Please enjoy a Japanese original song "くちなしの花 (Kuchinashi no Hana)", meaning "The Flower of Gardenia", sung by Teresa Teng in duet with 石原裕次郎 (Ishihara Yujiro). 遠藤実 (Endou Minoru) composed, 薗広昭 (Sono Hiroaki) arranged the song. 水木かおる (Mizuki Kaoru) wrote the lyrics.

I created this duet song by combining two songs sung separately by these great singers .

The following are the Japanese lyrics, with my English translation.

いまでは 指輪も まわるほど
Imadewa yubiwa mo mawaru hodo
(To such an extent that the finger ring is now loose,)

やせて やつれた おまえの うわさ
Yasete yatsureta omae no uwasa
(you are now so emaciated, they say)

くちなしの 花の 花の かおりが
Kuchinashi no hana no hana no kaori ga
(The fragrance of gardenia flower)

旅路の はてまで ついてくる
Tabiji no hate made tsuite kuru
(follows me to the end of my journey)

くちなしの 白い花 おまえの ような  花だった
Kuchinashi no shiroi hana omae no youna hana datta
(That white gardenia flower was just like you)


わがまま いっては 困らせた
Wagamama ittewa komaraseta 
(You annoyed me with indulgence,)

子どもみたいな あの日の おまえ
Kodomo mitaina anohi no omae
(just like a difficult child, on that day)

くちなしの 雨の 雨の別れが
Kuchinashi no ame no ame no wakare ga 
(The parting in the rain by the gardenia flower)

いまでも 心を しめつける
Imademo kokoro wo shimetsukeru
(still aches my heart)

くちなしの 白い花 おまえのような 花だった
Kuchinashi no shiroi hana omae no youna hana datta
(That white gardenia flower was just like you)


小さな 幸せ それさえも
Chiisana shiawase soresae mo
(Even my small happiness,)

捨ててしまった 自分の手から
Sutete shimatta jibun no te kara
(I have thrown away from my hands)

くちなしの 花を 花を 見るたび
Kuchinashi no hana wo hana wo miru tabi 
(Whenever I look at the gardenia flower,)

淋しい 笑顔が また 浮かぶ
Samishii egao ga mata ukabu
(this reminds me of your sad smile)

くちなしの 白い花 おまえのような 花だった
Kuchinashi no shiroi hana omae no youna hana datta
(That white gardenia flower was just like you)
