1970s was a rebelling decade for me. I learned to appreciate the breadth and depth of English shows and was in the mood of challenging our tradition then. Fiddler on the Roof (屋顶的小提琴手）was one of my favourite shows.
In the film, Tevye said, "A fiddler on the roof. Sounds crazy, no? But here, in our little village of Anatevka, you might say every one of us is a fiddler on the roof trying to scratch out a pleasant, simple tune without breaking his neck. It isn't easy. You may ask 'Why do we stay up there if it's so dangerous?' Well, we stay because Anatevka is our home. And how do we keep our balance? That I can tell you in one word: tradition! "
They look so natural together
Just like two newlyweds should be
Is there a canopy in store for me?
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears
