If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t just buy two packs of Red Lanzhou
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I should’ve spent more time with the honeys

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t have bought a new outfit during spring festival
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I shouldn’t have rented a car to go home and pretend to be rich

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I shouldn’t have given my mahjong set to a friend
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I would fill a barrel full of liquor

If I knew I’d be staying at home so long
I wouldn’t have spent 500 on a perm
If I knew the village roads would be blocked
I should’ve taken a girl out to party hard

Title: 早知道在家这么久
Artist: 张尕怂
Link: https://youtu.be/ty7isH-sB0o
Translation: https://www.notion.so/2f2f5db57cc44fe8b801f5bc5e846873

Chinese lyrics

早知道在家待了这么久
我也不会只买两包红兰州
早知道村里封了路口
我就应该多拉拉妹妹的手

早知道在家待了这么久
我也不会过年买身行头
早知道村里封了路口
我就不该租车回家装富有

早知道在家待了这么久
我就不该把麻将送朋友
早知道村里封了路口
我也要把大桶灌满酒

早知道在家待了这么久
我也不会花五百去烫头
早知道村里封了路口
我就应该领上妹妹浪个够

We live on a hillside of the steppe
Beautiful skies, a fine life
One day, a big wild wolf appeared
Its wounds were terribly severe

You say, let’s heal him
I know you would think this way
Of course, anyway we don’t have any friends
Therefore the wolf became our friend

One day, I was eaten by the wolf
On the steppe where we often played
He said I was an extremely delicious meal
I said, you’re welcome

No problem, no problem, you can eat it for my sake
But take care not to eat too much
Thank you for taking this sweet revenge for me
Then can I humbly request that you
Devour his body and spirit
Let me become you

Title: 住进狼胃里
Artist: 昏鸦

Chinese lyrics

我们住在草原的山坡上
天空美丽,生活美好
有一天来了一只大野狼
它受了很重很重的伤

你说我们来医治它吧
我也知道你会那么地想
当然好阿,反正我们也没有朋友
于是狼成为了我们的朋友

有一天我被狼吃掉了
在我们常玩耍的草原
它说我是非常美味的一餐
我说别客气

可以可以的,你可以为我吃掉它
但小心别吃太饱了喔
谢谢你为我完成这甜蜜复仇
那就再麻烦你
吃掉它的身体和灵魂
让我成为你

Na ta c na ta sa
A tree has something to say
Na ta cei na ta c
A stringed instrument sings
Na ta c na ta sa
I fall down on the wild mountain side
Na ta cei na ta sa
Grass kisses my feet
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Open your hands and listen to the sand fall
My house caught on fire, you followed the flame's light to find me
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Stand on clouds, watch rain fall
My life cracked open, that's how sunlight came shining in
Na ta c na ta sa
Step in the red ocean, float on the river
Na ta cei na ta sa
I've walked through wilderness and deserts
Na ta cei na ta sa
My walking stick sprouted
Na ta c na ta sa
A pair of rainbows appear

Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Open your hands and listen to the sand fall
If a cloud doesn't cry, rain can't fall
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Stand on clouds, watch rain fall
If a seed doesn't die, how can wheat be born?

Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Open your hands and listen to the sand fall
My house caught on fire, you followed the flame's light to find me
Kei mo la jin na jiu kei mo la jin na jiu
Stand on clouds, watch rain fall
My life cracked open, that's how sunlight came shining in

Only when life cracks open
Na ta c na ta sa
Can the sun come shining in

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

Title: 我的番茄是干净的

Chinese lyrics

这个世界太拥挤
我有一片小菜地
这里远离107
没有雾霾和尾气

我家不在大城市
不用逢人都笑嘻嘻
不用争夺名和利
只要我的番茄是干净的

你上天就坐庞巴迪
我的番茄是干净的
你落地就开法拉利
我的番茄是干净的

你手上戴着劳力士
我的番茄是干净的
你腰里系着爱马仕啊
我的番茄是干净的

这个世界太拥挤
我有一片小菜地
这里远离107
没有雾霾和尾气

我家不在大城市
不用逢人都笑嘻嘻
不用争夺名和利
只要我的番茄是干净的

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
我的番茄是干净的

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

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?

