Jay Chou - Ba, Wo Hui Lai Le (爸,我回來了) (English translation)

English translation

Dad, I'm Back

I often hear talk that the war will bring about peace
Why do I see my dad constantly hitting my mom?
Just because he gets drunk, he takes it out on my mom
I really can’t bear to watch it, thinking I’m not man enough
 
Since I was young I only had Mom’s affection
Why is my dad so violent?
If I really had a pair of wings, two pairs of wings
And could leave anytime, leave secretly
I’d definitely take my mom away
 
My education from when I was little, other people’s families
Other people’s dads, there has to be a reason for all of the violence
But... neither Mom nor I were wrong. I’m ashamed to have called you “Dad.”
 
Dad, I’m back
 
“Don’t hit my mom like that again.”
Will you listen to what I say?
“Don’t hit my mom like that again.”
Can it be your hands don’t hurt?
 
I returned home so I could prevent everything
Let our family go back to the sweetness of the past, the sweet fragrance of happiness
Even though this is a truth that I’ve made up
A bit ironic, a bit sour
But it does happen in this happy society, people can relate
 
Using the obvious signs to stop all violence
Tears followed the musical notes absorbing the bloody emotions
Since I was young you told me to learn from you, put you as my model
So many delusions
Mom often tells me
“Be good, listen to your dad.” You tell me, how can I be like you?
 
Go away
 
“Don’t hit my mom like that again.”
Will you listen to what I say?
“Don’t hit my mom like that again.”
Can it be your hands don’t hurt?
 
“Don’t hit my mom like that again.”
Can it be your hands don’t hurt?

one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight
I call you dad, you hit my mom
Is this right? Why do you have to be like this?
Why let alcohol lead you to act blindly?
 
I tell you, but you still don’t listen. Listen
We’re the ones in pain. Pain
 
Don’t hit my mom like that again.

Part of the song is sung in the Taiwanese dialect, which is what the * denote on the Chinese lyrics side.
