Although I Conquer All The Earth

Athough I conquer all the earth,
Yet for me there is only one city.
In that city there is for me only one house;
And in that house, one room only;
And in that room, a bed.
And one woman sleeps there,
The shining joy and jewel of all my kingdom.

即使我是世界之主

tr. by ruotong for fun only:)
Athough I conquer all the earth,
即使我是世界之主,
Yet for me there is only one city.
对我而言,也只是一座城市
In that city there is for me only one house;
城市中也只有一所房子
And in that house, one room only;
房子里也只是有一个房间
And in that room, a bed.
房间里有一张床
And one woman sleeps there,
有一个女人睡在哪儿
The shining joy and jewel of all my kingdom.
她才是我整个王国里璀璨的珠宝
永恒的快乐!

Anonymous, Ancient India
古印度无名氏

One day when we were young

One day when we were young,
One wonderful morning in May,
You told me you loved me,
When we were young one day.

Sweet songs of spring were sung,
And music was never so gay,
You told me you loved me,
When we were young one day.

You told me you loved me,
And held me close to you heart,
We laughed then, We cried then,
Then came the time to part.

When songs of spring are sung,
Remember that morning in May,
Remember, you loved me,
When we were young one day.

...but not for me!

"But Not for Me"

Words by Ira Gershwin, Music by George Gershwin, 1930

Performed by Judy Garland in the film Girl Crazy, 1943

Old Man Sunshine - Listen, you!
Never tell me Dreams Come True!
Just try it -
And I'll start a riot.
Beatrice Fairfax - don't you dare
Ever tell me he will care;
I'm certain
It's the Final Curtain.
I never want to hear
From any cheer-
Ful Polyannas,
Who tell you Fate
Supplies a Mate -
It's all bananas!

They're writing songs of love,
But not for me;
A lucky star's above,
But not for me.

With Love to Lead the Way,
I've found more skies of Gray
Than any Russian play
Could Guarantee.

I was a fool to fall
And Get That Way;
Heigh ho! Alas! And al-
So Lackaday!

Although I can't dismiss
The mem'ry of his kiss -
I guess he's not for me.



    * Words by Ira Gershwin, music by George Gershwin, 1930
    * Introduced by Ginger Rogers and Willie Howard in the stage musical, "Girl Crazy," 1930
when you speak of this -- and you will -- be kind

yes, old use of you in Old English

或者升的更高,或者彻底堕落;
或者成就自己,或者毁掉自己。
