On April 21st, I officially became a steel tooth maiden
Pulled 4 teeth out and also have to suffer for 2 years
I don't wanna become Lil Wayne
Yah... Way-way-wayne

I think I'm pretty fly and also pretty weird
Can only eat tofu, can't chew greens
I start to take selfies, found out I can't purse my lips
Other than smiling, can't make any other expressions

Like to look in the mirror even more than before
See all the bits of food stuck in the gaps
Start to learn how to pick teeth
After picking, still gotta brush
Look carefully
Damn, how come there's still food bits!

Train tracks installed within my mouth
Saliva will drip out
All the guys have been scared away
Not like a pig, more like a monster
Luckily, I don't give a hoot
Damn, who am I!

Oral ulcers can't defeat me
The things I wanna eat, can't chew 'em
Even if I gotta swallow it whole, I wanna eat my fill
After eating my fill, wanna sleep
In my dreams I'm a beauty, show my teeth and smile for all I'm worth

I'm a rap star
But my enunciation isn't clear
This way there's a shot for me to become a superstar
I'm a rap star
But my enunciation isn't clear
This way there's a shot, just call me Steel Tooth Jing

There are many trendy people like me
They’re timid and bashful
Not swag enough
There's a lot I wanna say
So much, but can't keep talking
Because my mouth has been scraped raw

Title: 钢牙妹日记
Artist: 呆宝静
Link: https://streetvoice.cn/joeslowlyman/songs/79792/
Translation: https://www.notion.so/8f69163cfef949809a63251f54c91873

Chinese lyrics

4月21正式成为钢牙妹
拔了四个牙还要再受两年罪
我不想当Lil Wayne
Yah... Way-way-wayne

我觉得自己很帅也很怪
只能吃豆腐,啃不动青菜
我开始自拍,发现嘴唇抿不到一块
除了笑 摆不出其它的神态

比原来更爱照镜子
看到菜渣钻满了空子
开始学人剔牙
剔完了还要刷
仔细一看
靠,怎么还有菜渣!

我嘴里铺了铁轨
会流口水
男生都被我吓得倒退
不像猪,倒更像鬼
幸好我无所谓
册,我是谁!!

口腔溃疡不能把我打倒
想吃的啃不了
就算生吞我也要吃饱
吃饱了想睡觉
梦里我是美女,露牙使劲笑

我是说唱明星
口齿却不清
这样才有机会成为巨星
我是说唱明星
口齿却不清
这样才有机会,快叫我钢牙静

像我这么拉风的人很多
畏畏缩缩
不够洒脱
我想说的有很多
很多,却不能继续说
因为嘴皮子已被磨破

If we suddenly turned into 2 cowpies
On the grasslands baking in the sun, start to kiss
Around us are pretty wildflowers
Above us are fluffy white clouds

If we suddenly turned into 2 cowpies
On the grasslands, a cool breeze blowing, just like elopement
Before our eyes are charming flying bugs
Below us are cute earthworms

If we suddenly turned into 2 cowpies
Then we can simply escape from the rat race?
No longer would we have to strive so hard
To maintain 2 flesh and blood bodies
Don’t need to spend money to buy rice, build savings, get married

If we suddenly turned into 2 cowpies
On the grasslands, a cool breeze blowing, just like elopement
Before our eyes are charming flying bugs
Below us are cute earthworms

If we suddenly turned into 2 cowpies
Then we can settle into a free and carefree existence?
We’d no longer need to force ourselves
To face all kinds of foolishness
Or use various ideologies to question each other

If we suddenly turned into 2 cowpies
Once time blows dry the water from our bodies
You ask what tomorrow’s plan is
I tell you stories to entertain you

