JERUSALEM/SCHOOL HYMN
JERUSALEM/SCHOOL HYMN(版本2)
Charles Hubert Parry(1848-1918)作曲,歌詞是William Blake(1757-1827)的詩作 "Jerusalem",Edward Elgar(1857-1934)改編為管弦樂合唱曲。原詩"Jerusalem":

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England's pleasant pastures seen?
And did the Countenance Divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark Satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold:
Bring me my arrows of desire:
Bring me my spear: O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England's green and pleasant land.

校歌"School Hymn"的歌詞基本上與原詩"Jerusalem"一樣,只是以"Hong Kong"取代了原詩的"England"。下面是"School Hymn"的歌詞:

And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon Hong Kong's mountains green?
And was the holy Lamb of God
In Hong Kong's crowded cities seen?
And did the countenance divine
Shine forth upon our clouded hills?
And was Jerusalem builded here
Among those dark satanic mills?

Bring me my bow of burning gold!
Bring me my arrows of desire!
Bring me my spear!
O clouds, unfold!
Bring me my chariot of fire!
I will not cease from mental fight,
Nor shall my sword sleep in my hand,
Till we have built Jerusalem
On Hong Kong's hills and city land.

FINLANDIA
西貝流士(Sibelius, 1865-1957)的交響詩(symphonic poem)作品《芬蘭頌》。

DON'T CRY FOR ME ARGENTINA
Madonna主唱。歌詞:

It won't be easy, you'll think it strange
When I try to explain how I feel
That I still need your love after all that I've done
You won't believe me
All you will see is a girl you once knew
Although she's dressed up to the nines
At sixes and sevens with you

I had to let it happen, I had to change
Couldn't stay all my life down at heel
Looking out of the window, staying out of the sun
So I chose freedom
Running around, trying everything new
But nothing impressed me at all
I never expected it to

Chorus:
Don't cry for me Argentina
The truth is I never left you
All through my wild days
My mad existence
I kept my promise
Don't keep your distance   

And as for fortune, and as for fame
I never invited them in
Though it seemed to the world they were all I desired
They are illusions
They are not the solutions they promised to be
The answer was here all the time
I love you and hope you love me
Don't cry for me Argentina   

(Chorus)   

Have I said too much?
There's nothing more I can think of to say to you
But all you have to do is look at me to know
That every word is true
