NIGHT IN WHITE SATIN
Moody Blues




Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I'd always missed with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

'Cos I love you, yes I love you, oh how I love you.

Gazing at people, some hand in hand,
Just what I'm going through they can't understand.
Some try to tell me, thoughts they cannot defend,
Just what you want to be, you will be in the end.

And I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

Nights in white satin, never reaching the end,
Letters I've written, never meaning to send.
Beauty I've always missed, with these eyes before.
Just what the truth is, I can't say anymore.

'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.
'Cos I love you, yes I love you,
Oh how I love you, oh how I love you.

DON'T CRY OUT LOUD
Melissa Manchester




Baby cried the day the circus came to town
'cause she didn't want parades just passin' by her

So she painted on a smile and took up with some clown
While she danced without a net upon the wire

I know a lot about 'er 'cause, you see
Baby is an awful lot like me

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside, learn how to hide your feelings

Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all

Baby saw that when they pulled that big top down
They left behind her dreams among the litter

The different kind of love she thought she'd found
There was nothin' left but sawdust and some glitter

But baby can't be broken 'cause you see
She had the finest teacher - that was me - I told 'er

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside and learn how to hide your feelings

Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost had it all

Don't cry out loud
Just keep it inside and learn how to hide your feelings

Fly high and proud
And if you should fall, remember you almost made it

Phượng Hoàng là loài chim cao quý và bất tử. Trước khi chết, Phượng Hoàng tự đốt cháy thân mình bằng ngọn lửa vĩnh cửu để trở thành tro bụi. Rồi từ trong đống tro tàn, Phượng Hoàng bay lên cao và hồi sinh.

PHOENIX RISING
Annihilator




Day by day, watching you disappear
Wishing that you were still here beside me

On my own, swimming against the tide
There’s nobody on my side but your memory

Then you’ll rise right before my eyes
On wings that fill the sky

Like a phoenix rising
Like a phoenix rising

Wings on fire, tearing into the night
Screaming into the light of another day

Carry me out the hurricane
Into the smoke and flame and we’ll fly away

And we’ll rise right before their eyes
On wings that fill the sky

Like a phoenix rising
Like a phoenix rising

Higher, higher, hear the thunder roar from above
Fire, fire, fire makes me whole

And we’ll rise right before their eyes
On wings that fill the sky

Like a phoenix rising
Like a phoenix rising

Wings on fire, tearing in to the night
And we’ll fly away...

Chị thohoa thân mến, nhận được những lời nhắn của chị ở đây, MM rất cảm động. Ôi những người đồng hương Việt Nam trên đất Mỹ, các anh chị và các bạn đang ở đâu? Sao chúng ta không tìm đến với nhau? Sao chúng ta không nối vòng tay thân ái trong cộng đồng nhỏ này với nhau?

Sau khi rời khỏi ngôi nhà thứ nhất, MM đến share phòng tại ngôi nhà thứ hai, và chủ nhà là một nhân vật khá nổi tiếng trong cộng đồng người Việt (không chỉ do nhan sắc mà còn do đã từng nổi tiếng trước năm 1975). Mặc dù tuổi đã chạm đến con số 65, chị ấy vẫn còn đi làm nail ở thành phố Fullerton. Tiếng Anh của chị ấy cũng ba chập ba choạng, nhưng may mắn là khách hàng người Mỹ không có mấy nên chị ấy cũng không lo lắng đến tiếng Anh lẫn tiếng Em.

Qua trường hợp của chị chủ nhà cũ, MM rất mong chị thohoa chớ quá lo lắng về việc sử dụng ngôn ngữ nước ngoài không thông thạo. Trong nghề làm nails chỉ có một số câu thông dụng thôi, nếu chị thohoa cứ lặp đi lặp lại nhiều lần, chị sẽ phát âm nhuyễn nhừ như cháo, thậm chí lại còn tự tin nữa đó.

Chị thohoa hiện nay đang ở tiểu bang nào? Có chung California với MM không? Khi cần tâm sự với MM hoặc với tất cả mọi thành viên trong VDT, chị thohoa cứ vào trang U50 hoặc trang U60, mọi người sẽ có mặt và cùng chia sẻ với chi thohoa nha!

Bây giờ trở lại vấn đề tiếng Anh cho những người làm Nails, MM mời chị thohoa sang trang American Way 101 và tha hồ đặt câu hỏi tại:

viewtopic.php?p=86143#p86143

Thân mến, và chúc chị thohoa luôn tự tin vào bản thân.

