Happy Birthday da lontano

Visto che l'altra volta era il compleanno di Gesù, oggi vi propongo Happy Birthday, canzone giapponese nonché sigla finale del primo film del Detective Conan, che ho incontrato guardando il film presumibilmente nell'anno scolastico 2010-2011, che ho poi lavorato e tradotto in Italiano penso entro il 2011 e sicuramente entro Pasqua 2012, e ho tradotto anche in Cinese entro l'estate del 2012. Ma tu guarda, c'è pure in Inglese! Chissà quando l'ho fatta… diciamo entro l'estate del 2012, perché quel file non l'ho poi più toccato a quanto ricordo. Ben, vediamo la canzone!


上手うまはなし出来できなくて
本当ほんとうはすまないとおもってる
しばらなやんでもたけど
うち つかれてねむってる
週末しゅうまつまち空気くうき
人熱ひといきれでかえ
ふかくためいきいたら
街灯がいとうスピーカーにされた

れらしい
言葉ことばならべても
つたわること など はじめからない

にぎやかなまちそら
おもげたこえ
何処どことおくのまち
あのひとへのHappy Birthdayハッピー バースデイ

なにちいさなトラブルで
ひとだかりにまれ
だれかのまらないジョークに
ほんすこしだけわらった
何時いつまち何処どこかで
きみ偶然ぐうぜん出会 であ っても
なにはなしたらいのか
いまでもからない

ひとずつ
こわれて世界せかい
ながしたなみだなん意味いみ

にぎやかなこのまちそら
おもげたこえ
何処どことおくのまち
あのひとへのHappy Birthdayハッピー バースデイ

にぎやかなこのまちそら
おもげたこえ
にぎやかなこのまちそら
おもげたこえ
何処どことおくのまち
あのひとへのHappy Birthdayハッピー バースデイ


Per bene esprimermi adesso non so,
Mi spiace tantissimo in verità.
Se anche un po’ mi sono preoccupato, però
Stancato alla fine e addomentato mi son.
Se la città s’affolla nel weekend, allor
L’aria pesante ti può soffocare,
E quando profondamente sospirai,
L’altoparlante il sospir sovrastò.

Anche a trovar
Le parole approprïate,
Non ho mai avuto un modo di dire questo a te.

Di ’sta città vivace verso il ciel per gridar
La voce alzai al mïo massimo, e arrivò,
Nella città lontana in cui si trovava,
A quella persona un Happy Birthday.

Qualcosa con piccola fatica viene
Dalla gran folla in fretta divorato
Ho riso ma veramente poco alla
Battuta assai scadente di qualcuno
Un giorno da qualche parte in questa città
Quando per mia fortuna incontrerò te
Che cosa andrà bene dirti? Non so:
Perfino adesso non capisco bene

In questo mondo
Che si rompe poco alla volta
Le lacrime che ho piante che senso hanno mai

Di ’sta città vivace verso il ciel per gridar
La voce alzai al mïo massimo, e arrivò,
Nella città lontana in cui si trovava,
A quella persona un Happy Birthday.

Di ’sta città vivace verso il ciel per gridar
La voce alzai al mïo massimo, e arrivò,
Di ’sta città vivace verso il ciel per gridar
La voce alzai al mïo massimo, e arrivò,
Nella città lontana in cui si trovava,
A quella persona un Happy Birthday.


因为我此刻无法很好地说话
我所以在思想着“真的对不起”。
虽然我连曾经一点儿尝试担心也,
到头来并是疲劳的我在睡着。
这个城市的周末上的空气,因为
为群是闷热的,也能使窒息。
我曾经发出深深的叹息时候,
它被路的扩音器曾压过。

哪怕我找
到为这么适切的言语,
我从来也都不才能够说声通信等。

向充满活力的这个城市的天,我
用所有我的努力曾经上我声音,
为了向此刻在遥远的个城市
的那个人尖叫Happy Birthday(生日快乐)。

什么又用着只有小小的不便
才能够被最大的人海吞下。
为谁人的地位低微的笑话,我
真的只有小一点儿曾笑出来。
在某时在这个城市的某处里,
我将会偶然和你遇见时候,
什么是如果我说就好的些话?
我连如今也无法好地了解。

逐逐渐渐
在打破破碎的世界里
为我曾经流下的眼泪有什么鸟的意思?

