AMERICAN IDLE
美国空转
Měiguó Kōngzhuǎn

Simon says, Simon says,
西蒙说,西蒙说,
Xīméng shuō, Xīméng shuō,

Mr. Zimmerman, we cannot be your friend.
齐默曼先生,跟你做朋友不成。
Qímòmàn xiānshēng, gēn nǐ zuò péngyǒu bùchéng.

Simon says, Simon says,
西蒙说,西蒙说,
Xīméng shuō, Xīméng shuō,

I'm sorry Mr. Z, but you cannot sing for me.
真的抱歉齐默曼,但你别给我歌唱。
Zhēnde bàoqiàn Qímòmàn, dàn nǐ bié gěi wǒ gēchàng.

Head on back to Minnesota,
返回到你的明尼苏达,
Fǎnhuí dào nǐ de Míngnísūdá,

I must be blunt, its over.
我必坦率说, 你结束了。
Wǒ bì tǎnshuài shuō, nǐ jiéshùle.

Get out, get out, you cannot sing,
走开,走开, 你唱的难听,
Zǒu kāi, zǒu kāi, nǐ chàng de nántīng,

Head on back to Hibbing.
返回你的西冰。
Fǎnhuí nǐ de Xībīng.

Simon says, Simon says,
西蒙说,西蒙说,
Xīméng shuō, Xīméng shuō,

You're okay on the guitar,
弹个吉他你还行,
Tàn gè jítā nǐ hái xíng,

But you cannot be a star.
但你不能做明星。
Dàn nǐ bùnéng zuò míngxīng.

Simon says, Simon says,
西蒙说,西蒙说,
Xīméng shuō, Xīméng shuō,

Stay away from New York City,
滚出纽约市因为,
Gǔn chū NiǔYuē Shì yīnwèi,

Cause your voice is bloody shitty.
你的嗓音像个屁。
Nǐ de sǎngyīn xiàng gè pì.

Head on back to Minnesota,
返回到你的明尼苏达,
Fǎnhuí dào nǐ de Míngnísūdá,

I must be blunt, its over.
我必坦率说, 你结束了,
Wǒ bì tǎnshuài shuō, nǐ jiéshùle,

Get out, get out, you cannot sing,
走开,走开, 你唱的难听,
Zǒu kāi, zǒu kāi, nǐ chàng de nántīng,

Head on back to Hibbing.
返回你的西冰。
Fǎnhuí nǐ de Xībīng.

America, you must stay locked in idle,
美国,你必锁定在空转,

Gǎnjué xiǎng yào zìshā,

You must stay locked in idle.
你必锁定在空转。
Nǐ bì suǒdìng zài kōngzhuǎn.

Simon says, Simon says,
西蒙说,西蒙说,
Xīméng shuō, Xīméng shuō,

Can't you play a song we know,
给我唱有名的曲,
Gěi wǒ chàng yǒumíng de qū,

So they’ll like your vocal tone?
让你声音受赞许 ?
Ràng nǐ shēngyīn shòu zànxǔ?

Simon says, Simon says,
西蒙说,西蒙说,
Xīméng shuō, Xīméng shuō,

Too much content for the head,
脑袋里内容太满,
Nǎodai lǐ nèiróng tài mǎn,

You might bore the audience.
你使观众不耐烦。
Nǐ shǐ guānzhòng bù nàifán.

This entire entertainment industry,
这个整个的娱乐产业就必须,
Zhège zhěnggè de yúlè chǎnyè jiù bìxū,

Must undergo this brutal lobotomy.
接受这个残酷的脑叶切除术。
Jiēshòu zhège cánkù de nǎo yè qiēchú shù.

America, you must stay locked in idle,
美国,你必锁定在空转,

Feeling homicidal,
感觉想要屠杀,
Gǎnjué xiǎng yào túshā,

You must stay locked in idle.
你必锁定在空转。
Nǐ bì suǒdìng zài kōngzhuǎn.
