"That Someone Special (51)" - Song lyrics (translator):

Murderation
under-employment
drug infestation
unwanted teenage pregnancy
another day to face the crazy boss-man.

Life
in reality
is one
BIG load’a shit
just waiting
to stink
an’ stink
an’ stink
what makes Us survive
its smell
is that someone - a
Special Someone
who comes around once --
only once
in a … lifetime
and maybe - just maybe
if We’re real lucky
We get a second chance
at a Person
so special.

A’ sey … murderation
under-employment
drug infestation
unwanted teenage pregnancy
another day to face the crazy boss-man
to confront de’stress of dis day-to-day livin’.

Now … this Special Someone
is only special
because - it’s dis
not even knowing why
He - She
cares about YOU     they care about You

the Person
wanting to be cared - for
and that Special Someone
We oft’times call
shy - bashful
awkward and even stupid
at times
as They are NEVER
the talk of the town
never accepted
for WHO - They are
yet, They not only accept YOU
for You
but They
CARE - care - care
why, They’re never out
to prove anything
not to Themselves
or to any -- body
for that matter.

Now….this Special Someone
is only special
because He - She
cares about YOU
the Person
wanting to be cared for
why, They’re never out
to prove anything!
not to Themselves
or to any -- body
for that matter.

An’ it’s a shame
We often let that Special Someone
slip by
because in Our arrogance
We failed to see
They gave
of Themselves
not material wealth
They gave
because …. ‘IT’ didn’t matter

and most sincere
because
They wanted to
and if You --
the Person wanting to be cared -- for
should, at anytime
give back
that Special Someone
won’t know - how
to handle it
They often times - ask
why? - demanding a reason
AS -- They gave willingly
not looking for
a ... return.

They gave
of Themselves
not material wealth
They gave
because ‘IT’ didn’t matter
and most sincere
because
They wanted to.

They might not have had - all
to bail You out
of that unexpected, tight situation
but They were there
with a critical and supportive thought - anyway
when loneliness
seems … the only friend
an unanticipated call
jus’ to … shoot de’breeze
Someone - whose credibility is such
You can confide an uttermost thought with
and even dare to call
when a reference is needed
an’ when You did
that unforeseen
unexplainable wrong
They uttered
not a word

but with the strength of signature
They were there
to be called - on … to talk - with
to unwind -- to gripe
while rubbing it in
They ‘KILL’  You
with that empty stare an’ silence
making YOUR guilt
the one to steer You
on the track - of experience
making, the knowing better, of YOUR guilt
the one to steer You
on the track - of experience.

An’ when You did
that unforeseen
unexplainable wrong
They uttered
not a word
but with the strength of signature
They were there
to be called - on … to talk - with
to unwind -- to gripe
while rubbing it in
They ‘KILL’ You
with that empty stare an’ silence
making YOUR guilt
the one to steer You
on the track - of experience
making, the knowing better, of YOUR guilt
the one to steer You
on the track - of experience.

Now … how many times have We
seen - met
or heard of
this Someone
- SO  VERY,  VERY  SPECIAL -
(how many times?)2x

The definition of friendship
must have been written
after the observation by ones enemy.