向充满活力的这个城市的天,我
用所有我的努力曾经上我声音,
为了向此刻在遥远的个城市
的那个人尖叫Happy Birthday(生日快乐)。

向充满活力的这个城市的天,我
用所有我的努力曾经上我声音,
向充满活力的这个城市的天,我
用所有我的努力曾经上我声音,
为了向此刻在遥远的个城市
的那个人尖叫Happy Birthday(生日快乐)。

Because I cannot express myself very well,
I am thinking that I’m very sorry indeed.
Although I tried a little while to worry of that,
Eventually I got all tired and dozed off to sleep.
The air inside this city at the weekends is
So stuffy for the crowds that you can get choked.
When I let out a very deep deep sigh,
The road speaker got it drowned out.

Even if I
Found appropriate words to say now,
A way to communicate I have never ever had.

Up to this lively city’s sky I raised my voice
With all the strength I could get from my lungs, for to shout
To that man who then was in a far city
And wish him to have a Happy Birthday.

Anything with very little trouble could be
Swallowed up by this enormous crowd.
To some person’s very insignificant joke
I really only laughed a little bit.
When sometime in some unkown place of this town
By chance by lucky chance I’ll meet with you,
What will be the words that I will do right to say?
Not even now do I well understand.

Here in this world
Tearing all apart bit by small bit,
The tears I have cried what meaning can they ever have?

Up to this lively city’s sky I raised my voice
With all the strength I could get from my lungs, for to shout
To that man who then was in a far city
And wish him to have a Happy Birthday.

Up to this lively city’s sky I raised my voice
With all the strength I could get from my lungs, for to shout
Up to this lively city’s sky I raised my voice
With all the strength I could get from my lungs, for to shout
To that man who then was in a far city
And wish him to have a Happy Birthday.

Tu scendi dalle stelle

Buon Natale a tutti! Quale occasione migliore per una canzone di Natale italiana tradotta in Cinese? E infatti oggi abbiamo la prima strofa di Tu scendi dalle stelle, tradotta in Cinese non più tardi del 30/12/2015. Dopodiché vedo che non era un gran che, quindi la rivedo, e ve ne presento due versioni, una vecchia, e una dell'11/8/18 alle ~22:15. Vediamole!


Tu scendi dalle stelle
O re del cielo
E vieni in una grotta
Al freddo e al gelo

Oh bambino mio divino
Io ti vedo qui a tremar
Oh Dio beato
Ah quanto ti costò
L'avermi amato!


你从星星下来的,
哦天的主人,
而来在一个洞穴
冷地冻结。

哦你神圣的小儿子,
我看到你这儿颤抖,
有福的上帝,
哦慈爱我为你
是花费太多啦!


你从星星下来啊,
哦天的主人,
而在冰冰冷冷的
洞穴来出生。

哦你神圣的小儿子,
我看到你这儿颤抖,
有福的上帝,
你对我的慈爱
叫你花太多啦!
Nǐ cóng xīngxīng xiàlái de,
Ó tiān de Zhǔrén,
Ér lái zài yī gè dòngxué

Ó nǐ shénshèng de xiǎo érzi,

Ó cí'ài wǒ wèi nǐ
Shì huāfèi tài duō la!

Ér zài bīngbīng lěnglěng de
Dòngxué lái chūshēng.

Ó nǐ shénshèng de xiǎo érzi,
Wǒ kàn dào nǐ zhèr chàndǒu,
Yǒufú de Shàngdì,
Nǐ duì wǒ de cí'ài
Jiào nǐ huā tài duō la!

Ombra nera

Parlando di compagni di viaggio, oggi vi propongo Negra sombra, canzone in Galiziano (no, non è Spagnolo, e nemmeno Portoghese) che ho tradotto in Cinese non più tardi del 4/12/2013, e poi in Italiano l'11/1/18 alle 10:18. Vediamola!


Cando penso que te fuches,
Negra sombra que me asombras,
Ó pé dos meus cabezales
Tornas facéndome mofa.

Cando maxino que es ida,
No mesmo sol te me amostras,
I eres a estrela que brila,
I eres o vento que zoa.

Si cantan, es ti que cantas,
Si choran, es ti que choras,
I es o marmurio do río
I es a noite i es a aurora.

En todo estás e ti es todo,
Pra min i en min mesma moras,
Nin me dexarás ti nunca,
Sombra que sempre me asombras.


