A #1 hit in 1963. ""Ue o Muite Arukou"- "(I) Will Walk Looking Up") is a Japanese-language song that was performed by Japanese crooner Kyu Sakamoto, and written by lyricist Rokusuke Ei and composer Hachidai Nakamura.
Taste of Honey did their English song to the music in 1981.
Their English-language lyrics are not a translation of the original Japanese lyrics, but instead a completely different set of lyrics arranged to the same basic melody.

Ue o Muite Arukou I Look Up as I Walk

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore nai you ni
Omoidasu haru no hi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Ue o muite arukou
Nijinda hoshi o kazoete
Omoidasu natsu no hi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Shiawase wa kumo no ue ni
Shiawase wa sora no ue ni

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore nai you ni
Nakinagara aruku
Hitoribotchi no yoru
(whistling)

Omoidasu aki no hi
Hitoribotchi no yoru

Kanashimi wa hoshi no kage ni
Kanashimi wa tsuki no kage ni

Ue o muite arukou
Namida ga kobore nai you ni
Nakinagara aruku
Hitoribotchi no yoru
(whistling)

I Look Up As Walk

Give it a listen to.

I look up as I walk
So that the tears won't fall
Remembering those those spring days
But I am all alone tonight

I look up as I walk
Counting the stars with tearful eyes
Remembering those those summer days
But I am all alone tonight

Happiness lies beyond the clouds
Happiness lies up above the sky

I look up as I walk
So that the tears won't fall
Though the tears well up as I walk
For tonight I'm all alone
(whistling)

Remembering those those autumn days
But I am all alone tonight

Sadness lies in the shadow of the stars
Sadness lurks in the shadow of the moon

I look up as I walk
So that the tears won't fall
Though the tears well up as I walk
For tonight I'm all alone
(whistling)

It reached number one in the United States Billboard Hot 100 in June 1963. He was also the first Asian singer to have a number one song on the Billboard Hot 100.

Not a good day..... NOBODY talks crap about My Puddin'.......don't come to my door asshole!!

Ah Jay,

I haven't heard this song since I was 17 in Lawton, Oklahoma. I was with a friend who had a pond with fish in his backyard and his speakers were in the trees and he was playing this song. The memories are in my flesh. So glad to find this. Might give it a try with you, but can't whistle as good Many hugs, Carlie xo

Looking up, never knew he died in a plane crash
