鄉村音樂:It never rains in southern California

It never rains in southern California 演唱者:Albert Hammond

1972
年,Albert Hammond發行單曲《It never rains in southern California》,
該曲一發行就進入美國音樂榜前五。
2005年作為韓劇《人魚小姐》的插曲在中國又火了一把。
不過喜歡這首歌與什麼小姐無關,聽著這聽似歡快的旋律,我想到那些在外地淘金的人們。
他們風塵僕僕,遠離他鄉,來到這曾經如何渴望來到的城市,夢想與成就,今得否?
同樣,也讓我想起另一首同樣以地名為名字的老歌"San Francisco"
Do you know what kind of people are you gonna meet there?


歌詞
Got on board a westbound seven forty-seven
搭上西行的波音747
Didn"t think before deciding what to do

不曾考慮何從何去
Ooh, that talk of opportunities, TV breaks and movies
人生充滿機遇螢屏電影上的一切就要成為現實
Rang true, sure rang true ...
成為現實
Seems it never rains in southern California
好象南加州從來不下雨
Seems I"ve often heard that kind of talk before
好象我常聽到類似的說法
It never rains in California, but girl, don"t they warn ya?
南加州從不下雨可是乖乖他們沒有警告過你
It pours, man, it pours
我看下的是傾盆大雨
I"m out of work, I"m out of my head
我沒有工作茫然失措
Out of self respect, I"m out of bread
我一貧如洗找不到自己
I"m underloved, I"m underfed, I wanna go home
沒有人愛我饑餓無比我想回家
It never rains in California, but girl, don"t they warn ya?
南加州從不下雨可是乖乖他們沒有警告過你
It pours, man, it pours
我看下的是傾盆大雨

Will you tell the folks back home I nearly made it?
你回去的時候能不能告訴家裡的人我差一點就成功了
Had offers but didn"t know which one to take
機會多多但是要抓住也不容易
Please don"t tell them how you found me
請別告訴他們你如何找到了我
Don"t tell "em how you found me
請別告訴他們你如何找到了我
Give me a break, give me a break
讓我休息一下休息一下
Seems it never rains in southern California
好象南加州從來不下雨
Seems I"ve often heard that kind of talk before
好象我常聽到類似的說法
It never rains in California, but girl, don"t they warn ya?
南加州從不下雨可是乖乖他們沒有警告過你
It pours, man, it pour
我看下的是傾盆大雨
