黒田節

酒は飲め飲め 飲むならば
日の本一の この槍を
飲みとるほどに 飲むならば
これぞ眞(まこと)の 黒田武士

峰の 嵐か 松風か
たづぬる人の 琴の音か
駒引を止めて 聞くほどに
爪音(つまおと)高き 想夫戀(さうふれん)

Sake wa nome nome nomu naraba
Hi no moto ichi no kono yari wo
Nomitoru hodo ni nomu naraba
Kore zo makoto no kuroda bushi
Mine no arashi ka matsukaze ka
Tazunuru hito no koto no ke ka
Koma o todomete kiku hodo ni
Tsumaoto shiruki soufuren
