Today is another time to drink and sing
A lot of friends are meeting for the first time
Even though you’ve just gotten to know each other, you’ll be saying goodbye again very soon
I hope it isn’t for forever
Even though Bitter Ghost can only offer the gift of a little music
We hope you can hear our warm regards

Time passes day by day
We still haven’t found ourselves
Together with music and beer
There’s us, and sometimes there’s you

Sometimes happy, sometimes sad
Sometimes feel that life isn’t fair enough
Music, beer, and you all
That’s the point of our existence in this moment

Title: 见面就说再见
Artist: 苦鬼乐队
Link: https://youtu.be/dgGg6arkSOM
Translation: https://www.notion.so/580040d4f0c246c4a4edaa9fe29de38e

Chinese lyrics

今天又是一个喝酒唱歌的时间
很多朋友都是第一次的见面
虽然是刚刚相识但是马上就要再说再见
我希望那不是永远
虽然苦鬼带来的礼物只是小小一点音乐
我们的心意希望你能听见

时间一天一天在过去
我们还是没找到自己
和音乐和啤酒在一起
有我们,有时候还有你

有时快乐,有时伤感
有时感觉生活不够公平
音乐,啤酒,还有你们
就是我们此刻存在的意义

Since a potato’s composition
Is mostly a bunch of starch
You shouldn’t try to
Compare it with spinach in terms of vitamin A

You can use it with hot peppers to stir fry
A plate of vinegary julienned potato
So umami, spicy, fresh, crispy
You can totally treat it as a staple food

It also contains vitamin A
Has more thiamine than spinach
Stores a long time without spoiling

Since summer is a
Hot and suffocating season
You shouldn’t try to
Compare it with winter in terms of coolness

During the hottest time at noon, you can go out for a walk
Get some sun, sweat, detoxify, enliven blood circulation
Don’t ever need to spend money steaming in the sauna

Got some exercise, distracted oneself a bit
Also became familiar with the surrounding area
Got some exercise, distracted oneself a bit
Also became familiar with the surrounding area

Since the kid will grow up
You can’t stop it no matter what you do
Then you shouldn’t treat him
Like you would treat a Pekinese dog

Let him mistakenly believe this world
Is both refreshingly cool and warm
Basically it’s as if you took a frog
And put it into a pot filled with cold water that you slowly heat up

Flame burns ever more brightly, water gets ever hotter
Until he slowly loses perception

Since I told you that I love you
And you still don’t love me
Then why not just stay silent
And board a random train

Who cares if it’s headed towards a city
Or a small village
Anyway that place will always have
An unremarkable girl just like me

I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Her worries are waiting for me
I’m waiting, I’m waiting
Her worries are waiting for me

Title: 土豆
Artist: 万晓利
Link: https://artist.douban.com/m/wanxiaoli/tracks?play=tS9ow3&pl=pS2jz74xak&pz=1
Translation: https://www.notion.so/d59065e5f81242eaa3994f5b9628e28a

Chinese lyrics

既然土豆的成份
主要就是些淀粉
那就不应该拿它
去和菠菜比什么维生素A

可以用它和辣椒炒
一盘醋溜土豆丝
又香又辣又鲜又脆
直接可以当做主食

它也含维生素A
硫胺素比菠菜多
放很长时间 也不腐烂

既然夏天就是个
又闷又热的季节
那就不应该拿它
去和冬天比谁凉快

可以在中午最热的 时候出去遛遛
又晒又出汗又排毒又活血
不用再花钱去蒸桑拿

也运动了,也散心了
周围的环境也摸清了
也运动了,也散心了
周围的环境也摸清了

既然孩子要长大
你挡也挡不住
那就不应该对他
像对待一只哈巴狗

让他误以为这世界
既清凉又暖和
到头来却像把一只青蛙
按进冷水锅再慢慢加热

火越烧越旺,水越来越烫
直到他渐渐失去知觉

既然我说我爱你
你还是不爱我
那就不如什么也不说
随便搭上一趟列车

管它前方是城市
还是个小村落
反正那里总会有个
像我一样不起眼的姑娘

在等着,在等着
她的烦恼在等着我
在等着,在等着
她的烦恼在等着我

Oh~oh~
This is a sad song
Oh~this is a sad song

Miss Wang turned 31
When her friends see her
They all ask a question:
When do you plan to get married?

But the problem of marriage
Isn’t something she can decide on by herself
She asks her papa, she asks her mama
They both said, you better hurry

Look, look, look at other people, there there there there
Look, look, look look look there there there there

Over-30 artsy girl
Should marry what kind of person?
Shouldn’t she find someone who does art?
This way, they would be fairly compatible?

