不想長大 (Bu Xiang Zhang Da) by S.H.E.

December 14, 2010 at 12:14 am (*** Difficult, Chinese lyrics, Female Singers, Pinyin lyrics) ()


It barely took any time after my arrival in Taiwan in 2005 to become aware of the music of S.H.E. It played everywhere and at all hours, and was so catchy that, when S.H.E.’s 不想長大 album came out that year, it became one of the first Mandopop albums I ever bought. The ridiculous cutesy cover (which you can see here) also had something to do with my purchase, I think.

Five years later, I can’t say I’ve become an S.H.E. fan, but I’ve at least learned several of the ballads on the album. Still, it’s this title track that I still haven’t conquered. Despite the fact that the chorus is largely made up of common characters, its speed and rhythm make it a tongue-twisting nightmare. Great enunciation practice if you need it!

為什麼就是找不到 不謝的玫瑰花
wei shen me jiu shi zhao bu dao  bu xie de mei gui hua

為什麼遇見的王子 都不夠王子啊
wei shen me yu jian de wang zi dou bu gou wang zi a

我並不期盼他會有 玻璃鞋和白馬
wo bing bu qi  pan ta hui you bo li xie he bai ma

我驚訝的是情話竟然 會變成謊話
wo jing ya de shi qing hua jing ran hui bian cheng huang hua

為什麼幸福的青鳥 要飛的那麼高
wei shen me xing fu de qing niao yao fei de na me gao

為什麼蘋果和擁抱 都可能是毒藥
wei shen me ping guo he yong bao dou ke neng shi du yao

我從沒想過有了他 還孤單的可怕
wo cong mei xiang guo you le ta hai gu dan de ke pa

我突然想起從前陪我那個洋娃娃
wo tu ran xiang qi cong qian pei wo na ge yang wa wa

Chorus

我不想 我不想 不想長大
wo bu xiang wo bu xiang bu xiang zhang da

長大後 世界就沒童話
zhang da hou shi jie jiu mei tong hua

我不想 我不想 不想長大
wo bu xiang wo bu xiang bu xiang zhang da

我寧願 永遠都 笨又傻
wo ning yuan yong yuan dou ben you sha

我不想 我不想 不想長大
wo bu xiang wo bu xiang bu xiang zhang da

長大後 我就會 失去他
zhang da hou wo jiu hui shi qu ta

我深愛的他 深愛我的他
wo shen ai de ta  shen ai wo de ta

已經變得不像他
yi jing bian de bu xiang ta

我不想 我不想 不想長大
wo bu xiang wo bu xiang bu xiang zhang da

長大後 世界就沒童話
zhang da hou shi jie jiu mei tong hua

我不想 我不想 不想長大
wo bu xiang wo bu xiang bu xiang zhang da

我寧願 永遠都 笨又傻
wo ning yuan yong yuan dou ben you sha

我不想 我不想 不想長大
wo bu xiang wo bu xiang bu xiang zhang da

長大後 我就會 失去他
zhang da hou wo jiu hui shi qu ta

我深愛的他 深愛我的他
wo shen ai de ta  shen ai wo de ta

怎麼會 愛上別個他
zen me hui ai shang bie ge ta

為什麼水晶球裡面 看不出他在變
wei shen me shui jing qiu li mian  kan bu chu ta zai bian

為什麼結局沒歡笑 而是淚流滿面
wei shen me jie ju mei huan xiao er shi lei liu man mian

我願意在他回來前 繼續安靜沉睡
wo yuan yi zai ta hui lai qian ji xu an jing chen shui

但他已去到別座城堡 吻另一雙嘴
dan ta yi qu dao bie zuo cheng bao wen ling yi shuang zui

為什麼對流星許願 卻從來沒實現
wei shen me dui liu xing xu yuan que cong lai mei shi xian

為什麼英勇的騎士 會比龍還危險
wei shen me ying yong de qi shi hui bi long hai wei xian

我當然知道這世界 不會完美無暇
wo dang ran zhi dao zhe shi jie bu hui wan mei wu xia

我只求愛情能夠不要那麼樣複雜
wo zhi qiu ai qing neng gou bu yao na me yang fu za

Chorus 1x

讓我們回去從前好不好
rang wo men hui qu cong qian hao bu hao

天真愚蠢快樂美好....
tian zhen yu chen kuai le mei hao….