Title: 牛粪

Chinese lyrics

如果我们忽然变成两坨牛粪
在草原上晒着太阳,开始接吻
身边是漂亮的野花啊
头顶是柔软的白云

如果我们忽然变成两坨牛粪
在草原上吹着清风如同私奔
眼前是妩媚的飞虫啊
身下是可爱的蚯蚓

如果我们忽然变成两坨牛粪
是不是就可以单纯地远离人群
我们再也不用千方百计
供养两具肉身
也不用花钱买米攒钱结婚

如果我们忽然变成两坨牛粪
在草原上吹着清风如同私奔
眼前是妩媚的飞虫啊
身下是可爱的蚯蚓

如果我们忽然变成两坨牛粪
是不是就可以逍遥地自我安顿
我们再也不用硬着头皮
面对各种愚笨
也不用各种主义相互追问

如果我们忽然变成两坨牛粪
等时间风干我们身上的水分
你问我明天的打算
我给你讲故事解闷

Mosquitoes, mosquitoes, saying buzz buzz
Bite little kids until they’re covered in bumps
I’m willing to turn into a toad
To eat them all up

My clothes are very crude
My reputation isn’t as good as the frog’s
No little kids like me
It doesn’t bother me, and I’m not vexed

蚊子蚊子嗡嗡叫

也没有青蛙名声好
小朋友们都不爱我

I want to sell you to the zoo
Look at that monkey-like face of yours
I want to sell you to the zoo
Let people point and gesticulate at you every day

I want to sell you to the zoo
You’ll very soon feel the consequence of offending me
I want to sell you to the zoo
May you only have banana peels for every meal

I want to sell you to the zoo
My dad’s friend’s family just happens to run a zoo
He says price and other things are all negotiable
You’ll stay here to thoroughly self-reflect on your apology to me

I want to sell you to the zoo
Every day can only drink dirty water and walk around your enclosure
Freedom will never again be part of your life
Happiness and blessings will both be far away

I want to sell you to the zoo
You’ll forever be part of the background imagery in group photos
The level of suffering has no limit, there is seemingly no end
Even you will have forgotten your own smiling face

I want to sell you to the zoo
Look at that monkey-like face of yours
I want to sell you to the zoo
Let people point and gesticulate at you every day

I want to sell you to the zoo
You’ll very soon feel the consequence of offending me
I want to sell you to the zoo
May you only have banana peels for every meal

I want to sell you to the zoo
My dad’s friend’s family just happens to run a zoo
He says price and other things are all negotiable
You’ll stay here to thoroughly self-reflect on your apology to me

Chinese lyrics

我要把你卖到动物园
你看看⾃己那张像猴子的脸
我要把你卖到动物园
让人们每天对你指指又点点

我要把你卖到动物园
得罪我的下场你马上就会亲⾝体验
我要把你卖到动物园
让你每天只能吃⾹蕉皮当作餐点

我要把你卖到动物园
刚好我爸的朋友家里就开动物园
他说价钱什么的都好谈
你就在这里头好好反省跟我道歉

我要把你卖到动物园
每天只能喝脏⽔,原地兜圈
⾃由跟你的⼈生再也没有关联
快乐和幸福都将离你很远

我要把你卖到动物园
永远当别人合照背景画⾯
痛苦无止尽,仿佛没有终点
连⾃己都忘了⾃己的笑脸

我要把你卖到动物园
你看看⾃己那张像猴子的脸
我要把你卖到动物园
让人们每天对你指指又点点

我要把你卖到动物园
得罪我的下场你马上就会亲⾝体验
我要把你卖到动物园
让你每天只能吃⾹蕉皮当作餐点

我要把你卖到动物园
刚好我爸的朋友家里就开动物园
他说价钱什么的都好谈
你就在这里头好好反省跟我道歉

The world is so big, yet so far I’ve only been to Southeast Asia
All around is yellow skin and black hair
The world is so big, I really wanna go to other countries
Boyfriend and girlfriend, walk along unfamiliar streets

Unfamiliar kitty, unfamiliar dog
Unfamiliar old person touching my head
Unfamiliar girl saying “thank you” to me
When you think it’s the right time
Please notify me, I’m ready to go
Wherever you say, I’ll nod in assent

The world is so big, where should I wait in line to meet you?
We’re so insignificant, every encounter is also a missed opportunity
The world is so big, where is my real home?
Ai, keep looking as you go, time will give an answer

