Blowin' in the Wind

How many roads must a man walk down
Before they call him a man
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand
How many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind
 
How many years must a mountain exist
Before it is washed to the sea
How many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind
 
How many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry
How many deaths will it take
'Till he knows that too many people have died
The answer, my friend, is blowing in the wind
The answer is blowing in the wind

随风飘荡

一个人要走多少路
别人才把他称为人
一只白鸽要飞越多少海
才能在沙滩沉睡
炮弹要发射多少次
才会被永远报废
我的朋友,答案就在风中飘荡
答案就在风中飘荡

一座山要存在多少年
才能被大海淹没
一些人要生活多少年
才能获得自由
一个人要转多少次头
还假装什么都看不见
我的朋友,答案就在风中飘荡
答案就在风中飘荡

一个人要仰望多少次
才能看见天空
一个人要有多少耳朵
才能听到人们的哭声
到底还要死多少人
他才能知道太多的人已死去
我的朋友,答案就在风中飘荡
答案就在风中飘荡

背景简介:2016诺贝尔文学奖得主鲍勃·迪伦近日缺席颁奖仪式,再一次引起各方关注,而他的获奖作品,就包含这首《Blowing in the Wind》。它创作于1962年,是让鲍勃·迪伦声名鹊起的第一首经典作品。歌曲虽然是当时美国民权运动和反越战争的产物,但却跳出了口号的创作模式,而将这种超越现实、超越时空的普世价值,以疑问句的形式,引发了所有歌迷的反思。郑钧评价迪伦:他让音乐真正变成表达人生观和态度的一个工具。鲍勃·迪伦的大多数著名作品都来自1960年代的反抗民谣,被广泛认为是美国新兴的反叛文化的代言人。
