Jay Chou - Tīng māmā de huà (聽媽媽的話) (English translation)

English translation

Listen to mom's words

Little children, do you have a lot of questions?
Why, when others were reading manga
I was learning to draw and play the piano?
While the others were playing games, I was leaning on the wall, learning my ABCs?
I said that I wanted a huge airplane,
But I got an old, used recorder1 instead
Why should you listen to your mother's words?
When you are grown up, you will begin to understand
 
When I grew up, I started to realize
Why I ran faster and flew higher than others
In the future, the manga that everyone reads will all be drawn by me,
And the songs they all sing will all be written by me
You can't see your mother's work
There are warm recipes in her heart,
When you have time, hold her hand
And holding hands. dream together.
 
Listen to your mother's words, don't let her get hurt
You want to grow up fast, so you will be able to take care of her
Beautiful white hair grows in happiness
The magic of an angel, warmth in kindness
 
In your future, music will be your secret weapon
Use it to find love, oh, I don't want to teach you poorly
So listen to your mom's words for now, be in love later
I know your future path, but your mother can see it more clearly than I
You will start to imitate your classmates and write things on your backpack
But I suggest you write: "Mom, I will study hard"
Study hard, why do I say this?
I don't want you to lose, so I must tell you to study hard
The sweater your mother gave you, you must keep it well
Because on Mother's Day, I want to tell her that I still have it
Yes, I'm going to run into Zhou Runfa 2
So you can dazzle your classmates, the God of Gambling 3 will be your father
 
I can't find the love letter I wrote in my childhood, don't give it away after you've written it
Because two days later you will find it on the playground
You will start to like pop music
Because Jacky Cheung is about to sing "Kiss Goodbye" 4
 
Listen to your mother's words, don't let her get hurt
You want to grow up fast, so you will be able to take care of her
Beautiful white hair grows in happiness
The magic of an angel, warmth in kindness
Listen to your mother's words, don't let her get hurt
You want to grow up fast, so you will be able to take care of her
 
When I grew up, I started to realize
Why I ran faster and flew higher than others
In the future, the manga that everyone reads will all be drawn by me,
And the songs they all sing will all be written by me
You can't see your mother's work
There are warm recipes in her heart,
When you have time, hold her hand
And holding hands. dream together.
 
Listen to your mother's words, don't let her get hurt
You want to grow up fast, so you will be able to take care of her
Beautiful white hair grows in happiness
The magic of an angel, warmth in kindness
