from the MMF Songbook


Sakura, Sakura is a traditional Japanese folk song depicting spring, the season of the cherry blossom.

The pentatonic (five-note) scale that is most familiar to us is derived from steps 1, 2, 3, 5 and 6 of the major scale. Melodies like Oh, Susanna and Weevily Wheat are based on this scale. Sakura, Sakura is based on a distinctive pentatonic scale that includes half steps between some of the notes.


English Lyrics for 'Sakura, Sakura'

Sakura, Sakura, blossoms waving everywhere.
Clouds of glory fill the sky.
Mist of beauty in the air,
lovely colors floating by.
Sakura, Sakura,
Let all come singing.

Sakura, Sakura,
Blossoms waving in the breeze.
Yoshina, the cherry land,
Tatsuta, the maple trees,
Karasaki, pine tree grand,
Sakura, Sakura,
let all come singing.
