Lyrics Project #5: Impostor Monk - Hua Chenyu

Recommended Posts

Pop prodigy Hua Chenyu gives us a twisted cover of the classic Cui Jian song about a malicious individual who goes about pretending to be an itinerant monk. He’s deceptive, greedy, lacking in empathy, and more than a little lascivious. But you certainly can’t fault him for lack of confidence.

Lyrics

 

我要从南走到北
我还要从白走到黑
我要人们都看到我
但不知道我是谁

 

假如你看我有点累
就请你给我倒碗水
假如你已经爱上我
就请你吻我的嘴

 

我有这双脚我有这双腿
我有这千山和万水
我要这所有的所有
但不要恨和悔

 

要爱上我你就别怕后悔
总有一天我要远走高飞
我不想留在一个地方
也不想有人跟随

 

我要从南走到北
我还要从白走到黑
我要人们都看到我
但不知道我是谁

 

我只想看到你长得美
但不想知道你在受罪
我想要得到天上的水
但不是你的泪

 

(This verse is missing from this version of the song)
我不愿相信真的有魔鬼
也不愿与任何人作对
你别想知道我到底是谁
也别想看到我的虚伪
