Who Are You(フー・アー・ユー)のストーリー・エピソード

モッズカルチャーを語る上で、欠かす事ができないバンド「ザ・フー」。 モッズ好きには外せない映画「さらば青春の光」は彼らのアルバム「四重人格」をベースに作られたと言われている。

でも、今回はその中からではなく、この曲。 彼らの荒っぽさと綺麗なハーモニーが重なり、バンド名にも関連するように、「Who Are You」と問い続ける。
これはきっと他人に「おまえは誰だ?」と問いかけているわけではなく、自分自身に「おまえは何者なんだ?」「何をするために生きているんだ?」と問いつめているかのように感じる。映画のように、若者たちは1度はこういった時期を過ごすものだと思う。

"お前は一体誰なんだ"

Who Are Youの和訳と英語歌詞

  • 【和訳】

    お前は一体誰なんだ

    お前は誰だ。
    お前は一体誰なんだ。

    ソーホーのアパートの前で、目が覚めた。
    警官は俺の名前を知ってたよ。
    こう言ったんだ、「今夜は家に帰って寝なさいよ、
    起き上がって歩けるのなら」

    俺は地下鉄駅に潜り込み、
    髪が風でふき流されるのを感じた。
    パンチを浴びせて、
    あれこれ偉そうに言ったのは覚えているんだが。

    お前は誰だ、誰なんだ。
    知りたいんだよ。
    教えてくれ、
    いったい誰なんだ。


    地下鉄に乗り、町から戻った。
    嫁さんの待つ家に戻ったんだ。
    ちょっと、死にかけたピエロのような気分だった。
    名犬リン・ティン・ティンみたいにね。

    背伸びしたら、しゃっくりまで出ちまった。
    また、忙しい日々に戻ったのさ。
    スタジオで11時間、
    なんてこった、外に何か方法はないのかねえ。

    お前は誰だ、誰なんだ。
    知りたいんだよ。
    教えてくれ、
    いったい誰なんだ。

    お前が歩いた場所、
    そこでは木から愛が落ちてくるんだよな。
    俺の心は壊れたカップのようなもの。
    膝立ちしている気分さ。

    下水溝みたいに、俺はつばを吐く。
    それでもまだ、お前のキスを受けている。
    俺は一体どうやって人に責任を果たせるんだろうか。
    こんな愛のあとで。

    お前は誰だ、誰なんだ。
    知りたいんだよ。
    教えてくれ、
    いったい誰なんだ。

    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?

    I woke up in a Soho doorway
    A policeman knew my name
    He said "You can go sleep at home tonight
    If you can get up and walk away"

    I staggered back to the underground
    And the breeze blew back my hair
    I remember throwin' punches around
    And preachin' from my chair

    Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    'Cause I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    I took the tube back out of town
    Back to the Rollin' Pin
    I felt a little like a dying clown
    With a streak of Rin Tin Tin

    I stretched back and I hiccoughed
    And looked back on my busy day
    Eleven hours in the Tin Pan
    God, there's got to be another way

    Well, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, who are you(Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh Tell me, who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh Who the fuck are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    Who are you?
    who are who are who are you x11

    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?
    Who are you?
    Who, who, who, who?

    I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    C'mon tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, I really wanna know (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    I know there's a place you walked
    Where love falls from the trees
    My heart is like a broken cup
    I only feel right on my knees

    I spit out like a sewer hole
    Yet still recieve your kiss
    How can I measure up to anyone now
    After such a love as this?

    Well who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    oh, I really wanna know? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    tell, tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)

    I used to check my reflection
    Jumping with my cheap guitar
    I must of lost my direction
    'Cause I ended up a superstar
    One night I's in the board room affected by the human race
    You can learn from my mistake but your posing in my glass again

    well who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    oh, I really wanna know? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    tell, tell me who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)


    C'mon, c'mon who? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, Who the fuck are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Who are you? (Who are you? Who, who, who, who?)
    Oh, tell me who are you (Who are you?, ooo?)

    I really wanna to know
    Oh, I really want to know
    C'mon tell me who are you, you, you?
    Who are you?
