    Dear Zachary,

    I am a musician from the UK, and my partner and I are big fans of Okinawan singer Ikue Asazaki. My partner, Yash, is a singer, and has recently become very interested in Ryukyuan music- we bought one of Asazaki's CDs and she performed Tokuno Shimasetsu last year.

    Yash wants to sing Itsuki no Komori Uta next but we have found it impossible to find the lyrics online- there are the lyrics for the folk song but Ikue Asazaki's version is different. We do not necessarily need a translation- the important part is the lyrics transliterated into phonetic English or Japanese.

    It would be very greatly appreciated if you would be able to help us, or point us in the direction of someone who could. I can send you the song, and I would be happy to send you a copy of our CD as a thank you if you can translate the lyrics for us yourself, as I know how much Yash wants these lyrics.

    Thank you for your time,
