it, wouldn’t it?

    @supnal: I’ll be so sad when K-on finishes. I voted for Yui on most everything.