But artsy boys who do art
Some of them are only into their art
Also, a very small minority of boys who do art
Do art so they can do girls

Doing girls doesn’t mean just doing her
What’s the point of marrying him?
Doing girls doesn’t mean just doing her
Damn damn damn damn it

Friends introduce quite a few
Some have cars, some have houses, some have kids
They said you should find one who has money
Let him support your creative efforts

But no rich guys like her
They only want to marry those who can cook
Girls who can’t cook
Can only become the other woman
Artsy girls who can’t cook
Can only be used by them

Damn damn damn damn it
Oh~ho~oh~ho~ho

This song is a truthful account
If it’s fictional that’s just coincidence
Please don’t take it personally
And then form an online mob to block me

Look, look, look, she can only make stir fried egg and tomato
Look, look, and eat it with instant noodles
That is really quite tasty
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia
That is really quite tasty
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia~

Title: 大龄文艺女青年之歌
Artist: 邵夷贝

Translation: https://www.notion.so/7085694f55fa43a68a78d760c3337577

Chinese lyrics

Oh~oh~
这是一首悲伤的歌
Oh~这是一首悲伤的歌

王小姐三十一岁了
朋友们见到了她
都要问一个问题:
你什么时候打算嫁呢?

可是嫁人这一个问题
又不是她一个人 可以决定的
她问她爸爸,她问她妈妈
他们都说,你赶紧的

你看,你看,你看人家,那那那那
你看,你看,你看看看那那那那

大龄文艺女青年
该嫁一个什么样的人呢?
是不是也该找个搞艺术的
这样就比较合适呢?

可是搞艺术的男青年
有一部分只爱他的艺术
还有,极少部分搞艺术的男青年
搞艺术是为了搞姑娘

搞姑娘又不只搞她一个
你嫁给他干什么呢?
搞姑娘又不只搞她一个
奶奶奶奶奶奶的

朋友们介绍了好几个
有车子,房子,和孩子的
他们说你该找个有钱的
让他赞助你搞创作

可是大款都不喜欢她
他们只想娶会做饭的
不会做饭的女青年
只能去当第三者
不会做饭的文艺女青年
只能被他们潜规则

奶奶奶奶奶奶的
Oh~ho~oh~ho~ho

这一首歌纯属雷同
如有虚构实属巧合
请不要自觉对号入座
然后发动群众封杀我

你看,你看,你看她只会做西红柿炒鸡蛋
你看,你看,还要就着方便面
那是非常的好吃的
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia
那是非常的好吃的
Mia mia mia mia mia mia mia~

Small town builds a pedestrian bridge
To residents accustomed to not having a crosswalk
A road that can be crossed in 2 seconds
Why must one ascend stairs that take dozens of steps
Walk down a corridor of more than 10 meters
Then choose an exit
Descend down a spiral staircase to the other side of the street
That really wastes time
Wastes physical energy, wastes emotions
Wastes youth, wastes ink
Wastes natural gas, wastes renminbi
Wastes food, wastes public resources

Very small pedestrian bridge
Was meant to let people stand even
A little bit high high high high high high higher
But in actuality a very small pedestrian bridge just makes
A very small town even smaller
Even smaller even smaller, really quite small
Just as small as a pea
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Oh
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Oh
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Ah
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it
Impossible
Even a nearsighted person with a magnifying glass couldn’t see it

Therefore (the residents who are) unpretentious, ordinary, hard-working, benevolent
Loving their hometown
Sometimes prone to taking small advantages
Never step onto it
As always, they live in the busy
Giant stream of people
Wake up, have breakfast, go to work
Eat lunch, take a siesta
Wake up, play cards, play Dou dizhu
Get off work, pick up kids from school
Eat dinner, go for a stroll and dancing
Greet acquaintances
Go back home, wash face, wash feet, rinse mouth
Go to bed and speak quietly for a while

Title: 小镇天桥
Artist: 张若水
Link: https://youtu.be/N880ge9W8Zg
Translation: https://www.notion.so/73b242dcbe1c4df3b5ea2bc227a4ead7

Chinese lyrics

小城镇修起了天桥
对于习惯了 没有斑马线的居民们来说
两秒钟就可以穿过的马路
何必要先登上几十步台阶
走过十多米走廊
再选择一个出口
沿着螺旋梯下到街对面
那多浪费时间
浪费体力,浪费感情
浪费青春,浪费墨水
浪费天然气,浪费人民币
浪费粮食,浪费公共资源

小小的天桥
本可以让人们站得再
高高高高高高高高一点
但实际上小小的天桥只会让
小小的城镇更小
更小更小,真的好小
只有豌豆儿那么小
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到
哦吼
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到
哦吼
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到