当我来想你已离去
震惊我的黑色影子
到我的枕头的尾部
你给我嘲着点笑回来

当我想象你已远去
你在那个太阳出现
而你是那照亮的星
而你是那哼唱的微风

若人唱歌是你唱歌
若人哭泣是你哭泣
而你是那河流的咕哝
就是夜晚,就是黎明

你在全部而你是全部
为我,在我自己生活
而你永不会放弃我
总是震惊我的影子
Quando penso che sei andata,
Ombra nera che mi sorprendi,
Tu vieni sotto al mio cuscino,
Scherzando sul mio timore.

Quando immagino che non ci sei più,
Nel sole stessi tu appari,
E sei la stella che brilla,
E sei il vento che mormora.

Se cantan, sei tu che canti,
Se piangon, sei tu che piangi,
E sei il mormorio del fiume,
Sei la notte, sei l'aurora.

In tutto sei e sei tutto,
Ed abiti nel mio cuore,
E non mi lascerai mai,
Ombra che sempre mi sorprendi.


Dāng wǒ lái xiǎng nǐ yǐ líqù
Zhènjīng wǒ de hēisè yǐngzi
Dào wǒ de zhěntou de wěibù
Nǐ gěi wǒ cháozhe diǎn xiào huílái

Dāng wǒ xiǎngxiàng nǐ yǐ yuǎn qù
Nǐ zài nà gè tàiyáng chūxiàn
Ér nǐ shì nà zhàoliàng de xīng
Ér nǐ shì nà hēngchàng de wéifēng

Ruò rén chàng gē shì nǐ chàng gē
Ruò rén kūqì shì nǐ kūqì
Ér nǐ shì nà héliú de gūnóng
Jiù shì yèwǎn, jiù shì límíng

Nǐ zài quánbù ér nǐ shì quánbù
Wèi wǒ, zài wǒ zìjǐ shēnghuó
Ér nǐ yǒng bù huì fàngqì wǒ
Zǒngshì zhènjīng wǒ de yǐngzi

Sei così perfetto…

Oggi abbiamo una fantastica canzone indonesiana scoperta mettendola qui il 20/9/18 e tradotta in Siciliano il giorno stesso e in Cinese ancora Work In Progress oggi 21/9, ho due righe tradotte ieri e modificate forse anche un po' oggi. Questa si lega al tema delle compagnie importanti di "Se mi tieni la mano, posso camminare sulla mia strada" (scorso post) e "non mi lascerai mai" e dintorni del prossimo post, che sarà la canzone "Negra Sombra". A proposito delle glosse interlinea, uso spesso la costruzione aviri a + infinito per il futuro, e nelle glosse la traduco parola per parola, quindi se vedete "ho a amare", vuol dire "amerò", e simili. Ben, vediamo!


Kau begitu sempurna
Dimataku kau begitu indah
Kau membuat diriku
Akan slalu memujamu
Di setiap langkahku
Kukan slalu memikirkan dirimu
Tak bisa kubayangkan hidupku tanpa cintamu

* Janganlah kau tinggalkan diriku
Takkan mampu menghadapi semua
Hanya bersamamu ku akan bisa

# Kau adalah darahku
Kau adalah jantungku
Kau adalah hidupku
Lengkapi diriku
Oh sayangku, kau begitu #
Sempurna…

Kau genggam tanganku
Saat diriku lemah dan terjatuh
Kau bisikkan kata dan hapus semua sesalku

