风调雨顺民安乐,
People live happy when in time blows wind and falls rain,
都不似俺庄家快活。
But as we peasants none,s so cheerful and gay
桑蚕五谷十分收,
In bumper year of mulberry and grain
官司无甚差科。
When no official disturbs us everyday.
当村许下还心愿,
My vow fulfilled, I should perform the rural rite,
来到城中买些纸火。
So I go downtown to buy incense and candles bright.
正打街头过,
As I pass by the fair,
见吊个花碌碌纸榜,
I see colored ads hanging there.
不似那答儿闹穰穰人多。
Nowhere have I seen a more noisy crowd, nowhere!

见一个人手撑着椽做的门,
I see a man keeping the gate open with one hand,
高声的叫“请请”,
Crying loud: "Come in please, please!
道“迟来的满了无处停坐”。
Late, you'll find the house full and nowhere to sit but stand
说道“前截儿院本调风月,
First, actors will perform the Moon and Breeze,
背后么末敷演刘耍和”。
And then the play of an actor wellknown to this land.
高声叫:“赶散易得,
It's easy to find a place to enjoy and pause,
难得的妆合”。
But hard to win your hearty applause."

(3) The Last But Five
要了二百钱放过听咱,
I pay two hundred coins and I'm let in.
入得门上个木坡,
I enter, mount a wooden slope and hear a din.
见层层叠叠团圞坐。
I see an amphitheatre with seats in tier.
抬头觑是个钟楼模样,
Looking up, I see a towerlike stage appear;
往下觑却是人旋窝。
Looking down, I find the crowd like a whirlpool,
见几个妇女向台儿上坐,
And women musicians sitting on the stool.
又不是迎神赛社,
It is not a sacred procession long.
不住的擂鼓筛锣。
Why do I hear without cease drum and gong?

一个女孩儿转了几遭,
For several rounds a maiden comes forth and back,
不多时引出一伙。
Then she leads a group of four from the rear.
中间里一个央人货,
Among them there's a villain clown,
裹着枚皂头巾,
Whose head is wrapped in a hood black,
顶门上插一管笔,
With a brush on the ear;
满脸石灰
Whose face with lime is white,
更着些黑道儿抹。
Streaked with paint black as night.
知他待是如何过?
What will he do?
浑身上下,
From top to toe
则穿领花布直裰。
He wears a motley gown.

念了会诗共词,
He reads some verse
说了会赋与歌,
And sings some song,
无差错。
There's nothing wrong.
唇天口地无高下,
Who knows which's better and which worse?
巧语花言记许多。
I only remember many words sweet.
临绝末,
What at the end is said?
道了低头撮脚,
He bends his head and keeps close his feet.
爨罢将么拨。
After the prelude, the melodrama will be played.

一个妆做张太公,
One actor plays the role of grandpa old,
他改做小二哥,
Another acts the waiter of a wine shop.
行行行说向城中过。
They walk and talk of life,
见个年少的妇女,
And at the central place they stop,
向帘儿下立,
Seeing a young woman standing under the screen.
那老子用意铺谋,
The grandpa covets her as wife,
待取做老婆。
And asks the waiter to be go-between,
教小二哥相说合,
How much grain, rice, peas and wheat
但要的豆谷米麦,
She wants as dowry and how many feet
问甚布绢纱罗。
Of cloth, silk, satin and brocade, all told.

教太公往前挪,
Told to go forward, ay!
不敢往后挪,
The grandpa dare not backward go.
抬左脚不敢抬右脚,
Told to raise his foot high,
翻来覆去由他一个。
He dare not put it low.
太公心下实焦燥,
He turns back and forth as he is led,
把一个皮棒槌,
Anxious at heart, he starts
则一下打做两半个。
And breaks the leather-wrapped hammer into two parts.
我则道脑袋天灵破,
I mistake it for a broken head,
则道兴词告状,
And fear they'll go to court after,
刬地大笑呵呵。
But unexpectedly I hear them burst in laughter.
(8)
(8)
则被一胞尿,
Hard pressed to pass water, I make for the door,
爆的我没奈何。
Though I try to hold it back so as to see more.
刚捱刚忍更待看些儿个,
But how can I be set free?
枉被这驴颓笑杀我。
I am afraid these sons of bitch will laugh at me.
