***
忘了關 那扇門 那扇窗 電光 石火 秋涼
Forgot to shut that door, that window—a flash of lightning, a spark from clashing stones, a string of crisp fall days
孩子離開了鞦韆 最快要到七月再回來盪
The kids left the trapeze; at the earliest it will be July when they will swing on it again
影劇版依然沸沸揚揚 像極了槍聲大作的靶場
The Film & TV page is still abuzz [with rumors and gossip], closely resembling a shooting range replete with gun shots
工作了一整天只喝了 一碗冷湯
I’ve worked all day; I only downed a bowl of cold soup

嗚~只有愛讓人心情舒暢
Woo…only love makes one’s mind at ease
嗚~愛讓人興致高昂
Woo…love keeps one’s spirits high
向左 側身 半躺 等體溫下降
To the left, leaning sideways, reclining, I wait for my body to cool down
電視播吸煙對懷孕的影響 是誰在十二樓嚷嚷
The TV is preaching the impact of smoking on pregnancy. Who is arguing noisily on the twelfth floor?
日子像是道灰牆 罵它也沒有迴響 呀呀呀呀呀呀呀
Life is like a grey wall—you can scold it but it won’t respond, ya ya ya ya ya
女優與假知青的戀情終於曝光
The actress and the fake educated young man’s secret relationship finally came to light

嗚~只有愛讓人心情舒暢
Woo…only love makes one’s mind at ease
嗚~愛讓人興緻高昂
Woo…love keeps one’s spirits high
向左 側身 半躺 攏絡睡意上床
To the left, leaning sideways, reclining, I enlist drowsiness and go to bed
電視裡師奶被催眠在現場 十八台熱情奔放
In the TV program mature wives are hypnotized on the spot; Channel 18 is jaunty and bold
日子像是道灰牆 罵它沒有迴響 呀呀呀呀呀
Life is like a grey wall—you can scold it but it won’t respond, ya ya ya ya ya
好像越不想怎樣 就越是怎樣
It seems like the more I detest something, the more life gives it to me

Repeat *** once
