Cantonese lyrics of "胭脂扣" (yin ji kau) romanized ?


Recommended Posts

Could somebody give me the romanized version for the Cantonese lyrics of the song "胭脂扣" ? (it is performed by Leslie Cheung).

Here are the lyrics:

誓言幻作煙雲字 費盡千般心思 情像火灼般熱

怎燒一生一世 延續不容易 負情是你的名字

錯付千般相思 情像水向東逝去 癡心枉注

願那天未曾遇 只怕相依 那管見盡憾世事

漸老方華愛火滅人面變異 祈求在那天重遇

訴盡千般相思 祈求不再辜負我

癡心的關注 人被愛留住(問那天會重遇)

But the song was performed by Anita Mui, right (though both she and Leslie Cheung were in the film)?

Using the CantoDict Parser you can get this romanisation in Jyutping (errors in the lyrics are corrected and highlighted in colour) -

Listen to Anita Mui sing this song -> http://hk.youtube.com/watch?v=UIw9CNegz1A

Leslie Cheung's version from 2:07 min (you can't see Mui's face in this video probably because of copyright issue :)) -> http://hk.youtube.com/watch?v=YuuqzmIPOV8

Amend the jyutping for 重 to cung4
