SUGAR BABE – DOWN TOWN (1975)

lyrics by GINJI ITO | music by TATSURO YAMASHITA

This is the band Yamashita was in before he went solo. It’s cheery stuff.

Translation and notes under the cut:

A seven-colored twilight descends
And the breeze is just a bit chilly
Saturday nights are always so lively

The street corner is always so crowded and hot
But even so, it’s cheerful, this town
Everyone’s always dressed up

Even gloomy feelings
Soon fade away
As everyone drifts through the night with a smile

We’ll all head downtown
We’ll all head downtown
We’ll all head downtown

Love again tonight, only for tonight
It’ll vanish like bubbles
The night starts from here

Even gloomy feelings
Soon fade away
As everyone drifts through the night with a smile
We’ll all head downtown
We’ll all head downtown
We’ll all head downtown