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

Sun hasn’t risen yet, I open my eyes
Good morning, it’s now 6 AM
Change clothes, brush teeth, wash face, put on eyeliner
But forgot to eat breakfast

With great effort
Caught this subway train
After getting off the train
Realize that I’ve almost been squished into meat stuffing
Look down and check my wristwatch
I won’t be late
But must still add a little speed
Jog for a little while
Get through today, there’s no difference from yesterday

I would like to
Get home a bit earlier
To be not too tired
Stroke my guitar strings for a bit
Who could guess
After eating dinner it’s already 9
I want to jog 2 laps
To destroy my love handles

They say
You’d best do this and that
It should be like this and that
Go with the flow all the way to the end
But I don’t want to be facing life and saying sorry
Dadadida dadada
Saying sorry, didada dididi
Saying sorry

Dark clouds piled high in the sky
Groups of people walking blindly
Cling to momentary bursts of joy
Fill the void inside the heart
Use an invisible web
To link the world
Be consoled, be addicted

Flattering and fawning words
They always like to vie for social dominance
An environment where morals decline by the day
Corroding young souls

Sensationalist news
Blind adoration
False and exaggerated data
To manufacture topics
Manufacture topics

I’ve become a bird in a cage
Shed all the pride I once had
Saying things I don’t believe
Spare no effort to win their favor

Without realizing it I’ve become lonely and forlorn
Lonely and forlorn
But I’m powerless, hard to struggle free
This cage with an iron lock, an endless black hole

Please release me
Please discard me
Please kill me, dear master
Grant me my freedom
Please let me escape
Break free from this cage
Escape from this black hole

Please release me
Please discard me
Please kill me
Dear master

Please forgive me
Please guide me
Please help me attain my goal
Most beloved intimate

Smile
Kill me
Devour me

Dark clouds piled high in the sky
Groups of people walking blindly
Cling to momentary bursts of joy
Fill the void inside the heart

I guess you won’t be coming back tonight either
Time starts to get slower and slower
Got on the train going in the opposite direction of your home
Going towards a dark night that I'm not familiar with

Don’t fear the dark
When alone, embrace the darkness
Maybe I’ll
Look back fondly on the beautiful purity of blooming love
No matter how dark the night, at least loneliness will keep me company
Don’t fear the dark, maybe what I fear is not being able to see

Just treat it as you playing a small prank
Can’t bear to turn off this light
Perfume has left an impression on the unoccupied pillow
Reminds me I should’ve rehearsed being lonely long ago

Don’t fear the dark
When alone, embrace the darkness
Maybe I’ll
Look back fondly on the beautiful purity of blooming love
No matter how dark the night, don't want to fool myself into thinking it can console me
Don’t fear the dark, maybe what I fear is not being able to see

Close my eyes, as if I could instantly learn
Don’t fear the dark, I'd rather cry while thinking of you

Wind blows through trees full of leaves
Swaying, swaying
By the river, frogs leap
Between the grasses, crickets chirp
The moon is curved

Curved like a baby’s eyes
Laugh, laugh
Layers and layers of clouds
Like an umbrella being held up
Stars wink

Scarecrow’s general store has closed for the day
Sparrows, sparrows go home now
Tiny wings, pulling on the wind
Don’t be afraid
Wind chimes on the window can talk
Baby is laying their head on a camellia couch
Mama softly sings while her hand pushes the cradle

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis
Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Wind stops, moon is bright
Leaves cover the window lattice
Tiny crickets, crying ”zhengzheng”
Like the strings of an instrument

Sway, sway, sway to grandma’s house
Grandma sews a doudou (undergarment covering chest and abdomen) for the baby
Sway, sway, sway beneath the willow tree
Kitty curls up its tail and falls asleep

