YAPOOS – MYSTERIOUS GUY (1991)

lyrics by JUN TOGAWA | music by TOSHIRO SENSUI

From Dial Y. Togawa employs the secret agent themes she likes so much again, but this time applies it to her boyfriend, the so-called ‘mysterious guy.’

Translation and notes under the cut:

Mystery, mystery guy
Mystery, mystery guy

It seems like he’s hiding something from his past
This boyfriend with no job and no fixed address

He gets excessively mad at security cameras in banks
He winces when they scan him at Narita (1)
He gets deathly serious around laser beams on toys
It’s suspicious

This boyfriend that gets mad when you rub his back
No weak spots, like a sniper

He’s a little scared around infrared cameras
His eyes light up when an armored car passes
He can’t settle down while looking at art in the gallery
It’s suspicious

Kiss, kiss – well, who cares?
Kiss, kiss – I love you
You, in front of me right now
Kiss, kiss – I don’t care about your past
Yes, calm down, won’t you?

Mystery, mystery guy
Mystery, mystery guy

A psycho guy with a casual shadow
This boyfriend with no job and no fixed address

Mystery, mystery guy
Mystery, mystery guy

Mystery, mystery guy
Mystery, mystery guy

Mystery, mystery guy
Mystery, mystery guy

Mystery, mystery guy
Mystery, mystery guy
