Hataraku Neko / 働くネコ

Hataraku Neko / 働くネコ: “Working Cat”

hataraku / 働く
“to work” (at a job)
neko / ネコ
猫, “cat”

If you’re lucky enough to have a copy of the special 3CD limited edition of “Oku Hanako BEST -My Letters-” (or if you’re really lucky, the Hanako Box), then you would have heard this song on the third disc (“unreleased songs”).

Back in 2007, Oku Hanako was hired to provide the music for the renzoku called Yukipon no Oshigoto / ユキポンのお仕事 (“Yukipon’s Occupation”; English title “Working Cat a Go! Go!”. Official site[jp]). Hataraku Neko is the show’s theme song.

Hataraku Neko is… odd. Odd, but fun. I suppose the same could be said about the show.

The beginning is the clip used to introduce each episode. I’ll be posting something about Yukipon no Oshigoto soon, so watch for it!


Lyrics

Roumaji

Hataraku hataraku neko dakedo nan demo dekiru yo neko dakedo
Sakana ga daisuki neko dakara neru no ga daisuki neko dakara

Ningen no kai neko dakara tte esa ga moraeru to wa kagiranai
Asemizu nagashite hataraite taberu gohan wa oishii na

Gorone ga shuumi to shite kita kedo
Onaka ga suitecha nere mo shinai

Hataraku hataraku neko dakedo nan demo dekiru yo neko dakedo
Sakana ga daisuki neru no ga daisuki samui no dake wa taerarenai
Hataraku hataraku neko dakedo hitomakase nante mou yameta
Morau no mattecha hi ga kureru
Kyou wo ikiru tame hataraki ni yuku yo

Japanese

働く 働くネコだけど 何でも出来るよ ネコだけど
魚が大好きネコだから 寝るのが大好き ネコだから

人間の飼いネコだからって 餌がもらえるとは限らない
汗水流して働いて 食べる御飯は美味しいな

ゴロ寝が趣味としてきたけど
お腹がすいてちゃ 寝れもしない

働く 働くネコだけど 何でも出来るよ ネコだけど
魚が大好き 寝るの大好き 寒いのだけは耐えられない
働く 働くネコだけど 人任せなんて もうやめた
貰うの待ってちゃ 日が暮れる
今日を生きるため 働きに行くよ