Unfamiliar kitty, unfamiliar dog
Unfamiliar old person touching my head
Unfamiliar girl saying “thank you” to me
When you think it’s the right time
Please notify me, I’m ready to go
Wherever you say, I’ll nod in assent

Taking you to listen to your favorite song
Listened through half the song and your makeup is running
For you, recalling the past is torment
My heart also feels bitter

Hear the familiar song and you cry
I know you thought of him again
I see you feel sad, but I don’t know what to do
I just want to be able to make you happy

Just like this, listening to an old song, tears streaming
The lyrics seem to be talking about you and me
This song is sung in a heart wrenching way, goes deep into our hearts
Listening to the song, I‘ll also be slowly humming along

Hear the familiar song and you cry
I know you thought of him again
I see you feel sad, but I don’t know what to do
I just want to be able to make you happy

Just like this, listening to an old song, tears streaming

This song is sung in a heart wrenching way, goes deep into our hearts
Listening to the song, I‘ll also be slowly humming along

Time dilutes memories so that we can’t go back
Your past self, did she think about how
Back then, I liked serenading you

An old song moves you to tears
Thinking of whether there’s an old song that’s always been on the radio up to now

Just like this, listening to an old song, tears streaming
The lyrics seem to be talking about you and me
This song is sung in a heart wrenching way, goes deep into our hearts
Listening to the song, I‘ll also be slowly humming along
Listening to the song, I‘ll also be slowly humming along
Listening to the song, I‘ll also be slowly humming along

I want to slowly grow up
No matter how the world changes
I’m already prepared to carefully savor
All the joy and sorrow I’ll be given

Don’t get anxious, don’t panic, don’t be afraid of disappointment
Don’t always busy yourself with other people’s expectations
Wait until you understand the world, then give it your all to fight against it
Afterwards, embrace it without reservation

I want to slowly grow up
No matter how the world changes
I want to become a better me
I want to joyfully sing a song for myself

I like to sleep on the train
AC is cool, no one sitting next to me, it's the best
I like to sleep on the train
Dreaming while running forward

Dududududu,
Train is rocking to and fro
Dadadadada,
Smell of boxed meals is wafting, wafting, wafting
Even though I’m wearing a mask, my stomach keeps growling
All I can do is hold my bag tightly
Keep sleeping, sleep more

Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
Wake, wake, wake, wake
Stop, stop, stop
Go, go, go
Everyone has a place they’re going towards

Sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep
Wake, wake, wake, wake
Stop, stop, stop
Go, go, go
Everyone has their own view

I like to sleep on the train
Sit in an aisle seat, easy to go pee, that's the best
I like to sleep on the train
Book ticket in advance to avoid worries

Hey newcomer
I hear you’re stronger than me
Can run around the whole mountain in a single breath

But I
Can’t help but entrust you with some things

Owner’s driving skills are somewhat wild
Everyone calls him Dad
Gotta get used to sudden bursts of speed from rheumatic legs
And sustained, off-pitch singing

You have to get used to this family’s hubbub
They never let their voices rest
As for me, I’ve also got a nickname
Everybody’s been calling me

Dad’s junker
Rumbling along
I’ve seen countless landscapes
I’ve passed through nights and dawns

Dad’s junker
The king of the country roads
Fishing rods fill up the trunk
For music, there’s only this worn-out CD

Lalalalalala

In my body are
Little cigarette butts that are afraid of being discovered

I’ve encountered
Dad in the middle of the night
Giving himself encouragement

Little owner will open the sunroof when nobody’s looking
Straining to stick his head out like a dummy
Waving his long and skinny arms around
Want to catch the autumn wind
Don’t go too fast

Mom will drive me to go picnicking
Likes to share food with her friends
Judging from their expressions
Her cooking skills are very average

Dad’s junker
Traveler of time
I’ve seen report cards with red letters
I’ve smelled every breakfast

Dad’s junker
Now I’m a bit slow
I was once so impressive
The black ox by the field would actively get out of the way

