Milan's Small Ironsmith

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


I ran across the ranch
I have gone around the village
He stands in the old newsstand on the corner of the street
Eyes fixed on
The display window inside next door
A guitar
I admire it from far away
Charcoal
A large bamboo-basket
Charcoal
Constantly putting in
Charcoal
Half left
Heat the stove
The small ironsmith saves money to buy hope
Sweating
Baroque architecture side street
A pub that has mist winding around
The Pole who recites and sings poetry is playing while singing
The ironsmith is outside the door
Cannot enter, I am worried
He doesn't have enough copper coins
He really really wants to know
(That folk song that originated from eastern Europe
And the chord, at last what is the tune)
Milan's sky has just turned dawn
(Those horseshoes still needs
To be knocked how many times
Before I can buy the guitar)
He really really wants to know
(He doesn't know how to do something so that it is good
Cannot sleep)
He takes that piggy bank and breaks it
(The very small wish is nearly going to come true
He is laughing)
