但是你没有 But You Didn't...
Remember the day I borrowed your brand new car and dented it?
I thought you'd kill me, but you didn't.
And remember the time I dragged you to the beach, and you said it would rain, and it did?
I thought you'd say, "I told you so." But you didn't.
Do you remember the time I flirted with all the guys to make you jealous, and you were?
I thought you'd leave, but you didn't.
Do you remember the time I spilled strawberry pie all over your car rug?
I thought you'd hit me, but you didn't.
And remember the time I forgot to tell you the dance was formal and you showed up in jeans?
I thought you'd drop me, but you didn't.
Yes, there were lots of things you didn't do.
But you put up with me, and loved me, and protected me.
There were lots of things I wanted to make up to you when you returned from Vietnam.
But you didn't.

I am a Solitary Blade of Grass
Why do you say I am a national treasure?
No, pandas are the treasures of our nation!
I am nothing but a solitary blade of grass,
In terms of figures,I am really quite slim.
I 've been raised up with rains,dews and sunshine,
The blue sky and white clouds greet me with smiles;
Pretty flowers have kept me company,
How can I be lonely,not happy and carefree?
Sometimes I seem to be toppling down,
But I will never swing with the wind;
Or flow with the stream,
Nor do I win favor with crooked means.
Tempered in the smoke of war,
Tortured through the test of a hard life,
Even though I'm next to nothing,
Yet I'm a proud blade of grass!
A Red Red Rose
O, my Luve's like a red, red rose
That's newly sprung in June;
O, my Luve's like the melodie,
That's sweetly play'd in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Till a' the seas gang dry.
Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun;
I will luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.
And fare-thee-weel, my only Luve!
And fare-thee-weel, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' 'twere ten thousand mile!
