A Rather Large Cello

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Vincent Fang (方文山) (方文山)


With Lara (梁心頤) and Gary Yang (楊瑞代)

Jay: You little fool, this isn't a cello
I pluck the strings yet you're here eating dim sum
Just me is enough, wait for me to astonish all your bored expressions

There were clearly a group of people around but yet I couldn't hear
The thuds of the coins falling down, all I can do is carry on, the more I play the more serious I get
I slowly wait, slowly wait, slowly wait for people who have taste

The crowd respond with applause yet no money comes close
They've eaten everything clean off the plate, I really feel a bit irked

The stall next door uses my music as background music, somehow the performance is even smoother
So I cut the music off halfway, I watch you with a smile
What will you do (I'll see what you will do)

Yet you borrow another stall's music and even continue dancing
Through the kindness of my heart I remind you not to let the key run away
It would have been very funny, yet you hate me for being loud

How did I hinder you, you keep saying you have chemistry with me
It's music that's made us - East and West come together
A-gogo you don't know how to dance, when you dance your feet go numb and hands shake
If you want to perform you should choose the streets, there are more people there who get emotional

I'll teach you, please stand up, during the chorus remember to take a breath
Street dancing, miming, all mixed together
I've never been to the disco, I'm scared if I go I won't have enough money
When you meet make new friends, don't be too wordy, just one sentence - happiness and freedom

Lara: You little fool, this isn't a cello
I pluck the strings yet you're here eating dim sum
Just me is enough, wait for me to astonish all your bored expressions

Jay: There were clearly a group of people around but yet I couldn't hear
The thuds of the coins falling down, all I can do is carry on, the more I play the more serious I get
I slowly wait, slowly wait, slowly wait for people who have taste

Together: The crowd respond with applause yet no money comes close
They've eaten everything clean off the plate, I really feel a bit irked

Gary: The stall next door uses my music as background music
(Lara: The stall next door uses my music as background music)
Somehow the performance is even smoother
(Lara: Somehow the performance is even smoother)
Together: So I cut the music off halfway, I watch you with a smile
What will you do (I'll see what you will do, I don't care)

(There's still more)
