浪子心聲 [From the Heart of a Loafer / Loafer's Advice] - Sam Hui 許冠傑 {Cantonese 76}

its not easy to distinguish between truth and falsehood
many humans are deceitful at heart
How many of them would share prosperity with you?

To equally share even the water drops from the rim of a roof?
I was an ignorant frog inside a well
Looking in vain for prestige and fame
Self-conceited and short-sighted

I never expected my elegant house would one day become a dilapidated wreck
We'll eventually gain whatever as fate would have it
We better not strive too hard for something not destined for us

We'll meet thunders and storms
but we don't have to be scared.
Happiest are those who have a fair mind and clear conscience
and who perform good deeds whenever possible

We'll eventually gain whatever as fate would have it
We better not strive too hard for something not destined for us

Human beings are just like sand in the sea
but we don't have to be scared

You can see the evening glow all over the sky
It'll soon disappear like mist; so do fame and fortune

You can see the evening glow all over the sky
It'll soon disappear like mist; so do fame and fortune
