Pretty Fly (For Battousai) by: Kagayaki Ame

(An adaptation of The Offspring’s Pretty Fly (For A White Guy)

 

[Kaoru, Misao, and Megumi in hot pants and halter-tops]

Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh

[Kenshin in Ghetto-gear... if you can imagine that]

And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly for Battousai

 

Ichi ni san yottsu go itsutsu mu


You know its kinda hard not to kill someone today
Our subject is real cool, so he makes it anyway
He has a sakabatou, he uses all the while
And any move he lacks, ain’t the Mitsurugi style!


So don't debate, don’t underestimate!
You knew he was gonna beat ‘em anyway!
Gonna walk the field, keep it real
For ten years straight, for ten years straight
So if you don't break, just over compensate
At least you know he’ll be doing laundry until late
The world needs Battousai
Hey, hey, do So Ryu Sen!

 

[The girls again]
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh

 

[Kenshin… Still in Ghetto-Gear]
And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly for Battousai


He needs some cool moves, not just any will suffice
He knew the battou jutsu, Hirameki would be nice
While cruising thru Kyoto, he sees Hiko as he pass
Now that he knows the secret, he’s gon’ kick some Juppon ass!!


So don't deflate, play it straight
You know he really doesn't give a shit today
Gonna walk the field, keep it real
For ten years straight, for ten years straight
So if you don't break, just over compensate
At least you know he’ll be kicking ass until real late
The world loves Battousai
Hey, hey, do Ryu Kan Sen!

Now he's got a cross shaped scar yeah, he's only got the one
He didn’t ask for it, but, hey, what’s done is done
Now he’s got a lot of friends and not feelin’ quite as lonely
But in his own mind he's still the, “Sessha wa Rurouni”

 

[The Girls- shakin’ that ass]
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh
Give it to me baby, uh huh, uh huh

 

[Kenshin- ghetto Gear and all]
And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly for Battousai


Ichi ni san yottsu go itsutsu mu


So don't deflate, play it straight
You know he only wants Kaoru in one way
Gonna walk the field, keep it real
For ten years straight, for ten years straight
So if you don't break, just over compensate
At least you know he can kick some ass on any day
The world needs Battousai
The world loves Battousai
Only room for one Battousai
Hey, hey, do Tsui Sho Sen!

The numbers: They actually translate to one two three four five six six in English making it Uno, dos, tres, quarto, cinco, seis, seis in Spanish which is not how the offspring song goes (uno dos tres quarto cinco cinco seis) but I had to do that because of the amount of syllables in some of the Japanese Romanji… in case you were wondering.
