It’s 3 in the afternoon
I’m lying in an unfamiliar room
My journey on this planet is about to end
The doctor says maybe next season

This letter contains many characters
Right now you might not know all of them
Once you reach fourth grade, you can probably understand it
Even if you can’t understand it, you can’t ask your mom
Because what’s below is a conversation between 2 men

Grades don’t need to be too good, but you have to stick with drawing
If you really like music, then you should give it a shot
Don’t listen to those old fogeys, don’t become a boring person
You like to eat and that’s great, but don’t get too fat

You can call me Jake, Jake
You can also call me Peter, Peter
We don’t ever need to stick to those formalities
After all, we’re friends

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

You ought to have inherited my baldness
But fortunately your dad is extremely hairy
Hope you aren’t like my son
Turned into a shuttlecock at 20
Everybody on the street could recognize him

You can start dating a little early, I think 17 is perfect
When you get in and out of cars, you should open doors; on rainy days bring a big umbrella
In your spare time, prepare some jokes; as much as possible, treat people out to eat
This is some of my experience, hope it can be of some help to you

You can call me Jake, Jake
You can also call me Peter, Peter
You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

There’s one more thing I must ask of you
You have to promise me
You must take care of her
My daughter
My most beloved, precious little daughter
Got it?

What should you call me? Jake!
What can you call me? Peter!
We don’t ever need to stick to those formalities
After all, we’re friends
You should call me Jake, Jake!
You should call me Peter, Peter!
You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong

You should be optimistic, interesting, kind
You should learn how to cook your own meals
You should quickly grow up to be a real man
At the same time don’t forget to take care of your skin

You can use any of the names in this world to address me
Just don’t call me waigong again

Chinese lyrics

现在是下午三点
我躺在一个不认识的房间
我在这颗星球上的旅程马上要结束
医生说 可能在下一个季节

这封信 有很多汉字
你现在 可能还不认识
等你读四年级了 就大约能看懂
就算看不懂 也不能问你妈妈
因为以下是两个男人之间的对话

成绩不必太好 但是画画要坚持
如果真的 喜欢音乐 那也要大胆地尝试
不要听那些老头的话,不要当一个无聊的人
喜欢吃东西是棒的 但也不能够太胖

你可以叫我杰克,杰克
你可以叫我皮特,皮特
我们从来不用拘泥于那些客套
谁叫我们是朋友

你要乐观,有趣,善良
你要学会 自己 做饭
你要快一些成为男子汉
同时皮肤也要注意保养

你应该 遗传了我的秃头
但好在 你父亲毛发旺盛
希望你不要像我儿子一样
二十岁就变成了羽毛球
整条街的人都认识他

可以早一点恋爱,我觉得十七岁刚好
上下车要帮开车门,雨天带一把大伞
没事多准备一些笑话,尽量要请客吃饭
这是我的一些经验,希望能对你有所帮助

你可以叫我杰克,杰克
你可以叫我皮特,皮特
你可以用这世界上的所有称呼来唤我
就是别叫我外公

你要乐观,有趣,善良
你要学会 自己 做饭
你要快一些成为男子汉
同时皮肤也要注意保养

还有件事跟你叮嘱
你可一定要答应我
你要照顾她
我的女儿
我最疼爱的不舍的小女儿
知道了吗

你要叫我什么?杰克!
你可以叫我什么?皮特!
我们从来不用拘泥于那些客套
谁叫我们是朋友
你要叫我杰克,杰克!
你要叫我皮特,皮特!
你可以用这世界上的所有称呼来唤我
就是别叫我外公

你要乐观,有趣,善良
你要学会 自己 做饭
你要快一些成为男子汉
同时皮肤也要注意保养

你可以用这世界上的所有称呼来唤我
就是不要再叫我外公
