求婚Proposal

歌曲:求婚(Song Title: Proposal)
歌手:赵咏华 (Singer: Zhao Yong Hua)
作曲:姚若龙 (Composed By: Yao Ruo Long)
作词:李正帆 (Lyrics By: Li Zhen Fan)

你说你有一只可爱的小狗总是埋怨你不懂得照顾它
you say you've a cute little dog, which always complain of you not knowing how to take care of it

又说你有一间美丽的厨房只可惜没有飘过饭菜香
& say, you have a beautiful kitchen, which never smell of fragrance of home cooked dishes

我不哭不笑不点头也不摇头
I do not cry, laugh, nod my head nor shake my head

看着你的汗像下雨一样的流
seeing you perspire like rain

要等你说够一百个求婚的理由
waiting you to state a hundred reasons for proposal

量一量我在你的心中到底有多重
to measure the weightage of me in your heart

你说你一有钱就花得光光实在需要人替你管管帐
You say you will simply spend every cent on hand, and you really need some one to take care of
your fianance

又说你朋友总会欺负你傻得靠聪明的伴帮你别上当
& say, your friends will always bully you because of your foolishness, and you really need an intelligent partner to help you avoid falling into the trap

我不哭不笑不点头也不摇头
I do not cry, laugh, nod my head nor shake my head

假装你的话还不够让我感动
pretending that what you've said is yet to move me

我非要听够一百个求婚的理由
I insisted on a hundred reasons for the proposal

谁叫你你让我等这天等了那么久
who ask you to make me wait so long for this day to come

你说你厚厚胸膛冬暖夏凉靠着你保证睡得特别香
You say, lying on your broad shoulder, will definitely feel the warmth and get sound in sleep

又说你虽然平常记性不好老婆交代的话可就不会忘
& say, despite your poor memory, you shall never forget anything instruction from your wife


这是赵永华的另一经典之作,歌词带有点俏皮并显示出男女之间的大不同。男人多半较理性,而女人多半较感性。因此男人求婚理由多数以实际的观点出击,而女人其实希望求婚理由/方式较为浪漫。这一点,我十分赞同!听过好些朋友很无奈的表示另一半以买屋子为由,而提议结婚。其实女生都不大喜欢这样的求婚方式,虽然心里清楚,要建立一个家庭就必须从房子着手,但是,女生其实都希望对方能够以特别的方式求婚。既可以留下一个甜蜜的回忆待年迈时回味无穷,又可以满足自己的虚荣心(当友人听到另一半求婚的叙述而不禁羡煞不已)。

一直以来都很抗拒男生以买屋为前提而求婚;求婚究竟是因为你想买屋,还是因为你爱我,想与我携手到老?虽然心底明了,但仍会难免很不切实际的期盼有个浪漫的求婚理由/方式。这,就是女人!女人=感性的动物。求婚与结婚一样,对女生来说,意义深长,难得放纵自己不切实际;即使再理性的女人也会有同感,你认为呢?

This is another classic song of Zhao Yong Hua, the lyrics is a bit cheeky and brings out the difference of men vs. women. Most times, man's mind will overrule their head; of which, woman, usually is the oppposite. That's why most time, man love to propose on a very practical ground while woman long for a romantic proposal. This, I strongly agree! Some friends have shared how their other half proposed on the ground to buy a flat for building a home of their own, while they wished for a more romantic proposal, despite knowing the fact that building a home means it's time to look for roof above them. Why some gals long for a romantic proposal, is not only it's a precious memory of their love journey but also help the gals fulfil their vanity (getting friends envy over the proposal story).

I've always resisted the idea that a guy propose on the basis of having the need to get a flat, preparing for their marriage. The actual reason of proposal is because you need to get a flat, or, because you love me & hope to grow old together? Even if deep down in my heart, I know the reason; I would still very impractically yearn for my future partner to proposal romantically... Yup, this is WOMAN! Woman = sensational animal. To woman, the proposal is equally important as the wedding, and this is one rare occasion for them to act wilful and become most "impractical". Even for the most practical woman, they most probably yearn the same, don't you think so?
