Note: "Pleasure ~Jinsei no Kairaku~" has become the theme of the Pleasure LIVE-GYM concerts and is something of a unique entity in the B'z catalogue in that its lyrics have evolved and changed over time with new iterations. Primarily, the first line of the song and the lines immediately following the first chorus differ in the new versions, along with some altered backing vocals later in the song. This ongoing story is captured in the song's many renditions, of which only three have been released on CD (1991, 1998, and 2008) with the rest available from live performances. In addition, a version of "Pleasure" has been played at every Pleasure LIVE-GYM to date apart from the 1993 and 1997 editions.

Lyrics in red are those that are different from other versions.

Japanese

一晩中ギターと女の裸で盛り上がってたあいつも
そつなく大手に就職決まりためらいがちの出世街道

重いマーシャル運んでた腰の痛み
まだ覚えてるの

いつのまにかこの街に 丸め込まれたのは僕?
居心地いいと笑ってる そんな余裕はいらないのかな…

あいつもとうとうひとりになった月曜日の夜 よってたかって
しょうがねえやつだなんて からかいながらだれもが我が身 ふりかえる
イエス、自分は間違ってない
この先の浮き沈みも歌えば楽し

いつのまにかこの街に 丸め込まれたのは君?
「もし生まれ変わったら」 なんて 目を輝かせて言ってたくない
勝手知ったる少ない仲間と 敵だ味方だとさわいでる
止まれないこの世界で 胸を張って生きるしかない

いつのまにかこの街に 丸め込まれるのは誰?
くだらなかったあの頃に 戻りたい戻りたくない (FUCK ME, BABY)
怖いものはありますか? 守るものはありますか?
止まれないこの世界で 胸を張って生きるしかない

English

The guy who's been enjoying himself with guitars and naked women all night long
He's taken a job at a big firm and is on his unclear path to success

The pain you went through carrying all those heavy Marshall amps...
Do you still remember it?

Is it me that's suddenly become entangled in this town?
When I'm comfortable, I smile—I don't have time for such things...

He became lonely on a Monday night and suddenly felt the need to get drunk
Everybody will remember him as a useless bum in anger
Yes, I'm not mistaken
If you can sing about both the ups and downs in the future, it'll all be fun

Is it you that's suddenly become entangled in this town?
I don't want to say things like, "What if I'm reborn?" with a glow in my eyes
I'm worried whether the few colleagues I hardly know are friend or foe
In this never-ending world, there's no other way but to keep your head up and continue living

Who is it that's suddenly become entangled in this town?
I'm not sure whether I want to go back to those foolish days or not (FUCK ME, BABY)
Do you have fears? Do you have things to protect?
In this never-ending world, there's no other way but to keep your head up and continue living
