わたしのイエスマン

Yes man, 笑う.
Yes man, 現る.
Yes man, 走る.
Yes man, それ飛ぶ.
 
ね、あれやって?
ね、これもやって。
ね、あれ勝手?
ね、これも勝手。
 
「Yes yes yes yes.」
ごめんね、yes man.
私の yes man.
 
あなたの能は、
私が食べた。
意志も気よくも、
すべてがわたし。

Looks like I solved my own translation request. Just took two years of on-and-off learning!
Translator's Note: It's worth noting that the narrator of the song does not use "polite" Japanese verb forms and such! This makes sense, given that the "Yes Man" is probably subordinate to the narrator, given what a Yes Man is. But I figured it was worth noting anyways.

Hey, do this
Hey, also do that

I ate your "no"
Your desires and memories as well
All of it is now me

来たそう,私の... seems like an error also. It should be きたぞ わたしの.

Yes man, それ飛ぶ. is also wrong. It should be イエスマン そらとぶ

I think there's more errors. Better check my URL.

Thanks, your comments have been very helpful. I'll take a look.

I think I comment too much. but,

「happy」 -> 肺 (not sure if this is "はい" as in "yes", or lung)

This is "はい". Not lung.
"Your YES is my breathing."

How did you know it was はい and not 肺? はい definitely makes more sense in this context but just wondering. Also, please keep commenting if something is wrong! I think it's fair to say without your source lyrics, this translation wouldn't have been possible. Thank you.

I also thought it fits context. It's not 100%. It's true it can consist both lung and YES. But, it is unusual to write ハイ for lung (very rare case)
And, she uses ノー for "No". She seems like to use katakana for YES and NO.
"please keep commenting if something is wrong!" I really appreciate this! Because everybody thinks I am arguing their artistic works Regular smile
No, I'm not sarcastic! I want to be help and your welcome!
