Popular Imitation

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


The songs with Chinese style
Are increasing and not decreasing
Some are good, some are bad
Ask Vincent Fang, he knows it best
From Wife to Nun-Chuks
East Wind Breaks to Hair Like Snow
Coming along all the time, constant from beginning to end
A diversity of song styles
Only love Chinese style

I insist on my style
I live in my own world
No one can interrupt me
Singing the opposite
Is my natural instincts
Take them by surprise
Is my personality
Even if I'm standing on the hilltop
I'm only a common person
But on my shoulders
There will be two spaces
That is courage and perseverance
I want to be the emperor in music
He he ha hei
He he ha hei
He he ha hei
He he ha hei
The downward slope path
Doesn't require any effort
Other people already help you to lay the ground
But I chose the upward slope
Because I was named responsible
Modesty and that falseness
Is only one word different
Sometimes you can't tell the difference
Because I like the true me

I cannot retreat
Because it is not green leaves
If it is only embellished
I'm willing to be the clear and bright moon
The little grass waits for the wind to blow
Doesn't need to lean on your back
If the sky will be very dark
I would invite the goddess of the moon to fly to the moon

Why did I write this song?
I still can't find a motive now
But pay attention and listen to it
You will feel it is even more meaningful
If you develop a fear towards the future
And it is misty in front of your eyes
That is because you haven't cleaned your glasses
Courageously keep going down
This song will accompany you forward
I'm often thinking
The universe only has one sun
Why do I have so many shadows?
So much like
Defeating the mirage
And the friends that
Like to imitate
Just like me
Worshiping is a good thing
Admiration is a virtue
But if you walk behind me
I'm very worried
Other people will not be able to see you
To the end it is only one after another of clones
This kind of encouragement
Is it too direct and too satire?
The teacher is talking
Have you been listening at all?
I'll tell you
Being yourself beats following closely
Your biggest enemy is that self in your heart

I cannot retreat
Because it is not green leaves
If it is only embellished
I'm willing to be the clear and bright moon
The little grass waits for the wind to blow
Doesn't need to lean on your back
If the sky will be very dark
I would invite the goddess of the moon to fly to the moon

Ai you ai you o
Ai you ai you o o
Ai you ai you o
Ai you ai you o o
Ai you ai you o
Ai you ai you o o
Ai you ai you o
Ai you ai you o o
