是的,專欄又跳票好久了...我也不想,但又奈何?

曉得Eagles這首"Desperado"也已經好久了,少年時瘋西洋音樂,但是得承認少不更事的自己,懂得歌詞卻無法體會...

這陣子又重新遇見這首歌,仔仔細細地配著歌詞認真聽了一遍,竟然忍不住哭了...而且哭得不能自己...

我尋遍了網路上的各種中文翻譯,但始終沒有找到能扣住心弦的版本。

尤其,覺得 "Desperado"這首帶有濃厚江湖味道(是的,美國西部江湖)的滄桑勸世歌謠,所有中文翻譯的意境都離我好遠好遠

我喜歡把歌名"Desperado"翻成《浪子啊~》,如果Eagles生長在這兒,我想他們應該也會同意吧!

 

是啊,自己翻,自己喜歡。自己喜歡就好,不是嗎?

人生,還能夠有多少這樣喜歡就好的奢侈呢?


 

 《浪子啊~》  老鷹合唱團

"Desperado" by Eagles

 

浪子啊~

Desperado

你為何執迷不悟

Why don't you come to your senses

你自我放逐得還不夠久嗎

You've been out riding fences, for so long now

唉,鐵齒的傢伙

Oh, you're a hard one

不過我曉得你一定有自己的苦衷

But I know that you've got your reasons

今天所逞的一時之快

These things that are pleasing you

終究會變成該還的債

Can hurt you somehow

 

千萬別抽那張鑽石皇后(拜金女)啊,兄弟

Don't you draw the queen of diamonds ,boy!

她會讓你敗得傾家蕩產

She'll beat you if she's able

你曉得紅心皇后(真心人)總讓你無後顧之憂

You know the queen of hearts is always your best bet

在我看來,好牌早就都已攤在面前

Now it seems to me some fine things have been laid upon your table

可惜你的雙眼卻總是望向天邊

But you only want the ones you can't get

 

浪子啊~

Desperado

你已青春不再

Oh, you arn't getting no younger

滄桑與風霜,正呼喚著你回來故鄉

Your pain and your hunger, they're drivin' you home

自由?唉,自由那只是別人隨口講講罷了

And freedom, oh freedom, well that's just some people talking

孤獨的人生路途才是你生命的囚籠

Your prison is walking through this world all alone

 

難道說,地凍天寒你都沒有感覺

Don't your feet get cold in the wintertime

地也老、天也荒

The sky won't snow and the sun won't shine

地暗天昏、渾渾噩噩

It's hard to tell the nighttime from the day

一切對你而言,早已都毫無所謂

And you're losing all your highs and lows

這樣麻木不仁地活著,難道不可悲?

Ain't it funny how the feeling goes away

 

浪子啊~

Desperado

你為何執迷不悟

Why don't you come to your senses

卸下你的心防、重啟你的心門吧

Come down from your fences, open the gate

也許雨仍會下個不停,但記得抬頭看看天上的彩虹

It may be raining but there's a rainbow above you

找個人來愛你吧~找個人來愛你吧

You better let somebody love you, let somebody love you

找個人來愛你吧

You better let somebody love you

千萬別留下遺憾

Before it's too late

 

(歌詞中譯:難攻博士)
