聽媽媽的話 歌詞 Listen to Mother's Words Lyrics


Here are the lyrics in Chinese. I promise to translate it to English when I have the time.

聽媽媽的話

詞:周杰倫 曲:周杰倫


小朋友你是否有很多問號

為什麼 別人在那看漫畫 我卻在學畫畫 對著鋼琴說話

別人在玩遊戲 我卻靠在牆壁背我的ABC


我說我要一個大大的飛機 但卻得到一台舊舊錄音機

為什麼要聽媽媽的話 長大後你就會開始懂了這段話


長大後我開始明白

為什麼我跑得比別人快 飛得比別人高

將來大家看的都是我畫的漫畫 大家唱的都是我寫的歌

媽媽的辛苦不讓你看見 溫暖的食譜在她心裡面

有空就多多握握她的手 把手牽著一起夢遊


聽媽媽的話 別讓她受傷 想快快長大 才能保護她

美麗的白髮 幸福中發芽 天使的魔法 溫暖中慈祥


在你的未來 音樂是你的王牌 拿王牌談個戀愛

唉!我不想把你教壞 還是聽媽媽的話吧 晚點再戀愛吧

我知道你未來的路 但媽比我更清楚


你會開始學其他同學在書包寫東寫西

但我建議最好寫媽媽我會用功讀書

用功讀書 怎麼會從我嘴巴說出

不想你輸 所以要叫你用功讀書

媽媽織給你的毛衣 你要好好的收著

因為母親節到時 我要告訴她我還留著

對了 我會遇到周潤發

所以你可以跟同學炫耀賭神未來是你爸爸


我找不到童年寫的情書 你寫完不要送人

因為過兩天你會在操場上撿到

你會開始喜歡上流行歌 因為張學友開始準備唱吻別


聽媽媽的話 別讓她受傷 想快快長大 才能保護她

美麗的白髮 幸福中發芽 天使的魔法 溫暖中慈祥


聽媽媽的話 別讓她受傷 想快快長大 才能保護她

聽媽媽的話 Listen to Mother's Words

Jay Chou composed, wrote and performed this touching song about motherly love.


The MV might seem rather cheesy at times, but it gets corny in a cute way. :)

Jay composed this song and even filled in the lyrics instead of having his usual partner Vincent Fong doing it.

The words are simple and straightforward but yet truly resonates his love for his mom. Jay's parents divorced when he was 14 and he grew up with her as his only kin.

Meanwhile, do take a moment to just sit back and enjoy this wonderful tune.

P.S. Those pictures at the end of the MV, it's baby Jay and his mom. ^_^

Vending Machines

But, is this really necessary?



Found this machine at Watsons, Takashimaya. It dispenses Dove Shampoo and related products. Personally, I think I'd rather have a feel of the product, check it's expiration date and read it's fine print before I fork out money for it. I don't see many unique vending machines around in Singapore, the most common, I reckon, sells drinks.



Two vending machines at my workplace. Sorry for the bad quality, not supposed to be taking pictures... :P Anyway, one dispenses the regular canned drinks and one sells Wang Wang (旺旺) rice crackers, Calbee potato chips, Oreo, Camel Peanuts, etc... Quite popular as you can see, mostly sold out. Workaholics aplenty.

Trivia, do you know that in Japan, there's an average of 1 vending machine per 23 Japanese?

They are called jidohanbaiki (自動販売機). And what do they sell?

Beer, sake and other liquor

Cup Noodle, ready cooked.

Rice, different types.

Cigarette?

I can't see those beer & smoke machine working here. Unless there's this compulsory biometric chip embedded into every person here in Singapore.

Else how the hell are you gonna identify minors and stop them from puffing Marlboros and chugging Tigers?
