Do-Dai (Rem@ster-B)

Romaji Lyrics English Translation

Honjitsu wa minna ni watashi no totteoki no
Koibana wo kikasete agechau yo

Totsuzen kokurarechatta zo! Do shiyo?!
Bus orite aruitetara ushiro kara ikinari
Totsuzen na situation do shiyo?!
Are wa minna ga akogare no prince jan!

Konna koto unbelievable da yo!
Miracle hassei! Keikou to taisaku
Tomodachi ni kikubeshi!
“Watashi no ii toko nobe yo!”

Henshin tatta no san-ken shika nai
Tonikaku ii kara nandemo dashite!
“Tokuchou nai no ga tokuchou” tte iu na!

Thinking time itsumo no san-bai
Seikaku looks moromoro sono ta
Bunseki kanryou! Sate sate…
Yokei kongarakatta yo…

Nani ga dame de, nani ga tokui ka tte
Hontou wa jibun ga ichiban shitterun da yo ne
Un. Sou ne. Sou ka mo shirenai wa ne…

Demo konna chance nigasanai mon!
Watashi no miryoku zenbu kakiatsumete
Nantoka surubeshi!
“Date shitekuremasu ka?”

Kondo no doyoubi! Mikka shika nai!
Tonikaku diet, muri wa shouchi de
Gloss wo nutte, ahiru no renshuu

Nail no oteire itsumo no san-bai
Colorcon mascara moromoro sono ta
Soubi wa kanpeki! Oyasumi!
Zenzen nemuren…

Honban toujitsu! Atafuta shimakuri!
Junbi bantan! …datta hazu na no ni…
Kami wa gushagusha, heel mo oreta

Herohero princess genba touchaku
Prince miru nari namidame dakedo
Itsumo no kimi demo yokatta tte
Nadenade shitekureta yo

Koibana o-wa-ri!

Today, I’d like to tell you all about
my very special love story…

This guy just confessed to me! What do I do?!
I was getting off the bus, and I hear this voice!
I wasn’t ready for this situation, what do I do?!
I mean, he’s like the prince of the entire school!

This is all so unbelievable!
It’s like a miracle! Okay, gonna need some help…
I’d better ask my friends!
“Tell me what my best traits are!”

I’m gonna need more than three answers, guys!
Come on, you’ve gotta give me something here!
And no, not having any real traits is not a good trait!

I’m thinking things over three times longer than usual
My personality, my looks, and all that stuff
Alright, the results are in! And they are…
I’m more confused than when I started!

But you know, what your good and bad traits are
is really something only you can answer, right?
Yeah… you’re right. That’s very true, actually.

But I’m not gonna let this chance just slip away!
Time to pull out all my charms,
And just go for it!
“Will you go on a date with me?”

We’re going out this Saturday?! I’ve only got 3 days!
This calls for a crash diet, no holds barred!
Gotta dig out my lip gloss, and practice my pouty lips!

My nails are taking three times longer than usual
Can’t forget my contacts, mascara, and all that stuff
Alright, I’m good to go! Good night!
Oh, I just can’t sleep!

It’s the big day! Oh god, this is such a mess!
I was all ready! Or so I’d thought…
But my hair’s a mess, and I broke one of my heels!

So the princess of the tale arrives looking dreary
But when she looks at her prince through teary eyes
He says “You’re great just the way you are”
And slowly strokes my hair!

And thus ends our love story!

Hooray, Do-Dai! I really like this song. It’s a very cute little story, and the rem@ster-B is a really nice adaptation of it. The original version is super upbeat and full of zany interjections, whereas this version strips out anything frivolous and renders it into a genuine little ballad that’s actually quite touching, I feel. The instrumentation is great, and Hibiki can handle the naturally zany lyrics while Chihaya’s great at the more serious parts. It’s a good combination!

A quick note about the name of the song: The rem@ster-B actually strips out one of the lines the song is named after, which makes the entire thing quite confusing. Do-Dai is short for “Doshiyo —> Daiseikou”, where Doshiyo is the “What do I do?!” that’s asked so much at the beginning of the song, and Daiseikou literally means “big success” (the full line they stripped out I would probably translate as “All’s well that ends well”, but I digress). Anyway it’s basically meant to show the path through the song of going from “HALP HOW I ROMANCE” to a happy successful love story, which is, you know. Cute.
