Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books, fix bowls

Popsicles and ice cream bars, soymilk and deep-fried breadsticks
These are the flavors that can’t be erased from my childhood
Big bowl of sheep innards, egg with rice wine
Along with people’s customs, (these foods) have been forgotten due to the changing of the times

Old Bai at the alleyway, he’s singing a folk song
Whatever he’s singing, whatever it is, you listen
Sharpen knives and scissors, the wind is blowing the willow branches
We sit on the riverbank singing the local folk songs from that time
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They smoke and smoke their water pipes, letting time slip away
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Throw away your rouge now and come with me to seek tomorrow
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Even if time becomes lightning fast, I’ll still live brilliantly

Water so clear, mountain so green
This is the childhood from my dreams that I can’t return to
Winter’s kang (heatable brick bed), summers’s sun
Spring’s flowing brook, autumn’s wine
At that end of the mountain, Yellow River’s upper reaches
Comes a sound, you listen

Sharpen knives and scissors, wind is blowing on the wharf
They sit on the riverbank looking at that western mountain’s sun
Sharpen knives and scissors, people from the big mountain
They’re drinking tea from teacups with lids and gossiping about the boss family’s unexpected misfortunes
Sharpen knives and scissors, my loved one
Put aside your worries and come with me to seek your childhood
Sharpen knives and scissors, I’m a happy person
Just keep walking, don’t look back

Sharpen knives and scissors, collect used books
Collect used books, return to your hometown

Chinese lyrics

砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,收废书哟,收上废书,换碗哟

冰棍儿雪糕,豆浆油条
这是我童年里抹不去的味道
大碗儿的羊杂,鸡蛋加老酒
也随着时间的变迁和人们的习惯被遗忘

巷口的老白,他唱着歌谣
他唱的什么,唱的什么,你听
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,风吹着柳枝
我们坐在河岸边唱着那儿时的歌谣
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,大山的人哟
他们磕巴磕巴烟袋让时光就这么溜走
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我亲爱的人呐
快丢掉你的胭脂和我去寻找明天
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我是快乐的人呐
就算时光飞快我一样活得精彩

清清的水哟,绿绿的山哟
这是我在梦里却回不去的小时候
冬天的炕哟,夏天的日头
春天的溪流,秋天的酒
在山的那头,黄河的上游
传来一个声音,你听

砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,风吹着码头
他们坐在河岸边看着那西山的日头
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,大山的人哟
他们喝着盖碗儿茶扯着东家的三长两短
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我亲爱的人呐
快放下你的忧愁和我去寻找小时候
砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,我是快乐的人呐
就一直走,不回头

砌刀磨剪子嘞唉嘿,收废书哟
收上废书哟,回家乡喽