I DIDN'T MEAN TO HURT YOU
John Lennon




I was dreaming of the past
And my heart was beating fast
I began to lose control
I began to lose control

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I was feeling insecure
You might not love me anymore
I was shivering inside
I was shivering inside

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy

I was trying to catch your eyes
Thought that you was trying to hide
I was swallowing my pain
I was swallowing my pain

I didn't mean to hurt you
I'm sorry that I made you cry
Oh no, I didn't want to hurt you
I'm just a jealous guy, watch out
I'm just a jealous guy, look out babe
I'm just a jealous guy

ONE IN A MILLION
Bosson




You're one in a million
Oh
Now
You're one in a million
Oh

Sometimes I can't hate you every day
Sometimes you can fall for everyone you see
Only one can really make me stay
A sign from the sky
Said to me

You're one in a million
You're once in a lifetime
You made me discover all the stars above us

You're one in a million
You're once in a lifetime
You made me discover all the stars above us

I've been looking for that special one
And I've been searching for someone to give my love
And when I thought that all the hope was gone
You smile, there you were and I was gone

I always will remember how I felt that day
A feeling indescribable to me
I always knew there was an answer for my prayer
And you, you're the one for me

You're one in a million
You're once in a lifetime
You made me discover all the stars above us

You're one in a million
You're once in a lifetime
You made me discover all the stars above us

I was cool and everything was possible
You tried to catch me but it wasn't possible
Nobody could hurt me it was my game
Until I met you baby and went insane

And when you didn't want me, I wanted you
Because the finer thing bout it was I like to go
I like it when its difficult I like it when it's hard
You know it's worth it if you find your heart

You're one in a million
You're one in a million

I'M JUST A DREAMER
Ozzy Osbourne




Gazing through the window at the world outside
Wondering will mother earth survive
Hoping that mankind will stop abusing her, sometime

After all there's only just the two of us
And here we are still fighting for our lives
Watching all of history repeat itself
Time after time

I'm just a dreamer
I dream my life away
I'm just a dreamer
Who dreams of better days

I watch the sun go down like everyone of us
I'm hoping that the dawn will bring a sign
A better place for those who will come after us
This time

I'm just a dreamer
I dream my life away, oh yeah
I'm just a dreamer
Who dreams of better days

Your higher power may be God or Jesus Christ
It doesn't really matter much to me
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us
I'm living in a dream of fantasy

If only we could all just find serenity
It would be nice if we could live as one
When will all this anger, hate and bigotry
Be gone?

I'm just a dreamer
I dream my life away,
I'm just a dreamer
Who dreams of better days
I'm just a dreamer
Who's searching for the way,
I'm just a dreamer,
Dreaming my life away

MR. LONELY
Bobby Vinton




Lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely,
I have nobody for my own.
I'm so lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely,
wish_I had someone to call_on the phone.

I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier,
Away from home through no wish_of my own.
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely,
I wish that_I could go back_home.

Letters, never a letter,
I get no letters in the mail.
I've been forgotten, yeah, forgotten,
Oh how I wonder how_is_it_I failed.

I'm a soldier, a lonely soldier,
Away from home through no wish_of my own.
That's why I'm lonely, I'm Mr. Lonely,
I wish that_I could go back_home

I LOVE HOW YOU LOVE ME
Maureen Evans




I love how your_eyes close whenever you kiss me
And when_I'm away from you I love how you miss me
I love the way you_always treat me tenderly
But darlin' most_of_all I love how you love me

I love how your heart beats whenever I hold_you
I love how you think_of me without being told to
I love the way your touch_is_always heavenly
But darlin' most_of_all I love how you love me

I love how your eyes close whenever you kiss me
And when_I'm away from you I love how you miss me
I love the way your touch_is_always heavenly
But darlin' most_of_all I love how you love me

I love how you hug me
I love how you squeeze me, tease me, please me
Love how you love me

I love how you love me
I Love how you want me
Love how you love me

I KNOW I NEED TO BE IN LOVE
Karen Capenters




The hardest thing I've_ever done
Is keep believing
There's someone_in this crazy world for me

The way that people come_and go
Through temporary lives
My chance could come_and_I might never know

I used to say "no promises,
Let's keep_it simple"
But freedom_only helps you say good-bye

It took_a while for me to learn
That nothin' comes for free
The price_I've paid_is high enough for me

I know I need to be_in love
I know I've wasted too much time

I know I_ask perfection_of_a quite_imperfect world
And fool_enough to think that's what_I'll find

So here_I_am with pockets full_of good_intentions
But none of them will comfort me tonight

I'm wide_awake_at four_a.m.
Without_a friend_in sight
Hanging_on_a hope but_I'm alright

I know I need to be_in love
I know I've wasted too much time

I know I_ask perfection_of_a quite_imperfect world
And fool_enough to think that's what_I'll find

-----------------------------------------------------

1. Trong bản nhạc này có một điều thú vị trùng hợp, là sáng nào MM cũng thức dậy lúc 4 giờ, và cũng nhìn thấy chung quanh MM hoàn toàn trống trải, không có một người bạn thân nào ở bên cạnh.

2. Nếu lắng nghe kỹ, các bạn sẽ nhận ra những chỗ đọc nối.

3. Keep hoặc keep on + một noun (hoặc một gerund). Ví dụ: I keep believing that there's someone outside waiting for me.

hay quá cô ơi!
Con sẽ cố gắng học!

392543 top -

Cô MM cảm ơn con. Bản thân cô cũng nghe đi nghe lại mỗi bài hát vài lần - để có thể phát âm luyến láy giống hệt như người ca sĩ. Nghe nhạc lướt lướt như "cưỡi ngựa xem hoa" thì ai nghe cũng được. Nghe nhạc nếu biết dò theo lyrics, biết quan sát cách phát âm của người bản xứ, thì việc nghe nhạc sẽ có ích lợi hơn.

admin cũng thấy hay quá, cô ơi!
