I’ve got nicotine stains on my fingers 我有被尼古丁染上色斑的手指 I’ve got a silver spoon on a chain 我有拴着链条的银勺子 Got a grand piano to prop up my mortal remains 有豪华的钢琴支起我疼痛的躯体 I’ve got wild staring eyes 我有茫然的眼睛 And I’ve got a strong urge to fly 我还有强烈的欲望飞翔 But I’ve got nowhere to fly to 却不知道飞往何方
Ooh, babe, whem I pick up the phone 哦,宝贝,当我拿起电话 There’s still nobody home 还是没人在家 I’ve got a pair Gohills boots 我有一双戈希尔斯登山靴 And I’ve got fading roots 我还有褪色的鞋底
