Жалобная песнь К. К.
"K.K. Lament" is a K.K. Slider song that first appears in Doubutsu no Mori. It has a sad-sounding melody. As the Japanese title suggests, this song is based on a style of Japanese music/singing called enka. This type of music can be described as sentimental ballads, blending an almost lounge-like vocal performance with emotional themes, like from love, loss, death, and other hardships.
The album cover for "K.K. Lament" features K.K. Slider standing near the rock on the shore. Gulliver is flying in the background. In New Leaf, the text at the left is illegible, while in New Horizons, the text reads the Japanese title of the song in kanji, "けけ演歌" (Keke Enka).
