Discussion in the Ask the Commish forum
Hiroshima Carps Fighting Song?
I am interested in the words (English prefered but Japanese OK) to the Hiroshima Carps fighting song. If anyone could help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks,

This is all I could find:

Hiroshima Carp Ouenka "Sore ike caapu (wakaki koi-tachi)"
Kaapu kaapu kaapu Hiroshima, Hiroshima Kaapu
Sora wo oyoge to, ten mo mata mune wo hiraku
Kyou no kono toki wo, tashika ni tatakai
Haruka ni takaku, haruka ni takaku,
Eikou no hata wo tate yo
Kaapu kaapu kaapu Hiroshima, Hiroshima Kaapu


Which, in English, translates thusly (more or less):
Hiroshima Carp Cheer Song "Go for it, Carp (Young Carp)"
Carp, Carp, Carp Hiroshima, Hiroshima Carp
If you fly to the sky heaven will open it's breast
Certainly fighting at this time today
Far and high, far and high
Raise the flag of glory
Carp, Carp, Carp Hiroshima, Hiroshima Carp

I think Whiting's "You Gotta Have Wa" has a better translation, but my copy's in Japan right now.

Are you the same Rannohana from the Sumo Mailing List?

Thanks for the info and yes I am from the Sumo Mailing List. I don't recognize your initials. Do you participate in the various sumo games and if so what is your shikona?

It is I, the Mighty Hananotaka. The initials are just a habit brought over from another baseball BBS I participated in.

[Reviving old thread.]

(All search engines refer to this thread for the Carp fight song.)

There is a YouTube video of the Carp Fight Song being played on a piano, which makes it easier to learn.

Thanks for putting that video together and sharing it with us, Long-san.
