Funky Hokkien Song

I was reading chow ah beng - Galvin Tan Kar Leng's blog and his new post is "Learn to speak Hokkien". It was funny and make me laugh... hehe.. It is truth that we learn some language start on bad words.

After that I just surfing around the YouTube on those funny videos and I found this :-





Actually this is a classic song in China long long time ago that describes beyond the frontier livestock husbandry scene.



This is the original version.

The lyrics:-


<趕羚羊>
詞:S.H.K. 曲 (含編曲):G.T.S.
趕羚羊
草枝擺
羚羊最愛眾人趕
眾人趕呀
趕羚羊
羚羊眾人笑開懷
騎羚羊呀
賽羚羊
其樂更勝賽馬趣
老枝擺呀
嫩枝擺
草枝擺開鳥飛來
趕羚羊呀草枝擺

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = =白話文= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =
牧羊人優閒的趕著羚羊~牧草也優閒的隨風擺盪著~

賽羚羊是牧羊人唯一的樂趣~因此常常玩到很晚了才肯罷休

在都蘭這個地方的山坡地中~在深山裡面有一株千年的老木~
滿山都是金桔隨風擺動

人生最快樂的四件大事的詩中說道:久旱逢甘霖~
他鄉遇故知~洞房花燭夜~金榜題名時

就刻在這個深山中的一座老碑上~

當人生遇到四件大事~就好比乘著舟~渡過山嵐一樣爽
外傳..作者叫"韓蘭嬌" = ="


And now I use the Translator from Dictionary.com...