Hear me prattle on for so long
My feelings about the past 15 years
Today is the end of my service

OK, I pass the torch to you
Please take my place and start anew
I’ll put the safety of this family in your hands

Dad’s junker
Rumbling along
I’ve laid in yellow sand and sludge
I’ve endured typhoons and torrential rains

Dad’s junker
The last drive
Hope you’re even stronger than me
Run along
Newcomer
Run along
Run along

Today, hen teacher will teach everyone how to fly
Look at how I’m doing it, this way you can dodge the eagle’s attack

Little chicks go zhazhajiji (sound of chirping), discussing at length; Teacher, may we ask, what’s an eagle?
Dummy, it’s basically a very big, very violent chicken. Is it more violent than me? Look at my punch!

Hen teacher realizes that shaving their feathers is popular among the chicks
They shave both sides; hen angrily says:
If there’s danger, how will you fly, how will you escape? Chicks impatiently say:

Why is what you say correct, do you have any evidence to back up what you say?
Why is what you do correct, could it be that you’ve eaten more rice than me?

Hen felt disheartened, so she resolved to change herself
Studiously build up her self confidence, become a star, put out a CD

Oh crap, the eagle figured out when school lets out, with a screech it dived out of the sky
But the chicks had already shaved both sides, no one had feathers, no one could escape

Receive a ransom phone call, without money the hostages will be killed
Hen teacher decides to rescue the chicks on her own
Brought weapons and all the feed, no fear of the danger

Sneakily crawl up to the eagle’s nest, head towards the sound of chicks sobbing
Oh no, the eagle caught her dead to rights, it stared with its big eyes and yelled:

I’m your fan, I have your CD
I’ve been to all your shows, please give me an autograph
Thus the eagle left completely satisfied, the chicks reverently said:

Incredibly, everything you said was correct; I’m sorry; please forgive and accept my past
Incredibly, everything you did was right, did not discern that your every action had a motivation

The wind blows her hair into disarray
It also pulls her shadow apart
Really wish it would take me along too
I don’t care if it’s only to idle time away
She says there’s a treasure in my heart
No matter what, don’t let it be destroyed
Since I fly with the wind
I don’t need to let my feet touch the ground

The wind blows
Time go back
Look, look
All the things from the past are here
The big world, does it dazzle the eyes?
It’s just, it’s just that I
Can’t ever find you again

The wind blows wrinkles into her hand
Still wish she would hold my hand for a slow walk
Walk into warm, golden-hued old days
Back then I feared neither heaven nor earth

The wind blows
Time go back
Look, look
All the things from the past are here
The big world, I’ll go there too
Wait, wait
After I’ve walked this path I’ll come

I’m still drinking her jasmine tea
I’m still singing the songs she listened to
Until her inexplicable worries become mine
Her kindness also becomes mine

The wind blows
The wind blows
Would you travel day and night
Brave the wind and waves to come into my dreams?

The wind blows my hair into disarray
I know you’re here
The next time I see you in the spring light
Please don’t leave me behind again

Would you travel day and night
Brave the wind and waves to come into my dreams?

I’ve never understood your sense of humor
So I stay silent, don’t speak much, rarely open my mouth, awkwardly smile
I’ve never understood your sense of humor
So I act aloof, it’s not like I haven’t said it before, you just can’t seem to understand

I’ve never appreciated your sense of humor, not even once
You desperately try to amuse me, act like a clown
Stop trying to amuse me, don’t think about changing me, while I still treat you as a friend
I’ve never appreciated your sense of humor, now and forever
Your remarks go too far, make jokes turn into nightmares
Stop following me, don’t think about persuading me, makes it difficult for both of us

I’ve never understood your sense of humor
So I dodge, keep a poker face, lower my head, don’t make eye contact
I’ve never understood your sense of humor
I just don’t get it, we’re clearly the same sign, why is there such a difference?

