Your charm extends out to the Milky Way
You wish you could seduce the whole world
When I’m in the corner and you occasionally think of me
Flirting with girls is righteous

Seeing as how you don’t like me that much
Why are you always flirting with me?
Seeing as how it’s loneliness-induced trouble
Why do you come to burden me?

Because I’ll take it seriously
Because I’m too naive
Helplessly I go past the point of no return
Stupid earnestness
Carefully following your every step
Desperately longing earnestness

Your performing skills surpass those of skilled courtesans
I'm a bag of nerves, you're at ease
When my bored-to-death spirit was set aflame

Flirting with girls is righteous
Seeing as how you don’t like me that much
Why are you always flirting with me?
Seeing as how it’s loneliness-induced trouble
Why do you come to punish me?
Because I’ll take it seriously
Because I’m too naive
Helplessly I go past the point of no return
Stubbornly pursue this error
Desperately longing stupidity

All my feelings
Rise because of you
Fall because of you
Totally befuddled by you
Follow you here
Follow you there
Waste my time on you

Why are you always flirting with me?
Seeing as how it’s loneliness-induced trouble
Seeing as how you don’t like me that much
Why do you come to burden me?

Because I’ll take it seriously
Because I’m too naive
Helplessly I go past the point of no return
Stupid earnestness

Title: 去你的撩妹即正义
Artist: 阿肆
Link: https://youtu.be/lvRukzrB1VY
Translation: https://www.notion.so/f31a1ceefb6c4aeba8b0b36d918c43b3

Chinese lyrics

你的魅力外放到银河系
最好全世界都被你调戏
当我在角落里被你偶然想起
撩妹即正义

既然你不够喜欢我
干嘛总来撩我
既然是寂寞惹的祸
干嘛来拖累我

因为我会当真
因为我太天真
无奈我覆水难收的
愚蠢的认真
亦步亦趋的
望眼欲穿的认真

春风十里不如你的演技
坐立难安是我,自在是你
当百无聊赖的灵魂再次燃起

撩妹即正义
既然你不够喜欢我
干嘛总来撩我
既然是寂寞惹的祸
干嘛来惩罚我
因为我会当真
因为我太天真
无奈我覆水难收的
执迷不悟的
望眼欲穿的愚蠢

所有情绪
因你而起
因你而落
因你而不知所措
随你而来
随你而去
为你而蹉跎

干嘛总来撩我
既然是寂寞惹的祸
既然你不够喜欢我
干嘛来拖累我

因为我会当真
因为我太天真
无奈我覆水难收的
愚蠢的认真

I dated several types, my elder brother was never satisfied
He thinks I’m a diamond or piece of gold that belongs in a palace
Other people are unqualified

The guy from last time, wore a lot of cologne
Like a hooligan, didn’t care for him
Says he does music
Had both looks and talent
Yeah, really didn’t care for him

I said before when you’re outside you gotta be very careful
Dudes have countless slick maneuvers
You need to believe me
Your brother here is the fighter jet of pickup artists
Oh trust me
I don’t want to believe you
Don’t throw a tantrum
Oh no
You’re sick with love
You’re the one who’s sick
Because I care for you

Hey, where are you?
Ugh, you’re really quite annoying

I say, elder brother, based on your standards
I have no choice but to be alone for hundreds of years
And have no idea if I can successfully become a Taoist immortal
Come quick, come quick, come quick, come quick
This guy is well put together

You have to be really careful of these intellectual-looking guys
Often these are the most dangerous types
You gotta take it from me
Your brother here is the MVP of the intellectual world
Oh trust me
I don’t want to believe you
Don’t throw a tantrum
Oh no
You’re sick with love
You’re the one who’s sick
Because I care for you

Yes or no
The impression I get is (that he’s) super dangerous
Has a familiar air, like what I was like when I was young
Yes or no
Of course can’t judge solely on appearances
Your happiness is what’s important

