"If I Were A Groupie" as written by and Yashuharu Konishi Maki Nomiya....
"I'm a groupie."

"Hey look. Look at the boy on TV. I mean the half naked boy with makeup on, biting his nails. I've known him a very long time. Yeah, we shared a few good laughs. See he was a lover of this guy who used to be a bass player in this band. God I went everywhere with them. I knew the singer of the band as well. He had a beautiful voice, a sweet voice you know? Sad too. I wonder where everyone has gone. They used to be so crazy about me. I don't know maybe I was their muse or something. I'd watch them write songs all night long..."

moshimo watashi ga
groupie dattara
high school no koro ni
tokidoki kangaeta

(what if I
were a groupie,
when I was in high school
I sometimes thought about it)

If I were a groupie
If I were a you girl
If I were a groupie
If I were a groupie

"I'm a groupie."
"It's a full time thing because you have to be out till 4 o'clock in the morning!"

"In those days I had so many friends. I don't know where they are now. They've all gone now, you know, just gone? One by one, people dropping away. I had this best friend once who followed the band all over the country. She was friends with the roadie and she went everywhere. Yeah, those were the days..."

moshimo watashi ga
groupie dettara
imagoro wa doko de dare to
kurashiteru na kashira

(what if I
were a groupie
where would I be and who with
I wonder)

If I were a groupie
If I were a you girl
If I were a groupie
If I were a groupie

"Everyone knew me then, and me always watching from backstage. They were my boys. The best thing that ever happened to me was when this guy gave me a ride in a helicopter. We were going to the club where they were having their gig. And there were all these lights in this tiny car. Beautiful. I had the time of my life, I think..."

If I were a groupie
If I were a you girl
If I were a groupie
If I were a groupie

"I haven't found a good band to follow around for years. All true rockers die young, you know they say that. I guess what we groupies go for now are millionaires or young politician types. Yeah I haven't been too good for a long time now. Sometimes I look through this box of pictures I've kept of the times we all hung out, you know? God, bottles of champagne everywhere, lipstick and wigs. So many parties in hotel rooms and empty warehouses. And all these people have this look in their eyes, you know? That I didn't see then I suppose? This look that says we're young and we're crazy and we're hungry for something."

moshimo watashi ga
groupie dattara
bed no naka de
tokidoki kangaeru

(what if I
were a groupie
when I lie in bed
I sometimes think about it)

If I were a groupie
If I were a you girl
If I were a groupie
If I were a groupie