近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到
不可能
近视眼儿用放大镜都看不到

所以朴实,平凡,勤劳,善良
热爱家乡
有时候爱贪点小便宜的居民们
从不登上去
依旧生活在忙碌的
巨大人流之中
起来,早饭,上班
午饭,午觉
起来,打牌,抢地主
下班,接小娃儿放学
晚饭,再去散步和跳舞
跟熟人打个招呼
再回家,洗脸,洗脚,漱口
上床说会儿悄悄话

Tonight we’re gonna relax
Go to the underground pub, entire body is carefree
Men and women drinking, dancing, singing
There’s black, white, yellow, and green, like a United Nations

Rock ‘n’ roll, one song after another
Rocking to the point where no one knows what day it is
Smoke wafts everywhere, nonstop joyous laughter
Can hear Chinese, English, French, German, as well as Spanish

The TVs on the walls are all showing MTV
Sometimes the DJ will play some cool songs
Because music is a wondrous kind of thing
It’ll make you cry, laugh, dance, scream til you’re old

The bigger and packed the crowd is, the more exciting
Scan front and back, left and right, up and down, it’s a happy scene
All night slowly indulging to your heart’s content
Who cares if you’re sitting, standing, leaning, lying down, or floating

This world is so wonderful
Life is good, so many sensations
This world is so wonderful
Having money is good, don’t lack for anything

Tonight we’re gonna relax
Go to the underground pub, entire body is carefree
Men and women drinking, dancing, singing
There’s black, white, yellow, and green, like a United Nations

This world is so wonderful
Life is good, so many sensations
This world is so wonderful
Having money is good, don’t lack for anything

Chinese lyrics

今天晚上我们要来轻松
走到那地下室的pub,全身都舒畅
男男女女喝酒跳舞唱歌
有黑的白的黄的绿的,像个联合国

Rock 'n' roll 一首接一首
摇得所有人都忘了今夕是何夕
烟雾迷漫,欢笑声不断
有中文英文法文德文还有西班牙文

墙上电视都是MTV
有时候DJ常会放些屌的歌来听
因为音乐是种奇妙的东西
会让你又哭又笑又跳又叫high到老

总是人多拥挤越兴奋
放眼前后左右上下一幅愉悦景象
长夜漫漫尽情地放纵
谁管你坐着站着趴着躺着或是在飘着

这个世界真是多美好
活着真好,感觉真不少
这个世界真是多美好
有钱真好,什么都不少

今天晚上我们要来轻松
走到那地下室的pub,全身都舒畅
男男女女喝酒跳舞唱歌
有黑的白的黄的绿的像个联合国

这个世界真是多美好
活着真好,感觉真不少
这个世界真是多美好
有钱真好,什么都不少

Drifting in circles
Tired of a thousand people with the same face
The day she descends to earth
What will her appearance be?

 

Deep black horizon
Unfathomable hallucinations
Long unencountered halo
In front of me, barely discernible

 

I think this time
I really fell in love with something
I think this time
My heart is harder than stone

 

Inside my hand
There’s a single rose
There’s just one chance
Want to wilt in your embrace

 

Inside my gun
There’s a single bullet
Just one swift release
Want to go through your heart

 

I want to go through
Your heart
I want you to
Constantly think of me

 

More than 40 seasons
Forgot the feeling of love
Tip of tongue is numb
Cannot taste bitterness, cannot recall sweetness

 

No matter how many years I’ve waited
No matter how long I’ve walked down the wrong road
As long as I can see
The scene from every night’s dream

 

I think this time
I really fell in love with something
I think this time
My heart is harder than stone

 

Inside my hand
There’s a single rose
There’s just one chance
Want to wilt in your embrace

 

Inside my gun
There’s a single bullet
Just one swift release
Want to go through your heart

 

I want to go through
Your heart
I want you to
Constantly think of me

Challenge #31: Flirting with girls is righteous

Use the translated English lyrics below to find the title and artist of the song. Bonus points for providing a video or audio link. A short audio clip is provided as an additional hint, should you need it.
 



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

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

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.

