Happa-tai – YATTA!

 

Happa-tai bildades 2001. Låten Yatta är en kommentar till Japans dåliga ekonomi.

Texten är en blandning av engelska och japanska – och är otroligt äckelpositiv. En strof lyder: ”We’re so healthy, it just makes ya sick!”

Har skrivt av den japansk-engelska texten först – så att man kan köra lite hemmakaraoke – och under den – den engelska texten.

It’s so easy! Happy-go-lucky!
We are the world! We did it!
Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Whoo! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! (Unh!)

All right! All right!
We’re doin’ great in college!
All right! All right!
Made president at our jobs!
Long as we’ve one leaf on, we’re doin’ fine!

Hey, we’re lucky just ’cause we’re alive!

All right! All right!
We’ve been confirmed for the prize!
All right! All right!
We’re representing Japan!
We’re so healthy, it just makes ya sick!
Everybody say ”All right!”

Japan’s got crises (but)
Tomorrow’s wonderful
Even if somebody’s mean to us, we just go to bed and
Snore! Snore! Snore! Snore! Pass! Pass! Pass! Pass! (Good morniiiiing!)

All right! All right!
We got nine hours of sleep!
All right! All right!
Woke up and jumped outta bed
What kinda great things might await us now?

Hey, we’re lucky just ’cause we’re alive!

All right! All right!
If there’s a change in you
All right! All right!
Then the whole world will change too.
Getting through it unhurt’s the best of all.

Just stand up straight because it feels greeeaat!!

I drink water that’s tasty! (All right!)
I get in the sun and feel toasty! (All right!)
Havin’ a belly laugh’s fun! (All right! All right!)
Try keeping dogs–they’re cute! (All right!)

As we brushed past each other, you favored me with a smile.
It’s okay if we never meet again. I’m lucky you were here just for a while!

We’ve got recession these days…in goverment we’ve no faith.
Could we hit ”reset,” that’d be number one!

And since we’re all here, it’s just so much fun!

All right! All right!
In university class
All right! All right!
We’ve got a movie star!
Long as we’ve one leaf on, we’re doin’ fine!

We’re all together, it’s a happy time!

All right! All right!
Long as we still can breathe in…
All right! All right!
Long as we still can breathe out…
We’re so healthy, it just makes ya sick!
Everybody say ”All right!”

Bye-Q!

Happa-tai har inspirerats av flera pojkband – men även av den gamla hederliga discogruppen Village People – och deras YMCA.

samt Go West…