Sway, sway, sway to the wooden fence
On the fence grows a circle of morning glories
Sway, sway, sway to the grape trellis
Aiya, grapes are as big as the moon

Sway, sway, flowers bloom in dreams
Baby extends a hand to touch my cheek
Baby, baby, time is like a white horse
But I hope you won’t grow up
I really hope you don’t grow up

Hey mama
This world is constantly changing
There’s no way that my life would be exactly the same as yours

Hey mama
Your son has already grown up
Everyone has to walk their own path

Grandpa always says you didn’t have to bear the hardships of war
You always say we didn’t have to experience the Cultural Revolution
We’ll also say that the each generation is damn inferior to the previous one
But when we’re all old, everything under heaven belongs to those born in the 90s

Hey mama
Society always has many different points of view
What if I was gay?
Is it possible you’d look down on me?

In the past Bruno said
The earth revolves around the sun
But those so-called worldly people
Burned him alive

I have no chance of becoming awesome heroes like them
But I must tenaciously walk the path I’ve chosen
Even though I have nothing at all
However like Pavel (protagonist of Soviet novel How the Steel Was Tempered) I’m still totally satisfied (with life)

Mamama, dear mama, North Korean and South Korea, who is right?
Mamama, dear mama, look at North Korean and South Korea, who is wrong?
Mamama, dear mama, why can’t they peacefully get along?

Did your mom force you to marry?
Did your mom force you to marry?
If your mom didn’t force you
Why are you forcing yourself, forcing yourself?

Miss Ding is 28 this year
Bright and joyful, lovely as a flower
The house she likes isn’t big
Just wants a small cozy home

Spring festival comes, company vacation
Her mom makes prawns braised in oil
But she’s a little afraid
Afraid her mom will ask, do you have a boyfriend?

Mr Wang is 28 this year
Started a software business with partners
He works day and night, can’t ever go home
No choice but to work overtime banging out code

Spring festival comes, company vacation
His mom makes bullfrog boiled in Szechwan chili oil
But he’s a little afraid
Afraid his mom will ask, do you have a girlfriend?

Wednesday, second class of the day
A beautiful silhouette enters
She’s not Teacher Liu
Teacher Liu is sick

Her family name is Wang, she tells us
She’s our substitute teacher for the day
Her voice is very pleasant
She’s almost the same age as me

Miss Wang, I love you
I answer all of your questions
I haven’t yet experienced love
I’m not from around here

Miss Wang, I love you
These past days you’ve been in my dreams
Coming and going
Close my eyes, see you everywhere

Next Wednesday, second class of the day
Will Teacher Liu take a rest?
I know it’s not possible
Just want to see you

You're just like my sister
I often write to her
Want to think of you as her
Not logical at all

Miss Wang, I love you
When will you come to my class again
To answer your 100 questions
I’ll study hard
Miss Wang, I love you
Are you also not from around here?
People who left home don’t have it easy, have to rely on themselves

When I was young
My family had 6 members
Brothers and sisters
I was the youngest

Papa was handsome
Mama was young and pretty
Energetic workers
Kind characters

After the Cultural Revolution
There were 5 left
Papa was falsely charged
Left us early

Mama was helpless
Remarried to another place
Brothers and sisters
Went to the mountains to work in the countryside

From that time on
My family was basically split apart
Brothers and sisters
East west south north

Every holiday
Just well wishes from afar
Well wishes from afar
Well wishes from afar

Many years later
Look back once more
Brothers and sisters
Don’t need to be consoled

We all remember
Papa wants us to be sincere
And also kind
Never change

We remember
Mama wants us to be resolute
And also happy
Even today

We are singing
Papa and mama’s
Favorite song
Resolute, happy
Kind, sincere

We are singing
Papa and mama’s
Favorite song
Sincere, kind
Live happily

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

Like a top, every day spinning non-stop
Why the heck are you so crazy busy?
Like a powerful eagle flying up into the blue sky
That’s how it understands the white cloud’s loneliness
The lonely wind blows away the sky-filling snow
Wants to invite it to dance and flutter

