“Walk A Pig on My Bike (2012)”

“Walk A Pig on My Bike (2012),” from their double-disc second album Some Other Scenery (2012), is a new rendition of an earlier song by the Guangzhou-based folk band Wu Tiao Ren. The twenty-one songs from this album (nineteen, including this one, are sung in the local dialect of Haifeng county in Guangdong province, the hometown of band members Amao and Renke, both on guitars and vocals here) are vivid sketches of both historic stories of the Haifeng region and the contemporary lives of drifters in Guangzhou.

Wu Tiao Ren

Hey, friend! Don’t ask me:
“Have you seen all the cars and scooters in Haifeng?”
I often see them roaring by
Red light or green light, they never give a damn

Hey, friend! Don’t ask me:
“Have you eaten fake eggs and gutter oil?”
Bumming in Guangzhou with my low life
To hell with it! I can eat a bomb and get by

I’m walking a pig on my bike
I’m walking a pig on my bike
I’m walking a pig on my bike
I’m walking a pig on my bike

—Friend, oh friend. Let me tell it like it is. You gotta be real! The world doesn’t work the way you’d like. Look at yourself, what a loser! You gotta have some aspiration. Find a job and make some money. It’s time to get a wife ...

—Hey friend, oh friend. Don’t you have anything better to do? Stop preaching Jesus to me! The world is as big as my imagination. Tomorrow morning, I’m gonna jump on a bus to Guangzhou. Give me a call if you wanna do some idling about ...

(My father always says: “Work hard while you are young; eat well while you still got teeth.”)

I’m walking a pig on my bike
(“Guangzhou is a civilized metropolis; scooters are uncivilized means of transportation.” —What is your opinion?)

I’m walking a pig on my bike
(When will we see that village called Cow Pie Puddle near Tao River again? —Next time when we worship our ancestors.)

I’m walking a pig on my bike
(A chengguan told several Uyghur vendors: “Don’t think you ethnic minorities can outnumber us!”)

I’m walking a pig on my bike
(Today I play mah-jong. Tomorrow, poker. The day after tomorrow, I will just shoot the shit. You wanna join me?)

I’m walking a pig on my bike
(That old man worked a whole day selling vegetables, in the end he got a counterfeit note and made only 50 cents’ profit.)

I’m walking a pig on my bike
(Friend, where are you going? Where are you going now?)

I’m walking a pig on my bike

I’m walking ...

踏架脚车牵条猪

哎,朋友!你莫问我
有无见过海丰的汽车、摩托车
我经常看到它们非常潇洒
红灯绿灯当无影

哎,朋友!你莫问我
有没吃过假鸡蛋与地沟油
我条屌挂条命 在广州挥荡
吃颗炸弹也能过三顿

我踏架脚车牵条猪
我踏架脚车牵条猪
我踏架脚车牵条猪