Title: 我哥
Artist: Matzka瑪斯卡+秦凡淇

Translation: https://www.notion.so/1c13a3fdfda34cc089c963822d86c6d5

Chinese lyrics

我谈过几个类型,我哥不满意
他认为我是那殿堂级的钻石或黄金
别人配不起

上次那位,洒满香水
流里流气,真看不惯眼
说他搞音乐
相貌才华兼备
嗯 我真的看不惯眼

说过在外千万要小心
男生花招多得数不清
要相信我
你哥我可是撩妹界中的战斗机
Oh trust me
不想相信
别耍脾气
Oh no
犯花痴病
你才有病
因为爱你

喂,你在哪呢
哎,你真的很烦哎

我说哥,照你的标准
我只能孤独好几百年
还无法确定是否能够修炼成仙
快来快来快来快来
这个人很实在

外表斯文的千万要小心
通常这种是最危险类型
你要相信
你哥我可是斯文界中的MVP
Oh trust me
不想相信
别耍脾气
Oh no
犯花痴病
你才有病
因为爱你

是否
给我的感觉实在超级危险
似曾相识,像我年轻以前
是否
当然不能只论外表而言
你幸福才是重点

Watch Beijing opera, play on a swing, kick a stone by the side of the road
Hallway door’s lantern, outdoor market’s soup noodles
Newly-bought clothes, pocket money from lunar new year
Small cloth shoes, flower print handkerchief
Uncle that makes sugar people and celestial beings from the stories
I put a handkerchief over my face, count to three
You quickly hide behind the old tree

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re laughing, laughing with others and start to talk about the past
Alleys from childhood were long and short
Without realizing it, twenty years have passed

You said you remembered my pigtails from when I was six
Laughing at my craziness, say that I should become a performer
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a street performer girl
Can’t keep myself from giving a few pennies more

Small cloth shoes, flower print handkerchief
Uncle that makes sugar people and celestial beings from the stories
I put a handkerchief over my face, count to three
You quickly hide behind the old tree

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re laughing, laughing with others and start to talk about the past
Alleys from childhood were long and short
Without realizing it, twenty years have passed

You said you remembered my pigtails from when I was six
Laughing at my craziness, say that I should become a performer
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a street performer girl
Can’t keep myself from giving a few pennies more

Elder sister, l saw you once last year
You’re talking, talking with others and start flipping through a photo album
Mottled smudges, bits and pieces
How did twenty years pass without us realizing it?

I’ve already cut off my pigtails
Your looks have a bit more weariness to them
Now, faraway from home, when I come across a girl who loves laughing
Still can’t stop myself, your face pops into my mind

Elder sister, I’ve also been fondly remembering
Childhood fruits were so fragrant and sweet
That year when you were married off, I suddenly grew up
Every day hoping, when will I receive your letter?

Title: 姐姐

Chinese lyrics

看大戏 ,荡秋千,踢个石子儿在小路边
廊门的灯笼,集市的汤面
新买的衣裳,压岁的零钱
小布鞋,花手绢
吹糖人儿的老伯和故事里的神仙
我蒙上帕子数到三声
你快快躲到老树的后面

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人笑着笑着就说起从前
儿时的巷子里深深浅浅
竟不知不觉就过了二十年

你说记得我六岁的羊角辫
说以后当个戏子你笑我疯癫
如今在远方遇到卖艺的姑娘
却忍不住 多给几文钱

小布鞋,花手绢
吹糖人儿的老伯和故事里的神仙
我蒙上帕子数到三声
你快快躲到老树的后面

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人笑着笑着就说起从前
儿时的巷子里深深浅浅
竟不知不觉就过了二十年

