Billy
by Nik Kershaw

Billy is a new man, he does the best he can
to figure out what it's about and what thehell he's meant to be.
He does the right thing when expected, nuff
respect , once in a while he likes a smoke and a joke, just as long as it's P.C.
And he thinks that he cries at the Movies
''cause he's in touch with his feminine side
Sally wants a proud man
Sally wants a proud man
Sally wants a proud man
But she's taken all his pride

Billy is a new man, at least when she's around,a model father or if needed, he'll
be mother for the day,
He watches "Men Behaving Badly" though
he'll gladly switch it off if she's offended
he'll pretend it wasn't funny any way
He's got one face he keeps for his woman
And one for when he's out with the guys
Sally wants a true man
Sally wants a true man
Sally wants a true man
But he's living out a lie

Better go and find an analyst, or something
time for sorting out his head
Better go and find a book to read about it
just like his daddy never did

And he reads Marie Claire at the Doctors just
in case there is something he should know

Sally wants a free man
Sally wants a free man
Sally wants a free man
But she will not let him go

Billy is confused, he feels abusive and abused
he's got one hand on an olive branch
the other on his crotch
He drives a sensible coupe, he thinks Oasis
are OK, he drinks non alcoholic lager though
he'd rather drink a scotch

And he tries very hard to be happy but there
are a few little things in the way

Billy wants a good girl and a bad girl and ablonde girl, and a brunette or a Bond girl and
a house maid and a teas maid and a Frenchmaid, yes a sex aid, and a Goddess and aconfidante, a wet nurse and an agony aunt,
a lover, mother, baby sitter, a young girl with a
pretty face and smart but not too smart to love
an arsehole, yeah, an arsehole, Billy wants to be
an arsehole, singin'

Billy wants it all now
Billy wants it all now
Billy wants it all now
But he's too ashamed to say

And
Sally wants a Superman
Sally wants a Superman
Sally wants a Superman
She hasn't got a chance

Kanno Yoichi

on The Riddle

I got two strong arms
Blessings of Babylon
With time to carry on
And try for sins
And false alarms
So to america the brave
Wise men save
僕は二つの強い武器を知ってる
バビロンの恵み(文明の力の比喩)を
行使する力と
その罪業や
誤った警告を行使する力だ
アメリカの勇敢なる
賢者がやっているようにね

[chorus]
Near a tree by a river
There's a hole in the ground
Where an old man of Erin
Goes around and around
And his mind is a beacon
In the veil of the night
For a strange kind of fashion
There's a wrong and a right
But he'll never, never fight over you
川沿いに木があり
地面に穴のあいた土地があり
年老いたエール(アイルランド)人の男が
うろうろしている
彼の心は夜を照らす
灯台のようだ
似合っているかどうかはともかく
彼は変な格好をしている
でも彼は君と争いはしないだろう

I got plans for us
Nights in the scullery
And days instead of me
I only know what to discuss
Of for anything but light
Wise men fighting over you
僕はひらめいたことがある
洗い流したいような夜と
昼を僕が背負おうかと
ただ僕は話し合うことがあればいい
光のこと以外ならね
賢者達が君と争うと言うのならね

It's not me you see
Pieces of valentine
With just a song of mine
To keep from burning history
Seasons of gasoline and gold
Wise men fold
君が見てるのは僕じゃないさ
バレンタインの欠片かな
そうそれは僕の歌の中さ
戦火の歴史からもガソリンや
金の暴騰からも避けられるようにとね
賢者達は避けずにいくだろうがね

[chorus repeat]

I got time to kill
Sly looks in corridors
Without a plan of yours
A blackbird sings on bluebird hill
thanks to the calling of the wild
Wise mens child
暇つぶしの時間があったのさ
予定外の行動をする君を
こっそりと見に廊下に出たのさ
ブラックバードが幸せの青い鳥の丘でさえずってる
荒々しい賢者の子供を呼んでくれて有難うとね

[chorus repeat (2x)]
..But he'll never, never fight over you
でも彼は君と争いはしないだろう
