 Lyrics :

Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me.
I ain't the sharpest tool in the shed.
She was lookin' kinda dumb with her finger and her thumb in the shape of an "L" on her forehead.
Well the years start coming, and they don't stop coming,
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground running.
Didn't make sense not to live for fun.
Your brain gets smart but your head gets dumb.
So much to do, so much to see
So what's wrong with taking the backstreets?
You'll never know if you don't go.
You'll never shine if you don't glow.

Hey now, you're an All Star! Get your game on, go play.
Hey now, you're a Rock Star! Get the show on, get paid.
And all that glitters is gold.
Only shooting stars break the mold.

It's a cool place, and they say it gets colder.
You're bundled up now, wait 'till you get older.
But the meteor men beg to differ
Judging by the hole in the satellite picture.
The ice we skate is getting pretty thin.
The water's getting warm so you might as well swim.
My world's on fire, how about your's?
That's the way I like it and I'll never get bored.

Hey now, you're an All Star! Get your game on, go play.
Hey now, you're a Rock Star! Get the show on, get paid.
And all that glitters is gold.
Only shooting stars break the mold.

Hey now, you're an All Star! Get your game on, go play.
Hey now, you're a Rock Star! Get the show on, get paid.
And all that glitters is gold.
Only shooting stars--

Somebody once asked could I spare some change for gas,
"I need to get myself away from this place."
I said "Yep, what a concept. I could use a little fuel myself.
And we could all use a little change."
Well, the years start coming and they don't stop coming.
Fed to the rules and I hit the ground the running.
Didn't make sense not to live for fun.
Your brain gets smart, but your head gets dumb.
So much to do, so much to see.
So what's wrong with taking the backstreets?
You'll never know if you don't go.
You'll never shine if you don't glow.

Hey now, you're an All Star! Get your game on, go play.
Hey now, you're a Rock Star! Get the show on, get paid.
And all that glitters is gold.
Only shooting stars break the mold.
And all that glitters is gold.
Only shooting stars break the mold.

:cool: 

Er ,"Somebody once told me the world is gonna roll me"

"gonna" is really a  slang"口语",and "roll me" is a slang that means it's gonna "roll you over",or take disadvantage of you ,you can't be capable to handle it,just like you are standing in the ocean ,and the wave pushes you over,or you roll down the hill.

" ain't the sharpest tool in the shed. "

"I ain't"is very slang,it means "is not", "i am not".

"sharpest tool in the shed",it's a phrase, the lyric here means "you are not smart",

so a tool is something maybe you  use ,like  a knife ,saw ,if they are not very sharp

,dull.

sharp, that's an another word to say a person is smart ,can say they really sharp ,they really know what's going on

so he said he is not very sharp,and  in the shed ,shed is a  small building,a place to store tools,he is saying the world is a shed,and all the peoples are tools,I am not the sharpest ,i am dull.i am not smart

so this is the first part

"She was lookin' kinda dumb with her finger and her thumb  in the shape of an "L" on her forehead"

"dump"傻,stupid,not smart,

"with her finger and her thumb"用食指和大拇指,in the shape of an "L" on her forehead,"L"is the first letter of the word"loser",somebody is not all star,someone can 't do anything,he is stupid,and sometimes the little kids make fun of each other ,they'll say you are  a loser,and do this"in the shape of an "L" on her forehead"

to say the person they are talking about,is dull,not smart.

so this person in the song is looking at a girl who is doing this"in the shape of an "L" on her forehead",because the girl think that he is a loser

this is mean,it's mean to do this ,you'd better not do B)

Mono lyrics - Life in Mono

Artist: Mono


The stranger sang a theme
From someone else’s dream
The leaves began to fall
And no one spoke at all
But I can’t seem to recall
When you came along
Ingenue

Ingenue
I just don’t know what to do

The tree-lined avenue
Begins to fade from view
Drowning past regrets
In tea and cigarettes
But I can’t seem to forget
When you came along
Ingenue

Ingenue
I just don’t know what to do

Ingenue
I just don’t know what to do

Ingenue
I just don’t know what to do

Ingenue
I just don’t know what to do

Ingenue (fade out)

Hi~I am back.

Let's make progress together,Later maybe I can buddy up with you:)

Today we talk about the song from the movie "Great Expectations".Now the Great Expectations is formed following a book by CHARLES DICKENS who is one of the famous English authors.And it's a very old book .

but they took place the story and set it in morden day .so the music from the movies is all modern music. and the song today is called "Life In Mono(单一人生)",Mono is actually the name of the band who sings the song,so they use their band name in the name of the song,

But "mono" also means one.So when you listen to music on the stereo,sometimes there is two serial you can hear around you ,if there is one stereo ,it's mono.and the sound can be strange because all sound are coming from the same direction you not hear it in both ears.

"Life In Mono"could also mean ,you know ,something is not quite balanced.

"The stranger sang a theme From someone else’s dream",so stranger is somebody you don't know,some one you never met before.

The "theme"is can be like a "melody",like a song ,and something that maybe repeat,

so this theme is "From someone else’s dream".that's not mine,someone else.so that's kind of strange,there is a stranger and someone else's dream. Something is not in nature in the song.

"The leaves began to fall And no one spoke at all",at all means not nothing."And no one spoke at all"is an emphasize of it.So this song is a very quiet song, a kind of weird.So let's listen to it:)
