《山坡羊·叹世·晨鸡初叫》 陈草庵

晨鸡初叫,
昏鸦争噪,
那个不去红尘闹?
路遥遥,
水迢迢,
功名尽在长安道。
今日少年明日老。
山,依旧好,
人,憔悴了。

Tune: Sheep on the Slope
O World
Chen Cao’an
At dawn cock crows,
At dusk caw crows.
Who to vanity fair is not eager to go?
Long long the way;
Far far the stream.
Only in the capital can you fullfil your dream.
Tomorrow old will grow the youth of today.
The hills are as green as before,
But the prime of youth is no more.
