I know very little about your life
As a child you carried a canvas bookbag to school
Your father told you to work hard
More than half of your life, plain tea, cloth shoes, food coupons

Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?
How high is it?

I know very little about your life
From the first time I saw you, you were very very old
How come time runs faster than the first-place runner?
In a flash your teeth all start to fall out

Please gift me a clock that turns in reverse
How great it would be for you to tell me the stories within your wrinkles
I’ll come with you to grow flowers, fish, stroll, feed birds
How great it would be for you to hold my child

Please gift me a clock that turns in reverse
How great it would be to return to the stories within your wrinkles
Go with you back to your hometown, even if it’s far away
Let me know about your life, OK?
Town gate, town gate, how high is it?

Chinese lyrics

你的一生我知道的很少
小时候背着帆布书包去学校
你的爸爸 告诉你要勤劳
生活大半辈子,粗茶布鞋粮票

城门,城门,几丈高
城门,城门,几丈高
城门,城门,几丈高
几丈高

你的一生我知道的很少
从第一次见你,你就好老好老
怎么时光比第一名还能跑
一晃神你的牙都开始掉

请赐予我一块倒着拨的钟表
给我讲讲你皱纹里的故事多好
陪你养花钓鱼 散步喂鸟
让你抱抱我的小孩该多好

请赐予我一块倒着拨的钟表
让我回到你皱纹的故事多好
陪你回趟家乡,哪怕迢迢
让我知道你的一生,好不好
城门,城门,几丈高
