lol.. I know it's stated that PONPON has no meaning, but I find that every line has a meaning. I felt like I had to do this. I guess it's up to you to find out what it's all about...

VERSE 1

と [to] - Particle meaning 'and'
ポン [PON] - Sound of pounding

Everyday, with you. Pound...

毎 a/d

二 [futa] - Two

アァ 沈んでく夕日を
アァ [AA] - Aah!!
沈んでく [shindeku] - (shizumu) sinking [emotionally]

I can't feel depressed like this

The smell of the rain...

予感穴だらけの
予 [yo] - Beforehand
感 [kan] - Feeling
穴だらけの [anadarake no] - Because of the kanji, it would mean 'many holes' but in this context means f**k

頑張ってる [ganbatteru] - Form of ganbaru, to persist on

Aah!! Today just do your best

Well there it is!! geez that took a while. see, I knew every line had a meaning.

in this context, the PON, or the pound, is the sound she's making to herself as she's counting. In verses 1 and 2 the context is that she's looking back; so for example, it's like Everyday [each time I've been] with you and then the Ponpon is the counting she's doing. also, the "RU JI KA WO ME YU I MA" in the middle has no meaning, they're just sounds to make the song more random.

well that's it! hope it isn't so confusing!! Giggle

no problem Daniel Laughing
actually I'll admit that I had to use some creative thinking there. that's what I think she's doing in the song based on the other things she said. if someone else did that then I'd think they'd get something different, so it's up to your imagination, really.

So nice the way you translated this song Boogie Loved it Love

And I read once that the "RU • JI • KA • WO • ME • YU • I • MA • A" has a meaning Confused
If you read it backwards, it will be "Amai yume wo kajiru" Giggle
