    -------------------------------
    This is a serious drama about the schooltime friendship and the nostalgy we feel for it later in our lives.
    ..no.. seriously.


    I originaly meant to pair the song with Sexy Commando Masaru-kun. I'm glad I didn't start making this one before I had seen Cromartie. Compared to original idea (which would have created a complete comedy-AMV) I soon realized that with Cromartie I could also bring up the serious side of the song. Original music video by Lapinlahden Linnut/Tapio Liinoja also had school bullying as a theme. Now with Cromartie High School full of bad asses and the serious (and still not so serious) mood and style of the anime opened up a chance for quite interesting combination. I'm glad I managed to make this one pretty close to the image/idea I had.

    ..and I won't be doing any lip sync AMVs for long time. Damn I hate doing those.. but this concept really needed lip sync so.. *shrug*


    This was a very hard one to translate. Lots of double meanings and wordplays. Most important one to know is that Onni means "luck" or "happiness". Part "Onni täällä vaihtelee" could also be translated as "Onni is switching gears". Same thing with "Näin elämässä vaihdetaan", which could also be "This is how you switch gears in life". Go figure...

    Lyrics/Translations:

    Meitä oli kaksi, Aimo ja minä
    Koulussa istuttiin vierekkäin
    Autokuski Onni oli Aimon isä
    Onni vei Aimoa eteenpäin

    There were two of us, Aimo and me
    At the school we sat side by side
    Driver Onni was Aimo's father
    Onni drove Aimo forward

    Aimo ei osannut koulussa mitään
    Mutta pyörää ajoi vaikka väärinpäin
    Tapahtui tunnilla sitä tai tätä
    Onni vei Aimoa eteenpäin

    Aimo didn't do anything right at school
    But he could even cycle backwards
    Even if this or that happened during class
    Onni drove Aimo forward

    Opettaja aamuisin vedätti virren
    Aurinko paistoi harmooniin
    Aimo sai ylleen ilon pilven
    Etupenkistä häntä seurattiin
    Ja laulettiin

    Teacher lead a hymn every morning
    Sun shone over the harmonium
    Aimo received a cloud of happiness above him
    He was followed even from the front seats
    and we sang...

    Onni täällä vaihtelee
    Taivaan isä suojelee
    Aimon käsi liikkui ja heilui
    Ei tule virsi tästä enää rankemmaksi

    Luck always changes here
    the Heavenly Father protects
    Aimo's hand moved all around
    No hymn can get any harder than this

    Meitä oli kaksi, Aimo ja minä
    Isot pojat takana vierekkäin
    Autokuski Onni oli Aimon isä
    Paljon ymmärsin vasta jälkeenpäin

    There were two of us, Aimo and me
    Big boys in the back side by side
    Driver Onni was Aimo's father
    Much of it I understood afterwards

    Aimo sai kauniin vaimon ja pojan
    Pulpetista siirtyi ratin taa
    Pojalleen opetti saman etunojan
    Näin elämässä vaihdetaan

    Aimo got beautiful wife and a son
    From behind the desk he moved behind the wheel
    He tought the same front support position to his son
    This is how you change in life

    Opettaja aamuisin vedätti virren
    Aurinko paistoi harmooniin
    Aimo sai ylleen ilon pilven
    Etupenkistä häntä seurattiin
    Ja laulettiin

    Teacher lead a hymn every morning
    Sun shone over the harmonium
    Aimo received a cloud of happiness above him
    He was followed even from the front seats
    and we sang...

    Onni täällä vaihtelee
    Taivaan isä suojelee
    Aimon käsi liikkui ja heilui
    Ei tule virsi tästä enää rankemmaksi

    Luck always changes here
    the Heavenly Father protects
    Aimo's hand moved all around
    No hymn can get any harder than this
