Chinese Pop Songs

我愛台妹-MC HotDog & 張震嶽 I Love Local Girls-MC HotDog & Chang Chen-yue

Note: 台妹 [tái mèi] literally reads “Taiwanese girls,” but the term actually refers to the local Han Chinese girls in Taiwan rather than those who moved to Taiwan from mainland China after 1945 and their descendants. The stereotype of local Taiwanese girls, together with the male equivalent, 台客 [tái kè], is that they are loud, vulgar, provincial, and poorly educated.

我的阿妹妹 快來和我跳阿哥哥 Go 我知道你看到是我 妳不會說No
My sister, come on and dance Brother [a kind of night club dance] with me. Go. I know when you see it’s me, you wouldn’t say no
我不是油頭葉教授 我的homiez都叫我熱狗 4 sure
I am not that Professor Yeh with slicked back hair. My homies all call me Hotdog for sure
女孩 就是喜歡妳台台 等等去家裡home pa要不要來
Girl, I just adore your localness. I will have a house party later. Do you wanna come?
只怕你掛的太快 明天要去廟裡收驚拜拜 How High ?! We can kiss the sky!
I only worry that you will pass out too fast and we’ll have to worship a deity at a temple tomorrow to help you get over the shock. How crazy can we be? We can kiss the sky!
人生海海 我們不會只是stand one night 「one night in 墾丁..我留下許多情..」
Life is unpredictable. We won’t just have a one-night-stand. “One night in Kenting…I left too much love…”
你是我的可口可樂 幫我解渴 看我穿著就知道我玩饒舌
You are my Coca-Cola, quenching my thirst. Just look at my attire you will know I am a rapper
不要說我壞話 因為我有順風耳 如果是你肚子大我帶你去看順風婦產科
Don’t speak ill of me, because I am well-informed. If you are knocked up, I will take you to the Soonpoong Clinic

Note: Soonpoong Clinic is a famous South Korean sitcom running from 1998 to 2000. The clinic’s Chinese translation is the same as the first two characters in 順風耳 [shùn fēng ěr], clairaudient ears, a term that describes people with preternaturally good hearing.

I love Taiwanese local girls. Taiwanese local girls love me. To me, Ling Zhi Ling means nothing
我愛台妹 台妹愛我 對我來說 侯佩涔算什麼

Note: The singers are insinuating that graceful, fashionable, educated female stars like Lin Chi-ling and Patty Hou are not as good as the outspoken local girls.
