Hey guys, like the title stated- I am looking for the lyric translation of this song that matsumoto said to have "the roots of a comedian". It sound like all the comedian find it relatable so I would like to explore the song..

The song title is Sonnet of the Clown by Sada Masashi, it's from this Gaki episode: Music Memory, which is great by the way! Always nice to hear their backstory. :) I tried google translate but it still didn't make much sense..

Sonnet of a Clown


Laugh at me to make you happy
Laugh at me to make me happy

We go down the river
In a boat loaded with sadness
We go down the river
Going down the stream of time.

You have plenty of sadness
So much sadness you couldn't hold with your hands
If laughing at me makes you feel better
I will be your clown.

Laugh at me to make you happy
Laugh at me to make me happy

And you'll see that your friends are walking along with you
Along the stream of time.

We are mountain climbers
Who head for our own peak
With heavy burden,
without even taking a breath

You have plenty of sadness
So much sadness you couldn't hold with your little arms.
If laughing at me makes you feel better
I will be your clown.

Laugh at me to make you happy
Laugh at me to make me happy.

And the time will come soon
When we all chat and laugh together

Laugh at me to make you happy
Laugh at me to make me happy.
Thank you very much soudou :D