你说记得我六岁的羊角辫
说以后当个戏子你笑我疯癫
如今在远方遇到卖艺的姑娘
却忍不住 多给几文钱

姐姐,去年见你一面
你与人说着说着就翻出了相片
斑驳的污渍啊星星点点
怎不知不觉就过了二十年

我已剪掉我六岁的羊角辫
而你的样子里面也多了些疲倦
如今在远方遇到爱笑的姑娘
仍忍不住 想起你的脸

姐姐,我也一阵阵得想念
幼年时瓜果香甜
我突然懂事在你出嫁的那年
日日盼啊 何时寄来你的信件

Every young lady is a flower
Wherever it blooms, cow poop will be there
Every dude has a phrase
Don’t know whether or not to say it to a girl

Hey girl, where're you off to?
I haven’t finished saying what I want to say
Hey girl, are you going to come back?
When you get back, let’s finish our conversation

So girl, when you’re thirsty do you drink water?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl, when you’re hungry do you eat?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl, does your long hair hang over your shoulders?
Me too, this must be fate
Girl, do you like to wear your hair in braids?
Me too, this must be fate

Fate grows wings, it will fly
Without you realizing it, it flies to your side
Fate grows legs, it will run
If you don’t catch him, he’ll be out of sight

So girl, where're you off to?
I haven’t finished saying what I want to say
Hey girl, are you going to come back?
When you get back, let’s finish our conversation

Hey girl, when you’re tired do you sleep?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl, when you wake up do you get out of bed?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl, do you like listening to this song?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl, do you want another one?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl girl, when you’re thirsty do you drink water?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl girl, when you're hungry do you eat?
Me too, this must be fate

Hey girl girl, does your long hair hang over your shoulders?
Me too, this must be fate
Hey girl girl, do you like to wear your hair in braids?
Me too, this must be fate

每个姑娘都是一朵花哎
盛开在哪牛粪就往哪啦呢
每个爷们都有一句话
不知该不该跟姑娘说啊

嘿姑娘,你要去哪啊
我还没说完我要说的话
嘿姑娘,你还回来吗
回来咱们接着把话说完呐

我说姑娘啊,你渴了喝水吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
嘿姑娘啊,你饿了吃饭吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

嘿姑娘啊,你长发披肩吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
姑娘啊,你爱扎小辫儿吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

缘分长着翅膀,它会飞
不知不觉就飞到你身边
缘分长着腿儿啊,它会跑
你不抓住他,他就不见了

我说姑娘,你要去哪啊
我还没说完我要说的话
嘿姑娘,你还回来吗
回来咱们接着把话说完呐

嘿姑娘啊,你困了睡觉吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
嘿姑娘啊,你醒了起床吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

嘿姑娘啊,你爱听这歌吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧
嘿姑娘啊,你要再来一个吗
我也是啊,这就是缘分吧

嘿姑娘姑娘,渴了喝水吗

嘿姑娘姑娘,长发披肩吗

I raise my eyes and see the outline of Thousand Buddha Mountain
I close my eyes—there’s Lake Daming and the city moat
Spurting Spring is gushing by my ear
But I’m not sure
Jinan
What is it actually like?
What is it really like?

Cheongsam-wearing girls, where are you?
Oldsters performing clapper talk, where are you?
Annoying little kids all grew up
The local accent of the young’uns, is there anyone who remembers it?

Ancient streets and alleys have already been torn down
Republican era train station, I haven't even seen it
For years now, Qingshiban's spring water is nowhere to be found
The beautiful scenery of a weeping willow by every house is already a legend

Jinan, Jinan, where are you?
Jinan, Jinan, I'm too far from home
Jinan, Jinan, I can't go back
Jinan, Jinan, I'm missing you

The Yellow River used to flow through Old Town's west side
East, south, and north, mountains and rivers surround those sides
Sandstorms from Inner Mongolia, they charge straight in
Springwater moistens the city's arteries

Magnificent city walls, all that's left of it is Liberation Pavilion
The neon lights can't illuminate the city moat
Yanxi Temple's sign board is dim and falling apart
Furong Street's restaurants, how many serve Shandong cuisine?

Jinan, Jinan, where are your roots?
Jinan, Jinan, what do you have left?
Jinan, Jinan, do you know
Jinan, Jinan, how much I love you?

