上海滩

作曲:顧嘉輝
作詞:黃霑

浪奔 浪流 萬里滔滔江水永不休
淘盡了 世間事 混作滔滔一片潮流

是喜 是愁 浪裡分不清歡笑悲憂
成功 失敗 浪裡看不出有未有

愛你恨你 問君知否 似大江一發不收
轉千灣 轉千灘 亦未平復此中爭鬥

又有喜 又有愁 就算分不清歡笑悲憂
仍願翻 百千浪 在我心中起伏夠
《上海滩》 The Bund (of Shanghai)
translation by Xah Lee

the wave roars, the wave howls,
thousand miles of ebb and flow.
in the end, the world's affairs,
mucky and troubled it pours.

happiness, sadness,
joy and sorrow the river can't tell.
success, failure,
awash in the rise and fall.

loving you, hating you, have you felt it?
as the rampage of the billows,
a thuosand turns, passing thuosand bunds,
cannot quell this battering rage.

here's joy, there's sorrow,
laughter and tears amiss.
i would still, tumble a thousand miles,
keep them up in my heart.
