lyrique de la semaine #2

Quite frankly, a lyrical genius like Ringo deserves TWO lyrics of the week. And for the second, we tackle the seminal "積木遊び" from her debut album "無罪モラトリアム"

"You know, how much I care it!"

Magnificent! Here she MANGLES the english language with the fantastic phrase, "you know how much i care it". It is a critique of western culture's superficiality when it comes to love and affection, And at the same time, she bends it to her own will and expression. We expect her to use a term such as Love, but instead she uses Care, playing hard to get and once again demonstrating her laser-like wit.