I raise my eyes and see the outline of Thousand Buddha Mountain
I close my eyes—there’s Lake Daming and the city moat
Spurting Spring is gushing by my ear
I just want to say to you
Jinan
I miss you
I want to go back home

Can't stand how high the waves are and how salty the water is
I just live near the shore
Seaside wind is very cool, coconut juice is very sweet
I just sleep under the trees

Dad says the beach is very muggy, weather is very hot
Can't be suitable for me
Mom says the beach is too far, too many bad guys
Can't stop worrying about me

But since I was little you both said
The sea is the kingdom of freedom
A free, fabulous, tolerant place
How can it not accommodate me
I'll run towards it with all my might
Just treat it as exercising my body
This is how it becomes my own little piece of the sea

I was born in a small northern town, by the banks of the serene Chaobai River
To commemorate her tranquility, my name is Peace

Spring wavering between warm and cold, sparrow flies over open country
White snow quietly melts, my name is Peace

When I was 18, I departed from her gaze
Came to a strange city, maybe I’ll never go back

In a spring wavering between warm and cold, sparrow flies over open country
Fly to a strange city, my name is Peace

My name is Peace, in this strange world

It turns out the world is vast and expansive, no way to see its edges
People drift further and further apart, hearts become ice-cold and apathetic
I found my beloved, now I’ll never go back
I told her my name, my name is Peace

My name is Peace, in this unpeaceful world

Hope you find happiness in the city, find happiness

Hope you find happiness in the city, find happiness

After enduring the winter’s big snowfalls
Have the birds turned around?
After a winter's worth of waiting
Have memories slipped away?

Street lights that turn on too early, evening wind, flickering lights
People you briefly encounter, streets and cities, the presences you don't perceive

Wait until spring is almost here
Wait until spring, green (like the color of jade) is appearing on branches
This spring

Kids, kids, stave off your cravings, after Laba (eighth day of the twelfth lunar month) is the new year
Kids, kids, stave off your cravings, bit by bit to the twenty-third

Twenty-third, malt sugar candy
Twenty-fourth, day for cleaning
Twenty-fifth, buy tofu
Twenty-sixth, cut a piece of meat
Twenty-seventh, buy a chicken
Twenty-eighth, leaven dough
Twenty-nineth, steam buns
Night of the thirtieth, stay up late (until midnight)
New year's day, shake your booty

Alarm clock already sounded many times, how come you haven’t gotten up?
You said sleep for 5 minutes more, but it’s already been an hour
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Piled up a week’s worth of work, you put it off again and again
Leader is anxious, boss is angry, but you just keep tweeting
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
Next week is the test, textbook hasn’t even been touched
Will see advisor tomorrow to submit thesis, at worst you won’t sleep tonight
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can definitely diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Pile up for a month, no more clean clothes to wear
Room isn’t inhabitable by humans, no place to put your feet
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can begin to diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

End of the month, rent hasn’t been paid, should be fined for (late) water and electricity (bill)
Don’t want to make food, don’t want to bathe, can’t stop (watching) TV shows
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can once again diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Dealing with modern humans, medical science is in crisis
We still don’t have an effective method of treatment
Day after day, every day wasting time, we must resort to
Cut off your wifi
Pull out your network cable
Throw out your cellphone
Turn off your feed
Now you must begin (to work)

If you can’t finish today, we won’t give you anything to eat
You’ve gotten fat again, you said you were going to work out, laid down the whole day
This meal doesn’t count, wait until next meal, if you don't eat your fill how can you lose weight?
Based on your clinical symptoms
We can totally diagnose
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer

Can you be saved?
You are a late stage procrastination syndrome sufferer
You ask me, but who do I ask?
We’re all late stage procrastination syndrome sufferers

If you see that I’m ignoring you
I’m doing it on purpose
At night I still wear sunglasses
I’m still faking it