Want to wish you a happy new year, happy new year
A happy smile makes you more beautiful
Want to wish you a happy new year, happy every day
Worries and vexations, cast them all aside
Wulalalalala ye ye
Wulalalalala oh ye ye
Gotta be happy on new year's, remember it

Like a satellite, or orbiting other people
Spinning to and fro, can it receive praise?
Like a peacock, looking bright and fresh
How many years did it wait until it could spread its tail?
A tiny heart hides a lot of dreams
The more setbacks, the more bravery is needed

Want to wish you a happy new year, happy new year
A happy smile makes you more beautiful
Want to wish you a happy new year, happy every day
Worries and vexations, cast them all aside
Wulalalalala ye ye
Wulalalalala oh ye ye
Gotta be happy on new year's, remember it

Every person in this world, what are they crazily chasing after?
Does living just make you more tired and more perplexed?
The moment the new year arrives, return to childhood
Once again search for that innocent happiness

Want to wish you a happy new year, happy new year
A happy smile makes this world beautiful
Want to wish you a happy new year, happy every day
A good mood leads to humming a song
Wulalalalala ye ye
Wulalalalala oh ye ye
Gotta be happy on new year's, remember it
Happy new year, happy happy!

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

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

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

No air conditioner, no cell phone, no DVD
At that time I had no idea what land ownership was
Summer rain falls on my chest
Mama says don’t catch a cold, run back home to study
Didn’t understand being poor, didn’t understand the ways of the world, didn’t understand love
At that time the friends by my side were everything
So-called dreams, anyway it’s not what I do for a living
Seems like I lost myself while living life

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know

From one side it looks like a ridge, from another side it looks like a peak, distance and height are all different
Cannot see the true face of Mt Lu, because I’m standing on the mountain
From one side it looks like a ridge, from another side it looks like a peak, distance and height are all different
Cannot see the true face of Mt Lu, because I’m standing on the mountain

Set the time forward one hour, because summer has arrived
Set the time back one hour, because summer has gone
But afterwards, why did we stop doing it?
You ask me, how the heck would I know
Set the time forward one hour, I can sleep earlier
Set the time back one hour, I should wear thicker clothes

You ask me, how the heck would I know

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

Don't need to turn the coil so tightly, treat passersby as scenery
Zoning out is the lesson of the day, getting lost is the goal of the moment
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow
I’m gon have my way, I’m totally right, the farther my mind the better the experience

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

No need to fight on the weekend, please don’t persist in going against the flow
Heart beats in time with the rhythm in my headphones, getting lost is the goal of the moment yeah
It’s been a good day, just let me chill
Let me face the other stuff when I wake up tomorrow
I’m gon have my way, I’m totally right, the farther my mind the better the experience

Rest a spell, let your body take a vacation
Find a coffeeshop to sit for a while
Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie
Pretend not to notice, don’t let your mood be hijacked

It’s been a good day, just let me chill

Rest a spell, bad weather’s no biggie

I'm gon have my way
Today was a good day

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~

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

Every day at 7 I wake up, semi-consciously I exit the dorm
No time to eat breakfast, because I have to go attend those stupid classes
Listen to these college professors, expressionlessly reading from the textbook
I lower my head and I’m also looking at my phone, without realizing it I enter dreamland

Sun is in the sky shining on the school, I’m carrying a bookbag filled with explosives
A flower finds out and smiles at me, a small bird says I’m badass
Fellow students aren’t worthless, tell me who’s worthless
You make me sit in the classroom, if I don’t show up you deduct points, this is how China’s colleges are

Basically, if you don’t attend class you fail it, if you fail it you have to retake it
If you retake it you gotta fucking pay up, a single class costs more than 200
You ask him what’s the point, what I’m learning is useless
He said you should just resign yourself, this is how China’s colleges are

Classmate Xiaohua, classmate Xiaohua
Your ideological stance is utterly wrongheaded
Classmate Xiaohua, classmate Xiaohua
Just go home already, just stop coming to study
