Come and see the cherry blossoms. How their beauty seems to fill the air?

Floating here, and floating there, cherry petals falling everywhere.

Spring has come and days are fair. Won’t you come along with me?

Come and see the cherry bloom. (piano interlude)

Sa-ku-ra, sa-ku-ra! Ya-yo- i no so ra wa, mi-wa-ta-su ka-gi-ri.

Come now, let’s look and see.
