unknown song  
ta men shuo, ai shang ni
shi wo yi sheng de cuo
ke shi zai ai shang ni yi qian
wo you zuo dui le shen me

ta men shuo, ai shang ni
shi wo yi sheng de cuo
dan zai ai shang ni yi qian
wo you zuo dui le shen me

i wanted to type these lyrics out in chinese, but this "inside-computer" i'm using now doesn't have chinese star, and i don't know how to make it produce chinese characters otherwise. (next to the fact that i'll probably come up with a text full of cuo4 bie2 zi4s anyway...) and the scanner's mysteriously ceased working properly on this computer too, so i can't even write those words out manually and scan them in. and i can't record a .wav file of myself singing the song either; number one 'cos i neither have a mike nor herr kim's hi-tech recording programmes and stuff, number two 'cos i don't have a nice singing voice (according to xiao_hei... so sad hor?).

i know reading them in hanyu pinyin without tune or notes or what the crap just makes it seem like another bunch of lousy words. but i really like the tune, the way the song goes, and of course, the meaning of the lyrics lah... sounds like something i would have told myself a few years back... but then, now, of course, i know that there are actually quite a few things that i did right. and even the first two lines might not really apply too. i just like the song lah.

i was so desperate not to forget the tune that i actually went and opened the lid of the piano and tinkered around on it for a while. man, it's been a long time... like, maybe since before school started lah. then my sister walked past the room and said, "my sister, the one-hit wonder on the piano". (and you all know which that "one hit" song of mine is lah) and then we remembered the joke about me, playing in a silent movie in spain, and mr. leong (jc civics) sitting in the audience, clapping like mad... damn funny... his "if mozart had been a girl..."

yeah, and anyway, i managed to come up with my usual pattern of lousy amateur chords for the song, so it sounds slightly better than just one-hand. can anyone who actually knows this song -- its title and singer etc. please tell me about it?! xiao_hei, go quiz kee liom on it! i'll win his love and care and attention and money in no time man! ;p i feel like an old woman...... :/
Mood: peaceful
Music: dan zai ai shang ni yi qian, wo you zuo dui le shen me...
