The title Izakaya ("居酒屋") which I check is a reference to a type of Japanese drinking establishment or quite simply using google translation, The Pub, sung by enka singers, Nana Kinomi and Hiroshi Itsuki. Here Masha did a duet with a singer named Aiko at her show, All Night Nippon's sing! aiko back then in year 2000. Very blue-sy, I sorta wish Masha will explore more of this genre as his voice is perfect for it. By the way after reading the lyrics, sounds like Masha kind of song!

The original version and the lyrics after Read More link.

I believe it has a Big Band feel to it as opposed to Blue-sy feel. Not sure what's the year but looks like in the 70s.

もしも きらいでなかったら
何か一杯 のんでくれ

そうね ダブルのバーボンを
遠慮しないで いただくわ

名前きくほど 野暮じゃない
まして 身の上話など

そうよ たまたま 居酒屋で

絵もない 花もない 歌もない 飾る言葉も
洒落もない そんな居酒屋で

外へ出たなら 雨だろう
さっき 小雨がパラついた

いいわ やむまで 此処にいて
一人グイグイ のんでるわ

それじゃ 朝までつき合うか

別に 気にすることはない
あなた さっさと帰ってよ

絵もない 花もない 歌もない 飾る言葉も
洒落もない そんな居酒屋で

Moshimo kirai de nakattara
Nani ka ippai nonde kure

Sou ne daburu no baabon wo
Enryo shinai de itadaku wa

Namae kiku hodo yabo janai
Mashite minoue hanashi nado

Sou yo tamatama izakaya de
Yoko ni suwatta dakedo mono

E mo nai hana mo nai uta mo nai kazaru kotoba mo
Share mo nai sonna izakaya de

Soto e deta nara ame darou
Sakki kosame ga bara tsuita

Ii wa yamu made koko ni ite
Hitori guigui nonderu wa

Sore ja asa made tsuki au ka
Warui onna to shiri atta

Betsu ni ki ni suru koto wa nai
Anata sassato kaette yo

E mo nai hana mo nai uta mo nai kazatu kotoba mo
Share mo nai sonna izakaya de

If there’s something you don’t hate
Have a drink

Yeah, I’ll come right out
And have a double bourbon

I’m not gauche enough to ask your name
Let alone anything about you

Yeah, we just happen to be sitting
Together at a pub

In a shabby pub
With no pictures, no flowers, no songs or flowery words

If you’re thinking of going outside, I think it’s raining
I heard the pitter-patter of drizzle before

It’s OK, I’ll stay in here until it stops
I’ll sit here and chug down drinks on my own

In that case, should I stay with you until the morning?
I’ve met some bad girls

You don’t need to worry about that
You just go on home

In a shabby pub
With no pictures, no flowers, no songs or flowery words

Sometimes I receive some media files or stuff about Masha that can't be publicly shared, but I can however share privately, such as concert clips, etc. I would love to share whatever I got with you, as a way of disseminating information of Masha to the masses. You probably have all that stuff if you're an experienced fan, but if you are new to Masha or does not know other experienced fans, you probably won't have most of what I can send to you. I don't send emails often, since frankly I don't get such stuff often but when I do, I will send the link if I am allowed to do so. So do join my contact list but be reminded, you're not allowed to repost/redistribute/reupload whatever I send you whether in whole or in part. Anyone interested, redirect them to my blog and ask them to join my contact list. But this is only open to those who will answer the questions in the form below accurately. If you're successful, you will receive quite a few emails since I group all links together into categorised documents. If you're not, I will email and inform why (probably answered some wrongly, such as title not in Romaji or wrong answer). Once you found the answer, please RESUBMIT THE FORM. If you did not receive my emails (whether the many materials or rejection email) within 3 days of joining, please do resend your request. Thanks for joining!
