Re: SGYY Songs - Make your own!

You know, all my previous songs were rather well-known, so I thought I'd go with something more niche. Yes, I realize that's a cover, but since the original is in Japanese I thought I'd go with a translated version.

It just occurred to me
That I've been through this place again and again,
And in the same spot every time I repeatedly lose.
I never will give up
As I attempt to take the Wuzhang Plains near Changan,
But again I'm pushed off of them.

If I only had the City of Changan
It would make it so much easier to reach Luoyang but
Every time, somehow, every time, somehow,
Every time I lose.

I can't defeat Sima Yi!
No matter how I try to dodge all his plans, he just beats me again.
And even though I can get behind him
It's no use. I try to fight, but I get blown away in the end.
I march as fast as I can,
But when I had to go against Sima Yi's force I was helpless again.
I'll try again, of course, but this is my plan:
I'll keep Wei Yan saved in reserve just as long as I can!

[instrumental]

It just occurred to me
That my food stock's almost empty again.
If I don't go and withdraw now I'll never survive.
I never will give up,
But it's so difficult to navigate this land and
Now I see that I'm playing with my final life.

If I only had Chencang Fort I'd be fine.
It would make it so much easier to fight Sima Yi but
Every time, somehow, every time, somehow,
Every time I lose.

I can't defeat Hao Zhao!
No matter how I try to break his stone defense, he always stops me again.
And even though I can get behind him
It's no use. I try to get close but he keeps pushing me back.
I charge as fierce as I can,
But when I had to go against Hao Zhao's tricks, I'm helpless again.
I'll try again, of course, but this is my plan:
I'll keep Wei Yan saved in reserve just as long as I can!

You know what we need? More songs. Lots more songs. Let's start with Cao Cao.

This one goes out to the Yuan I helped.
This one goes out to the Yuan I turned against.
A simple prop to occupy my foe,
This one goes out to the Yuan I helped.

Fire
Fire

This one goes out to the Yuan I helped.
This one goes out to the Yuan I turned against.
A simple prop to occupy my foe,
This one goes out to the Yuan I helped.

Fire (he's fallin' down on his own, now)
Fire (he's fallin' down on his own, now)

This one goes out to the Yuan I helped.
This one goes out to the Yuan I turned against.
Another prop to occupy my foe,
This one goes out to the Yuan I helped.

Fire (he's fallin' down on his own, now)
Fire (he's fallin' down on his own, now)
Fire (he's fallin' down on his own, now)
Fire (he's fallin' down on his own, now)

You know who else should sing? Zhang Jiao.

Callin' out around the land -
Are you ready for a brand new change?
Summer's here and the time is right
For turbans in the streets.

There's turbans in Anping,
Down in Ganling lands,
Up in Julu.

All we need are turbans (brave turbans),
Brave turbans (brave turbans).
There'll be turbans everywhere (everywhere);
There'll be fightin' and lootin' and nobles dyin'
And turbans in the streets.

Oh, it doesn't matter who you are
Just as long as you are armed.
So come on, every guy (come on) lend a hand
Everywhere around the land.
There'll be turbans -
They're turbans in the street

This is an invitation
Across the nation;
A chance for the folks to loot.
There'll be fightin' and lootin' and nobles dyin'
And turbans in the streets.

Runan, Yuzhou. (Runan, Yuzhou.)
Guangyang and Zhuo now (Guangyang and Zhuo now)
Yeah, don't forget Yingchuan.
(Can't forget Yingchuan)
All we need are turbans (brave turbans ),
Brave turbans (brave turbans).
There'll be turbans everywhere (everywhere);
There'll be fightin' and lootin' and nobles dyin'
And turbans in the streets.

Oh, it doesn't matter who you are
Just as long as you are armed.
So come on, every guy (come on) lend a hand
Everywhere around the land.

There'll be turbans -
Turbans in the street
Nanyang, Jingzhou. (Nanyang, Jingzhou)
Mianzhu and Jianwei now (Mianzhu and Jianwei now)
Can't forget that Jinan City.
(Can't forget the Jinan City)
Way down in Bobo Valley
(Way down in Bobo Valley)

Not to mention Dong'a, Yanzhou (Not to mention, indeed)
Or Ma Yuanyi in Luoyang with the eunuchs (Yes, I know)
Wan city? (Wan City, Jingzhou)

And they said that Yuan Shao was the one who lost it!

I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

I'm a power seeker with a power need,
Not a bandit leader on a distant peak.
Young Sun Jian's screaming, his future in doubt.
With the pain and anger can't see a way out.
It ain't much I'm asking, I really say,
Gotta find me a future; move out of my way!
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

Listen all you people, come gather round.
I gotta use my game plan: gotta shake Yu to the ground!
Just give me what I know is mine,
People do you hear me, just give me the sign.
It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Just for the future I was denied in youth.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

You're a man with a one track mind,
So much to do in one life time (people do you hear me)
Not a man for compromise and where's and why's and living lies
So you're living it all, yes you're living it all,
And I'm giving it all, and I'm giving it all!
Whyyyyyyyyyyyy?

[music]

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Just for the future I was denied in youth.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

It ain't much I'm asking, if you want the truth
Just for the future I was denied in youth.
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!
I want it all, I want it all, I want it all, and I want it now!

I, I want it, I want it!

-=-=-

Finally, let's have a classic moment.

We're sailing through emptiness
And try to forget fear in vain.
The light of the dark setting sun
Won't bring our terror to an end.

Voices cry out through the fear and the dark
As we pray for our war to be better.

The words are dying in the night; no villain lasts forever.
The seasons pass and sunlight will shine on the Han again,
So let Wei's fleet now burn down in flames!

[music]

Locked in the south, in a world of living fear,
On the edge of our destruction, sailing on.
Still suffer in darkness with the dreams of Wei not meant to be
As we lie awake and curse the rising sun.

Sadness inside for Huangdi who he hides
Brings this pain in our hearts through each season.

The words are dying in the night; no villain lasts forever.
The seasons pass and sunlight will shine on the Han again,
So let Wei's fleet now burn down in flames!

[music]

Stare into my eyes;
I'm burning with might and desire.
Won't you come down and
Let yourself die in the fire?
So leave your force behind!

[music]

The words are dying in the night; no villain lasts forever.
The seasons pass and sunlight will shine on the Han again,
So help his force to die!

The words are dying in the night; no villain lasts forever.
The seasons pass and sunlight will shine on the Han again,
So let Wei's fleet now burn down in flaaaaames,
Now burn down in flaaaaames!
Unless I specifically say otherwise, assume I am talking about historical Three Kingdoms, and not the novel.
