Why "goru"? Is it just a mistake?

It can actually be
, depending on your frame of reference.
Contemporary pronunciation favors
. Classic pronunciation, at the time of the song's introduction to the revue, favors
. In any case, it can be either!

Indeed, and "goro" is still used today, too, although the version I saw them sing in a video youtube had "koro" in the subtitles.
But my point is that the page title has "goru", not "goro" or "koro", that seems strange.

Oh, yes, I do realize that
is still used today in normal speech - and is a completely viable pronunciation . I had actually meant in the context of the song and it's lyrics, in listening and comparing recordings of the song sung today versus that sung more than half a century ago.
In any case, a new and more complete version of our current glossary was already in the works and I've already addressed this issue (as it, too, was one of the pet peeves I'd had about this page :) ).