云儿 就像吟游诗人
唱着风的歌,吐着雨的口水
鸟儿 忘记了怎么飞
反正在笼中不累,可以安睡

关上手机,开启虫的触角
让我们感知这世界吧

现在 关上你的朋友圈
闭上你的眼睛 还有嘴
耳朵 可以探测方向
让我们逐渐 去寻觅远方

驯鹿是吃那苔藓的啊
它从森林中出不来呀

信息多的像空中的碳(氧化合物)
我是否运行着太多感官?
邀请“静静”来个约会吧
用虫的触角与她交谈

书上的墨比屏幕更深
现场的音乐比耳机更真
相见后时间给我可以吗?
回家后再低头联络吧

用虫的触角去遥望吧
用虫的触角去感知这世界,好吗? 呵呵

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

为什么花儿不再开了
为什么世界没有了颜色

为什么我们知道结果
为什么我们还在挥霍
我们需要停下脚步
该还世界一点颜色

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

李伯伯要当红军
红军不要那伯伯
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀

李伯伯找到了团长
团长也是个伯伯
因为伯伯同情伯伯呀
伯伯就光荣参军了

李伯伯去执行任务
来到了半山腰
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
被鬼子发现了目标

李伯伯拍肚子就跑
鬼子上来就是两刺刀
为了革命,为了党呀
李伯伯就光荣牺牲了

雨打梨花
深闭门
燕泥已尽
落花尘

但愿你是那知恩知意的心中客
不是那无是无非的糊涂人
我此来不为求功名啊
望先生你啊切莫负我情

李伯伯要当红军
红军不要李伯伯
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
容易被鬼子发现目标

李伯伯找到了团长
团长也是个老伯伯
因为老伯伯他同情老伯伯呀
李伯伯就光荣当了红军

李伯伯去执行任务
爬上了小山坡
因为李伯伯的屁股大呀
被鬼子发现了目标

李伯伯拍屁股就跑
鬼子上来就是两刺刀
为了革命,为了党啊

为了革命,为了党啊

10:30 on the subway
Finally everyone gets a seat
Gentle breeze
Softly, softly, softly blows

The (fairly chubby) girl sitting next to me
Leaning heavily against me while sleeping
I didn't push, I can't bear to push
She looks very tired

Slide down the seat, lean back
I lazily stretch my legs
The uncle across from me
While snoring, widely opens his mouth

Nearby auntie, rocking to and fro
She sleeps soundly in her unsteadiness
The girl next to me, gossiping with a friend about someone's
Scandals

I'm also tired
This is the only place where I don't experience insomnia
Sorrowful things, difficult things
Here, I don't have the strength to think of them

The city night, above my head
Silently pass through its heart
Even if it's riddled with problems
Still it smiles elegantly and beautifully

I'm already tired
This is the only place where I don't experience insomnia
Serious things, troublesome things
Here, I can temporarily set them aside

Wait until the stop, get out of the train
The remainder of the trip is still pretty long
Don’t think about it, whatever
Let the breeze blow on my face

10:30 on the subway
Finally everyone gets a seat
Gentle breeze
Softly, softly, softly blows

The (fairly chubby) girl sitting next to me
Leaning heavily against me while sleeping
I didn't push, I can't bear to push
She looks very tired

Chinese lyrics

十点半的地铁
终于每个人都有了座位
温柔的风
轻轻地,轻轻地,轻轻地吹

身边的姑娘,胖胖的她
重重的靠着我睡
我没有推,我不忍心推
她看起来好累

矮下了身子,向后仰
我懒散地伸长了腿
对面的大叔
在鼾声之中张大了嘴

旁边的阿姨,左摇右晃
她睡得找不到北
身边的妹妹 和朋友谈谁
是是非非

我也疲倦了
这是我唯一不失眠的地方
悲伤的,难过的
在这里我没有力气去想

城市的夜,在头上
沉默经过它的心上
尽管它千疮百孔
仍在夜里笑得冷艳漂亮

我已疲倦了
这是我唯一不失眠的地方
沉重的,烫手的
在这里都可以暂时放放

等到了站,下了车
余下的路还有好长
不去想,管它呢
让风吹在我脸上

十点半的地铁
终于每个人都有了座位
温柔的风
轻轻地,轻轻地,轻轻地吹

身边的姑娘,胖胖的她
重重的靠着我睡
我没有推,我不忍心推
她看起来好累

Draw some moonlight for the lonely night sky
Draw myself singing under the moonlight
Draw a large window on the empty house
Also draw a bed

Draw a girl to keep me company
And draw an embroidered quilt
Draw a stove and firewood
We live together

Draw a flock of birds flying around me
Draw green ridges and blue slopes
Draw tranquility and prosperity
Rain droplets drift down over rice paddies

Draw a rainbow you can touch with your hands
The drawing has a starry sky that I decided not to extinguish
Draw an endless, winding, level path
At the end (of the path), we are dreaming

Draw mother in a serene pose
And conflicts that can be wiped away using an eraser
Draw food that is available in all four seasons
A carefree person has no worries

I don’t have an eraser to wipe away arguments
Just a pen for drawing loneliness
The moon in that night sky isn’t shining anymore
There’s just a melancholy child singing
Draw some moonlight for the lonely night sky