*

#
Sempurna…

#
Oh sayangku, kau begitu
Sempurna… sempurna…
Sempurna… sempurna!



你的内外都完美
在我眼中你多么秀美
你会让我永远都
为你感到爱的滋味
我每一次走一步
都会想起你就没事能隔阻
没有你的人生啊我一定是意想不出

* 如果你不来留跟我一起
我就不会面对所有的东西
只要跟你在一起我才可以

# 因为我的血是你
因为我的心是你
因我的生活是你
完成它的是你
哦亲爱,我告诉你你 #
完美啊

你来牵我的手
当我弱软而来落下的时候
你耳语些句话我的后悔就都擦走

*

#
完美啊

#
哦亲爱,我告诉你你
完美啊... 完美啊...
完美啊... 完美啊!
Tu si'sei 'ccussì pirfettu

Holding your hand, I can walk my road

Speaking of journeys, today we have a Min song called 牵阮的手 | Khan gún ê tshiú, "As you hold my hand". I translated it to English on Jun 20 2017 and to Romagnolo on Jun 14 16 17 18 (yep it took forever to get those rhymes) 2018. I met it in Sep 2014 via a CD of Min Nan songs a Chinese friend of me gave me as a present. On 15/12/18 I translated it to Vietnamese, on Xmas day I made a couple tweaks, and my Vietnamese friend corrected it (or should I say reworked it?) within 3/1/9. Between 21/12 and 22/12, I had a French version ready, which I made two tweaks to on 26/12. Then, while rolling in bed on 25/5/19 between ~2:30 and 3:23, I did the Hakka and then the Italian versions. Then I had a column to fill, so in the afternoon of 27/5/19 I tried Spanish and Portuguese, with little success, then overnight I continued Portuguese (to add it to the list of target languages :) ), and the following morning I completed the translation, with rhymes, and put it up here around 12:15. Sent it to a native at 23:40 on 2/6/19, woke up the following morning to see his 4:13 reply with three corrections: o->ou, sufrir->sofrer, tuda a vida -> toda a vida. Let's see the translations!


*牵阮的手
淋着小雨
牵阮的手
缀你跤步
牵你的手
行咱的路
牵你的手
毋惊艰苦



#虽然路途
有风有雨
我也甘愿
受尽苦楚
希望共你
白头偕老
牵你的手
行咱的路









* You hold my hand,
Through rain I walk.
You hold my hand,
With you I walk.
Holding your hand
I fear no pain.
Holding your hand
Our road I walk.

*

# Though on my road
There’s wind and rain,
I am willing
To face all pain!
I just hope to
Grow old with you.
You hold my hand,
Our road I walk.

Il viaggio

Dalla Divina Commedia passiamo oggi ad un altro "viaggio", quello raccontato nella canzone di Chieffo di oggi, intitolata proprio "Il viaggio", che ho tradotto in Cinese il 28/9/2016. Vediamo!


Fammi camminare ancora,
Ho perso tanto tempo
E non credevo che fosse così questo viaggio.
Ho incontrato per strada
Uomini con due facce
Che volevan rubarmi la voglia e il coraggio.

Non ho più né padre né madre
E non son meglio di loro
E i bambini già grandi ci guardano
E chiedono un segno.

La la lalallallalà.
Lalallallalà lalallallalà.
La la lalallallalà.
Lalallallalà lalallallalà.

Quando prendemmo il mare
Ero felice davvero,
Ti svelai tutto quello che Tu già sapevi:
La mia vita di prima,
La voglia di cambiare
E anche il nome di lei che tenevo segreto.

Tu ascoltavi tutti parlare,
Poi ci parlasti di Te,
Di quel mondo lontano lontano
Lontano, ma vero.

La la lalallallalà.
Lalallallalà lalallallalà.
La la lalallallalà.
Lalallallalà lalallallalà.

Poi caddi nel tranello
Dell'odio e del potere
E credevo di essere fuori dal gioco
E credevo di essere fuori dal gioco.

Ed ecco la città,
Con le sue mura d'oro,
Le sentinelle sulle torri,
Fiorita d'alberi e giardini:
Io non l'avevo vista mai,
Eppure c'ero nato
Ed era quella la città
Dove sarei tornato.

Così dentro la notte
Lasciai la compagnia:
Non potevo più essere uno di loro,
Non potevo più essere uno di loro.

Il sole del mattino
Mi trovò sulla strada
A rincorrere il tempo che avevo perduto:
Ho attraversato i monti,
Ho attraversato il mare
E ora voglio con Te continuare il mio viaggio.

Io Ti cerco in tutte le case,
A tutti parlo di Te
E quel mondo lontano lontano
Ora è sempre più vero!

La la lalallallalà.
Lalallallalà lalallallalà.
La la lalallallalà.
Lalallallalà lalallallalà.


请你让我继续走路,
已白废很久时间
我也曾不预期这趟旅行会这样啊。
我在路上遇到了
有两个脸庞的人,
他们想要偷窃我的欲望和勇气。

我再没父亲再没母亲,
我也不比他们好啊,
而已长大的孩子看我们
而问我们迹象。

啦啦啦啦啦啦啦
啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦
啦啦啦啦啦啦啦
啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦

我们下海的时候,
我那时真的快乐,
也给你暴露你所有已经知道的:
我以前的生活啊,
我的变动的欲望,
甚至她的我正在保密的那名字。

你来听到每个人说话,
然后来关于你说,
关于那个在远远的地方
但真正的世界。

啦啦啦啦啦啦啦
啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦
啦啦啦啦啦啦啦
啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦啦

