Tizzy Bac: Sideshow Bob

One of their biggest hits.

And no wonder, with it’s great music:
the melody refrain bridge ‘transformed verse’ spaces holds and pauses fast/slow transitions loud/still contrasts…
and just as wonderful lyrics.

[And what a title.
Indeed, the biggest clowns and flippant jesters are often the most sensitive and complex of melancholics…

And psychotic evil genius technicolour villains.
Even without the big hair.

Tizzy Bac: Sideshow Bob

Sideshow Bob

Hey dear,it’s just a joke
这是我独有的幽默
想把快乐都传染给你
忘了你其实不想游戏

不是有话不说
只有些痛处只能微笑以对
现在过得不错
只是有些梦想遗失了
Hey dear,it’s just a joke
我不停的对自己说
沉默是我的心意
让你真能做你自己

我可以大声歌唱
可以去我想去的异国餐厅
自由地看场电影
只是到哪儿都想起你
Hey dear,am I a joke?
我太天真过了头
总以为要付出才对
忘了你再不用我陪

啊我天生劳碌的命
适合演独脚戏
要证明给你我真的可以
当排练记忆花了太多时间
自我会变得透明
这故事让我傻了眼
开始结束都在一瞬间

也知道别再勉强
除了你这世上还有好人
偏我爱提醒自己
和孤单早有了约定
Hey dear,it’s just a joke
这是我独有的幽默
想把快乐都传染给你
忘了你其实不想游戏

啊我天生劳碌的命
适合演独脚戏
要证明给你我真的可以
当排练记忆花了太多时间
自我会变得透明
这故事让我傻了眼
开始结束都在一瞬间

当排练记忆花了太多时间
自我会变得透明
你怎么一溜烟就逃得远
又剩我一个人要做结尾

Hey dear,it’s just a joke
This is my unique humour
Wish to infect you with happiness
Forgetting that you really do not want to play

Not that there are words not said
Just that there are some pains only wry smiles can counter
Doing pretty alright now
Just have some dreams would like to misplace
Hey dear,it’s just a joke
I tell myself over and over
Silence is my offering
To let you be truely yourself

I can let out in loud singing
Can go to the foreign restaurant I like
Watch a movie freely
Only that wherever I go I think of you
Hey dear,am I a joke?
I am too naive over the top
Keep believing I have to give of myself
Forgetting that you no longer need my company

Ah – My predestined blighted overworked life
Suited for a solo performance (one-man-show)
Want to prove to you I really am able
When rehearsing memories take up too much time
The self will become transparent
This story leaves me wide-eyed (flabbergasted)
Begining and end – all in a single moment

Also know – should stop forcing it
Apart from you there are other good persons in the world
But I can’t help reminding myself
I have an appointment with Loneliness
Hey dear,it’s just a joke
This is my unique humour
Wish to infect you with happiness
Forgetting that you really do not want to play

Ah – My predestined blighted overworked life
Suited for a solo performance (one-man-show)
Want to prove to you I really am able
When rehearsing memories take up too much time
The self will become transparent
This story leaves me wide-eyed (flabbergasted)
Begining and end – all in a single moment

When rehearsing memories take up too much time
The self will become transparent
How did you – in a wisp of a moment – run so far
Leaving me alone again – to do the ending

Sigh…
Great sounds, great lines.
