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

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~

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

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.

Title: 虫的触角。
Artist: 诺尔曼
Link: https://artist.douban.com/m/nuoerman/tracks?play=tSebuc&pl=pSpjsllq9p&pz=1
Translation: https://www.notion.so/b956edac59c14645b6abe10f7de2ae3e

Chinese lyrics

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

Chinese lyrics

女娲娘娘补了天
剩下块石头成华山
鸟儿背着那太阳飞
东边飞到西那边

为什么天空变成灰色
为什么大地没有绿色
为什么人心不是红色
为什么雪山成了黑色

为什么犀牛没有了角
为什么大象没有了牙
为什么鲨鱼没有了鳍
为什么鸟儿没有了翅膀

天空和大地做了伴
鸟儿围着那太阳转
华山和黄河做了伴
田里的谷子笑弯腰

为什么沙漠没有绿洲
为什么星星不再闪烁
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

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

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

Chinese lyrics

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

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

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

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

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

Something you didn’t personally ignite
That can’t be called a flame
Something you didn’t personally touch
That can’t be called a jewel
You ah you
Finally appeared
We only met by chance
This heart was smashed to pieces
The entire world completely fell apart

 

Someone who isn’t personally killed by you
Has absolutely no reason to continue living
You ah you
Finally appeared
We only met by chance
This heart was smashed to pieces
The entire world completely fell apart

 

If this life must end
Then I must die by your hands
Then I must die by your hands
Then I must die by your hands

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

Chinese lyrics

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
我也是啊,这是缘分吧
嘿姑娘姑娘,饿了吃饭吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧

嘿姑娘姑娘,长发披肩吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧
嘿姑娘姑娘,爱扎小辫儿吗
我也是啊,这是缘分吧

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

就这样一天天
就这样抽着烟
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

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 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

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

大家好,我是王强,吉他老师王强
我给大家调调弦
首先你弹一下E弦,我听一听准不准
诶呦,你这个不准,往左转30度

不准,不准,再往右转30度
还是不准,再转30度
老师,我拧到头了都
哦,拧到头就准了

王强是一个吉他老师
他不是一个合格的老师
将一条弦左边先转30度
右边,再转回了30度

王强是一个吉他老师
是一个误人子弟的吉他老师
他有一个价值连城的
木吉他调音器

同学们,我跟你们说
跟我学琴,必须买我的调音器
我的调音器3千块钱
内幕价2千,拿走

王强是一个吉他老师
还不如风华艺校的刘传老师
刘传老师教我们定音笛
王强,你只会30度

王强的调音器要3千块钱呢
我真是觉得有点太贵了
王强老师你不要误人子弟了
其实你就是一个骗子

王强真的是一个吉他老师吗?
其实他就是一个大骗子
王强真的是一个吉他老师吗?
其实他就是一个傻逼

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

The only home underneath the pedestrian bridge
He speaks to himself
Why does no one admire his paintings?
Old paintings that were once soaked by rain
Keeping him company in his struggle
His only assets are the sand in his shoes

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

How can he forget her?
Who once wore a snow-white wedding dress for the sake of love
Recalling the words once said under the Eiffel Tower

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them
Waits for her to come home, come home
Old French painter
His hands are clenching a cross
Just wants to return to 1968 to embrace her

Old French painter
Painting the one he loves
His tears are punishing him but he doesn’t wipe them

回忆着巴黎铁塔下曾说的话

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

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

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

Buskers, go from east to west
In summer on pedestrian bridges, in winter on the subway
Playing a chord, singing popular songs
No one applauds, spare change falls on the ground
Rolls toward legs, bend over to pick up
Every day trying to get three meals, no time to worry about dignity
Use pocket money to buy flatbread, bread is like the moon over my hometown
Hold it with both hands, swallow it whole
Cold day, fingers frozen, cover mouth and blow hot air (on hands)
Don't dare to drink much water, fear the call of nature
Life is like a delicate instrument string, busking is like begging
Be inside the stream of people, can't worry about anything other than the hunger in the stomach
Five grains enter the latrine, all that remains is the hunger in the stomach

夏天天桥上,冬天地铁里
弹着一个和弦,唱着流行的歌曲
没有人鼓掌,零钱落在地
滑在双脚边,弯腰拾起
日图有三餐,无暇顾尊严
零钱买大饼,饼似家乡月
捧了在手中,囫囵咽下去
天寒手指冻,捂嘴哈热气
不敢多喝水,生怕有内急
命如细琴弦,卖唱如行乞
同在人流中,只为腹中饥
五谷入茅厕,只剩腹中饥

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

直到她遇见她

码头路边树丛
可是 去哪里呢
海风深处回荡着

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

Chinese lyrics

记得早先少年时
大家诚诚恳恳
说一句,是一句

清早上火车站
长街黑暗,无行人
卖豆浆的小店冒着热气

从前的日色变得慢
车,马,邮件都慢
一生只够爱一个人

从前的锁也好看
钥匙精美,有样子
你锁了,人家就懂了

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

Title: 济南济南

Chinese lyrics

我抬眼是千佛山的轮廓
我闭眼是大明湖和护城河
趵突泉在我耳畔喷涌着
可我却不清楚
济南
到底是啥样的
它究竟是啥样的

穿旗袍的姑娘你在哪儿呢
说快板儿的大爷你在哪儿呢
膈应人的小么都长大了
半青的乡音有谁还会记得

那古街古巷都已经被拆了
民国的火车站我都未见过
青石板的泉水早已没了着落
户户垂杨的美景已成为传说

济南呐济南呐,你在哪儿呢
济南呐济南呐,我离家太远了
济南呐济南呐,我回不去了
济南呐济南呐,我想你了

古城的大西边儿有黄河流过
东南北那三边儿有山川包围着
内蒙古的风沙,它长驱直入呢
泉水仍滋润着城市的脉络

雄伟的城墙只剩个解放阁
霓虹灯的光照不亮护城河
燕喜堂的牌匾昏暗又没落
芙蓉街的店家,有几个是鲁菜呢

济南呐济南呐,你的根在哪儿呢
济南呐济南呐,你还剩下什么啊
济南呐济南呐,你知道吗
济南呐济南呐,我有多爱你呢

我抬眼是千佛山的轮廓
我闭眼是大明湖和护城河
趵突泉在我耳畔喷涌着
我只想对你说
济南
我想你了
我想回家了