我然后落入恼恨
和权力的那陷阱,
我也那时来相信我已经出局了,
我也那时来相信我已经出局了。

而城市就在那儿,
跟它金色的墙壁,
在塔楼上有一些哨兵,
里面的树和花园开花。
我从来没有看到它,
虽然有在那儿出生,
它也就是我的城市,
我要回到的城市。

我所以在夜间里
有来离开我的侪:
我一定再不可以是他们中之一,
我一定再不可以是他们中之一。

黎明破晓的太阳
看到我已在走路,
已经在追赶我已白费的时间啊:
我也走过了高山,
我也走过了大海,
我也现在想跟你继续我的旅行。

我在每个家都寻找你,
跟每人关于你说,
而那在远远的地方的世界
越来越真啊。

Fragments of the Divine Comedy

Speaking of "going to heaven and hell", as one of last post's songs ended, we have some fragments of the Divine Comedy today. We start off with Italian versions of the Latin Bible quotes found in some parts of the Comedy. The first tercet was translated on Nov 29 2010, the single line before Dec 21 2010, and the second tercet was first translated as «O figlio mïo, o dall’alto infusa / Grazia di Dio, sì come a te, a cuï / Due volte celestial porta è dischiusa?» no later than Jan 22 2011, then reworked on Aug 26 2012 to the present form, minus the last line, which then read «Due volte fu la porta al ciel dischiusa?» and owes its present form to a reworking from Aug 10 2018 at ~12:02, i.e. while writing this intro. Note that the rhymes of the Latin original were kept in the translation, so that these could effectively be substituted to the originals without ruining the rhyme scheme. Then, we have the beginning of Hell (4 tercets) in English, dating Jan 29 and Feb 6 2011, and the writing on the door of Hell in English, dating Jan 7 2011. Actually, I have a suspicion that 29/1 was supposed to be 29/11, otherwise why would I have «2010/2011» as the year? 19:26 23/8/19, «who're coming in» gets changed first to «who now come in», then to its present form. Anyways, let's see these translations!


Hosanna, Sanctus Dëus sabaoth,
Superillustrans claritate tüa
Felices ignes horum malacoth!
.

In exitu Israël de Ægypto


O sanguis mëus, o superinfusa
Gratïa Deï, sicut tibi cuï
Bis umquam cæli ianüa reclusa?


Nel mezzo del cammin di nostra vita
Mi ritrovai per una selva oscura,
Che la diritta via era smarrita.

Ahi quanto a dir qual era è cosa dura
Esta selva selvaggia e aspra e forte
Che nel pensier rinnova la paura!

Tant’è amara che poco è più morte;
Ma per trattar del ben ch’i’ vi trovai,
Dirò de l’altre cose ch’i’ v’ho scorte.

Io non so ben ridir com’io v’entrai,
Tant’era pien di sonno a quel punto
Che la verace via abbandonai.


Per me si va ne la città dolente,
Per me si va ne l’etterno dolore,
Per me si va tra la perduta gente.

Giustizia mosse il mio alto Fattore:
Fecemi la Divina Potestate,
La Somma Sapienza e il Primo Amore.

Dinanzi a me non fuor cose crëate
Se non etterne, e ïo etterna duro:
Lasciate ogne speranza, o voi ch’entrate.
Osanna, Santo Dio dell’universo,
Ch’allumi con soverchia luce tüa
I lieti fochi d’esto regno terso!


Allor ch’uscì Israële dall’Egitto


O sangue mïo, o dall’alto infusa
Grazia di Dio, sì come a te, a cuï
Due volte fu del ciel la porta schiusa?


Right in the middle of our life’s long walk
In found myself in forest dark astray,
For I had lost the right way I’d to walk.

Ah me! How hard it is a thing to say
What was this forest savage, rough and stern,
That in the thought renews fear and dismay.

So bitter, death is little more in turn;
But for to treat of what good I there found,
The rest which I there saw I’ll have you learn.

I can’t well say how I got on its ground,
So full of slumber I was at that point
I left the true way on which I was bound


Through me you go into the city of pain,
Through me you go to pain you’ll ne’er off shove,
Through me you go to people lost, insane.

Justice did make my highest Maker move:
The Divine Might did make my life begin,
And the Wisdom Most High, and the First Love.

Nothing at all did my starting time win
If not eternal, and fore’er I last:
Forsake ye all your hope, who do come in.

