Donna Donna

60年代的民謠吉他手Joan Baez的曲子,我最喜歡的一首
Joan Baez一生擁護民權運動與反暴力

歌曲說著牛兒羨慕燕子能夠自由飛翔
而自己卻必須承受被宰殺命運的故事

但是又有多少人,能夠珍惜得來不易的飛翔呢?

幸運可以飛翔人,還要告訴更多的人
有很多人,仍無法飛翔…

On a wagon bound for market
有一輛前往市場的牛車
There’s a calf with a mournful eye
跟著一隻眼神哀悽的小牛
High above him there’s a swallow
在牠的頭上有一隻燕子

Winging swiftly through the sky
輕盈的飛過天空

How the winds are laughing
風兒都在笑著
They laugh with all they might
它們盡情的笑著
Laugh and laugh the whole day through
笑啊!笑啊!笑了一整天
And half the summer’s night
笑到仲夏的午夜

Donna Donna Donna Donna
Donna Donna Donna Do
Donna Donna Donna Donna
Donna Donna Donna Do

“Stop complaining” said the farmer
別再抱怨了! “農夫說
“Who told you a calf to be
“誰叫你是一隻牛呢?
Why don’t you have wings to fly with
誰叫你沒有一雙可以飛翔的翅膀,
Like the swallow so proud and free
像燕子一樣既驕傲又自由 “

Calves are easily bound and slaughtered
牛天生註定要被宰殺
Never knowing the reason why
從來沒人知道為什麼
But who ever treasures freedom
但又有誰會珍惜自由
Like the swallow has learned to fly
像燕子得學會飛行一樣
