トレイシー・チャップマン/バン バン バン*Tracy Chapman/Bang Bang Bang■和訳・訳詞・歌詞・日本語・Japanese Lyrics

あなたのやろうとしていること

それは、あの男の子に銃を与えてやること

もう、逃げる場所なんてない

逃げる場所なんて

 

あの子は銃を握りしめると

自分が誰よりも強くなったように感じる

もう、逃げる場所なんてない

逃げる場所なんて

 

ある日、あの子は帰ってくるかもしれない

私たちのしたことへのお返しをするために

そうしたら、どこへ逃げるの

どこへ逃げるの

 

でも、ある晴れた日

私たちの悩みは消えてなくなってしまうでしょう

バン、バン、バン

私たち、あの子を撃ち殺すの

 

クスリでもキャンディでも何でもあげればいい

あの子が幸せだと思えるような物なら何でも

そうすれば、あの子は私たちを狙ってこない

 

でも、もし狙ってきたら

そして、その時、辺りに誰もいなければ

バン、バン、バン

私たち、あの子を撃ち殺しましょう

 

あの子が餌食にするのは、まわりの人間だけ

あの子の兄弟や姉妹や友達だけ

だったら、喜ばしいことだと思いましょう

当然の報いだと思いましょう

 

でも、もしあの子が私やあなとのところへ帰ってきたら

あの子に銃を持たせたうえで

バン、バン、バン

私たち、あの子を撃ち殺しましょう

 

もし、あの子が私たちを捜し出そうとするなら

私たちはみんなあの子の情けにすがることになる

だって、逃げる場所なんてないんだから

逃げる場所なんて

 

あの子が、あなたが取り上げたチャンスを

返してほしいと思ってる

あなたの持っているものなんて、何もないというのに

だったらもう、逃げる場所なんてない

逃げる場所なんて

 

そしてもし、あの子が自分は

私たちを映し出す鏡のようなものだと気づいたら

バン、バン、バン

あの子は私たちを撃ち殺すでしょう

 

あなたが目をあげて

壁に書いてある文字を読み取る前に

バン、バン、バン

あの子はあなたを撃ち殺すでしょう

 

あなたが、あの子との間に広がる湾に橋をかけ

あの子を抱きしめようとしても、その前に

バン、バン、バン

あの子は私たちを撃ち殺すでしょう

 

What you go and do
You go and give the boy a gun
Now there ain't place to run to
Ain't no place to run to

When he hold it in his hand
He feel mighty he feel strong
Now there ain't no place to run to
Ain't no place to run

One day he may come back
Repay us for what we've done
Then where you gonna run to
Where you gonna run

But one fine day
All our problems will be solved
Bang bang bang
We'll shoot him down

Give him drugs and give him candy
Anything to make him think he's happy
And he won't ever come for us
He won't ever come

But if he does
And if there's no one else around
Bang bang bang
We'll shoot him down

If he preys only on his neighbors
Brothers sisters and friends
We'll consider it a favor
We'll consider justice done

But if he comes for you or me
And we can place a gun in his hand
Bang bang bang
We'll shoot him dead

What you go and do
You go and give the boy a gun
Now there ain't no place to run to
Ain't no place to run

Now we'll all be at his mercy
If he decides to hunt us down
Cause there ain't no place to run to
Ain't no place to run

If he wants the chances that you took from him
And nothing that you own
Then there'll be no place to run to
There'll be no place to run

And if he finds himself to be
A reflection of us all
Bang bang bang
He'll shoot us down

Before you can raise your eyes to read
The writing on the wall
Bang bang bang
He'll shoot you down

Before you can bridge the gulf between
And embrace him in your arms
Bang bang bang
He'll shoot you down

 

 

So you make a little money
Off of somebody else's sweat
So some people  starve a little
While you get fat
While you get fat

So you grind and grind
And you push and shove
And claim that those most worthy
Will get what they deserve
What they deserve

It can't be true
It can't be true
Because I've seen too many hungry faces
I've seen too many with the likes of you
It can't be true

For you everything has it's price
You give nothing away for free
If silence were truly golden
I guess no one could sleep
No one could sleep

You have money at your fingertips
People at your beck and call
And you're fool enough
To think for a price
You can have the whole wide world

For all our sake's
And all our lives
We must hope the words
That come from your lips
We must hope those words are lies

For all our sake's
And all our lives
We must hope the dreams
Soulless visions that you have
Are never realized

So
You've got a big house
And you drive a fancy car
So what if your pockets are full
If you have an empty heart

You snap your fingers
And all the waters part
So what if the people bow down
If they show you no regard

Your left hand
Always watches your right
So what if you trust in God
If you can't sleep at night

You think you've made it
You think you've got what everyone wants
So what if you're a big fat man
With an empty little heart

Who has made a little money
Off of somebody else's sweat
Who watched the people starve
While you got fat
While you got fat
You got fat
You got fat