I own a small Xiali
My key chain says Audi
Going out must bring a chauffeur and assistant
Otherwise I won’t go anywhere at all

There’s one leader, he says to me
Your taste is excellent
If you listen to even more classical music
You can enter another world

I suddenly gained respect for him
I repeatedly nodded to express my approval
Suddenly his phone rang
(Can’t bear being wounded, really can’t bear being wounded)
Wow, leader! I really appreciate this classical classic song.
I pinched myself

Living in this world, people coming and going
Every shade and description
Can’t clearly discern who’s a good person
Who’s a big bad wolf

The forest is big, the birds are many
Don’t lose your bearings
People in jianghu, do what they please
When you should fake it, you must fake it

Everyone is a director of life
On occasion, make a cameo for several days
As an actor bound by the unwritten rules of life
My role is always the brightest
My costume is the most beautiful
My box office is always sold out
When I should fake it, I must fake it

In my social circle is an older woman
Every day she’s very active
In every photo expose her underwear
Everything she says is very artsy

She obviously looks like a hired thug
But she insists she looks like an actress
Even though she’s only 56
But this is everyone’s freedom

The bird that flew from the desert, it told me
It's desolate there, all that's left is paleness
The bird that flew from my hometown, it told me
Mother's wrinkles are already old and gray-haired

On this kind of night, why do I always
I think of you again, the girl I abandoned
On this kind of night, why do I always
I think of you again, I think of you again

The bird that flew from the grasslands, it told me
It's grown wild there, all that's left is vastness
The bird that flew from the south, it told me
The beloved girl already has flowing long hair

On this kind of night, why do I always
I thought of you again, the girl I once loved
On this kind of night, why do I always
I think of you again, I think of you again

Baby, when you came into this world
Did you know how happy your father was?
That day I invited so many of our friends
And picked this pleasant-sounding name for you
From this moment on you will be called Zheng Qianhua!
“Qian” as in “earning money”, hua as in “spending money”
Your father is currently a pauper
Your entire future rests in your own hands!

Baby, when you came into this world
Did you know how joyful your mother was?
That day she knitted a handsome sweater
I think when you wear it will look great
From this moment on you will be called Zheng Qianhua!
“Qian” as in “earning money”, hua as in “spending money”
Your father also wants to be a macho man
Give you and your mother a warm home!

But, my baby, do you know?
How hard it is to earn money now?
Raising a child is damn hard!
Is family planning still necessary?!
Glorious motherland, she’s got a ton of money!
Does 4 trillion have anything to do with me?
Proud GDP grows with a whoosh!
Can I trade it for several disposable diapers?!

Baby, your name is Zheng Qianhua
As your father I love you, but I’m helpless
So in the future you have to rely on yourself
Your father can only give you his heartfelt blessings!
Grow up properly, don't get sick
Study hard so we can save money on education costs
When you grow up, earn money and spend it
I give you my heartfelt blessings!

What should we use to wash away
The traces left by war
A once great land is now left with nothing but devastation
What should we use to wash away
The marks left by violence
A once-glorious homeland has been razed to the ground

You turned all the people who loved you into killing robots
Make them slaughter each other so you can conquer more territory
To pompously satisfy your bottomless selfish desires
Violence has been labeled as war to uphold your so-called justice

When your beloved loses both legs on the battlefield
When he’s unable to sleep at night, shouting and crying in pain
When you fearfully wait for news and it finally becomes a death notification
Then victory in war is mockery aimed directly at you

When you’re still diligently pondering your life’s potential
When the bomb drops a second before you receive blessings
This isn’t the heavens making a senseless joke at your expense
You must start praying for the lifetime of suffering you will receive

Your people are drifting in misery, homeless and destitute
Your people are desperately searching for a way to survive
You’ve already gotten what you were striving for
But you paid a painful price in bloodshed

Your power is pushing you towards the path of no return
Your power will not allow your soul to be redeemed
Yet even if you are hacked to pieces, it won’t wash away your sins
Violence has completely turned into a berserker demon

