Bishonen desu ne? / How Cute Is Your Son?

Apology: the original version of this post was too long and too confusing. Hopefully, this one is more enjoyable.

Helen, please check that your son is okay to share this post with you. There are things in here that he might not think funny at all. Or he might....


How Cute Is Your Son?
[to the music of How Deep Is Your Love, the BeeGees and latterly, Take That]


(Haa….aa…. )

A broody son, of that you had no doubt
So surly that girls would just run away
You were worried he was gay, but then he came right out
And said, ‘Dear mother, meet some of my friends’

And on the web / it became quite clear
That your son / proud but wrong / yes the surly one
He has girlfriends far and near
Bishonen desu ne / (Bishonen, your son is ka-waii)
Now that you really know
Nothing now will ever be the same
‘Cute’ is his name
And they all won’t let him be
Nothing ever comes for free

Now the worry starts
These are the worst fears in your heart of hearts
How the grumpy boy who got by on not much stew
Will handle women that are kawaii too.

And on the web it / became quite clear
That your son / always wrong / yes the broody one
He has girlfriends far and near
Bishonen desu ne / (Bishonen, your son is ka-waii)
Now that you really know
Nothing now will ever be the same
He’s changed his game
We should all have known of course
They’ll be knocking down the doors

[guitar solo]
[Bishonen, kawaii desu….]

And on the web / it was very clear
That your son / never wrong / yet the grumpy one
Has a fan club you can fear
Bishonen desu ne / (Bishonen, your son is ka-waii)
Three hundred friends and more
Nothing now will ever be the same
Who is to blame
We’re all scared he has no brain
Please God, make him brood again (doo-do-do-do-doo)

Haaa..(How) kawaii is your son, kawaii is your son,
Still you know this could be worse
He could dress in sequins and wear furs
Had surgery
Yes the kind that makes guys girls
Then he’ll say he’s wearing pearls (doo-do-do-do-doo, Bishonen desu ne?)

How kawaii is your son, bishonen desu ne? (doo-do-do-doo, Bishonen desu ne?)
How kawaii is your son, bishonen desu ne? (doo-do-do-doo, Bishonen desu ne?)

Glossary (prink speaku Yapunis):

Bishonen desu, ne? : Hensem guy, no?
Kawaii: Cute.

Sub-disclaimer: I don't actually speak Japanese, so anyone out there with real definitions, help, please? It'd be very embarrassing if I've actually written, 'Guy who looks and smells like rancid camel cheese,' instead....

Sorry, sorry! Have reposted with transration.
I think 'Bishonen desu ne?' means 'Lengjai or not?'
Too much TungKu is probably right: trying to squeeze so many things into one post probably wasn't too good an idea.
Does anyone remember Take That's MTVideo for How Deep Is Your Love?
Haiyah, if too teruk, I'll have to re-edit the post again and leave just the song.
