Blowing In The Wind-Bob Dylan(1963)

How many roads must a man walk down
Before you call him a man?
How many seas must a white dove sail
Before she sleeps in the sand?
Yes, and how many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they're forever banned?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

どれほど道を歩かねばならないんだ
男と認められるために
どれほど海を航らねばならないんだ
砂に眠るために
どれほど大砲を打たねばならないんだ
それを禁止するために
友よ 答えは 風に吹かれて
答えは 風に吹き飛ばされて

Yes, and how many years can a mountain exist
Before it's washed to the sea?
Yes, and how many years can some people exist
Before they're allowed to be free?
Yes, and how many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

どれほど山は存在し続けなければいけないんだ
海に流されるまでに
それほど人々は存在し続けなければならないんだ
自由になるまでに
どれだけ頭を回さなければならないんだ
見ないふりをするために
友よ 答えは 風に吹かれて
答えは 風に吹き飛ばされて

Yes, and how many times must a man look up
Before he can see the sky?
Yes, and how many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
Yes, and how many deaths will it take 'till he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind

どれだけ見上げなくてはならないんだ
空を見るために
いくつ耳を持たねばならないんだ
叫びを聞くために
どれほど死なねばならないんだ
多くの死者を出す前に
友よ 答えは 風に吹かれて
答えは 風に吹き飛ばされて
