14.9 對,看到Pitbull(嘻哈鬥牛梗)當然就是嘻哈歌曲了。
我知道上次我們的調查結果顯示,這裡喜歡嘻哈歌曲的人較少。
老小姐也沒有特喜歡,但我是要你也別排斥這類型的歌。
尤其是對於想學英文的人來說,rap可以拿來訓練聽力。
從歌詞中也可認識到國外一些比較通俗的文化。

今天這首就當做實驗,也就是說沒有翻譯,
老小姐會看看大家的反應如何,如果大體上ok,
以後我們就部份歌曲作翻譯,部份不翻,或甚至都不要翻。


一直是很帥氣的Pitbull,這次新專輯Planet Pit一推出,
各別單曲都佔據著各項排行榜,氣勢十足。
倒是今天這首,目前並沒有出單曲,
老小姐是因為被Kelly Rowland所吸引才聽的。

這首歌由三個人唱,分成三部份。
兩位饒舌歌手都在有很多沙灘的邁阿密追尋自己的歌手夢,建造屬於自己的城堡。
只是這些夢想,名與利就有如沙做的城堡。
即使再怎麼有力量,堅固,這沙堡最終也會被海水沖倒,
這時Kelly Rowland扮演的角色就是支持他們去追夢,
一旦沙堡倒了,她也願意伸出援手。

再來,Pitbull的部份,先說明了他在對抗自己的劣根性。
他在唱歌前,也是專幹壞事,還仲介毒品交易。
他父母在他很小時就離異,是由母親一手帶大。
所以他主要是在向母親致意!他有能力、變好、會rap,一切都得感謝他的媽媽。

最後,是一位新人Jamie Drastik,他從紐約南下到邁阿密去奮鬥,
憑著正在坐牢的兄弟給他的力量,他要對自己也要給他的鄉親來證明自己是贏家。

[Kelly Rowland]
So you tried to believe in the castle made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand

[Pitbull]
I sacrifice my life to give you my life in speakers
I try to be good even though I've been crossed like Jesus
God knows I got a good heart but my blood is filled with demons
I'm fighting myself, believe me
I'm far from ignorant, far from greedy
If you knew what I come from, knew what I've been through
You think that I should've been another outcome
Just like most kids, a father I did it without one
Come from the city, where they X you like Malcolm   
Then you wonder how come
I can move in the room full of wolves so swift so smooth
Thank you mom for making me a man
Let a motherf*cker knock my castle in the sand

[Kelly Rowland]
So you tried to believe in the castle made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand
Reach for my hand

[Pitbull]
I live my whole life with the world on my shoulders
So I can care less what this music game throw us
I see them looking for the kiddies but they won't find them
I come from struggle, I'm a fighter, must you be reminded
My mother's past as a trap has her blinded
But I took her past, I took her pain
I made it strength, I fought the game
Do or die, Pitbull's the name
Now all I see is the future
Mom I love you, I salute you and no matter what happens
Just know you're the reason that I'm rapping

[Kelly Rowland]
So you tried to believe in the castle made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand
Reach for my hand

[Jamie Drastik]
Look
I'm from the home of the spinners, the winners, the big apple
Came down to south beach to build a new castle
Every day I'm hustling and every day you hassle
Doing what you can and I'm doing what I have to
Throw me in the jungle and I'll show you I'm a winner
I'm coming out with dinner and wearing a chinchilla
I did it for my town to show them the big picture
Get hit, the switch, I promise to never switch up
This is for my brother took three and went to jail
I'm sending all the pictures of my shows through the mail
He hit me with a letter, said: I know you'll never fail
So put me on a beach with a bucket and a pail

[Kelly Rowland]
So you tried to believe in the castle made of sand
When it falls to the sea and your feet can't find dry land
Reach for my hand
Reach for my hand
