北京理工大学物理系研究生。自幼喜欢音乐,但由于英语不好,一直对英文歌曲心存畏忌。自从发现了“流行金曲”这个栏目后,它丰富的内容,深邃的思想使我对英文歌曲产生了浓厚了兴趣。在欣赏各种英文歌曲的同时,我积累了一点儿想法和见解,很想把它们表达出来并和大家一起分享,多谢LT提供了这次机会,还望大家多提宝贵意见。)

 

 英语论坛 Easy English“流行金曲”大家评(三)

 中文歌词倘若她是天使

 我听之我见初见歌名,以为这是一首情歌,但细细一听,其实不然。富有磁性的嗓音,娓娓诉说式的旋律,旨在传达歌手真诚的劝说:请善待他人,即使面对陌生人,在他们有困难的时候,我们也应该伸出援助之手。

  Lyrics    

What if she's an angel         by    Tommy Shane Steiner

There's a man standing on the corner
With a sign sayin "will work for food"
You know the man
You see him every morning
The one you never give your money to

You can sit there with your window rolled up
Wondering when the lights going to turn green
Never knowing what a couple more bucks
In his pocket might mean

What if he's an angel sent here from Heaven
And he's making certain that you're doing your best
To take the time to help one another
Brother, are you going to pass that test
You can go on with your day to day
Trying to forget what you saw in his face
Knowing deep down it could have been his saving grace
What if he's an angel

There's a man
There's a woman
Living right above you in apartment G
There's a lot of noise coming through the ceiling
And it don't sound like harmony
You can sit there with your TV turned up
While the words and his anger fly
Come tomorrow when you see her with her shades on
Can you look her in the eye

What if she's an angel sent here from heaven
And she's making certain that you're doing your best
To take the time to help one another
Brother, are you going to pass that test
You can go on with your day to day
Trying to forget what you saw in her face
Knowing deep down it could have been her saving grace
What if she's an angel

A little girl on daddy's lap
Hiding her disease with a baseball cap
You can turn the channel
Most people do
But what if you were sitting in her daddy's shoes

Maybe she's an angel
Sent here from Heaven
And she's making certain you're doing your best
To take the time to help one another
Brother,are you going to pass that test?
You can go on with your day to day
Trying to forget what you saw in her face
Knowing deep down it could have been her saving grace
What if she's an angel