What should we use to resist
The merciless destruction of bullets
You use the bodies of warriors to build the facade of war victory
What should we use to rouse
The deeply slumbering power
The firepower of war cannot withstand the longing for peace in people's hearts

What should we use to liberate
The power of love and peace
So that it can heal the desolation of time
To allow happiness to grow like crazy
No more casualties
No more casualties
No more people will be hurt by this

Lady Nüwa mended the heavens
A leftover rock became Mt Hua
Birds fly with their backs to that sun
Fly from the east side to the west side

Why has the sky turned grey?
Why does the earth have no green?
Why are people's hearts not red?
Why has the snowy mountain turned black?

Why does the rhino have no horn?
Why does the elephant have no tusks?
Why does the shark have no fin?
Why do the birds have no wings?

Heaven and earth keep each other company
Birds go around that sun
Mt Hua and Yellow River keep each other company
The rice in the fields bend over in laughter

Why does the desert have no oasis?
Why are the stars no longer twinkling?
Why are the flowers no longer blooming?
Why is the world devoid of color?

Why is it we know the outcome?
Why are we still being wasteful?
We must stop our forward march
(We) should restore a little color to the world

If my mighty eagle loses its wings
If my spirited horse loses its direction
If my open country becomes a barren desert
If my rivers dry up and stop flowing

Don’t let the eagle’s soaring lose its wings
Don’t let the steed’s gallop lose its direction
Don’t let your desire drown your heart
Don’t let Mother Earth convalesce in loneliness

If my highland loses its pastures
If my shepherds lose their cows and sheep
Don’t let the eagle’s soaring lose its wings
Don’t let the steed’s gallop lose its direction
I fly over grasslands, searching for heaven
I fly in the sky, sun and moon illuminate me

I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah

Heaven is calling out
Restore everlasting green to the earth
I fly ah, I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah
Love knows no borders

I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, freely I fly ah

I lonelily fly
I freely fly
I freely fly
I fly ah, I fly ah, lonelily I fly ah
I fly ah, I fly ah, freely I fly ah

Hi everyone, I'm Wang Qiang, guitar teacher Wang Qiang
Let me tune everyone's strings
Firstly, strum the E string, let me listen to see if it's in tune
Uh, this is off, turn it 30 degrees to the left

It's off, it's off, turn it 30 degrees to the right
Still off, another 30 degrees
Teacher, I've turned it as far as it'll go
Oh, if it's all the way then it's alright

Wang Qiang is a guitar teacher
He's not a qualified guitar teacher
First turn a string 30 degrees to the left
Then turn it 30 degrees back to the right

Wang Qiang is a guitar teacher
A guitar teacher who'll lead students astray
He has a priceless
Acoustic guitar tuner

Students, let me tell you
When you study under me, you must buy my tuner
My tuner is 3000 bucks
Special insider price is 2000 to take it home

Wang Qiang is a guitar teacher
Still not up to par with Fenghua Arts Academy's instructor Liu Chuan
Mr Liu Chuan teaches us how to use the pitch pipe
Wang Qiang, all you know is 30 degrees (method)

Wang Qiang's tuner costs 3000 bucks
I really think it's a little too pricey
Mr Wang Qiang, you shouldn't lead students astray
Actually, you're just a fraud

Is Wang Qiang really a guitar teacher?
Actually he's just a big fraud
Is Wang Qiang really a guitar teacher?
Actually he's just a dumbass

Distant islands, no longer vast
Young girl traveling from afar, still silent
In the boat, the song that was playing on arrival is still on loop
On the sea’s surface, silver waves appear

Escaped the past, come here alone
Easternmost island, start a new life
Youth hostel by the mountain, find a job
Only sing her song to stray dogs

Badun, Badun, Badun
I come alone, I leave alone
Badun, Badun, Badun
Is there someone who would wait for you to come home?

