skrhgh,

That song is so weird. Sorry it took so long. here are the lyrics

HB, You are an HB
You a bastard pencil, HB
You're a perverted bastard, HB

2B, you are a 2b
Of all the pencils, 2B (changed order for english)
You're the big brother, 2B

The eraser has come!
It will erase us all!
But we have lead!
Even if we break, we still have lead!
Even if we are erased, we don't disapear!

2H you are a 2H
You're a hard bastard, 2H
You're 2 times the pervert, 2H

HB 2B 2H

The eraser has come!
It will erase us all!
But we have lead!
Even if we break, we still have lead!
Even if we are erased, we don't disapear!

HB, You are an HB
You a bastard pencil, HB
You're a perverted bastard, HB

Green Color Pencil.
Wrote "I Love you" with a red pencil.

HB 2B 2H

lol i can't believe you actually translated it! i can find only one word for this: 面白い! good job. it's a shame how so many delightful puns get lost in translation, though. "perveted" just doesn't work on the same level as "エッチな" in a song about pencils. my city has an annual japan festival, which is coming up in a few weeks. i'm tempted to enter the amateur talent contest armed with my guitar and an 忌野清志郎 tune, but i'm just not sure which song. how do you think this one would go over? ;)

Yeah, a lot always gets lost in language jokes... Or just in songs in general. *grin* My translation of B-Dash was particularly horrible.. It just doesn't work well.

As for the contest, do you know hanawa or guitar samurai? You should totally do a parody of them! That would rock the house!

Thanks for the translation. But for what exactly is this keychain that I have in my possession. I'm guessing it's a schedule for a temple.

すげぇ is what I would use.. Although I don't think he said "sweet" in that episode.

wah no one replied to my thread~

*kneels before harisenbon* please bequeath your eternal wisdom unto me~

i have cross referenced all of my katakana/hiragana websites and dictionaries and cannot find the 2nd character in the image below T_T~ i don't know what it is.. but i see it so much.. and o wise one, can you link me to a site where they show the informal style of writing characters so i do not meet this problem again?

thanki.. i need the phonetic / syllabic / sound expression for the second character in the image below.. first chara is "a".. i don't know what second one is...

thank you!!!

that image is a little hard to read, but i think it says "アーチン," right? the "ー" symbol is the katakana symbol for an elongated vowel. so, "アーチン" is like "アアチン." get it? although it's primarily a katakana symbol, you'll sometimes see it used with hiragana in informal writing.
