Rhythm of the Rain

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain,
Telling me just what a fool I've been.
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain,
And let me be alone again.

The only girl I care about has gone away.
Looking for a brand new start!
But little does she know that when she left that day.
Along with her she took my heart.

Rain, please tell me now. Does that seem fair for her
To steal my heart away when she don't care
I can't love another, when my heart's somewhere far away.

The only girl I care about has gone away.
Looking for a brand new start!
But little does she know that when she left that day.
Along with her she took my heart.

Rain, won't you tell her that I love her so
Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
Rain in her heart and let the love we knew start to grow.

Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain,
Telling me just what a fool I've been.
I wish that it would go and let me cry in vain,
And let me be alone again.

Oh, listen to the falling rain--pitter-patter...

歌词大意:

  听那淅淅沥沥的雨声,它好象在说,我是个傻瓜。 我真希望雨停下来。 让我无望地哭泣, 让我再次孤身单影。
  我唯一在乎的姑娘已经离去, 去寻找她的新生活。 然而,她不知道, 当她离去的那天, 也将我的心带走。
  雨呀,请告诉我,那样公平吗?她偷走了我的心, 居然毫不在乎。 我无法再爱别人, 我的心已远远漂向异地。
  雨呀,你就不能告诉她 我多么地爱她, 请让太阳燃起她心中的爱苗, 让雨滋润她的心田。 让我们爱情之花重新盛开。
  哦,听那雨声, 噼哩啪啦。

歌词、句型分析

1、Listen to the rhythm Of the falling rain,telling me just what a fool I have been.
  = As I listen to the rhythm of the falling rain, it seems that it is telling me that I’ve been a stupid guy.
  听那淅淅沥沥的雨声,它好象在说,我是个傻瓜。

2、I wish that it would go and let me cry in wain….
  =I wish that the rain would stop and let me cry in wain…
  我真希望雨停下来,让我无望地哭泣,
  in vain 徒然,白费,无效,徒劳的
  eg: All our efforts were in vain, which made us very angry.
  我们所有的努力都白费了,真令人生气。

3、The only girl I care about has gone away, looking for a brand-new start!
  =The only girl that I love has left me and is looking for a new life!
  我唯一在乎的姑娘已经离去,去寻找她的新生活。
  Care about 喜欢,在乎
  eg: She doesn’t care about being ladylike
  她不在乎淑女仪态
  brand-new a. 全新的
  eg: Peter is showing off his brand-new motorcycle to his friends
  彼得正在对他的朋友们炫耀他的新摩托车。

4、But little does she know that when she left that day,along with her she took my heart.
  =But she doesn’t know that when she left that day,she also took my heart with her.
  然而,她不知道,当她离去的那天,也将我的心带走。

  But little does she know…此为否定倒装句型。
  eg: He was hardly able to tell right from wrong
  =Hardly was he able to tell right from wrong

5、Does that seem fair for her to steal my heart away when she don't care?
  =Does that seem fair for her to steal my heart away when about me?

  既然当时她不在乎我却又把我的心偷走,这样公平吗?

  本句中…she don’t care实应为…she doesn't care。但在口语中,尽管主语是第三人称单数,也有用don’t代替doesn't的用法。此处歌词为求发音方便,故用don’t。但正式写作应避免。一定要注意人称与单复数形式一致才是。

6、Please ask the sun to set her heart aglow
  请让太阳燃起她心中的爱苗。
  aglow a. 发热的,放光彩的
  set … aglow 使…发光、发热
  eg: At dawn the sun will set the sky aglow, which creates a beautiful picture.
黎明时,太阳照亮了天空,构成了一幅美丽的景象。
