"On Top Of The World" in Chinese

Recommended Posts

I am looking for the lyrics of this song translated into Chinese.  It is an oldie - more than 45 years old - so, while it once may have been popular in China and had Chinese lyrics, that was a long time ago.  Google keeps pointing me to "Yesterday Once More".

How does 我站在世界之顶俯瞰万物 我唯一能找到的解释 。 。 。 sound? Not sure the translator managed to preserve that memorable rhyme of creation-explanation, though.

 

Anyway, you'll find the rest here, assuming you have access to Youtube:

Seems to me maybe thirty years ago or so 木匠兄妹 were pretty popular in China.

 

(The Andrews Sisters. Now their songs are oldies. But not the Carpenters'.)

Sorry. For copyright or other licensing reasons you'll sometimes get a "Blocked in Your Country" message on Youtube. Or maybe somebody decided the Carpenters are just too wholesomely American for Britain.

 

Trivia Extra: The Carpenters' father was born in China, son of missionaries.

 

EDIT: I just loaded up a VPN connecting through the UK and had no problem with the video.

This typo (auto-correct?) actually works too!

Don't cha just hate it when you engage in some wordplay or such, then someone comes along and ruins it by trying to explain it to the masses?

No haha, just a straight forward typo, no pun intended, but now you have pointed it out, I feel strangely proud, unjustly but still:shock:
