Xie He Xian
謝和弦
By: aChord/Xie He Xian/謝和弦
Album: My Name Is Xie He Xian




有沒有聽到這裡有一把木吉他的聲音 
you mei you ting dao, zhe li you yi ba ji ta de sheng ying
Have you heard? There's a voice of the wood guitar here

沒有華麗的重低音
mei you hua li de chong di yin
without the gorgeous repition of bass

只有想要讓你覺得旋律好聽 
zhi you xiang yao rang ni jue de xuan lu hao ting
I just want to make you think the melody sounds good

用一把木吉他寫饒舌歌曲
yong yi ba mu ji ta xie rao she ge qu
I use my wood guitar to write babbling songs

唱一唱饒舌給你聽聽 
chang yi chang rao she gei ni ting ting
I sing and babble for you to hear

彈一彈 得來不易
dan yi dan, de lai bu yi
plucking a string, that's not so easy to do

--

有人曾經罵我 說我不是嘻哈 
you ren ceng jing ma wo, shuo wo bu shi xi ha
Some people would accuse me, saying I'm not funny

對 我就是假嘻哈
dui, wo jiu shi jia xi ha
Yeah, I'm only faking it

你看我的樣子 哪一點像嘻哈掛? 
ni kan wo de yang zi, na yi dian xiang xi ha gua
Look at my manner...Isn't it a little funny?

誰說ROCK裡面不能有HIP HOP?
shei shuo ROCK li mian bu neng you HIP HOP?
Who said ROCK can't have HIP HOP in it?

我說我的ROCK裡面當然可以有我的HIP HOP
wo shuo wo de ROCK li mian, dang ran ke yi you wo de HIP HOP
I say in my ROCK, of course there can be my HIP HOP

--

我現在就唱給你聽 我只有一個人而已 
wo xian zai jiu chang gei ni ting, wo zhi you yi ge ren er yi
I sing for you to hear right now, I'm only just one person

我只是一個喜歡音樂的少年如此而已
wo zhi shi yi ge xi huan yin yue de shao nian ru ci er yi
I'm only just one music-liking youngster

我沒有天王名師幫我寫歌編曲 
wo mei you tian wang ming shi bang wo xie ge bian qu
I don't have any amazing teacher helping me weave the music together

沒有DJ幫我 刷碟 
mei you DJ bang wo shua die
No DJ to help me "brush the plate"

咕嘰 咕嘰 咕嘰 咕嘰
gu ji, gu ji, gu ji, gu ji, gu ji~

我來自 南投埔里 家裡面 都講台語 
wo lai zi, Nantou Puli, jia li mian, dou jiang tai yu
I'm from Nantou Puli. My family speaks Taiwanese

同學都講台灣國語 
tong xue dou jiang tai wan guo yu,
My classmates all speak Taiwanese

但是台北女生都愛ABC
dan shi Tai Bei nu sheng dou ai ABC
But Taipei girls all love "ABC"s (American-Born Chinese)

狗咬豬 哩去坐飛凌機
gou yao zhu, li qu zuo fei ling ji
Dogs bite pigs, go miles on a flying machine*

三隻小豬都可以是成語 
san zhe xiao zhu dou ke yi shi cheng yu,
The three little pigs ca be a proverb

三瓶一百 我想也可以
san ping yi bai, wo xiang ye ke yi
Three hundred bottles, I think, also can

-

是不是這樣的東西 
shi bu shi zhe yang de dong xi,
Isn't it this kind of thing?

是不是這樣的道理
shi bu shi zhe yang de dao li
Isn't it this kind of principle?

是不是這樣的夜晚
shi bu shi zhe yang de ye wan
Isn't it this kind of night

你才會這樣的想給我
ni cai hui zhe yang de xiang gei wo
when you'll think of me like this

是不是啊老師在講 我都有在聽
shi bu shi ah lao shi zai jiang, wo dou you zai ting
Isn't it teacher's lectures that I've all listened to

我的名子叫做 謝和弦 
wo de ming zi jiao zuo Xie He Xian
My Name is Xie Hexian

英文名子叫做R C H O R D
Ying Wen ming zi jiao zuo R CHORD
My English name is R Chord

哩後 我ㄟ台語講了最好
li hou, wo eh tai yu jiang li zui hao
In the end, my Taiwanese is still best

我小時候都喝克林 
wo xiao shi huo dou he ke lin,
When I was small, I drank Clindamycin

所以長得跟那大樹一樣高
suo yi zhang de gen na da shu yi yang gao
So I grew up taller than a tree

飛高高 飛高高 高飛也很高
fei gao gao, fei gao gao, gao fei ye hen gao
Fly high high, fly high high, High-flying so high

-

我的夢想和理想 我的幻想和妄想
wo de meng xiang he li xiang, wo de huan xiang he wang xiang
My dream and ideal, my vision and fantasy

我都努力實現它 沒有人可以來阻擋
wo dou nu li shi xian ta, mei you ren ke yi lai zu dang
I diligently work to realize it--no one can stop me

我不會自大 我會努力打拼
wo bu hui zi da, wo hui nu li da pin
I won't be arrogant, I'll strive to be together

讓阿公和阿嬤 都驕傲有我這個孫子
rang Ah Gong he Ah Ma dou jiao ao you wo zhe ge sun zi
Make Grandpa and Grandma both proud to have me as their grandson

雖然台北這個現實的社會 不是這麼的好玩 
sui ran Tai Bei zhe ge xian shi de she hui bu shi zhe me de hao wan
Even though Taipei's realistic society isn't all that fun

但是我會繼續闖 繼續向前走
dan shi wo hui ji xu chuang, ji xu xiang qian zou*
I'll continue charging on, continue moving ahead
