Listen To Mother's Words

Composer: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)
Lyricist: Jay Chou (周杰倫) (周杰伦)


Kid
Do you have a lot of question marks?
Why
Are other people watching cartoons
Yet I'm learning how to paint
And talking to the piano
Other people are playing videogames
Yet I'm leaning against the wall reciting my ABC
I said I wanted a big plane
Yet all I got was an old tape recorder
Why do I have to listen to mother's words?
After you grow up you'll begin to understand these words
After I grew up I began to understand
Why do I run faster than other people
Fly higher than other people
In the future all people will watch is the cartoons I draw
All people will sing is the songs I write
Mother's hardships, she doesn't let you see them
The warm recipes are in her heart
If you got time, hold her hand more
Hold hands and sleep walk together

Listen to mother's words
Don't let her get hurt
Want to quickly grow up
Then I can protect her
The beautiful white hair
Sprouting in happiness
The angel's magic
Benevolent in warmth

In your future
Music is your trump card
Taking your trump card to have a date
Oh dear! I don't want to lead you astray
You should just listen to your mother's words
You can start dating later
I know your future road
But mother is even clearer about it than me
You will begin to write this and that on your bag like the other students
But I suggest that it's best if you write Mother, I will do my best to study
Do my best to study
How did that come out from my mouth?
Don't want you to lose
So I tell you to do your best to study

The wool sweater mother knitted for you
You should keep it well
Because on Mother's Day I have to tell her I still have it
Yes
I met Chow Yung Fat
So you can show off to your classmates that the God of Gambling will be your father in the future
I can't find the love letter I wrote in my childhood
Don't give it to the person when you finished writing it
Because after two days you will pick it up in the playground
You will begin to like pop songs
Because Jacky Cheung is about to sing Goodbye Kiss

Listen to mother's words
Don't let her get hurt
Want to quickly grow up
Then I can protect her
The beautiful white hair
Sprouting in happiness
The angel's magic
Benevolent in warmth
