Break
Kero Kero Bonito Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I know it seems kinda tough
But really it's easy enough
For us to slow down the pace
So we can all go take a break
It's like there's not much better than nothing at all
And that's especially true when there's something to do

Me ni mai yo
Kurakura sekai ah kaki nuki
Dzudema watashi wa daydream
Yumi meteru
Look out the window madonoso to
Watching the world go by, goodbye!

Minai doko ka imu ka teru
Domo kami ga
Dancing in the wind
Ko yu doki ni omō n ga
Ikite to hontoni yo kata
Syer washi chi bu ni nari unda
Koro de ike ga suru nda
I've got a smile on my face
'Cause now I'm taking a break

Nani mo shi ny
Kono chi kan
Ma t yu kono chi kan
Desu ni kurai ikita kete
Let's slow down

I know it's seems kinda tough
But really it's easy enough
For us to slow down the pace
So we can all go take a break
It's like there's not much better than nothing at all
And that's especially true when there is something to do

Just move very slowly to the beat
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)
Now get down and put up your feet
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)
If you like to lounge, relax or flop
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)
Doesn't really matter when you're doing squat
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)

Sora awu miage iu n ma n-getsu
Hoshite go n'na ne keirena nda
Ko yu doki ni omō nda
Iki deru te fushi chi
Life is a race, that's what they say
So time out and look around
Tachidomaru to ni ie tsukuru
I see it now
Take a break!

Hey, you've reached Gus and Jamie from KKB
We're recording right now so leave your message after the beep

Yo, Gus and Jamie, it's Sarah
Just to let you know that I don't wanna do anything today
So I'll see ya later, bye!

I know it seems kinda tough
But really it's easy enough
For us to slow down the pace
So we can all go take a break
It's like there's not much better than nothing at all
And that's especially true when there is something to do

Just move very slowly to the beat
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)
Now get down and put up your feet
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)
If you like to lounge, relax or flop
(Ayo, ay ay yo oh)




Doesn't really matter when you're doing squat
(Ayo, ayo)

Overall Meaning

The lyrics of "Break" by Kero Kero Bonito appear to be focused on the idea of taking a break from the stresses of daily life. The opening lines of the song acknowledge that it may seem difficult to take a break, but it is easy enough to slow down the pace and take a breath. The lyrics suggest that sometimes it's good to do nothing at all and that taking a break can be an excellent way to recharge.


The Japanese language that appears throughout the song contributes to the song's overall meaning. Some of the lines translate to phrases such as "watching the world go by" and "life is a race." These phrases add further context to the song's message about slowing down and taking a moment to appreciate the world around us.


The upbeat tempo and catchy melody provide a sense of joy and exuberance to the lyrics. The lyrics encourage people to move very slowly to the beat and get down, put up their feet, or even just do nothing at all. Ultimately, the song's message seems to be that taking a break from the stress of daily life is essential and that anyone can do it if they simply slow down and take a breath.
