Philip Bailey & Phil Collins  – Easy Lover (1984)

フィリップ・ベイリーとフィル・コリンズのデュエット曲です。

You’d better forget it (あなたはそれを忘れた方が良い)

had better+動詞の原形で「~した方が良い」と習いますが、「~した方が身のためだ」というように、どちらかと言えば命令文に近いニュアンスがある表現です。

動名詞を使ったことわざにも注目。

Seeing is believing = 見ることは信じること(百聞は一見にしかず)

Easy lover

She’ll get a hold on you believe it

Like no other

Before you know it you’ll be on your knees

She’s an easy lover

She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it

She’s like no other

And I’m just trying to make you see

She’s the kind of girl you dream of

Dream of keeping hold of

You’d better forget it

You’ll never get it

She will play around and leave you

Leave you and deceive you

Better forget it

Oh you’ll regret it

No you’ll never change her, so leave it, leave it

Get out quick cos seeing is believing

It’s the only way

You’ll ever know

She’s an easy lover

She’ll get a hold on you believe it

Like no other

Before you know it you’ll be on your knees

She’s an easy lover

She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it

She’s like no other

And I’m just trying to make you see

You’re the one that wants to hold her

Hold her and control her

You’d better forget it

You’ll never get it

For she’ll say there’s no other

Till she finds another

Better forget it

Oh you’ll regret it

And don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it

You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing

It’s the only way

You’ll ever know, ah

No don’t try to change her, just leave it, leave it

You’re not the only one, ooh seeing is believing

It’s the only way

You’ll ever know

She’s an easy lover

She’ll get a hold on you believe it

Like no other

Before you know it you’ll be on your knees

She’s an easy lover

She’ll take your heart but you won’t feel it

She’s like no other

And I’m just trying to make you see