Who decided to split up? (or rather, lifelong only you)

This post links much better to two posts ago [which I believe refers to "How you speak", between which and this post there are two posts], because we have a breakup having gone on, and the singer nostalgically remembers the past, and is also waiting for him like two posts ago. We have two songs today: a Min one and a Mandarin one, sharing title (一生只有你 - lifelong only you) and tune. I met the Min song sometime in Spring 2013 (year 2 of Chinese) and the Mandarin one over half a year later sometime in year 3 of Chinese, probably before Christmas, and this motivates the order I present them in here. I translated the Min one to English on Jun 4 2017, and the Mandarin one… um, what was I thinking when I planned the post with two songs and didn't include the Mandarin one in the translation list? Welp, I'll have to translate it now. I did that on Aug 9 2018 at 23:20, and the next day at 11:23 I realized the damn captions with their suí spelled 水 had placed a spurious "wet" in my translation, and amended it to "nice". I also suspect 路 | lōo, "(the) road", should be 拢 | lóng, "all", but maybe I'm overthinking. I don't have any evidence of such misspellings from before, so I'll leave this be. Let's see these songs!


*我的泪因为你
变成粒星
我的心因为你
才有温暖的冬天
你的情为着为了
甘愿想甜
你一生我一生
回头我过去
路是遮尔这么
你一张我一张
退色褪色相片照片
有美丽的记持记忆
啥人甘先离开

#一生只有你
会当可以原谅我的脾气
一生只有你
会当可以体贴我的伤悲
啥物什么啥物什么
喘气呼吸
一句我爱你
才甘愿出嘴
啥物什么啥物什么
袂当不可以我的命换你
地狱天当我先去

My tears thanks to you
Turned into the brightest stars.
My heart thanks to you
Went through winters that were warm.
For your feelings for me,
You’d want sorrow, nothing sweet.
Your whole life my whole life
Looking at our past
Our road was so nice.
The two of us are both
Fading photographs
We have wonderful memories:
Who wanted first to leave?

There was only you
Who my character could forgive.
There was only you
To support me when I was sad.
Why is it, why is it?
Waiting for you I can’t breathe.
One thing: I love you,
I only just told you.
Why is it, why is it?
I cannot make my life change you,
And I’ll first go to heav’n or hell.


*我的泪因为你
变成天上的星星
我的心因为你
给我温暖的回应
你的请为了我
不管受多少委屈
你一生我一生
经过了多少
滂沱的风雨
每一个有你的
甜蜜深夜里
是美丽的回忆
从来都不忘记

#一生只有你
才能了解我的脾气
一生只有你
付出所有的真情意
为什么为什么
看到你在哭泣
一句我爱你
还深藏在心里
为什么为什么
所有的千言万语
最后变成对不起






* Wǒ de lèi yīnwèi nǐ
Biàn chéng tiān shàng de xīngxīng

My teardrops thanks to you
Became stars up in the sky
My heart because of you
Has become all full of warmth
And no matter how much grief
Your love for me has gone through,
Or how much pouring
Rainstorms there have been
Within my life or yours,
Every sweet deep night I've ever spent with you
Is a good memory
Which I will ne'er forget

There was only you
Who my temper could understand
There was only you
Who would show me so much true love
Why's it that why's it that
I see you crying now?
My own "I love you"
Still hides deep in my heart
Why's it that why's it that
All of the words we once shared
Have now turned to just "Sorry"?

Roosters vs. hens

On Dec 30 2017, at 12:30, Anton Xie sent me this audio clip of a 3:36 song. I liked it, and wanted to know what it said. With a long series of back-and-forth between me and him, I finally produced lyrics I could understand. Along the way, I used metadata magic to find out the song is titled 鸡公 vs. 鸡乸 | kai-kung vs. kai-mâ, just like this post, and somehow managed to find that the clip is sung over the instrumental and backup voice track of "Stoney", which is found on YouTube. I translated it in random order on Jan 24 2018. How does this link to the previous post? The only thing I can see is that there is some implication that she is lying about who the boy is to her (read the song to understand this), but all in all, it's a weak link, I probably had either this option or the choice to put it where no link was present. The fact last post's song was added after making this draft doesn't change the comment :). Let's see it!

Last night I happened to see you
A boy was on a motorbike with you
You said he was in your family
Please make me not think of you badlý

Was is your family so broad?
You said that was your adoptive elser bro
It is not like I'm full of jealousy
But you my girl just should not do so to me


Boys do so
And for them it's OK
But the girls
They cannot think this way
Roosters roost
And for them it's all righ'
If hens roost
It's time to cook gulai

Although you're hot and sexy too
And you think that I wouldn't dare leave you
Please make me not want to do so
I also have many relatives, you know

I say so
I hope you'll think again
How come you
Cannot think again
You make me say so
But you get worse this way
Coupled to boys
Left and right all day.