Until she encounters her
So out of the ordinary
Like the beam of a lighthouse
Illuminating the forsaken night sky
She said, let’s go together
Badun always disappears in
The grove by the road near the wharf
But where does she go?
Deep in the sea winds, reverberates
The voice of seventeen

Badun, Badun, Badun
I come alone, I leave alone
Badun, Badun, Badun
Is there someone who would wait for you to come home?

Badun, Badun, Badun
I come alone, I leave alone
Badun, Badun, Badun
Is there someone who would wait for you to come home?

Badun, Badun, Badun
I don’t want her to leave alone
Badun, Badun, Badun
Is there someone who would wait for me to come home?

Badun, Badun, Badun

I’m at the stalls of building materials market
Acting as if I’m in auto parts market
Looking at the shop fronts outside Sixth Ring
Setting solar panels in the sun

Turning over xiaolongbao’s cover
Putting on lighting decoration market's airs
Eating yangchun noodle's chopped green onions
Strumming instrument market's strings

Even if you're a small business owner or entrepeneur
To celebrate the new year, you'll go home
Eat a New Year's Eve dinner
Holding your lover, drink merrily

Just during these few days, can enjoy free time
Play mahjong and chat, stroll around with old folks
Go visit your relatives, go to the temple to eat candied fruit on skewers
After a few days, there will again be anxiety and busyness
This is how the the New Year gets going

Even if you're a small business owner or entrepeneur
To celebrate the new year, you'll go home
Eat a New Year's Eve dinner
Holding your lover, drink merrily

Even if you're a small business owner or entrepeneur
To celebrate the new year, you'll go home
Eat a New Year's Eve dinner
Holding your lover, drink merrily

Go to the temple to light incense, pray for a peaceful year
Whose birth sign year is it?
Brother who served in the military, distant people
Longing for the mountain, comforting phone call

Even if you're a small business owner or entrepeneur
To celebrate the new year, you'll go home
Eat a New Year's Eve dinner
Holding your lover, drink merrily

Even if you're a small business owner or entrepeneur
To celebrate the new year, you'll go home
Eat a New Year's Eve dinner
Holding your lover, drink merrily

Even if you're a small business owner or entrepeneur
To celebrate the new year, you'll go home
Eat a New Year's Eve dinner
Holding your lover, drink merrily

Uncle Li wants to be a Red soldier
Red Army doesn’t want that uncle
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
Too easy for Japs to spot the target

Uncle Li found the commander
The commander is also an uncle (an old guy)
Because uncle feels sorry for uncle
Uncle honorably joined the army

Uncle Li went on a mission
Got halfway up the mountain
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
He was spotted by the Japs

Uncle Li patted his stomach and ran
Japs came up stabbing
For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself

Rain falling on pear blossoms
Tightly close the door
Yan clay is spent
Flowers falling into dust

Hoping you are an honoroed guest that understands my kindness and intention
And not a confused person who can't tell right from wrong
I did not come seeking fame and glory
I hope, Mister, that you don't let me down

Uncle Li wants to be a Red soldier
Red army doesn't want Uncle Li
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
Too easy for Japs to spot the target

Uncle Li found the commander
The commander is also an old uncle
Because old uncle sympathizes with old uncle
Uncle Li honorably became a Red soldier

Uncle Li went on a mission
Climbed up a small hillside
Because Uncle Li’s butt is big
He was spotted by the Japs

Uncle Li slapped his butt and ran
Japs came up stabbing
For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself

For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself
For the revolution, for the party
Uncle Li gloriously sacrificed himself

I suddenly get the urge to skip work
Stare into space, be a little lazy
But I also want to ask myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Dreams always go in a circle
But you always go back to the starting point
Shouldn’t I
Double down on my resolve?

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, really no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
How can I paint the future?

