"Sukiyaki" The lyrics tell the story of a man who looks up and whistles while he is walking so that his tears will not fall. The verses of the song describe his memories and feelings. Rokusuke Ei wrote this song while coming back from a protest against the Treaty of Mutual Cooperation and Security between the United States and Japan and feeling dejected about the failure of the protest movement, but the lyrics were rendered purposefully generic so that they might refer to any lost love. The English-language lyrics of the version recorded by A Taste of Honey are not a translation of the original Japanese lyrics, but instead a completely different set of lyrics arranged to the same basic melody. original was done by Kyu Sakamoto B-side "Anoko No Namaewa Nantenkana" 1961 (Japan) then in 1963 (US, UK) Anata no komento o arigat?gozaimashita :O) " thank you for your comments" :O)