Chinese lyrics

为寂寞的夜空画上一个月亮
把我画在那月亮的下面歌唱
为冷清的房子画上一扇大窗
再画上一张床

画一个姑娘陪着我
再画个花边的被窝
画上灶炉与柴火
我们一起生来一起活

画一群鸟儿围着我
再画上绿岭和青坡
画上宁静与祥和
雨点儿在稻田上飘落

画上有你能用手触到的彩虹
画中有我决定不灭的星空
画上弯曲无尽平坦的小路
尽头的人家梦已入

画上母亲安详的姿势
还有橡皮能擦去的争执
画上四季都不愁的粮食
悠闲的人从没心事

我没有擦去争吵的橡皮
只有一只画着孤独的笔
那夜空的月也不再亮
只有个忧郁的孩子在唱
为寂寞的夜空画上一个月亮

Ever since the day I started forming memories
I’ve lived like a damn good-for-nothing
Suck at studying, can’t win at fighting
Tell me what I’m supposed to do
I go home, old man tells me
You gotta study hard, be an upright person
If you’ve got nothing better to do, watch the news, pay attention to national issues
When you graduate, take the civil service exam
After returning to my room, I thought it over
Can’t help but feel that this isn’t appropriate
I’m an artsy dude, why become a civil servant?
I’ve got a dream I want to achieve
Fast forward 20-some years, graduated from college
Then I found out the ground is covered with artsy dudes
I can only take up my guitar, bravely face life
In my heart, quietly say to myself

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me

People don’t dare believe how fast time goes by
They say that the end of the world is near
I still want to marry a girl, give myself to the revolution
Tell me is this possible?
Look at the post-80s generation, the so-called miserable youths
Working their asses off for houses and cars
Salaries aren’t increasing, cost of living goes up faster than Liu Xiang
Who decided that my dad isn’t Li Gang?

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me
My youth is gone, it took away my dreams
I wish that when I raise my head, what I see is the chalk thrown at me by the teacher
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my faith
Another 30 years and we’ve all got white hairs
Let’s continue screaming rock ‘n’ roll

Chinese lyrics

从我记事的那一天起
我就活的他妈像个孙子
学习学不好,打架还打不过人
你说这叫我怎么整
回到家里,老爷子对我说
你要好好学习,好好做人
没事也看看新闻,也关心国家的事
将来毕业咱考个公务员
回到屋里,咱是想了又想
总觉得这个事它不靠谱
咱一个文艺青年,靠什么公务员
咱还有梦想他要去实现
一晃二十几年,大学就毕了业
才发现满地都是文艺青年
咱只能抱着吉他,勇敢地面对生活
在心里悄悄地对自己说

老子的青春走了,他带走了我的童年
想起了小时候,我们在柳树上 逮个天牛还要干个仗
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的回忆
你看那阳光下,在池塘边,精着钩子的就是老子

时光快的让人就不敢想
传说世界末日就要来啦
咱还想娶个媳妇,把自己献给革命
你说这事它能实现吗
看看八零后,所谓的苦逼青年
都在为了房子车子奋斗着
工资不见涨,物价它赛刘翔地跑
你说谁叫咱爹不是李刚

老子的青春走了,他带走了我的童年
想起了小时候,我们在柳树上 逮个天牛还要干个仗
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的回忆
你看那阳光下,在池塘边,精着钩子的就是老子
老子的青春走了,他带走了我的梦想
多想抬起头,我看到的 是老师丢来的粉笔头
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的信仰
再过三十年我们都已白头
我们继续高喊rock 'n' roll

Before afternoon
Is sleepy time
I’m by the innermost bookshelf
Dozing off, staring at the sky

Before afternoon
Is a time of one’s own
I’m in the corner smoking
Blow out mist, 2 to 3 rings

Look, look, look, look
Noon clouds drift slowly
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
When will they obscure the brilliant sunlight?

Before afternoon
Is a time of freedom
I’m at a lake with no people
Singing how fresh is the sunlight

Before afternoon
Is a time for dreaming
Clouds can’t hide the autumn warmth
Who’s smiling sweetly in their dream?

Listen, listen, listen, listen
Who’s been singing the whole time?
Softly, softly, softly, softly
As if the autumn day was chirping in your ear

Look, look, look, look
Noon clouds drift slowly
Slowly, slowly, slowly, slowly
When will they obscure the brilliant sunlight?
Listen, listen, listen, listen
Who’s been singing the whole time?
Softly, softly
As if the autumn day was chirping in your ear

Before afternoon
Is the mellowest time
Suddenly everything
Fades into pre-afternoon