I’ve never understood your sense of humor

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

I like taking selfies, no matter the stage
Take my equipment along, take it out at anytime
Show it off, look at how cool my pics are
Everyone’s in the frame, no one’s left out

Everyone smile, smile, don’t be squinting
If someone is, let’s do it again
Oh you want to understand how I made this progress
But there’s no chance, please don’t be jealous of me

Camera angle, feel like it comes from India
Could be confused for a technique used by astronauts
Oh I really don’t care about the feng shui
When I take a picture, I’ll show you how pretty it is

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

Let’s get a selfie, take out my cell phone
Randomly take pics, as long as it’s interesting
Everybody, look at me my flash here
Passersby mistake me for a tourist

Keep shooting, shooting, shooting like a paparazzi
When it’s time to eat, I’m still photoshopping
Friends complain that I’m not paying attention
Post the photo and tagged the restaurant

Maybe this is an inherited trait
Whenever there’s food, I’ll shoot to my heart’s content
It’s a habit I picked up when I came to Taiwan
No matter what it’s always 1-2-3

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

Selfies, no one can beat me
If you look at my pictures, you’ll definitely get mad
Because they’re too hot, you’ll be intimidated to the core
Curious as to how this girl got so talented

Too awesome, no need for beauty filters
Every group pic is super stable
Just after getting up, there’ll be 120+ shots
Doing it everywhere, I’m the selfie queen

Grab you and make you join in my selfie craze
Repeatedly update Facebook status
Hey, you’re suddenly left speechless
Post a pic, look how big my bosom is

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

I like taking selfies, don’t care where I do it
I like taking selfies, I photobomb on purpose
I like taking selfies, if it’s blurry I try again
I just like taking selfies, let’s take one together

From the lake surface, a fish lightly leaps out
Wandering journey, who got lost?
Wind penetrates bone, wet shoes, dew on grass
Fell in love with roughing it, go towards sunset

The moon is as before, ancient from the start
Pass through mountain and valley, stumble upon a deer
Hope I can know why I go through this hardship
Hope it doesn't know where the tears are

Hope life is resilient enough
Put myself through days and nights of loneliness
Let the wind carry me to some place
Afterwards, I'm unable to leave some place

Hope life is resilient enough
Put myself through days and nights of loneliness
Let the wind carry me to some place
Afterwards, I'm unable to leave some place

Hope loneliness is complete enough
Lend me simplicity in spades
Love this world's warm things
On the roadside, halt my steps for the twilight clouds

Let the wind carry me to some place
Afterwards, I'm unable to leave some place

Keep driving north on Highway 1
The sun occasionally hiding itself away from view
Partly sunny, partly rainy
Keep going forward, don't drive too fast

At the end of Highway 62
Lift your head and you'll see the ocean
Stick to the coast and turn right
The sea wind blows, clouds move so fast
When you reach Dongding Road, turn right
Keep going along winding mountain roads

Na lu wan na yi lu wan
Hoi yi ya na yi na ya
Na lu wan na yi na yi ya
Na lu wan na yi na ya

People that you brushed past
Light is on, but door is locked
Mountains and seas of the northeastern corner
Layers of cloud and mist spread out
People who get lost are left out
Below the stairs with 23 steps lies the answer

Na lu wan na yi lu wan
Hoi yi ya na yi na ya
Na lu wan na yi na yi ya
Na lu wan na yi na ya

It's raining cats and dogs, don't leave again
Drink coffee, listen to a concert

Open inbox, it's full of messages about cancelled events
All of our rehearsals, toss them into the ocean
(I'm so poor, no work, eat dirt!!)
An unlucky year, everyone needs to be careful
To survive, work for Uber Eats

Quarantine at home, isolate at home, practice self-discipline
Idiots running around, get your butts back home
(Idiots, get your butts back home)
Still have face masks, you ought to be grateful
(Please, got it)
We should listen to Shizhong’s words; we believe in you, Lijun

(Give us some financial bailouts)
We’ve prepared a new work
(We released a new album)
But we can’t sell any at all
(But you can buy swag)
Everyone’s stockpiling goods, we're stockpiling albums
Next month’s rent, how to keep living?

