Mandarin song translation please-Ai de Chu Ti Yan

Would someone who speaks Mandarin mind translating to English the lyrics of this song please? Ai de Chu Ti Yan
ww.youtube.com/watch?v=wjlrJl1OlfY

A friend explained a few lines and it was damn hilarious. Never found the full translation though. Maybe should have put this under the entertainment forum but it is a rather random request.

ru guo shuo ni yao li kai wo
qing cheng shi dian lai gao su wo
bu yao tou tou mo mo de zou
xiang shang ci yi yang deng ban nian
ru guo shuo ni zhen de yao zou
ba wo de xiang pian huan gei wo
zai ni shen shang ye mei you yong
wo ke yi huan gei wo ma ma
shen me tian chang di jiu
zhi shi sui bian shuo shuo
ni ai wo na yi dian
ni ye shuo bu chu kou
ni ren shi le shuai ge
jiu ba wo diu yi pang
tian qi re de xia tian
xin xiang han leng dong ye
xiang yao mai jiu lai jiao you chou
que lan lan bu xiang chu qu zou
xiang yao lai yi bao chang shou yan
fa xian wo wei man shi ba sui
(repeated lines)
shi bu shi wo de shi ba sui
zhu ding yao wei ai qing liu lei

Re: Mandarin song translation please-Ai de Chu Ti Yan

Eh, I'll give it a shot. Translations under each line. Bear with me; this is not going to be lyrical at all... stuff in parenthesis is implied.

Give me back my pictures.

It's not like you need them anyways.

(At least) I could return them to my mother.

Is there anything that lasts forever?

zhi shi sui bian shuo shuo
It's (eternal love) something that can't be taken seriously

ni ai wo na yi dian
What you supposedly love about me,

You can't even tell me.

(Right after) You met this hot guy,

jiu ba wo diu yi pang
You immediately threw me aside.

I feel like getting wasted,

que lan lan bu xiang chu qu zou
But I don't feel like going out.

[repeat previous]

shi bu shi wo de shi ba sui
When I turn 18,
*Not precisely sure how best to word this line. Sorry.

zhu ding yao wei ai qing liu lei
Am I fated to remain heartbroken?

[repeat previous]
Kinda loses a bit without the music video, doesn't it?

...and no, I had no clue that there was a wiki for cigarettes until today.

Re: Mandarin song translation please-Ai de Chu Ti Yan

Sweeeeeet... Thank you for the replies.

Yes the vid is great - the Godzilla/Barbie cracks me up each time.
Actually I'd been incorrectly told that the guy was too young to buy booze, hence the shots of him drowning his sorrows with cola, hahah oh well

I'll try the Google translate page on another one of his songs later.

Re: Mandarin song translation please-Ai de Chu Ti Yan

It's been a while since I've tried to translate a song; figured this was as good a time as any. Never heard of this particular song before; he's ok I guess...

Mandarin song translation please Ai de Chu Ti Yan

I am sorry, I am not familiar with the Mandarin version of that song.

The Cantonese version should be on any of her Best of CDs.

Re: Mandarin song translation please-Ai de Chu Ti Yan

reminds me that I saw A-Yue play in DC a couple years ago... Didn't know anything about him, at the time. Since then, I've become a fan.