I’m just left with an empty pocket
I can only stare blankly in the same place
This world changes too fast
Thinking about it, I still don’t get it

I really have no time, no time, to eat breakfast
I have no time, no time, to exercise
I have no time, no time, to stroll through shops
I have no time, no time, I really have no time at all

I have no time, no time, to date
I have no time, no time, to see my parents more
I have no time, no time, I’m a bit annoyed
What do I always have no time?

More and more, I miss the past
Free of worries, glorious youth
But I have to still tell myself
Shouldn’t I have more resolve?

Clouds, just like wandering minstrels
Singing the wind’s song, spitting the rain’s saliva
Birds, forgot how to fly
Anyway, being in a cage isn’t tiring, can sleep soundly

Turn off cell phone, activate insect’s antennae
Let us perceive this world

Right now, close your friend feed
Close your eyes, and your mouth
Ears, can probe orientation
Let us slowly search for the distant place

Reindeer eats that lichen ah
It can’t come out of the forest ah

Information overload is like carbon in the air
Am I engaging too many senses (at once)?
Invite “Silence” on a date
Use insect’s antennae to chat with her

The ink on the page is deeper than that on a page
The music on a live stage is more real than that from earphones
After we meet in person, give me your time, ok?
After returning home, (use our cell phones to) keep in touch

Use insect’s antennae to look far afield
Use insect’s antennae to perceive this world, ok? Heh heh.

A long, long time ago
You had me, I had you
A long, long time ago
You left me to soar in a distant sky

The world outside is wonderful
The world outside is very fickle
When you think the outside world is wonderful
I'll be here sincerely wishing you well

When the evening sun sets
I'm always here longing for you
Even though the sky is filled with drizzling rain
I'll still be waiting for your return

The world outside is wonderful
The world outside is very fickle
When you think the outside world is very fickle
I'll still be here patiently waiting for you

Shana, my daughter
Darling, I love you
Shana, I’m sorry
To have brought you into this world

Even though this world
Has so much beauty
Unfortunately this world
Still has many problems

Shana, I’m powerless
To solve these problems, you’ll have to rely on yourself
Shana, you will understand
The beauty of the world is in your heart
In my heart

Shana, my daughter
Darling, I love you
Shana, I’m sorry
To have brought you into this world
In the future, this world
Will have many problems
Fortunately, there will still be beauty in our hearts

Shana, if you learn
Mercy, kindness, wisdom, determination
Shana, if you sing
You will be beautiful, you will be happy
You will understand

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books, fix bowls

Popsicles and ice cream bars, soymilk and deep-fried breadsticks
These are the flavors that can’t be erased from my childhood
Big bowl of sheep innards, egg with rice wine
Along with people’s customs, (these foods) have been forgotten due to the changing of the times

Old Bai at the alleyway, he’s singing a folk song
Whatever he’s singing, whatever it is, you listen
Sharpen knives and scissors, the wind is blowing the willow branches
We sit on the riverbank singing the local folk songs from that time
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They smoke and smoke their water pipes, letting time slip away
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Throw away your rouge now and come with me to seek tomorrow
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Even if time becomes lightning fast, I’ll still live brilliantly

Water so clear, mountain so green
This is the childhood from my dreams that I can’t return to
Winter’s kang (heatable brick bed), summers’s sun
Spring’s flowing brook, autumn’s wine
At that end of the mountain, Yellow River’s upper reaches
Comes a sound, you listen

Sharpen knives and scissors, wind is blowing on the wharf
They sit on the riverbank looking at that western mountain’s sun
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They’re drinking tea from teacups with lids and gossiping about the boss family’s unexpected misfortunes
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Put aside your worries and come with me to seek your childhood
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Just keep walking, don’t look back

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books
Collect used books, return to your hometown

Remember in my youth
Everyone was honest and sincere
Say something and that’s that

Daybreak at the train station
Long street is dark, no pedestrians
The shop selling soy milk gives off steam

In the past, the hues of sunlight changed slowly
Cars, horses, mail were all slow
A lifetime lasts long enough to love one person

In the past, locks were lovely
Keys were elegant and classy
You locked it, and everyone understood
