An old man ambles up to them
Ernie: Hi there, are you Trev, Paul and Wei? I can't really see very clearly.
Paul: Yeah, that's us. Are you the guide from Nova Travel?
Ernie: Speak up, sonny! Hearing's not so good. Just call me Ernie. So what do you want to see?
Paul: We want to see local life.
Ernie: I know just the place. It's just around the corner, so we can walk there. [coughs]
Paul: OK. Well, where are we going to go?
Ernie: All you kids like shaking your booty, so we're going to a dance hall.

(续上期)

有位老人慢慢走向他们
尔尼:嗨,你们是崔佛、保罗跟小薇吗?我看不太清楚。
保罗:对,我们就是。你是诺瓦旅行社的导游?
尔尼:大声点,年轻人!听力不太好。叫我尔尼就好了。那你们想看些什么?
保罗:我们想看看当地的生活。
尔尼:我知道要去哪里。就在附近,所以我们可以走过去。(咳嗽)
保罗:好。所以我们要去哪里?
尔尼:你们这些小孩都喜欢跳舞,所以我们要去舞厅。


重点解说:

★ speak up 说话大声点;sonny是老人常常称呼年轻人的用语,大概等同‘小伙子’的意思
★ local (a.) 本地的,当地的
★ around the corner 在附近,在街角
★ shake booty 跳舞
★ dance hall (n.) 舞厅
★ amble (v.) 缓缓而行
★ hearing (n.) 听力,听觉

The Police established him as a world-renowned songwriter and singer. The trio Sting headed assumed the vanguard of contemporary music throughout the late 80s and early 90s. On his own, he has never ceased taking chances. The Dream of the Blue Turtles, Nothing Like the Sun, The Soul Cages, Ten Summoner's Tales, Brand New Day, Sacred Love and Inside, achieve a truly distinctive synthesis of personal expression and universal communication.

“警察”乐队使他成为世界知名的歌曲作者和歌手,这个由斯汀带领的三人乐队从20世纪80年代末期到90年代初期一直是现代音乐的先驱。他单飞后一直没有停止创作。他的专辑《蓝色海龟之梦》、《太阳最美》、《灵魂的牢笼》、《十个召集人的故事》、《崭新的一天》、《神圣的爱》和《内心》等,真正实现了个性表达和与世人沟通的独特融合。