午后以前
属于困倦的时间
我在书架的最里面
打着瞌睡望着天

午后以前
属于自己的时间
我在角落里抽着烟
吹起云雾两三圈

你看,你看,你看,你看
正午云儿走得缓
好慢,好慢,好慢,好慢
何时遮住日光灿

午后以前
属于自由的时间
我在没有人的湖边
唱着日光好新鲜

午后以前
属于做梦的时间
云也藏不住秋意暖
谁在梦里笑得甜

你听,你听,你听,你听
谁的歌儿唱不停
好轻,好轻,好轻,好轻
像是秋日耳边鸣

你看,你看,你看,你看
正午云儿走得缓
好慢,好慢,好慢,好慢
何时遮住日光灿
你听,你听,你听,你听
谁的歌儿唱不停
好轻 好轻
像是秋日耳边鸣

午后 以前
是最慵懒的时间
突然间 一切都
消散在下午以前

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, smoking
I’m burning time
Year after year

Won’t keep thinking about yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
Also won’t wait for tomorrow
Getting through today

Reflect from every day’s experience
Sing every day’s joy and sorrow
Drink a cup of coffee without sugar
Taste many flavors (within)

Maybe there are tears
Maybe there will be regret
Maybe this is what makes it perfect
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

Just like this, day after day
Just like this, staring into space
I’m enjoying time
Year after year

It’s too late to wait for yesterday
Today will quickly become the past
It’s also too late to wait for tomorrow
Got through today

This moment’s experience
This moment’s joy and sorrow
This cup of coffee without sugar
Taste even more flavors (within)

Because there are tears
Because there’ll be regrets
Because it’s like this, it can be called beautiful
There’s only one life
Time flows like water
Maybe its ephemerality is what makes it beautiful

我燃烧着时间
一年一年

不再去想昨天
今天很快是从前
也不再等明天
过着今天

读每天的体会
唱每天的喜与悲
喝一杯无糖的咖啡
品出许多的滋味

也许有眼泪
也许要后悔
也许这样才完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

就这样一天天
就这样发着呆
我享受着时间
一年一年

来不及等昨天
今天很快是从前
也来不及等明天
过了今天

这一刻的体会
这一刻的喜与悲
这一杯无糖的咖啡
品出更多的滋味

因为有眼泪
因为要后悔
因为这样叫完美
生命只一回
岁月如流水
也许它短暂才美

There’s a polar bear
Sitting on the sofa in our house
Drinking cola through a straw
Says the North Pole is too hot now

He asks me, can we turn the air conditioning on?
I say "no nuclear power", gotta be environmentally conscious
He silently looks at my refrigerator
I say don’t even think about it, no way in hell you’ll fit

Woo, why are you looking at me like that?
It’s not like I’m a hunter
Woo, why are you looking at me like that?
You say I’m not drooling, it’s tears

Crawl into bed without even bathing
Snatched away my cotton quilt, but doesn’t use it
Sleeping on my body, makes me hot as hell
He says you finally understand my pain, huh?

Pointing at the iceberg in the TV news
Says his home doesn’t look like that now
Crying, says the fish have all been eaten by humans
And he says he’d like to eat all the humans

Woo, why are you looking at me like that?
Ten of me wouldn’t be enough to fill the gaps in your teeth
Woo, why are you asking if I live by myself?
What do want to do, what do you want to do?

Wawuwawuwa, he swallowed one of my hands
Smoking my cigarettes, but doesn’t carelessly discard the butts
Wawuwawuwa, he swallowed one of my legs
Take my credit card to go shopping online
Wawuwawuwa, he swallows my body
Wear my clothes and start to go to work
Wawuwawuwa, don’t hang my head on the wall

Wawuwawuwa, living happy days
Wawuwawuwa, are these happy days?

有一只北极熊
坐在我们家的沙发上
用吸管喝着可乐
说北极现在太热啦

他问我 能不能开个冷气
我说核电归零要环保啊
他默默看着我的冰箱
我说你想都别想进去啊,鬼才装得下

呜 你干嘛这样看着我啊
我又不是猎人啊
呜 你干嘛这样看着我啊
你说哥流的不是口水是眼泪啊

没洗澡就爬上床
抢走我的棉被却不盖啊
睡在我的身上,想热死我啊
他说你终于明白我的苦了吧

指着电视新闻里的冰山上
说他家现在才不是长那样
哭着说鱼都被人类吃光光
而他也想把人类吃光光

呜 你干嘛这样看着我啊
十个我也不够你塞牙缝啦
呜 你干嘛问我是一个人住吗
你想干嘛,你想干嘛

哇呜哇呜哇 他吞了我的一只手啊
抽着我的烟却不会乱丢烟蒂啊
哇呜哇呜哇 他吞了我的一只脚啊
拿着我的信用卡上网去shopping啦
哇呜哇呜哇 他吞了我的身体啊
穿上我的衣服,开始去上班啦
哇呜哇呜哇 别把我的脑袋挂在墙上

哇呜哇呜哇 过上好日子啦
哇呜哇呜哇 这是好日子吗

This world is too crowded
I have a small vegetable plot
This place is far from the 107
No smog or car fumes

My home isn’t in the big city
No need to smile at everyone you meet
No need to strive for money and power
I just need to make sure my tomatoes are clean

You take a Bombardier to go up in the air
My tomatoes are clean
When you land you drive a Ferrari
My tomatoes are clean

You wear a Rolex on your wrist
My tomatoes are clean
You wear Hermès around your waist
My tomatoes are clean

This world is too crowded
I have a small vegetable plot
This place is far from the 107
No smog or car fumes

My home isn’t in the big city
No need to smile at everyone you meet
No need to strive for money and power
I just need to make sure my tomatoes are clean

Your body is covered in Boucheron
My tomatoes are clean
You’ve sprayed Chanel from top to bottom
My tomatoes are clean

Tonight you’re lodging in the Burj Al Arab
My tomatoes are clean
You serve Martell at a fancy party
My tomatoes are clean

My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean
My tomatoes are clean

你全身都是宝诗龙
我的番茄是干净的
你上下都喷着香奈尔
我的番茄是干净的

你今晚下榻在帆船
我的番茄是干净的
你觥筹交错马爹利
我的番茄是干净的

我的番茄是干净的
我的番茄是干净的
我的番茄是干净的

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?

She came to listen to my concert
First love at 17, the very first date
The boy stood in line all night for her
Half a year’s savings, bought a pair of tickets

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
A three year relationship, ended with a single letter
She remembers the horn on the platform urging them towards farewell
Playing my song, crying along with others
Hey, crying with others

She came to listen to my concert
Love at 25, a radiant vision
Boyfriend sent roses to someone else behind her back
She ignores the phone, night after sleepless night listening to music

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
Adults split up and then always act like it’s no big deal
With friends, drink and karaoke
Sing my song and cry along with the image on screen
Hey, cry along

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
At 33, how precious is true love
Young girl begs her to relent
Let the man decide who to fly away with
Hey, who’s flying away to a faraway place

My song enchanted her, my song broke her heart
She’s trying hard not to look tired
Time hears us singing that we have no complaints and no regrets
To the sound of applause, sing oneself to tears
Hey, sing oneself to tears

She came to listen to my concert
A woman over forty listening to music, very beautiful
The child asks her why she’s crying
The man by her side, long since slipped into slumber
She quietly listens to our concert

她来听我的演唱会
在十七岁的初恋,第一次约会
男孩为了她彻夜排队
半年的积蓄,买了门票一对

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
三年的感情,一封信就要收回
她记得月台汽笛声声在催
播我的歌陪着人们流泪
嘿 陪人们流泪

她来听我的演唱会
在二十五岁恋爱,是风光明媚
男朋友背着她送人玫瑰
她不听电话,夜夜听歌不睡

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
成年人分手后都像无所谓
和朋友一起买醉卡拉OK
唱我的歌陪着画面流泪
嘿 陪着流眼泪

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
在三十三岁真爱那么珍贵
年轻的女孩求她让一让位
让男人决定跟谁远走高飞
嘿 谁在远走高飞

我唱得她心醉,我唱得她心碎
她努力不让自己看来很累
岁月在听我们唱无怨无悔
在掌声里唱到自己流泪
嘿 唱到自己流泪

她来听我的演唱会
在四十岁后听歌的女人很美
小孩在问她为什么流泪
身边的男人,早已渐渐入睡
她静静听着 我们的演唱会

On the way home from work
Became wet and rainy
Slowly walk
Treat it as a stroll in the rain
Lovers holding hands
Avoiding the rain in the station
I don’t have the heart to disturb them
Lower my head and walk over
In their vicinity, time came to a stop
Rainy day became a subtle poem
Looking on as they hail a taxi
My eyes follow the wetness

The night darkened quickly
The last train still hasn’t come, hasn’t come
Breath out fog
In the air it disperses, disperses
There’s only me left on the platform
Feels like the person I’m waiting for didn’t show up
Not sure if I missed him or if he’s yet to arrive

Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train

Quietly sit
Idly thinking
Take out my phone and see reflected
The image of myself
Feel a little hapless
Maybe because
The wind has been blowing the whole time
Waited for a rather long time
Feel a little embarrassed
Passerby glances at me
Continues walking forward
Rain suddenly fell hard, then suddenly fell softly
I’m a little anxious but also helpless

The night darkened quickly
The last train still hasn’t come, hasn’t come
Breath out fog
In the air it disperses, disperses
There’s only me left on the platform
Feels like the person I’m waiting for didn’t show up
Not sure if I missed him or if he’s yet to arrive

