戚建波 曲

                                   车行  词

找点空闲 找点时间

领着孩子 常回家看看

带上笑容  带上祝愿

陪同爱人  常回家看看

妈妈准备了一些唠叨

爸爸张罗了一桌好饭

生活的烦恼跟妈妈说说

工作的事情向爸爸谈谈

常回家看看 回家看看

哪怕帮妈妈刷刷筷子洗洗碗

老人不图儿女为家做多大贡献呀

一辈子不容易就图个团团圆圆

常回家看看 回家看看

哪怕给爸爸捶捶后背揉揉肩

老人不图儿女为家做多大贡献呀

一辈子总操心只奔个平平安安

2.2.29《她来听我的演唱会》

With more than 25 million records sold as of 2003, Jacky Cheung is regarded as one of the "Four Heavenly Kings" and has been deemed the "God of Songs" of Hong Kong.

她来听我的演唱会

词:梁文福

曲:黄明洲

她来听我的演唱会

在十七岁的初恋第一次约会

男孩为了她彻夜排队

半年的积蓄买了门票一对

我唱得她心醉    我唱得她心碎

三年的感情一封信就要收回

她记得月台汽笛声声在催

播我的歌陪着人们流泪

嘿 陪人们流泪

 

她来听我的演唱会

在二十五岁恋爱是风光明媚

男朋友背着她送人玫瑰

她不听电话夜夜听歌不睡

我唱得她心醉 我唱得她心碎

成年人分手后都像无所谓

和朋友一起买醉卡拉ok

唱我的歌 陪着画面流泪

嘿陪着流眼泪

 

我唱得她心醉 我唱得她心碎

在三十三岁真爱那么珍贵

年轻的女孩求她让一让位

让男人决定跟谁远走高飞

嘿谁在远走高飞

我唱得她心醉我唱得她心碎

她努力不让自己看来很累

岁月在听我们唱无怨无悔

在掌声里唱到自己流泪

嘿唱到自己流泪

她来听我的演唱会

在四十岁后听歌的女人很美

小孩在问她为什么流泪

身边的男人早已渐渐入睡

她静静听着我们的演唱会

1.3.31AB《你会买今年的新iPhone么》

Are you gonna buy iPhone 11 ?

#新iPhone于9月13日开始接受预订#外媒援引自一位苹果供应商人士的消息显示,苹果新款iPhone 11系列产品将于9月13日星期五开始接受预订,并在一周后的9月20日陆陆续续开始向预定客户发货。那么,你会买今年的新iPhone么? 

 

我觉得不好看,不买,其实是太穷了,买不起

—盐橙味奶盖 

这就是大家期待已久的iPhone 11,大家觉得如何?感觉肾保住了!

—盐城米老板 

这个摄像头的设计真的不好看耶,像极了浴霸,设计者是不是在洗澡的时候出现的灵感啊 ​

—Emily笑容 

 

用个耐用的苹果手机四五年不好吗,我的6s到现在依然坚挺,喷什么喷,这性价比算得来吧?您要是一年换一部安卓机当我没说。

—WLnix

我嫌它丑它嫌我穷

—远清今天也很困

当初苹果6出来也被说丑,包括我,还不是大把人卖肾各种法子买,其实手机就跟人一样,中看的不中用,中用的不中看,好用才是最实在,果粉五年,再换手机还是苹果。真心觉得便宜的东西除了买的时候开心,其他时候都不开心,贵的东西一定有它的道理

—不乖不萌丿 

iphonex刚出来的时候我说它有一点点丑 但还好

这个新iphone是真的丑的惨绝人寰 

我的6s p还可以再战几年

—甜不想吃 

我的小6,要加油哇💪

我们还可以再坚持坚持的

毕竟电池刚换完 ​

—小丸子壹贰叁

想要飞 xiǎng yào fēi 

却怎么样也飞不高què zěn me yàng yě fēi bù gāo 

也许有一天我栖上了枝头yě xǔ yǒu yī tiān wǒ qī shàng le zhī tóu 

却成为猎人的目标què chéng wéi liè rén de mù biāo

3.3.8B《中国的留守儿童》

"There is, of course, a now accepted view in the West that deprivation and childhood neglect can increase the likelihood of anti-social and criminal behaviour later in life.  But what strikes me when talking to the children we meet in Sichuan and Guizhou is not anger or resentment." __John Sudworth

3.3.8A《中国的留守儿童》

China had 61 million left-behind children...that's almost Britan's total population. 

 

中国用短短二三十年时间完成了其他国家耗时近一个世纪才能完成的工业化过程。和这场工业革命的速度同样惊人的是它的规模。在工业革命开始的时候,英国人口仅有1000万左右。中国今天的人口是当时英国的100倍以上。

Zhōngguó yòng duǎnduǎn èr sānshí nián shíjiān wánchéng le qítāguójiā hàoshí jìn yī ge shìjì cáinéng wánchéng de gōngyèhuà guòchéng .

Zhōngguó jīntiān de rénkǒu shì dāngshí Yīngguó de yībǎi bèi yǐshàng .

2013年之前的5年时间里,中国建筑工地上消耗的水泥以及银行发放的贷款相当于美国20世纪的总和。经济的迅猛增长往往伴随着社会问题,这些社会问题的严重程度可能连创作了《雾都孤儿》的小说家查尔斯·狄更斯都难以想象。要观察这些社会问题和社会代价的最佳角度,无疑是中国的“留守儿童”。

3.3.7A《李荣浩》

A breakout star in Chinese pop music, Li Ronghao is one of the most exciting newcomers in the industry. 

出道五年,发行五张专辑。李荣浩在乐坛的炙手可热,从他一加入《中国新说唱》就引发抢人大战可见一斑。但即使成名,他身上却找不到任何的骄傲与自满。他的人,就像他的歌那样,始终保持在自己的节奏上,没有一点世俗的杂音。

China's young people are fed up with the "rule of 996". But for Lin Rui and Li Pan, it's the compromise they have to make. 

毕业这两年,林睿常常被同学、朋友调侃称为“加班狗”,但他自己并不喜欢这样一个称呼,因为带个“狗”字,多少让他觉得没尊严。
