We Are Speechless

I'm outraged. That clip doesn't include production credits! Now how am I supposed to find the album at my local record store?

Just bike right down there and sing it to them. Be sure to take a large container of nasality with you.

You laugh, but this little number actually won the John Mark Karr award for artistic excellence this year.

I tried that, Arlington. Trouble is that I did it in costume. Philadelphia doesn't take too kindly to 190 pounds of pink tank-topped, gogo booted male. I'm not allowed back in Tower Records.

At first blush I would agree that this video appears WAY too wholesome for the readership of this blog.

However, after closer examination (with the benefit of 4+ years of advanced Japanese at that community college I attended back East) I'm pretty sure a loose interpretation of the lyrics is, "Oh, give it to me baby, give it to me (expletive) HARD!"

That would explain the endless repetition, wouldn't it?

Boola, boola!

This hypnotized me.

Somebody gotta figure out what they're saying. I can't stop playing the thing, and it gives me a terrific headache. I'm like addicted or something. I can't stop myself.

While there is no accounting for it, many of our readers are extremely intelligent, know a great deal, and are highly educated. There is even, on occasion, some overlap between these groups.

Surely someone can find a Japanese speaker who can tell us what these little muffins (who should be put away for crimes against humanity) are saying, eh? I know for a fact that we have readers on the west coast. Do none of you know anyone who speaks Japanese? Is everyone in California from Mexico?

Perhaps not an exact translation. But, with the help of wiki (http://wiki.theppn.org/Ookina_Ai_de_Motenashite) and Google Translation, I humbly submit the lyrics below. BTW, if these really are the lyrics, who feels dirty?

Have with big love forming
have with big love forming
have with big love forming

No disrespect to AI, but I'm going to second Handsome Dan's translation. Who can argue with a community college education? Besides, the little vixens looked like tramps.

AI? Damn, man. You've got WAY too much free time. Get a job, or a hobby, or a girlfriend. Damn!

 

Blogger Almost Ignatius J. said ... (12:38 AM) : 

Dear Uncle M,

Job? Check
Hobby? Nope
Girlfriend? Nope

Best,

Al
