When I was playing I tripped and skinned my knee
There was blood coming out of my leg, I could see
But I laughed it off since I knew it soon would heal
By tomorrow there would be a scab I could peel
When class was out they came for me again
And they won, and they left me to cry in the lane
But I laughed it off—they had better be prepared:
On the day I turn the tables, none will be spared
At the cape I push my boat off from the land
And it blows, the sails billowing tall and grand
I can see the shore receding in the breeze
As I go on my voyage to sail the seven seas
When, another day, I got into a fight
Every punch made a bruise coloured dark like the night
But I laughed it off, even said he’d beat me true:
I had enough victories to spare one or two
On the hill, I spread my arms into the sky
When it blows, I leap, and flapping them, I fly
I can see the ground receding in the breeze
As I soar with the birds up above the tallest trees
From the south a gale rises into a squall
And the clouds they burst and raindrops start to fall
It’s a sign that spring is ready to begin
But I first must return home to take the laundry in
brownricecookies: What an unbelievably innocent and cute song. Makes you want to leap out of the door with a wooden sword in hand to fight the goblins and ogres you just know are lurking beneath the nearest bridge.
And then you realise that the composer-and-lyricist of this childishly innocent song, Satou Ryousei (佐藤良成), comes from a band named Humbert Humbert.
