Hiding what I can

Who decided my worth?

(RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA)
(RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA)
(RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA)
(RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA RUNBA)

samayou sugata wa sanagara RUNBA
(yoromeku sugata mo mechakucha RUNBA)
furatsukinagara mo ikitei RUNBA
(hatakara mirya DANSU ni mie RUNBA)
yokereba issho ni odorimasen ka?
(ie ie anata ja odoremasen wa)
hitori ja munashii odoro yo RUNBA
(ototoi kiyagare hitori de RUNBA)

My wandering figure is a total rumba
(Your staggering figure is also a senseless rumba)
Even while I’m tottering, I’m living rumba
(If I look at you from the side, it seems like a dance rumba)
If you’d like, shall we dance together?
(No, no, I can’t dance with you)
Dance alone in vain, rumba
(Don’t ever come again, go rumba alone)

ore no nedan wo dare ga kimeta?
tora ya hyou ga bokura no kokoro ni mo
(kemono-tachi ga hisomukoto shiranai kara yatsura)
yasui ne wo tsukeyagatte
tokihanatsu ze!

saa, nigemadoe sono suki ni
odoro yo boku-tachi wa RUNBA
hohoemi karoyaka ni kimi to
sono hi wa kuru no ka
wakaranakute

Who decided my worth?
Tigers and leopards are in our hearts, too
(Because they don’t know that the beasts are lurking, they-)
Stick a cheap price on me
And let me go!C’mon, run around trying to escape during that gap
Dance, for we are a rumba
To have a light smile with you-
I don’t know
When that day will come

shinya no tsuuhan rekucha RUNBA
(miru dake odoreru anata mo RUNBA)
otakai’ndeshou ne o ikura RUNBA?
(setto de uru narao nebiki RUNBA)
sorenara boku nado setto nidou ja?
(ie ie anata to setto wa iya ja)
make tarakuyashii jinsei RUNBA
(chi dan da fume fume jinsei RUNBA)

A late-night mail order lecture rumba
(You, who can dance just by watching, is also a rumba)
Isn’t that expensive? How much is it, rumba?
(If sold in a set, there’s a discount rumba)
If so, how about having us in a set?
(No, no, I don’t want to be in a set with you)
If I lose, it’s a frustrating life rumba
(A stamping and stomping on the ground life, rumba)

ore no nedan wo dare ga kimeta?
hoshi ya hana ga bokura no kokoro ni mo
(kagayai teirukoto wo shiranai kara yatsura)
yasui ne wo tsukeyagatte taka wo kukutta na
(kiba ya tsume wo togu koto wo shiranai kara yatsura)
hakakune wo tsukeyagatte
kura itsuke!

Who decided my worth?
Stars and flowers are in our hearts, too
(Because they don’t know that you’re shining, they-)
Stuck a cheap price on me and underrated me
(Because they don’t know that you whet your fangs and claws, they-)
Stick a special price on me
And bite away at me!

saa, nigemadoe sono geki ni
odoro yo hontou no RUNBA
hohoemi karoyaka ni kimi to
sono hi ga kuru no wo
(shinjite RUNBA)

C’mon, run around trying to escape during that gap
Dance the real rumba
To have a light smile with you-
That day will come
(I believe in it rumba)

hito ni nedan ga aru no nara
sore wa dare ga kimeru no ka?
boku mo PURAISU wo kimeyou ka?
kimi no kachi sae mo
kime kanete
wakaranakute

If there’s worth in people
Then who decides that?
Shall I decide on a price, too?
I’m unable to even
Decide your value
I don’t know what it is
