Kunoichi Rhapsody

Some friends expressed their concern about Masuda Chiho. I am concerned with her too, so I modified Freddie Mercury's Bohemian Rhapsody to commemorate such poor female ninja.

Kunoichi Rhapsody

Is this the real life?
Is this just fantasy?
Caught in a landslide
No escape from reality
Open your eyes
Look up to the skies and see
I'm just a poor girl, I need no sympathy
Because I'm easy come, easy go
A little high, little low
Anyway the wind blows, doesn't really matter to me, to me

Oka1, just under arrest
Put a veil on my head
Dressed my nylon2, now I'm black
Oka, life had just begun
But now I've gone and thrown it all away
Oka, ooo
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not back again this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters

Too late, my time has come
Sends shivers down my spine
Body's aching all the time
Goodbye everybody - I've got to go
Gotta leave you all behind and face the truth
Oka, ooo - (anyway the wind blows)
I don't want to die
I sometimes wish I'd never been born at all

I see a little silhouetto of a man
Samurai3, Samurai will you use Mokubaza4
Thunderbolt and lightning - very very frightening me
Kunoichi, Kunoichi,
Kunoichi, Kunoichi,
Kunoichi Nihon5 - schiavo

But I'm just a poor girl and nobody loves me
She's just a poor girl from a poor family
Spare her her life from this monstrosity
Easy come easy go - will you let me go
Zinmutenno6! No - we will not let you go - let her go
Zinmutenno! We will not let you go - let her go
Zinmutenno! We will not let you go - let me go
Will not let you go - let me go (never)
Never let you go - let me go
Never let me go - ooo
No, no, no, no, no, no, no -
Oh Oka mia, Oka mia, Oka mia let me go
Akuryo7 has a devil put aside for me
for me
for me

So you think you can stone me and spit in my eye
So you think you can love me and leave me to die
Oh baby - can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out - just gotta get right outta here

Ooh yeah, ooh yeah
Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters - nothing really matters to me

Anyway the wind blows...

I think it is better than the original.