Performers that eat dirt
Performers that eat dirt
No one’s got it good, everyone feels terrible
I’m also not overstating how poor I am

Performers that eat dirt
Performers that eat dirt
After this is over, if we could invite you to see one more performance
For our next meal, add an extra piece of meat

Everyone’s got it rough
Hope everyone’s OK
Can’t keep going on like this
Let it be over soon!

For our next meal, add an extra piece of meat

Every time the music starts
Always fall under a spell
Enter a dreamlike world
Everything becomes magical

Every time the music starts
Want to fall under a spell
Dreamlike world is so beautiful
Wish to stay there

The music starts
See sincere faces
The music starts
See kind-hearted faces

The music starts
See beautiful faces
The music starts
Without realizing it, face is full of tears

Every time the music starts
State of mind slowly becomes tranquil
Calm, unrestricted breaths
Joy comes into my heart

The music starts
Touch sincere faces
The music starts
Touch kind-hearted faces

The music starts
Touch beautiful faces
The music starts
Joy spreads across my face
The music starts

Red windowsill, light taps
June rain hits palm-leaf fan
Blue umbrella, white canvas sail
Boat in the river

Like an impenetrable tank
Blasting all passersby that are in the way
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

Like a freakin’ awesome tank
Rolling over and crushing all uncalled-for advice
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

One after another fired shell passes though time and space
Fired towards the ocean, stirs up a wave
That wave is the ocean’s derisive laughter
Laughing at me, a tank with false bravado

One after another fired shell passes though a cluster of flowers
Burned a patch of spring scenery in the countryside
That was a bloom of tender affection for me
Fondness of me for being a hypocritical tank

Like a stupid-ass tank
Intimidating all the small and weak personalities
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

Like an impenetrable tank
Blasting all passersby that are in the way
Who knows that the small person inside the tank
Is so powerless and weak?

No more comets streaking across the universe
No more sunlight to dazzle the afternoon
No more people to sing the praises of freedom
We all boarded this ship
How far can it fly?
The people I love
Say farewell to you

I fly into the universe
Drift towards doomsday
Forgive my mistakes
All absurdities
Fade away behind that nebula

I fly towards the universe
Away from this flood
Let it go
Leave it all behind
Give yourself a shot of
The gentlest revenge

Monologue spoken in Old Florentine

I fly into the universe
Can I be saved
After saying farewell
Freedom and conquest
Were both utterly destroyed at the end

I fly into the universe
Drift towards doomsday
Redeem my mistakes
All absurdities
Fade away behind that nebula

I fly towards the universe
Away from this flood
Finally, I’m the only one left
I have nothing
Doomsday spaceship
Carries my bones

Camellia flower’s thick leaves embrace her, keeping her warm
Camellia flower rolled inside the bud, hiding her bashful face
Gentle wind caressing her
Gaze at morning mist, smile upon sunset clouds
These mountains and rivers culminate in her stamen, slowly alchemize

By mountain streams, grow up bathing in sunlight
She’s swaying and dancing in the wind
Blooming into white blossoms by the cliff
She’s stirring up the fragrant soil

After the rain, talk to rainbows
Wind blows dry the dewdrops on her cheeks
Unfolding the painting of autumn
Even if the season is changing, why worry?

Camellia flower dreams of a pair of wings, let’s take flight tonight
As the first snow drifts down, camellia flower’s petals fly away on the wind

In my distant memory, there was a long-forgotten poem, it went like this
Courtyard abrim with flowers and trees, on the outside a small, fragrant path
Side by side for four seasons, cut paper together on sunny days

When I was very very little, there was once a siheyuan (enclosed courtyard compound)
There lived myself and Nainai, along with a colorful cat
Back then, the small courtyard was full of flowers, underneath the stairs was green grass
My tiny hands held a book of 300 Tang and Song Dynasty poems

Nainai would teach me how to recite them, "white goose cranes its neck toward heaven and sings"
Once the sun was bright, she’d also teach me paper cutting
That’s the most unforgettable part of my past, it often appears in my dreams
So afterwards when I learned how to write, I wrote this poem

