一日一迪伦273:街坊恶霸 - 李皖 - 李皖的博客
 


Neighborhood Bully


Well, the neighborhood bully, he’s just one man
His enemies say he’s on their land
They got him outnumbered about a million to one
He got no place to escape to, no place to run
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully just lives to survive
He’s criticized and condemned for being alive
He’s not supposed to fight back, he’s supposed to have thick skin
He’s supposed to lay down and die when his door is kicked in
He’s the neighborhood bully

The neighborhood bully been driven out of every land
He’s wandered the earth an exiled man
Seen his family scattered, his people hounded and torn
He’s always on trial for just being born
He’s the neighborhood bully

Well, he knocked out a lynch mob, he was criticized
Old women condemned him, said he should apologize
Then he destroyed a bomb factory, nobody was glad
The bombs were meant for him. He was supposed to feel bad
He’s the neighborhood bully

Well, the chances are against it and the odds are slim
That he’ll live by the rules that the world makes for him
’Cause there’s a noose at his neck and a gun at his back
And a license to kill him is given out to every maniac
He’s the neighborhood bully

He got no allies to really speak of
What he gets he must pay for, he don’t get it out of love
He buys obsolete weapons and he won’t be denied
But no one sends flesh and blood to fight by his side
He’s the neighborhood bully

Well, he’s surrounded by pacifists who all want peace
They pray for it nightly that the bloodshed must cease
Now, they wouldn’t hurt a fly. To hurt one they would weep
They lay and they wait for this bully to fall asleep
He’s the neighborhood bully

Every empire that’s enslaved him is gone
Egypt and Rome, even the great Babylon
He’s made a garden of paradise in the desert sand
In bed with nobody, under no one’s command
He’s the neighborhood bully

Now his holiest books have been trampled upon
No contract he signed was worth what it was written on
He took the crumbs of the world and he turned it into wealth
Took sickness and disease and he turned it into health
He’s the neighborhood bully

What’s anybody indebted to him for?
Nothin’, they say. He just likes to cause war
Pride and prejudice and superstition indeed
They wait for this bully like a dog waits to feed
He’s the neighborhood bully

What has he done to wear so many scars?
Does he change the course of rivers? Does he pollute the moon and stars?
Neighborhood bully, standing on the hill
Running out the clock, time standing still
Neighborhood bully



街坊恶霸

[美]鲍勃·迪伦
陈震 译


哦,街坊恶霸,他只是一个男人
他的敌人说他占了他们的土地
他们的人数是他的一百万倍
他无处可逃,无路可跑
他是街坊恶霸

街坊恶霸只是为了活下去
他因活着受到批评和谴责
他不应该还手,他应该脸皮厚
他应该躺下来受死,当他的门被踢开
他是街坊恶霸

街坊恶霸被逐出每一片土地
他在地球上游荡,一个被放逐的人
他的家人流落四方,他的人民饱受侵扰
他永远因为降生而受审
他是街坊恶霸

哦,他击昏一个动私刑的暴民,他受到了批评
老太太谴责他,说他应该道歉
然后他摧毁了一个炸弹工厂,没有人高兴
这些炸弹是为他准备的,他应该感到难过
他是街坊恶霸

哦,他会遵守世界为他制定的规则?
机会不大,概率太低
因为他的脖上套着绞索,后背顶着把枪
杀他的执照颁发给了每个杀人狂
他是街坊恶霸

他没有真正的盟友
他想得到什么必须付钱,没人出于爱送给他
他买废旧武器时不会被拒绝
但没人送来血肉之躯与他并肩拼杀
他是街坊恶霸

哦,他周围的人都是和平主义者
他们每晚祈祷杀戮结束
喏,他们连一只苍蝇都不忍伤害,伤害一只他们会流泪
他们躺着,等着街坊恶霸入睡
他是街坊恶霸

每个奴役过他的帝国都不复存在
埃及和罗马,甚至伟大的巴比伦
他在沙漠中造了一个天堂花园
不与谁结党,不受谁管辖
他是街坊恶霸

如今他最神圣的书被人践踏
他签的所有条约都是不平等条约
他拿走世界的饼屑,把它变成财富
拿走世界的疾病,把它变成健康
他是街坊恶霸

他们感激他做了哪些事?
不感激,他们说。他只是喜欢引发战争
的确是傲慢、偏见和迷信
他们等待街坊恶霸,像狗等待喂食
他是街坊恶霸

他做了什么,怎么一身伤疤?
他改变了河水的流向吗?污染了月亮和星星吗?
街坊恶霸,站在山巅
拖延时间,时间凝固
街坊恶霸
