Songs -- 你瘦夠了嗎?- Joyce Cheng 鄭欣宜

你瘦夠了嗎?- Joyce Cheng 鄭欣宜

This new Joyce Cheng song was released in March. The song reminded us of All About That Bass from Meghan Trainor. They are both fighting the need to be skinny because there's beauty within everyone despite your appearance. Their songs deliver a strong message about body image because they have dealt with it first hand. I will just translate a little bit of Joyce's lyrics. 

蚊跳到 象都可跳到
不要講 又瘦掉兩磅就更好
纖瘦好 但她只吃草
而我正吃漢堡 
A fly can jump, but so can an elephant. 
No need to say it, but if you lose those two pounds, you'd be better
... She only eats grass and I only eat hamburgers. 

(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
當你 吃飽飯就沒人愛~嗎?

Are you skinny enough yet?Will you not find love once you eat until you're full?

The lyrics are pretty straightforward and Joyce proves them right with her flexibility and dance moves. While her music video is dark, Meghan Trainor used soft pastel colours. I actually did not know what her song was about when I saw the title until months after it came out. She's bubbly and tries to approach body image positively. Both of these singers are breaking the stereotype that all entertainers should be thin. Lots of people look up to the media and it's great to have these role models. Great job Joyce! 


《你瘦夠了嗎?》
作曲: 陳奐仁
填詞: 黃偉文
主唱: 鄭欣宜

踢躂 探戈 爵士舞
統統我一秒學到
不必擺出 你那驚嘆號

不只有掌~上舞
一噸也可以勁舞
根本精彩的 叫各有各的態度

蚊跳到 象都可跳到
不要講 又瘦掉兩磅就更好
纖瘦好 但她只吃草
而我正吃漢堡


(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
當你 吃飽飯就沒人愛~嗎?
(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
所以 你的魅力和自信
因減得加~?

可知有種美極美
真名叫卡~路里
不必sit-up 對世間獻媚

不必發觀眾脾氣
挑剔你可以別理
怎麽他保守 會變作你的禁忌

蚊會飛 象都可以飛
不要講 話再胖兩磅就要死
超重悲? 自卑心更悲!
人永遠要愛己!

(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
當你 吃飽飯就沒人愛~嗎?
(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
所以 你的魅力和自信
因減得加~?

誰話要顯得瀟灑
停在200克以下
神佛滿天多分岔

瀟灑 不會 只有 中碼

(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
當你 吃飽飯就沒人愛~嗎?
(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
空肚半生 問為何未怕
(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
只吃 半碗麵亦並無半~價
(國)你瘦夠了嗎?
請看 你的獨特和大氣 捨得減嗎~?
