《橄榄树》

词: 三毛
曲: 李泰祥
歌手:  齐豫

不要问我从哪里来
我的故乡在远方
为什么流浪
流浪远方 流浪

为了天空飞翔的小鸟
为了山间轻流的小溪
为了宽阔的草原
流浪远方 流浪

还有还有
为了梦中的橄榄树 橄榄树
不要问我从哪里来
我的故乡在远方
为什么流浪
为什么流浪远方
为了我梦中的橄榄树

First, let's read the lyrics.

English lyrics:

There is a farmer,who walks on the road,
stranger,why do you wander?

Don't ask from where I have come,
my home is far,far away
Why do you wander so far,
wander so far,wander so far?
For the little bird free I wander,
for the meadow green and wide,
for the mountain high and blue
I wander,wander so far
Then,is there more?
Yes,for the olive tree of my dream.
Don't ask from where I have come,
my home is far,far away.
Why do you wander,
why do you wander so far,far away?
For ~~the~~O~~live tree of my dream.
Don't ask from where I have come,
my home is far,far away,
why do you wander so far,
wander so far,wander so far
