[Lyrics] K-ON!! Insert song – U&I [HO-KAGO TEA TIME]


U&I is from episode 17 of K-ON second season. Yui writes it to Ui when she realizes how important she is to her. The lyrics are simple and at times a little cheesy but it does a great job of conveying Yui’s honest feelings. It’s definitely one of my favorite songs from the series thus far. Translation and such below:


Kimi ga inai to nani mo dekinai yo
Kimi no gohan ga tabetai yo
Moshi kimi ga kaette kitara
Tobikkiri no egao de dakitsuku yo

Kimi ga inai to ayamarenai yo
Kimi no koe ga kikitai yo
Kimi no egao ga mirereba sore dake de ii n da yo

Kimi ga soba ni iru dake de itsumo yuuki moratteta
Itsumade demo issho ni itai
Kono kimochi wo tsutaetai yo

Hare no hi ni mo ame no hi mo
Kimi wa soba ni ite kureta
Me wo tojireba kimi no egao kagayaiteru

Kimi ga inai to nani mo wakaranai yo
Satou to shouyu wa doko dakke?
Moshi kimi ga kaette kitara
Bikkuri saseyou to omotta no ni na

Kimi ni tsuitsui amaechau yo
Kimi ga yasashisugiru kara
Kimi ni moratte bakari de nani mo ageraretenai yo

Kimi ga soba ni iru koto wo atarimae ni omotteta
Konna hibi ga zutto zutto
Tsudzuku n da to omotteta yo

Gomen ima wa kidzuita yo
Atarimae ja nai koto ni

Mazu wa kimi ni tsutaenakucha
“Arigatou” wo

Kimi no mune ni todoku kana? Ima wa jishin nai keredo
Warawanaide dou ka kiite
Omoi wo uta ni kometa kara

Arittake no “arigatou”
Uta ni nosete todoketai
Kono kimochi wa zutto zutto wasurenai yo

Omoi yo Todoke

English Translation

When you’re not around I can’t do anything.
I want to eat your food.
When you come back,
I’ll cling to you with a super smile.

When you’re not around I can’t apologize.
I want to hear your voice.
Being able to see your smile is all I need.

You always gave me courage just by being by my side.
I want to be together forever.
I want to tell you these feelings.

Whether rain or shine,
You stayed by my side.
If I close my eyes I see your radiant smile.

When you’re not around I don’t understand anything.
Where’s the sugar and soy sauce?
When you come back,
I thought I’d surprise you and yet…

Unconsciously I act spoiled towards you,
Since you’re too kind.
I receive so much from you without being able to give back.

Obviously I thought about how you stayed by my side.
I thought that such days,
Would continue forever and ever.

I’m sorry; I’ve only just realized it now.
It’s something that’s not so obvious.

First I’ll start by telling you,

I wonder has it reached your heart? I don’t have any confidence right now but,
Don’t laugh and just listen,
Because I put my thoughts into a song.

I want to place all my “Thanks”
Into a song and send it to you.
I will never ever forget these feelings.

My thoughts, reach!

    Fuck yes, I’ve been waiting for this.

    Thanks, Honya. Btw, I think you haven’t translated No Thank You. Please work on it.

  2. Raigeki

    Finally. Thanks a lot..

  3. dro

    This is the one song that chokes me up because it reminds me of the touching part where Ui fell sick and Yui had to take care of her. T_T

  4. Honya

    @Mirage: Thanks for the reminder. I’ve had NO Thank You in my drafts for a while but was kinda busy when it came out so I never did do the final version. I’ll try to get it out when I can.

    @Raigeki: No problem.

    @dro: I really liked that episode. Yui and Ui are just a wonderful pair of sisters.

  26. lifeofpettysin

    I’ll cling to you with a super smile.

    The actual translation would be “I’ll greet you with a great big smile”, good job on the rest, but you got a little litteral which is okay when trying to translate a song from kanji to english :3

    1. Honya

      I understand what you mean but I’ll keep it as it is since that’s how I do things. Thanks for the advice though.
