Jason Mraz -Life Is Wonderful

上次閱讀課最後一堂課本來要表演的

要介紹Jason Mraz  

(他的樣子和他的歌=>  http://tw.youtube.com/watch?v=Ok6asMZnQjw&feature=related)

為了這表演  還在前一天不知死活的準備到早上

不過因為時間不夠  就沒有介紹Jason了...



這是四首要介紹的歌

1. Curbside Prophet

2. I'm Yours

3. Life is Wonderful

4. Winter 





這幾首我都很喜歡



而第三首是一首讓人聽了會難過的歌

借用一個英文教學網站的介紹  做了點修改(不喜歡中文翻譯)

Life Wonderful  -- Jason Mraz



It takes a crane(
吊車) to build a crane               

It takes two floors to make a story             

It takes an egg to make a hen(
母雞)          

 



It takes a hen to make an egg            

 



There is no end to what I'm saying            

 



乍聽之下,歌詞像是無所事事、無病呻吟的青春囈語,可是接下來的一段歌詞,確可看出Jason Mraz敏銳觀察力,其中的邏輯和矛盾頗見人生真象:

 




 



It takes a thought to make a word      

And it takes some words to make an action

It takes some work to make it work

It takes some good to make it hurt

It takes some bad for satisfaction 


除了開始的兩段歌詞,Jason Moraz還寫了另外三段文藝青年似地人生觀感,文字也頗奈人尋味,限於篇幅,讀者可參考附錄的筆者譯詞,表過不提。不過,看多了人生的美好和傷痛,再想到人生的時常和無常,當真是如人飲水,冷暖自知,也許只能像他一樣,啦啦啦地過了!

 



La la la la la la la life is wonderful

啊啦啦啦啦啦啦,人生真美妙...

Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle

啊啦啦啦啦啦啦,人生兜圈圈
...

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful

啊啦啦啦啦啦啦,人生真美妙
...

Al la la la la

啊啦啦啦啦...

 




 



It takes a night to make it dawn(黎明)

And it takes a day to make you yawn(
打呵欠) brother

And it takes some old to make you young

It takes some cold to know the sun

It takes the one to have the other



And it takes no time to fall in love

But it takes you years to know what love is

It takes some fears to make you trust

It takes those tears to make it rust(
遲鈍)

It takes the dust(
灰塵) to have it polished(洗淨)



Ha la la la la la la life is wonderful

Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle

Ah la la la la la la life is so full of

Ah la la la la la la life is so rough

Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful

Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle

Ah la la la la la la life is our love

Ah la la la la la



It takes some silence to make sound

It takes a loss before you found it

And it takes a road to go nowhere

It takes a toll to make you care

It takes a hole to make a mountain



Ah la la la la la la life is wonderful

Ah la la la la la la life goes full circle

Ha la la la la la life is wonderful

Ha la la la la la life is meaningful

Ha la la la la la life is wonderful

Ha la la la la la life it is...so... wonderful

It is so meaningful

It is so wonderful

It is meaningful

It is wonderful

It is meaningful

It goes full circle

Wonderful

Meaningful

Full circle

Wonderful
