lyrics

那天我心情实在不高兴啊
That day I was really in a bad mood
找了个大仙我算了一卦
I found a fortune-teller, who laid out my cards
他说我的婚姻只有三年的长呀
He said my marriage would only last three years
我那颗爱她的心有点慌
This heart of mine that loved her so was a little confused

混到了北京我混没了牵挂
I drifted off to Beijing, I drifted away my worries
混乱了生活我混长了头发
I drifted my life into a mess, I drifted my hair long
究竟是什么让我无法自拔呀
in the end, why couldn't I tear myself away
是不是我拔出来真的就软了
could it be that I had softened when I pulled it out

我做个艺术家
I play the artist
我娶个艺术家
I take an artist wife
我嫁个艺术家
I take an artist husband
我毁你个艺术家
I destroy you, artist

这时我发现我呀是否真的病了
That time I made a discovery; was i really sick?
是找了个鸡呀我就随了那个鸡了吧
should I be content with the man I found
还是找条狗哇我嫁了那条狗哇
or should I find a dog and promise my hand to that dog
这时我惊奇地发现我是否怀孕了
that time I made a surprising discovery; was I pregnant?

我做个艺术家
I play the artist
我娶个艺术家
I take an artist wife
我嫁个艺术家
I take an artist husband
我毁你个艺术家
I destroy you, artist

谁害怕贫穷
who fears poverty
谁害怕富有啊
who fears wealth
谁会天长
who outlives heaven
谁不会地久
who isn't as old as the earth
如果你恨 你就恨出个追求
if you hate, you’ll give birth to aspiration
如果你爱我 我会一丝不……
if you love me, I'll strip down to the…

about

Second Hand Rose Beijing, China

Everything seems to be second hand in China. Marx, Weibo, rock music, even the women. Searching through the rumble, an old broken shoe makes us laugh, jump with joy.
