lyrics

眉畫嘴抹胭脂紅 黑齒塗齊
粉面紅唇展豔姿 目笑亂亂飛
Sitting in front of the mirror,
she cries as usual
Still, she puts on a perfect makeup,
and steps on the stage with smile

看這尪仔的命 每日踅呀踅無停煞
親像阮的每工抹面戴著尪仔面笑瞇瞇
這尪仔的命 為別人無為自己活
戴著尪仔面的我
Look! What a pretty geisha!
So gorgeous, so graceful!
She captivates me with a song,
sung by her pure soul
Look! What a miserable geisha!
With no escape,
She fights forlornly against her fate

尪仔面 生著真美
戴著伊送出又迎入
尪仔面 是阮毋是
日子踅煞 已經袂記
“Masked doll” - that is the name I call her
She smiles sweetly to the patrons around
“Masked doll” - that is the name she is called
Does she realize or not the good old days are gone?

尪仔面 生著真美
戴著伊送出又迎入
尪仔面 是阮毋是
日子踅煞 已經拍毋見
“Masked doll” - that is the name I call her
She smiles sweetly to the patrons around
“Masked doll” - that is the name she is called
Does she realize or not the good old days are gone?

- 陪 笑嘛毋是真
- 人情冷暖 攏 看真輕
- 脂 粉下的風塵
- 迷茫的捘著 伊的後生
- Hide sadness behind a smile
- Conceal emotions with a denial
- Who is the real me?
- I wish I could tell!

看這尪仔的命 每日踅呀踅無停煞
親像阮的每工抹面戴著尪仔面笑瞇瞇
這尪仔的命 為別人無為自己活
戴著尪仔面的我
Look! What a pretty geisha!
So gorgeous, so graceful!
She captivates me with a song,
sung by her pure soul.
Look! What a miserable geisha!
With no escape,
She fights forlornly against her fate
