The meow song – Nekomeshi

I recently came across a Japanese song which is too cute for words. The song imitates a cat talking to its owner. Not only is the song extremely catchy, a noble stranger has taken it upon him- or herself to illustrate the song with beautiful photos on YouTube. Check out the result:

The repeated ‘nya-nya’ means ‘meow’ in Japanese. The cat is talking about what it wants to eat for lunch and dinner, and it is urging its master to not work too much. Click here to read a translation of the complete lyrics.

This song appears on a single with music from the anime ‘Arakawa Under the Bridge’. The singer is Etsuko Yakushimaru.

I don’t know about you, but I’ll be singing nya – nya nya – nya for the rest of the day.
