Lư và Lambretta

Ngày anh vừa mới lớn,
anh yêu Lư cuồng điên.
Nhưng v́ anh nhút nhát,
anh mất Lư về Liêm.

Thuở anh c̣n đi học,
anh thèm Lambretta.
Anh ra trường, có việc,
tưởng xe chẳng c̣n xa.

Nhưng rồi đời dâu bể,
xe cũng vuột tầm tay.
Tan tành hai mộng đẹp,
anh phiêu dạt trời Tây...

Hôm nay nh́n mộng cũ,
ḷng anh buồn lắt lay.
Xe xưa nh́n lại được,
nhưng sao nh́n em đây ?

Ly and Lambretta

I was then a young fellow,
just madly in love with Lư.
So meek and mild I was
that I lost her out to Liêm.

My school days were spent
daydreaming of a Lambretta.
With a good job after I graduated,
the scooter seemed not too far-fetched

Then life was suddenly turned upside down
when the war ended.
With both beautiful dreams broken,
I fled to the West.

Looking at the Lambretta today,
I am still sad about old dreams.
The scooter now I may,
but how can I find her again?
