Ever since the day I started forming memories
I’ve lived like a damn good-for-nothing
Suck at studying, can’t win at fighting
Tell me what I’m supposed to do
I go home, old man tells me
You gotta study hard, be an upright person
If you’ve got nothing better to do, watch the news, pay attention to national issues
When you graduate, take the civil service exam
After returning to my room, I thought it over
Can’t help but feel that this isn’t appropriate
I’m an artsy dude, why become a civil servant?
I’ve got a dream I want to achieve
Fast forward 20-some years, graduated from college
Then I found out the ground is covered with artsy dudes
I can only take up my guitar, bravely face life
In my heart, quietly say to myself

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me

People don’t dare believe how fast time goes by
They say that the end of the world is near
I still want to marry a girl, give myself to the revolution
Tell me is this possible?
Look at the post-80s generation, the so-called miserable youths
Working their asses off for houses and cars
Salaries aren’t increasing, cost of living goes up faster than Liu Xiang
Who decided that my dad isn’t Li Gang?

My youth is gone, it took away my childhood
Think back to my early days, we caught long-horned beetles in willow trees and fought
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my memories
Look, under the sun, by the pond, the buck naked one is me
My youth is gone, it took away my dreams
I wish that when I raise my head, what I see is the chalk thrown at me by the teacher
My youth is gone, it can’t take away my faith
Another 30 years and we’ve all got white hairs
Let’s continue screaming rock ‘n’ roll

Chinese lyrics

从我记事的那一天起
我就活的他妈像个孙子
学习学不好,打架还打不过人
你说这叫我怎么整
回到家里,老爷子对我说
你要好好学习,好好做人
没事也看看新闻,也关心国家的事
将来毕业咱考个公务员
回到屋里,咱是想了又想
总觉得这个事它不靠谱
咱一个文艺青年,靠什么公务员
咱还有梦想他要去实现
一晃二十几年,大学就毕了业
才发现满地都是文艺青年
咱只能抱着吉他,勇敢地面对生活
在心里悄悄地对自己说

老子的青春走了,他带走了我的童年
想起了小时候,我们在柳树上 逮个天牛还要干个仗
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的回忆
你看那阳光下,在池塘边,精着钩子的就是老子

时光快的让人就不敢想
传说世界末日就要来啦
咱还想娶个媳妇,把自己献给革命
你说这事它能实现吗
看看八零后,所谓的苦逼青年
都在为了房子车子奋斗着
工资不见涨,物价它赛刘翔地跑
你说谁叫咱爹不是李刚

老子的青春走了,他带走了我的童年
想起了小时候,我们在柳树上 逮个天牛还要干个仗
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的回忆
你看那阳光下,在池塘边,精着钩子的就是老子
老子的青春走了,他带走了我的梦想
多想抬起头,我看到的 是老师丢来的粉笔头
老子的青春走了,他带不走我的信仰
再过三十年我们都已白头
我们继续高喊rock 'n' roll
