I think this song has some errors in it.

Yuhi you yamani
Teru-Teru Momiji
Kaeru yatokage ga
Kon'nichi wa
Koi no arai
Tabu no ko umani

Should read (imo):

夕日のお山に yuuhi no o-yama ni
照る照る紅葉 teru teru momiji
蛙や蜥蜴が kaeru ya tokage ga
こんいちは konnichi wa

鯉の荒いも koi no arai mo
数の子旨煮 kazunoko umani

So the translation should be something like:

In the mountains at sunset, Momiji shines.
Hello to the frogs, lizards and everyone.

We're like koi
and herring roe in sugar sauce.

The context for the song is that they're in the mountains on vacation, soaking in an onsen. So I think the line "teru teru momiji" is a pun on 照る照る坊主- the little dolls one uses to wish for good weather. And the line "kazunoko umani" is a pun on what they're doing while he sings (soaking in hot water).

oh gawd who the heck put this up...

Can you post the final version? Split it up by romaji-t/l-kanji for me please. Make sure the alignment's right.
