Madonna / What It Feels Like For A Girl

What It Feels Like For A Girl / Madonna

(Spoken:)
Girls can wear jeans
And cut their hair short
Wear shirts and boots
‘Cause it’s OK to be a boy
But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading
‘Cause you think that being a girl is degrading
But secretly you’d love to know what it′s like
Wouldn’t you
What it feels like for a girl

Silky smooth
Lips as sweet as candy, baby
Tight blue jeans
Skin that shows in patches

Strong inside but you don’t know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak

Chorus:

Do you know what it feels like for a girl
Do you know what it feels like in this world
For a girl

Hair that twirls on finger tips so gently, baby
Hands that rest on jutting hips repenting

Hurt that’s not supposed to show
And tears that fall when no one knows
When you′re trying hard to be your best
Could you be a little less

(chorus)
(chorus, prefixing 3rd line with “What it feels like”)

Strong inside but you don′t know it
Good little girls they never show it
When you open up your mouth to speak
Could you be a little weak

(chorus, repeat)

In this world
Do you know
Do you know
Do you know what it feels like for a girl
What it feels like in this world

Mr.Children / Sign

我好喜歡這首歌~
尤其是這一段
“即使只有一丁點 那光亮也能照亮心田
一定得要好好守護啊 我們如此發誓著
相逢邂逅的一切 傳達給我們的Sign
每一個都別錯過啊 以後就試著這樣一起生活下去吧”

Mr.Children – Sign

届いてくれるといいな
君の分かんないところで 僕も今奏でてるよ
育たないで萎れてた新芽みたいな音符(おもい)を
二つ重ねて鳴らすハーモニー

「ありがとう」と「ごめんね」を繰り返して僕ら
人恋しさを積み木みたいに?#092;せてゆく

ありふれた時間が愛しく思えたら
それは“愛の仕業”と 小さく笑った
君が見せる仕草 僕に向けられてるサイン
もう 何ひとつ見落とさない
そんなことを考えている

たまに無頓着な言葉で汚し合って
互いの未熟さに嫌気がさす
でもいつかは裸になり甘い体温に触れて
優しさを見せつけ合う

似てるけどどこか違う だけど同じ匂い
身体でも心でもなく愛している

僅かだって明かりが心に灯るなら
大切にしなきゃ と僕らは誓った
めぐり逢った すべてのものから送られるサイン
もう 何ひとつ見逃さない
そうやって暮らしてゆこう

緑道の木漏れ日が君に当たって揺れる
時間の美しさと残酷さを知る

残された時間が僕らにはあるから
大切にしなきゃと 小さく笑った
君が見せる仕草 僕を強くさせるサイン
もう 何ひとつ見落とさない
そうやって暮らしてゆこう
そんなことを考えている

Lauryn Hill – Doo Wop (that thing)

老嘻哈團體the fugee的主唱、同時也出現在電影《修女也瘋狂2》的 Lauryn Hill,
極具了音樂的天賦及外貌於一身,是我最喜歡的女歌手之一。

音樂主題圍繞在美國中下流階層黑人的世界,以學校點名為開頭,非常的有影響力,
背景的吉他聲宣告著這張完美R&B專輯的開始。
在某些歌曲的結尾,以巧妙地加入了老師和學生們之間的對話,
雖然對話都關於學生的愛情觀,但是我想除了一點點拍聽眾馬屁的意味外,
它表達了社會邊緣的這個族群(從來沒有人認真傾聽的學生,黑人學生),
在生活中佔了極小部分的這份和諧。

值得一聽再聽的好專輯 五顆星!!!

《Doo Wop (That Thing)》

Chorus one:
Girls you know you betta watch out
Some guys, some guys are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing
That thing, that thing, that thing

(admit two shots in the atmosphere)

It`s been three weeks since you were looking for your friend
The one you let hit it and never called you again
Member when he told you he was `bout the benjamins
You act like you ain`t here him then gave him a little trim
To begin how you think you really gon` pretend
Like you wasn`t down and you called him again
Plus when you give it up so easy you ain`t even foolin` him
If you did then you`d probably fuck him again
Talkin` out cha neck saying your a Christian
A Muslim sleepin` wit da gin
Now that was the sin that did Jezebell in
Who you gon` tell when the reprecussion spin
Showin` off your ass cause your thinkin` it`s a trend
Girlfriend, let me break it down for you again
You know I only say it cause i`m truely genuine
Don`t be a hard rock when you really are a gem
Baby girl the respect is just the minimum
Niggas fucked up and you still defendin` him
Now Lauryn is only human
Don`t think I haven`t been through the same predicament
Let it sit inside your head like a million women, in Philly, Penn.
It`s silly when girls sell their souls cause it`s in
Look at where you be in, hair weaves like Europeans
Fake nails done by Koreans, come again

(Yeah, Yeah) come again
(Yeah, Yeah) come again
My friend come again

Chorus two:
Guys you know you betta watch out
Some girls, some girls are only about
That thing, that thing, that thing
That thing, that thing, that thing

The second verse it dedicated to the men
More concerned concerned wit his rims & his Timbs than his women
Him and his men come in the club like hooligans
Don`t care who they offend, popping yang (like you got yen) ………
Let`s not pretend, the women pack the pistol by they waist men
Pissed out by they case men, still in they mother`s basement
The pretty face men claiming that they did a bid men
Need to take care of their three and four kids men
But they facing court case when the child support place
Money takin` and heart breakin,
Now you wonderin` why women hate men
The sneaky silent men, the punk domestic violence men
The quick to shoot the semen stop acting like boys and be men
How you gon` win when you ain`t right within
How you gon` win when you ain`t right within
How you gon` win when you ain`t right within
Uh Uh Come Again!

Madonna / Don’t Tell Me

Don’t Tell Me
Written:Madonna/Mirwais Ahmadzai/Joe Henry

Don’t tell me to stop
Tell the rain not to drop
Tell the wind not to blow
‘Cause you said so, mmm

Tell the sun not to shine
Not to get up this time, no, no
Let it fall by the way
But don’t leave me where I lay down

Chorus:

Tell me love isn’t true
It’s just something that we do
Tell me everything I’m not
(first time:) But please don’t tell me to stop
(all other times:) But don’t ever tell me to stop

Tell the leaves not to turn
But don’t ever tell me I’ll learn, no, no
Take the black off a crow
But don’t tell me I have to go

Tell the bed not to lay
Like the open mouth of a grave, yeah
Not to stare up at me
Like a calf down on its knees

(chorus)
(chorus, prefixing 1st and 3rd lines with “Don’t you ever”)

[Don’t you ever]
Please don’t
Please don’t
Please don’t tell me to stop

[Don’t you ever]
Don’t you ever
Don’t ever tell me to stop

[Tell the rain not to drop]
Tell the bed not to lay
Like a open mouth of a grave, yeah
Not to stare up at me
Like a calf down on its knees
