I saw a young man by a telephone He was sitting alone in the rain I said, hey, young man what you doing here? He said, sir, I'm going insane
See I love an american beauty But nobody here understands So he looked to the sky with resentment in his eyes And said, lord, why am I in japan? Lord why am I in japan?
He told me a story about yesterday How he walked in the search of a friend But nobody came to his rescue So he came to his bitter end
He pulled me close and said They all stopped and stared As I walked down the street alone And nobody knew my name Nobody knew my name
I said, young man I know where you're going And young man I know where you've been But I've been in this land for a lifetime, it seems, And I'm never to come back again No, I'm never to come back again
So I turned and I gave him my blessing And I left him alone in the rain But I had to just stop and laugh at myself Still nobody knows my name Nobody knows my name
