about

Jasmine added Mandarin lyrics to Paul Desmond and Dave Brubeck's biggest hit from 1959.

lyrics

人们在这虚幻世界里做游戏,
他在做戏,她也做戏,
不知不觉他们都已经太入戏,
真也是戏,假也是戏,
哪些是真?啊—哪些是假? 
聪明的人睁开慧眼把它看仔细然后忘记,
你会看到有些是真,
有些是假何必在意?
到头来说只是一场戏。

People are playing their roles in this unreal world.
He is doing it, and she is doing it too.
They are so into pretending without noticing.
Is it real? Or is it not?
Which things are real and which are not?
Intelligent people open their inner eyes and recognize what’s real.
They choose to forget about what’s not.
People see some things are real and some are unreal.
Why do you care, if it’s just a drama?
