Great English Song – Forever young

Forever Young是1984年Alphaville的热门单曲,也是电影《大人物拿破仑》的插曲。歌曲唱出年轻人的心声:年轻就是资本,年轻代表活力,因为年轻,所以我们可以挑战、放肆、蔑视传统;因为年轻,宁愿轰轰烈烈的死去,也不愿平淡的老死。今天跟大家一起欣赏的是童声版本,让最有资格说年轻的孩子来唱这首歌,是不是更有力量呢?

中英文歌词

Let’s dance in style, let’s dance for a while

Heaven can wait, we’re only watching the skies

Hoping for the best but expecting the worst

Are you gonna drop the bomb or not?

让我们跳起最流行的舞步,让我们跳一会儿

天堂可以等待,我们只须仰望蓝天

心怀最大的期望,却做最糟的打算

你到底会不会扔下炸弹?

Let us die young or let us live forever

We don’t have the power but we never say never

Sitting in a sandpit, life is a short trip

The music’s for the sad men

让我们英年早逝,或让我们永生于世

我们无力违背天意,但我们从不自我放弃

坐在沙坑里,生命如短暂的旅程

音乐为悲伤的人而弹奏

Can you imagine when this race is won

Turn our golden faces into the sun

Praising our leaders, we’re getting in tune

The music’s played by the mad men

你能想象吗?当我们赢得这场比赛

欢乐脸庞化作太阳

我们赞美着队长,声调一致

音乐由疯狂的人们演奏

Forever young, I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever? Forever young

永远年轻,我想永远年轻

你真的想韶华永驻吗?

永远年轻,我想永远年轻

你真的想韶华永驻吗?永远年轻

Some are like water, some are like the heat

Some are a melody and some are the beat

Sooner or later, they all will be gone

Why don’t they stay young?

有人柔情似水,有人炽热如火

有人像旋律般美妙,有人如节拍般有力

总有一天,他们都会离去

为什么青春不能永驻?

It’s so hard to get old without a cause

I don’t want to perish like a fading horse

Youth’s like diamonds in the sun

And diamonds are forever

终其一生而无所作为是多么可怕

我不想如衰老的马儿一样颓废

青春就如阳光下的钻石

而钻石可以永恒

So many adventures couldn’t happen today

So many songs we forgot to play

So many dreams swinging out of the blue

We let them come true

还有好多奇遇我不曾经历

还有好多歌曲我忘了弹唱

还有好多梦想在远方召唤

我们要让一切成真

Forever young, I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?

Forever young, I want to be forever young

Do you really want to live forever, forever and ever?

永远年轻,我想永远年轻

你真的想韶华永驻吗?

永远年轻,我想永远年轻

你真的想韶华永驻吗?

永远,永远……
