If you are creative and innovative, anything can be realized easily. Even me myself, usually, I get the idea (of my project) and being creative when I’m in the toilet. As a proof, please feel free to listen to this song. I love this song pretty much not because of the singer, but because of the melody and it’s really simple and soft. This song is still  in the top 10 chart in Japan so far. Please enjoy!

(Translation)

About the time I was in 3rd grade
I lived with my grandmother
My parent’s house was next door but
I lived with my grandmother

Everyday I helped out
I even played gobang
But my grandmother said this to me
because I couldn’t clean the toilet

My goodness, there’s
a goddess at the toilet
that’s why if you clean the toilet
You can become beautiful like the goddess

From that day on
I started making the toilet shine
I’ll definitely become a beautiful woman
Every day I polished it

When we went out to go shopping
We both had roasted duck
My grandmother missed her new comedy show
and cried and blamed me

My goodness, there’s
a goddess at the toilet
that’s why if you clean the toilet
You can become beautiful like the goddess

I became an adult
and I bumped heads with grandma
I couldn’t make a family
and I had no place to stay

I didn’t return home on days off
I was out with my boyfriend
Both of us stopped playing
gobang and eating roasted duck

I wonder why people hurt others
and we lose things close to us
she was always by my side and I left her alone

It’s been two years since I left for Tokyo
grandma is in the hospital
She’s losing weight and got thin
I went to go see her

I said, “granny, I’m back!”
just like I used to
Even though we spoke a little bit
I said I’ll come back and left the room

The next morning grandma
quietly fell asleep
it was just as if
she was waiting for me to come back
Even though she raised me properly
Even though I could repay her back
Even though I wasn’t a good grandchild
She waited for me

My goodness, there’s
a goddess at the toilet
that’s why if you clean the toilet
You can become beautiful like the goddess

I had a dream to become
a wife in a good dispostion
today I’m going to
make the toilet shine alone

Grandma
Grandma
Thank you
Grandma
Thank you
from the bottom of my heart
