01.〈天命〉Destiny

出力 用埋腰力

莫忘今夕 風雨下全力拼

出力 落來捃食

命窮腰直 一世自求力拼

 

大海 問船何往

破開千番風浪 

養起一家希望

大海 像男兒漢       

肝膽壯 全力去闖

我話從未信天會絕望

 

一方水土養一方人 

隻身到香港捃黃金

今朝雖欠運 龍游淺水氹 

擔杆挑斷腳瓜不軟繼續尋

今朝雖欠運 龍游淺水氹 

擔杆挑斷腳瓜不軟繼續尋

做咕哩落貨搬晒鳩就

話春知啲嘢有甩漏

為三餐受氣抆吓衫袖

月底掹掹夠飲花酒

 

呢 今晚收工我地去邊呢

花街柳巷尋呀豔 

哎唷阿妹樣靚聲甜

撐撐撐我撐到似隻狗

晚晚我吔飯 皺住眉頭

嫁個老襯我無晒佢收 

撞鬼咩揼心口 有排受

大家聽住 聽朝開始

每一支簽 

跟新規矩減一個仙

講好七仙一支簽

減減下得返三仙

 

即管躝屍 悉隨尊便   

 

出力 為求衣食

做人忠直 乞米係無道理

等一生只等一個奇蹟

氣數未定

膽搏膽出海捃食

我 妥協過屈曲過

誰人又在乎我

敢我命由我不由天       

時間太快 早洗走了年華

時間太快 偏偏你未歸家

時間太快 小寶長高了嗎

記得一歲那年

懷裏叫你做爸爸

時間到了 煲水再泡壺茶 /

一生愛 一世在

時間到了 小寶正在等他 /

歲月悠悠未變 放心內

時間過了 生哥歸家了嗎 /

山海遠 萬里隔天外

記得初見那時

橋頭贈我杜鵑花

細細佢歲半會跳會走

咬咬兩歲重瞓住床頭

渺渺八歲愛跳上閣樓

一家幾口子又到中秋

暫居小島我叫它香港 /

潮州人

米柴油鹽原來無價講 /

一世頭頂天

 

早午晚碼頭船來又往 /

氣運如撥扇

 

蘇蝦仔他朝開大米行 /

攞膊頭捃錢

 

細佬陳一水

一世頭頂天 氣運如撥扇 /

一生愛 一世在

出碼頭捃錢 /

歲月悠悠未變 放心內

大海 問誰同往

破開千翻風浪 

去追心中天堂

 

浮浮沉沉大半世兜踎

咕哩邊會有得食

誰人求財就要跟住蒞

無謂怨命

全力去闖我話人定勝天

無路行就上船搏命

大海 像男兒漢 /

天命 若然整定

肝膽壯 乘浪去闖 /

係條苦命 改變自求力拼

信是人定勝天 氣萬丈

天命 整定

天命 苦命

生死有命 唔係我揀

人就係要捃食

Wield all your strength

Despite wind and rain, give it all

Word hard! We come here to make a living

Without nothing to our names,

we struggle to survive

 

The sea carries our boats

Battling thundering waves,

we sustain our families

The sea is strong as a man.

Emboldened, we strive

We strive with our might,

Heaven won’t forsake us

 

Places define people.

I come here to get rich

I may be a hapless coolie,

but I dream of a better life

I may be a hapless coolie,

but I dream of a better life

 

After we finish a full load

The foreman still complains

In order to survive,

we swallow our pride                                                     

At month’s end,

we make just enough for a night out

 

Where should we go tonight?

To the brothel’s pretty,

sweet-talking girls

 

I work like a harried bitch

Every night when I eat,

my brows are furrowed

I married a good-for-nothing, I’m at a loss

All I can do is to pound

my chest as I suffer

 

Attention! As of tomorrow

Your chits will be

reduced by a cent

 

We agreed on 7 cents per chit

Now it dwindles to 3 cents

 

Scram if you want!

Be my guest

 

We work hard to make a living

An honest man shouldn’t beg for rice

 

I wait all my life for a miracle

My fate isn’t sealed                             

I have no fear, I’ll work at sea

 

I’ve compromised and

settled for much less

Who cares about me?

I’m master of my own fate

 

Time flew by, youth has passed

Time flew by, you haven’t returned home

Time flew by.

Has Siu Bo grown?

When he was one,

he called you Papa

Water is ready for tea /

Love of my life

Siu Bo’s waiting now /

My love remains with time

Will you return? It’s late /

Beyond the sea, far away

When we first met,

you gave me an azalea

 

At 18 months, Little Sai jumps and runs

Ngau sleeps on the headboard at 2

Miu loves climbing up to the attic at 8

It’s Mid-Autumn Festival,

as families gather

Hong Kong, my temporary

home / Chiuchow folks

You can’t bargain for food /

With head held high

Boats dock day and night /

Luck is in the air

One day, my son will be a

merchant / Making money

 

I’m Chan Yat Shui

With head held high, luck is

here / Love never changes

 

Making money at the pier /

My love remains with time

 

Who’ll traverse the seas

Breaking relentless waves

Pursuing Heaven

in one’s heart

 

Wallowing half my life

A coolie can’t make enough

Follow me, if you want

to get rich

Don’t blame fate

Man will vanquish,

Heaven will succumb

Work at sea, give

everything you have

The sea is strong as a man /

So what if Destiny is fixed?

Braving the waves /

I’ll fight and overcome bitter fate

 

Man will vanquish,

Heaven will succumb

Destiny, fixed

Destiny, bitter fate

Life is predestined.

I don’t have a choice

Man must make a living
