Song Title: レイコさん (Reiko-San)
Album: AOIRO
Track Number: 10
Released: 2014
Lyrics By: Yamazaki Aoi
Listen: YouTube

The story behind this song is pretty amusing... apparently "Reiko-san" is the name of Yamazaki's best friend's mother in middle school. This woman poked fun at Yamazaki for being a muscle-y girl, so Yamazaki joked to her friends that she would write a song about this mean woman. XD

Kanji Romaji English Translation
元は小柄な女性ですが 
いつの間にか大物なのです
喧嘩も嫌いではありません
彼女の名前はレイコさん 
演劇部で身につけた
迫力の声もミモノです

ただ顔だけがいい人は 
年老いたら抜け殻さ
男は顔じゃなくって 中身だ 
財布の中身だって

彼女の名前はレイコさん 
凛として笑ってる
娘も大きくなったし 
そろそろ遊びに出かけようか
彼女の名前はレイコさん 
油断してたらいつか
やられるぜ 胸の奥 
刺さるような 言葉のナイフ

ただ顔がいい人も 
たまに遊ぶならいいよね
男は顔じゃないけど 本当に 
顔なんて見てないけど

彼女の名前はレイコさん 
凛として笑ってる
可愛いなって近付くと 
可愛くないこと言われちゃうよ
彼女の名前はレイコさん 
娘の友達からも
愛されて 愛されて 
それでも向けるの 言葉のナイフ

彼女の名前はレイコさん

She was originally a petite woman,
but became a big shot before you knew it.
She doesn’t mind picking a fight.
Her name is Reiko-san,
I picked it up in drama club.
Her powerful voice is something worth hearing.

People have just nice faces,
but when they grow uold, they become empty shells.
A man isn’t just a face,
they have substance, the substance of a wallet.

Her name is Reiko-san,
she has a frigid laugh.
Her daughter also grew big,
shall we play soon?
Her name is Reiko-san,
if she’s ever caught off guard one day,
she’ll dispatch her words, like knives,
that stick right into your heart.

It’s nice if we play with people
that have just nice faces.
But a man isn’t just a face, really,
but she doesn’t see their faces.

Her name is Reiko-san,
she has a frigid laugh.
If you come up to her and say she’s cute,
she’ll say things that aren’t cute.
Her name is Reiko-san,
her daughter’s friends
love her, love her, but her words, like knives,
still turn towards them.

Her name is Reiko-san.
Reiko-san.
