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.
 



Let me be a stupid person
Avoid the conflict between knowledge and privilege
Let me be a lowlife
Trade my toil with capitalists to get the youth I deserve

Just got off work, riding a bicycle home
Students buying breakfast cursing next to me
Boring news sliding under fingertips
I’m thinking of my middle class mom and dad

"After you grow up, you must be an educated person
Marry a good husband, live a happy life"
Everyone wants to be a person of means
But who will paint things, who will wipe floors
Who will be the wretched poor beneath our feet?

Just got off work, riding a bicycle home
Homeless people on the side of the road speaking to themselves
A filthy dog is sizing me up
I’m thinking of my mom and dad who have struggled their entire lives

Chinese lyrics

让我做一个愚蠢的人
避免知识和权力之间的矛盾
让我做一个低贱的人
用劳碌向资本家交换应得的青春

刚下班的清晨骑车回家
买早餐的学生在我旁边说脏话
无聊的新闻在指尖滑
我想起我那 中产阶级的爸爸妈妈

「你长大以后 要做个读书人
嫁个好老公,过幸福的一生」
大家都想要 做个有钱人
那谁来刷油漆,谁来擦地板
谁来当他们脚底下的穷困

刚下班的凌晨骑车回家
没有家的人在路边对自己说话
一只脏兮兮的狗在打量我
我想起我那 辛苦了一生的爸爸妈妈