Night becomes ever colder, I rub my hands
Want to get some warmth, but it’s no use
I’m even getting a bit pissed off
While sighing, I lift my head
Faintly see hope coming closer
Couldn’t help but dash into the rain
A small pleasant surprise after disappointment
Leave misfortune in the mud
Lean against the window zoning out
Blurred vision, how relaxing
Stop for a while, pass a station
Some time passes, go towards the next station
Warm last train
Other than the driver, there’s only me in the car
Lazily hum a song
It feels like I’m the only one left in this world

Chinese lyrics

下班的路
变得湿漉
慢慢走
当是雨中散步
牵手的情侣
在站台躲雨
不忍心打搅
低头走过去
时间 在他们周围静止
雨天 变成微妙的小诗
看着 他们拦下的士
我的眼睛跟着潮湿

夜黑的很快
末班车还不来,不来
呼出的雾气
在空气中消散,消散
只剩我自己在站台等待
感觉就像等的人没来
不确定是错过还是在未来

Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train
Waiting for the last train

安静坐着
随便想着
掏出手机我看到反射
出的那个我
有些许狼狈
可能是因为
风一直在吹
等了有点久
感觉有点糗
路人看了看我
继续往前走
雨 忽急又忽缓
我有点着急又无奈

夜黑的很快
末班车还不来,不来
呼出的雾气
在空气中消散,消散
只剩我自己在站台等待
感觉就像等的人没来
不确定是错过还是在未来

夜越来越冷,我搓着手
想得到温暖但没有用
甚至开始有点恼火
叹息的时候我抬起头
隐约看希望靠近
忍不住冲进雨里
失望过后的小惊喜
把落魄丢在泥泞
靠着车窗在发呆
视线模糊好舒缓
停了一会,过一站
过了一段,往下一站
温暖 的末班车
除了司机车厢只剩我
慵懒 的哼起歌
这个世界好像只剩我

Challenge #4: The bright star is you, the dim star is me

Use the translated English lyrics below to find the title and artist of the song. Bonus points for providing a video or audio link. A short audio clip is provided as an additional hint, should you need it.
 



In the night sky
So many stars
Bright one is you
Dim one is me

In the wilderness
Flowers in the wind
Red one is you
Green one is me

Between heaven and earth
So many landscapes
Blue mountain is you
Small river is me

In life
So much that is ephemeral
Cloud is like you
Cool breeze is like me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

The day will come when we both leave
In turn you forget me
In turn I forget you
Thinking of this makes my heart shatter
Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

 

Only that night sky’s moonlight understands me

Challenge #3: Darling Orpheus, please sing us a song

Use the translated English lyrics below to find the title and artist of the song. Bonus points for providing a video or audio link. A short audio clip is provided as an additional hint, should you need it.

 



Darling Orpheus

Please sing a song
You pluck the lyre strings
Mountains and seas are all moved
Mesmerized by your song

Pitiable Orpheus
Please don’t cry
That despicable poisonous snake
Took away Eurydice
You narrate your grief through song

Weary Orpheus
You walked seven days and seven nights
Arrive at the foothills of Mount Tartarus
That god who can resurrect her
I want to use my sincerity to trade

The golden lyre’s light
Shines through the perpetual darkness
You lightly stroke the strings
The wandering souls
Weep sympathetic tears

Darling Orpheus
Don’t forget your promise
Eurydice is just behind you
Feel the warmth of sunlight
How could you possibly lose her again?

Pitiable Orpheus
Your song contains nothing but sorrow
He lost Eurydice forever
All that’s left is ceaseless
Longing for her

Oh my Orpheus
Those who can’t have you
Who can’t hear your song
In rage and disappointment tear you to shreds
Toss you into the sea along with the lyre

Darling Orpheus
Those streets you walked through
Nightingales circling in the air
Listen to her song
Moves you like nothing else

Challenge #8: I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

Use the translated English lyrics below to find the title and artist of the song. Bonus points for providing a video or audio link. A short audio clip is provided as an additional hint, should you need it.
 



I think I should calm down to think about some words
I think I should calm down to walk a path
I think I should calm down to read a book
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

I think I should calm down to sleep a spell
I think I should calm down to think about someone
I think I should calm down to forget those things
I just want to calm down to reflect on myself

When everything starts to calm down
Calm enough for me to hear a composed and quiet heartbeat
Calm like clouds
Calm like air
Calmly and gradually I get used to it

Translation: https://www.notion.so/5ee0e416256c4ca3a8110fd03004af80

Chinese lyrics

我想应该静下来想一些话
我想应该静下来走一段路
我想应该静下来看一本书
我只想静下来反省自己

我想应该静下来睡一个觉
我想应该静下来想一个人
我想静下来忘掉那些事情
我只想静下来反省自己

当一切都开始静下来的时候
静的可以让我听到平和安静的心跳
静的象云
静的象空气
静静的我开始渐渐的适应

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

我想成为 更好的自己
我想快乐地 为自己歌唱
