Lyrics Translation: 1. U-sa-gi o-i-shi, ka-no ya-ma, Ko-bu-na tsu ri-shi, ka-no ka-wa. Yu-me wa i-ma mo me-gu-ri- te. Wa-su-re-ga ta-ki fu-ru sa-to. (1. I hunted rabbits on that mountain; I fished for minnows in that stream. I still dream of my childhood days; how I miss my old country home!) 2. I-ka-ni i-ma-su, chi-chi, ha-ha, Tsu-tsu ga na-shi-ya, to-mo ga-ki. A-me ni ka-ze ni tsu-ke-te-mo. O mo-i i-zu-ru fu-ru sa-to. 2. Mama, Papa, are you well? And my friends? When the rain falls and the wind blows, I recall my happy childhood and mountain home. 3. Ko-ko ro za-shi-’o, ha-ta shi-te, I-tsu no hi-ni-ka, ka-e-ra-n. Ya-ma wa a-o ki, fu-ru sa-to, Mi-zu wa ki-yo-ki, fu-ru sa-to. (3. Someday, when I have done all I set out to do, I will return to my home. The mountains of my home are lush and green; the mountain brook streams pure and clear back in my old country home.)

Which method of viewing music should I use?

Score Exchange has two methods to display previews of music: seView which uses regular html and javascipt and the Scorch plug-in from Avid which needs to be downloaded and installed onto your computer. Both have advantages and disadvantages:

seView

seView, is the most compatible option. You should be able to view music on all modern web browsers including most mobile devices. Even if your device does not support javascript you should still be able to preview at least page one of the music.

You do not need to install any additional software to use seView.

Scorch

Scorch is a free plug-in from Avid for displaying and printing music. It can also play the music that you're seeing. As modern web browsers are updated, Scorch is no longer compatible with many browsers. Scorch has never been compatible with mobile devices and some web browsers on Mac computers.

If your web browser does not install Scorch automatically, you can click here to download and install scorch manually.
