From the Wong Kar-wai film In the Mood for Love (Chinese: 花樣年華). The Chinese title, meaning “the time of blossoms” (a metaphor for the fleeting time of youth, beauty and love) derives from this lovely song of the same name by Zhou Xuan from a 1946 film:
Gramophone recording 周璇-不要唱吧 (1947).
Word you said too elegant
Turn, do not sing, do not sing!
Self-love and love
Sound they say is too nauseating
Easily and not great
Majestic and frightening
Solemn nobody loves it
Not to sing, do not sing!
Do not open so people curse
Do not open to avoid being criticized
Do not sing do not sing!
