Blabbering of a Fool

Bob Lennon lyrics & translation

The song that saved the world.
Just the first part though, from the year 2000. 🙂

Original lyrics written by 浦沢 直樹 (Urasawa Naoki) himself (and probably performed by himself too), and taken from here, with several editing done.
Isn’t for sale anywhere as the CD was included in the 11th volume of the manga (first-print – Japanese).

Translation taken from the scanlations of the manga, with slight editing done.

ボブ・レノン (Bob Lennon)
Performed by: 遠藤 賢司/ケンジ (Endou Kenji)
From: 20世紀少年 (Twentieth Century Boys)

日が暮れて どこからか
hi ga kurete doko kara ka
カレーの匂いがしてる
karee (curry) no nioi ga shiteru

どれだけ歩いたら 家にたどりつけるかな
dore dake aruitara ie ni tadori tsukeru kana

僕のお気に入りの 肉屋のコロッケは
boku no oki ni iri no nikuya no korokke (croquette) wa
いつもどおりの味で 待っててくれるかな
itsumo doori no aji de mattete kureru kana

地球の上に夜が来る
chikyuu no ue ni yoru ga kuru
僕は今 家路を急いでる
boku wa ima ieji o isoideru

来年のことを言うと 鬼が笑うっていうなら
rainen no koto o iu to oni ga warautte iu nara
笑いたいだけ 笑わせとけばいい
waraitai dake warawase tokeba ii

僕は言い続けるよ 5年先10年先のことを
boku wa ii tsuzukeru yo gonen saki juunen saki no koto o
50年後も
キミとこうしているだろうと
gojuunen go mo kimi to koushite iru darou to

地球の上に夜が来る
chikyuu no ue ni yoru ga kuru
僕は今 家路を急ぐ
boku wa ima ieji o isogu

雨が降っても 嵐が来ても
ame ga futte mo arashi ga kite mo
やりが降ろうとも みんな家に帰ろう
yari ga furou to mo minna ie ni kaerou

邪魔させない 誰にも止める権利はない
jama sasenai dare ni mo tomeru kenri wa nai

地球の上に夜が来る
chikyuu no ue ni yoru ga kuru
僕は今 家路を急ぐ
boku wa ima ieji o isogu

世界中に夜が来る
sekaijuu ni yoru ga kuru
世界中が家路を急ぐ
sekaijuu ga ieji o isogu

そんな毎日が キミのまわりで
sonna mainichi ga kimi no mawari de
ずっと ずっと 続きますように

zutto zutto tsuzukimasu you ni…

Bob Lennon

The sun goes down, and somewhere
I can smell curry cookin’

How long will we have to walk before we get home?

Will the croquettes from my favorite shop
Still taste the same? And waiting for me?

Night comes down upon the earth
And now, I’m hurryin’ home

They say the ogres will be laughing next year
And I say, let ’em laugh all they like

I’ll keep talkin’ about 5 or 10 years in the future
And 50 years later, if I’m still with you

Night comes down upon the earth
And now, I’m hurryin’ home

Rain may fall, and storms may come
Spears may fall, so let’s all go home

They can’t stop us, nobody has the right to stop us

Night comes down upon the earth
And now, I’m hurryin’ home

Night comes down upon the entire world
And the entire world is hurryin’ home

And I pray that these days will
Continue forever and ever…
