Po japońsku:

てるてるぼうず、てるぼうず
明日天気にしておくれ

いつかの夢の空のように

晴れたら金の鈴あげよ

てるてるぼうず、てるぼうず

明日天気にしておくれ

私の願いを聞いたなら

甘いお酒をたんと飲ましょ

てるてるぼうず、てるぼうず

明日天気にしておくれ

もしも曇って泣いてたら

そなたの首をちょんと切る

In English:

Teru teru bōzu, teru bōzu
Give us a sunny day tomorrow
Just like the sky of the day
If the sun is over, I’ll give you a golden bell
Teru teru bōzu, teru bōzu
Give us a sunny day tomorrow
If you meet my request
We’ll drink a lot of rice wine
Teru teru bōzu, teru bōzu
Give us a sunny day tomorrow
But if there are clouds and you cry
Then I’ll turn your head around.