Courtyard abrim with flowers and trees, on the outside a small, fragrant path
Side by side for four seasons, cut paper together on sunny days

We aren’t named Xiaojuan
Pseudonym is our last line of defense
News about society, sensationalized headlines
Photos with both eyes pixelated

Nightingale becomes mute, you all put in a lot of effort
Those who dare to disobey, they're always being punished
By fist, by gasoline, by sulfuric acid
By head-shaving, by glares, by keyboards

At the end, how will we be recorded by you?
Quarrel, traitor, demon, whore, frequent prostitutes, commit adultery, prostitute, prostitute, slave
Deceive, greedy, sycophantic, absurd, play, resent, hinder, jealousy, envy
Contempt on display, embed into skulls

Hide my name, forget my name
The same tragedy keeps getting acted out
Imprison my body, sever my tongue
Silently embroider my tears into silks and satins

Oh~~~
Flush into the sewer, from the bridal chamber sink into the riverbed
Stuff full the suitcase, store in the balcony freezer
In the school, in the factory, by the side of the road
The “good place” chosen by the one who shares your bed

At the end, how will you subdue us?
Quarrel, traitor, demon, whore, frequent prostitutes, commit adultery, prostitute, prostitute, slave
Deceive, greedy, sycophantic, absurd, play, resent, hinder, jealousy, envy
Spirit circumcised, merge into blood and bone

Hide my name, forget my name
The same tragedy keeps getting acted out
Imprison my body, sever my tongue
Silently embroider my tears into silks and satins

Oh~~~
We aren’t named Xiaojuan
Pseudonym is the last dignity we get
Over tea and meals, topics to idly chat about
Quickly toss them to the side

Know my name, remember my name
The same tragedy, when will it finally stop?
Lay my body to rest, smoothen my brow
Silently use tears to wipe clean my gravestone

Know my name, remember my name
The same tragedy, why does it continue?
Bury my beautiful dream, sew up my spirit
Silently use tears to inscribe my gravestone
Oh~~~

I’m sitting alone in Kathmandu, in a hotel opened by a Chinese person
As always, breakfast is rice porridge, fried dough, salted veggies, and soy milk
The air here is horrible, dust flying upwards
People aren’t so friendly either
I don’t want to talk, don’t dare to talk, and don’t know what to say
Maybe if you were by my side, I’d have more to say

Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
You need at least one person to take pictures for you
Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
Looking at the passing scenery makes me very lonely

I see a rhinoceros, a crocodile, elephants, and a gay couple
One of them often flashes me smile, making me anxious
You say you studied English for so long and look what it's good for
In the end, you don’t dare to speak and don’t know what to say
Maybe if you were around, I’d have more to say

Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
I’m very aware of my own forgetfulness
Why’d you have to travel solo, why’d you have to travel solo
Looking at the passing scenery makes me very lonely
During lonely times, gotta resist temptations

In my heart, spring's flowers bloom
I wait for my sparrow to slowly come home
Frog by the river, it goes gugua gugua
Look beneath the grass and lotus leaves

Clouds on the horizon keep growing and growing
Just like cotton candy, I want to eat them up
Hibernating people once again start to go jiji and zhazha
You see, spring is back, how did it come back?

Clouds on the horizon keep growing and growing

Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (lang li ge lang li ge lang li ge lang)
Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (lang li ge lang li ge lang li ge lang)
Check out spring's hundred flower fragrances (get spruced up and go find some girls)
That's beng beng guang guang dang dang bang bang guang guang (sound of cooking with wok)

Spring returns, little sparrows fly back from the south
Spring returns, peach blossoms, apricot blossoms, pear blossoms all bloom; little bees also come out to collect nectar
Spring has returned, the spring wind blows (it goes huhu), the spring rain falls (it goes shasha)
Little grasses become green, willow tree grows soft sprouts, willow tree grows soft sprouts

What is this song called? It's called Spring Returns!