Chorus 1x

TV Music: 我愛他 (Wo Ai Ta) by 丁噹 (Ding Dang)

March 8, 2010 at 11:46 pm (*** Difficult, Chinese lyrics, Female Singers, Pinyin lyrics, Television soundtracks) (, )


Another TV theme song that has gotten a lot of play lately is the opener for 下一站,幸福 (Autumn’s Concerto), a popular show which only recently concluded. The video for the song is unrelated to the series, however, and stars my favorite actor from 痞子英雄 (Black & White), 修杰楷.

In terms of song difficulty, I’m rating this as difficult for two main reasons: 1) the vocabulary in it could be classified as upper intermediate, and 2) you’ll need a good vocal range to pull off this song regardless of your Chinese ability. The final chorus pushes it up to a high C#, for which most non-sopranos would have to switch to falsetto. My best advice is, if you can’t hit the high notes, change the key. This is possible via the remote control/computer at most Taiwanese KTVs and with many types of audio software. Good luck!

他的輕狂留在 某一節車廂
ta de qing kuang liu zai mou yi jie che xiang

地下鐵裡的風 比回憶還重
di xia tie li de feng bi hui yi hai chong

整座城市一直等著我
zheng zuo cheng shi yi zhi deng zhe wo

有一段感情還在漂泊
you yi duan gan qing hai zai piao bo

對他唯一遺憾 是分手那天
dui ta wei yi yi han shi fen shou na tian

我奔騰的眼淚 都停不下來
wo ben teng de yan lei dou ting bu xia lai

若那一刻重來 我不哭
ruo na yi ke chong lai wo bu ku

讓他知道我可以很好
rang ta zhi dao wo ke yi hen hao

(Chorus)

我愛他 轟轟烈烈最瘋狂
wo ai ta  hong hong lie lie zui feng kuang

我 的夢 狠狠碎過卻不會忘
wo de meng hen hen sui guo que bu hui wang

曾為他 相信明天就是未來
ceng wei ta xiang xin ming tian jiu shi wei lai

情節有多壞 都不肯醒來
qing jie you duo huai  dou by ken xing lai

我愛他 跌跌撞撞到絕望
wo ai ta die die zhuang zhuang dao jue wang

我的心 深深傷過卻不會忘
wo de xin shen shen shang guo que bu hui wang

我和他 不再屬於這個地方
wo he ta  bu zai shu yu zhe ge di fang

最初的天堂 最終的荒唐
zui chu de tian tang  zui zhong de huang tang

如果還有遺憾 又怎麼樣呢
ru guo hai you yi han  you zen me yang ne

傷了痛了懂 了 就能好了嗎
shang le tong le dong le  jiu neng hao le ma

曾經依靠彼此的肩膀
ceng jing yi kao bi ci de jian bang

如今各自在人海流浪
ru jin ge zi zai ren hai liu lang

我愛他 轟轟烈烈最瘋狂
wo ai ta  hong hong lie lie zui feng kuang

我 的夢 狠狠碎過卻不會忘
wo de meng hen hen sui guo que bu hui wang

逃 不開 愛越深越互相傷害
tao bu kai ai yue shen yue hu xiang shang hai

越深的依賴 越多的空白 該怎麼去愛
yue shen de yi lai    yue duo de kong bai    gai zen me qu ai

(Repeat chorus – higher key)

如果還有遺憾 是分手那天
ru guo hai you yi han  shi fen shou na tian

我奔騰的眼淚 都停不下來
wo ben teng de yan lei dou ting bu xia lai

若那一刻重來 我不哭
ruo na yi ke chong lai wo bu ku

讓他知道我可以很好
rang ta zhi dao wo ke yi hen hao
