New Kyary Pamyu Pamyu, “Tsukema tsukeru” with lyrics!

Everyone’s favorite Harajuku girl is at it again! きゃりーぱみゅぱみゅ, Kyary Pamyu Pamyu (star of my most popular posts ever) has released a new PV for her new single, which is due out January 11th.

Produced by Nakata Yasutaka of capsule and Perfume, among others, this new tune is pretty catchy and just about as nonsensical (both verbally and visually) as Kyary’s summer smash Pon Pon Pon.

The song (lyrics below) is all about putting on false eyelashes, and how they make the singer feel cute and confident. The video also features extensive eyelashes, as well as some pretty nutty other sights.

Apparently Kyary actually has a line of false eyelashes for sale, though I haven’t seen them at my local shops. Does that make this extremely meta, or extremely commercial? Perhaps both?

What do you think, is it as good as Pon Pon Pon? Is the song as catchy, the video as crazy? The production quality has skyrocketed since the last music video, but is the creative content up to snuff? I will say, I’m loving all the gifs showing up on tumblr. Hilarious!

Lyrics below the cut…

TSUKEMA TSUKERU | Romaji

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukete

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Kawaii no tsukema tsukeru

Iina iina sore iina

Pacchiri pacchiri sore iina

Iina iina sore iina

Kibun mo ue o muku

Dododododododododo

Tsukeru taipu no mahout dayo

Jishin o mi ni tsukete mieru sekai mo kawaru ka na

Onaji sora ga dou mieru ka wa kokoro mo kakugo shitai

…dakara…

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukete

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Kawaii no tsukema tsukeru

Dododododododododo

Samishii kao o shita chiisana otoko no ko

Henshin beruto o mi ni tsukete egao nikawaru ka na

Onna no ko ni mo aru tsukeru taipu no mahou dayo

Jishin o mi ni tsukete mieru sekai mo kawaru ka na

Onaji sora ga dou mieru ka wa kokoro mo kakugo shitai

…dakara…

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukete

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukeru no

Pacchiri pacchiri omeme no ko

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukete

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Kawaii no tsukema tsukeru

Iina iina sore iina

Iina iina sore iina

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukete

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukeru no

Pacchiri pacchiri omeme no ko

Pachi pachi tsukema tsukete

Tsuke ma tsuke ma tsuke ma tsukeru

Kawaii no tsukema tsukeru

つけまつける — Translation from Hanjadream

Putting, putting, putting on my falsies
The false eyelashes that make me blink
Putting, putting, putting on my falsies
My cute false eyelashes

Wouldn’t it be nice, nice, nice
To have big pretty eyes, oh it’d be nice
Wouldn’t it be nice, nice, nice
My mood is looking up!

It’s the magic in a type of eyelash
My confidence changes, the way I see the world changes
I wonder if I’ll still see the same sky, I prepare myself
So…

I put, put, put on my falsies
The false eyelashes that make me blink
Putting, putting, putting on my falsies
My cute false eyelashes

A sad face appears on a little boy
I wonder using my transformation belt will change his expression
It’s a woman’s magic in a type of eyelash
My confidence changes, the way I see the world changes
I wonder if I’ll still see the same sky, I prepare myself
So…

Putting, putting, putting on my falsies
The false eyelashes that make me blink
Putting, putting, putting on my falsies
My cute false eyelashes

Wouldn’t it be nice, nice, nice
To have big pretty eyes, oh it’d be nice
Wouldn’t it be nice, nice, nice
My mood is looking up!

    Terrific entry!

  3. Took too long to get to the part where she’s actually cute, but at least this one didn’t have a fat old lady dancing around.

    Also, tits shouldn’t have eyelashes. I don’t care who you are. Just, no.

  4. G.J. says:

    I like this video better than Ponponpon, and it’s just as catchy. And I did keep waiting for her boobs to blink. I was kind of sad when they didn’t. Maybe next vid. :P

  5. Joe Singer says:

    Any idea what the book cover says?

  6. Slip says:

    Wow! I loved the video. The lions were mesmerizing. I want to be her for Halloween. I loved the skirt made out of…what is it made out of? It looks like chip bags. And the giant bow would be fun to wear.

    Yeah.. The lyrics are wrong. It’s not “kokoro mo kakugo shitai”. It’s “kokoro no kakudoshidai”. I don’t know what “kakugo” means, but “shitai” definitely means “corpse”. :)

    I LOVED this song…until I read the lyrics. So am I the only one who has an issue with a JAPANESE girl singing about having BIG EYES? Her confidence will change once she has fake eyelashes on. Considering many Asian women (and men) get eyelid surgery and its so darn prevalent in their entertainment industry….I’m so saddened and shocked that I see to be the only person who questions this songs lyrics. Oh well. I know many of you might hate me, and I am sorry I mean no offense. However seeing Asian girls/women who feel like theres something wrong with their eyes OR dare I come out and say it? Conditioning of a culture via colonialist views, they way the white people have conditioned others into thinking some how they are less than attractive if they aren’t Caucasian. Sad.

    • Kurobana says:

      I felt the same way reading the lyrics! But at the same time there’s a simple pleasure you get from putting on makeup.. I guess you could call it vanity, or self-appreciation, depending on how you view it. ;)
