假日河马群--比利.柯林斯

假日河马群真不是一部电影的名称
但如果它是,我确定会看。
我爱它们的小短腿和大脑袋,
整个河马的外观。
成百的它们会在宽广,
缓慢流动的泥水河里嬉戏
我会在黑暗的一个街区剧场里
吃着我的爆米花
当它张开他们布满巨大短粗的牙齿
的大嘴巴时
我会喝着我的巨杯可乐。

我会在我的座位上
或水里和河马玩耍,
那就是它们的样子
确实是一部很棒的电影。
只有小气的评论者
才会问假日是为了什么?
is not really the title of a movie
but if it were I would be sure to see it.
I love their short legs and big heads,
the whole hippo look.
Hundreds of them would frolic
in the mud of a wide, slow-moving river,
and I would eat my popcorn
in the dark of a neighborhood theatre.
When they opened their enormous mouths
lined with big stubby teeth
I would drink my enormous Coke.

I would be both in my seat
and in the water playing with the hippos,
which is the way it is
with a truly great movie.
Only a mean-spirited reviewer
would ask on holiday from what?

当它张开他们布满巨大短粗的牙齿

我会喝着我的巨杯可乐。 人与动物相去几何

平林: 当它张开他们布满巨大短粗的牙齿

应该有点讽刺的意味

同假日联系起来,果然感到了轻微的讽刺
