Endou Kenji - Bob Lennon (20th Century Boys)

If you don't have a clue, "20th Century Boys" is one of the very best mangas produced in Japan. Coincidentally, even a huge success over there (author is Naoki Urasawa). If I don't survive today, this is my last post :)

This is a real song made by a fictional character. One of the best characters ever.

ENDOU KENJI - LOST KENJI TAPES - BOB LENNON

Hi ga kurete doko kara ka curry no nioi ga shiteru
Dore dake aruitara ie ni tadori tsukeru ka na
Boku no o-ki ni iri no nikuya no croquette wa
Itsumo doori no aji ga mattete kureru ka na

Chikyuu no ue ni yoru ga kuru
Boku wa ima ieji wo isogu

Rainen no koto wo iu to oni ga warau tte iu nara
Waraitai dake warawasetokeba ii
Boku wa iitsuzukeru yo gonen saki juunen saki no koto wo
Gojuunen go mo kimi to koushite iru darou to

Chikyuu no ue ni yoru ga kuru
Boku wa ima ieji wo isogu

Ame ga futte mo
Arashi ga kite mo
Yari ga furou to mo
Minna ie ni kaerou jama sasenai
Dare ni mo tomeru kenri wa nai

Chikyuu no ue ni yoru ga kuru
Boku wa ima ieji wo isogu
Sekaijuu ni yoru ga kuru
Sekaijuu ga ieji wo isogu
Sonna mainichi ga kimi no mawari de
Zutto zutto tsuzukimasu you ni

Approximate english translation (I have the correct italian version which is rather different):

The sun goes down, and I can smell
curry cookin', somewhere.
How long will we have to walk
before we get home?
Will the croquettes from my favorite shop
still taste the same,
waiting for me?

Night comes down upon the earth,
and 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
five or ten years in the future.
And fifty years later, If I'm still with you.

Night comes down upon the earth,
and I'm hurryin' home.

Well the rain may fall
and the storms may come
And the spears may fall.
Let's all go home.
They can't stop us.
Nobody has the right to stop us

Night comes down upon the earth,
and I'm hurryin' home.
Night around the world,
the entire world is hurrying home.
And I pray that these days will
continue for you,
forever and ever.
