唔響獎你兩巴掌

小時候成日唱
「沖個涼無褲著
隔離婆仔燒炮仗
問你響唔響
唔響獎你兩巴掌」


《執個橙》 梁秉鈞

阿蘇蘇
偷錢買鬆糕
有粉唔搽搽鑊撈
有帽唔戴
戴個爛沙煲

行行行 行行行
行到街邊執個橙
橙好鮮甜路好行
椰子夾酸薑
雞蛋撈埋十五樣
隔離婆仔燒炮仗
問你響唔響
唔響打阿蘇兩巴掌

行行行 行行行
行到街邊執句話
話好盞鬼路好行

阿蘇公 唔知搵乜東東
買碌蔗 又生虫
買個餅 又穿窿
成日係垃圾堆丸竹筒
垃圾堆裡執出奇怪夢

Picking Plums

our little Jenny
stole a little penny
to buy a bun
muck instead of make-up
crack-pot on her head
just for fun

run run run
run down the road
adn pick a plum
sweet sweet plum
good road to run

ginger and coconut sandwich
a dozen kinds of scrambled egg
granny next door--baking a bun
"smell good, son?"
say no, get a smack--on the bum

run run run
run down the road
and get a rhyme
funny funny rhyme
good road to run

little master Jackie
bought some sugarcane, gone all yucky
bought some biscuits, gone all holey
always at the midden getting brooms
in the midden getting strange strange dreams

(translated by Brian Holton)
