'请不要为我哭泣Argentina'

我第一次听这首歌就爱上它. 歌的词更让我动心. 写这首歌的人是为Evita Peron写出她的心声.

Argentina(阿根廷)是南美洲的一个小国家. 在1945年的内乱时, 一为军官上校Juan Peron赢得总统选举. 在那时候他的第二任妻子Evita Peron深得人心, 尤其是工人阶层具多.

Evita出生低矮. 她能成为第一夫人对很多人来说是不甘心让命运安排而勇于追球她的理想. 在她的丈夫当总统其间, 她为人民做了很多事情. 有钱阶级的人民是不喜欢她得. 很多人也传她是个具有野心的女人. 她为人民服务了四年. 在1950年死于癌症. 一代红颜就这样与世长辞. 直到今天她还是很受阿根廷人民的爱戴.


Don’t Cry for Me Argentina 的歌词…

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange (这很难, 你一定觉得很奇怪)
When I try to explain how I feel (当我试着解释我的感受时)
That I still need your love after all that I've done (我还是需要你的爱, 不管我做了什么)

You won't believe me (你不会相信我)
All you will see is a girl you once knew (你看到的是你曾经认识的女孩)
Although she's dressed up to the nines (虽然她穿的雍容华贵)
At sixes and sevens with you (展示在你面前)

I had to let it happen, I had to change (我要让它发生, 我要改变)
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel (不想让我一世人跟在别人的后头)
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun (只能望着窗外, 远离阳光)

So I chose freedom (所以我选择自由)
Running around, trying everything new (到处去, 常识新的事物)
But nothing impressed me at all (可是没有一样能够打动我)
I never expected it to (我从来就没有包着希望)

[Chorus:]

Don't cry for me Argentina (请不要为我哭泣Argentina)
The truth is I never left you (真的, 我从来就不曾离开你)
All through my wild days (虽然我任性)
My mad existence (为了我疯狂的存在)
I kept my promise (我遵守约定)
Don't keep your distance (所以请不要保持距离)

And as for fortune, and as for fame (是名, 是利)
I never invited them in (我从来就没有把它们请进来)
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired (虽然全世界都以为这是我想要得)

They are illusions (它们是幻绝)
They are not the solutions they promised to be (它们不能解决问题)
The answer was here all the time (答案一直都在这里)
I love you and hope you love me (我爱你, 希望你也一样爱我)

Don't cry for me Argentina(请不要为我哭泣Argentina)

[chorus]

Have I said too much? (我是不是话太多了?)
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you. (我已经没有再多的话要对你说了)
But all you have to do is look at me to know (你只要看着我就知道)
That every word is true…..(我说的每个字都是真心的!)



一首扣人心弦的歌! 这首歌在"追梦"就能听的到.......
