媽媽說很多事別太計較 / Mum says not to sweat it with the little things...
只是使命感找到了我 我睡不著 / But I'd been hit with a sense of conscience, I can't sleep...
如果說罵人要有點技巧 / If we need a little more "tact" / technique in scolding people... 
我會加點旋律你會覺得 超屌 / I will add some melody.. and you will feel... super DIAO (cool) ~!

我的槍不會裝彈藥 / My gun won't be loaded with gun powder...
所以放心不會有人倒 / So relax... there won't be anybody falling over...
我拍青蜂俠 不需要替身 / I filmed Green Hornet.. no need for a stunt double...
因為自信是我繪畫的顏料 / *Because self-confidence is the material for my drawing...

(*00:50... Peepz... This part didn't really make sense, any suggestions? I think it is... YIN LIAO instead of YAN LIAO.. which means.. BEVERAGE instead of MATERIAL... and HUI HUA.. could be CONVERSATION instead of DRAWING... so it would mean... self-confidence is my beverage for conversation... hmm...)

我做很多事背後的意義 遠離你們想象 / The reason why I do most stuff.. is beyond your imagination...

拍個電視純為了友情影響了現在的夢想 / Filming a TV series purely for friendship has affected my current dreams....
收視率再高也難抗衡我的偉大理想 / Regardless the viewership ratings... it will be difficult to contend my great ideals...  
因為我的人生無需再多一筆那獎項 / Because I don't need yet another award in my life...
我不知道何時變成了所謂的那榜樣 / I dunno when I'd become that so-called model / person-to-look-up-to...
被狗仔拍的那偽裝著要道歉模樣 / Shot by paparazzi.. that camouflage... apologizing look...
怎樣 / How...

(last 3 lines.. I"m not sure... but I think he means that... he doesn't realize that he'd changed... to somebody who'd apologize for being snapped by paparazzi... the comparison is probably back to his earlier days when he'd confronted the paparazzi...) 


我唱的歌詞要有點文化 因為隨時會被當教材 / I need culture in my lyrics, cos they could be taken as teaching material anytime...
CNN 能不能等英文好一點再放 時代雜誌封面能不能重拍 / Can CNN interview be released after my English improves... can I re-take the cover for Times magazine?
隨時隨地註意形象 / Have to watch my image all the time...
要控制飲食不然就跟杜莎夫人蠟像的我不像 / Have to control my food intake, else I won't look like my Madame Tussauds wax figure...
好萊塢的中國心願地上有很多手印腳印何時才能看見我的獎 / Hollywood Chinatown has many hand+foot prints.. when can i see my prize?

哦如果超人會飛 那就讓我在空中停一停歇 / Oh... if Superman can fly.. then let me take a short rest in the air...
再次俯瞰這個世界 會讓我 覺得好一些 / Once again overlooking this world.. will let me... feel a little better..
喔嗚喔 / Oh Woo Oh...
拯救地球好累 雖然有些疲憊的我還是會 / Saving the world is so tiring.. although I'm a little worn-out... I'll still (saving the world)..
不要問我哭過了沒 / Don't ask me if I'd cried or not...
因為超人不能流眼淚 / Because Superman can't cry...

** 02:30 Jay said something in Mandarin... below translated by angeland @Shammy12 ...
--> He says "if you just read the lyrics without listening to the melody, "Superman Can't Fly" is a rap song of critique. In foreign countries, these song are usually with heavy hip hop / rock elements, but I made it different into a warm melody, just like "Listen to Mama's Words" (聽媽媽的話) and "Dad, I'm back" (爸, 我回來了). This song reflects my heart and what I have gone through in these ten years."

唱歌要拿最佳男歌手 / When singing.. must receive Best Male Singer award...
拍電影也不能只能得最佳新人 / When filming, can't just receive Best Newcomer award...
你不參加頒獎典禮就是沒禮貌 / If you don't attend award ceremony.. you're impolite..
你去參加就是代表你很在乎 / If you attend, it means you care about it a lot...
得獎時你感動落淚 /  If you are moved to tears when you receive your award...
人家就會覺得你誇張做作 / They will feel you are exaggerating...
你沒表情別人就會說太囂張 / If you are expressionless, they will say you're arrogant..
如果你天生這表情 / If you're born with "this" expression... (whatever the expression may be...)
那些人甚至會怪你媽媽 / Then they might even blame your mum~!!
結果最後是別人在得獎 / If eventually somebody else receives the award...
你也要給予充分的掌聲與微笑 / You'd also have to be full of smiles and applause...
開的車不能太好 / Can't drive too good a car...
住的樓不能太高 / Can't stay in too high an apartment..
我到底是一個創作歌手還是好人好事代表 / So.. am I a creative singer, or Mr. Good Deeds?

專輯一出就必須是冠軍 / Once the album is out, it has to be ranked No.1...
拍了電影就必須要大賣 / Movie must be a sell-out..
只能說當超人真的好難 / I can only say.. it's really tough to be superman..

哦如果超人會飛 那就讓我在空中停一停歇 / Oh... if Superman can fly.. then let me take a short rest in the air...
再次俯瞰這個世界 會讓我 覺得好一些 / Once again overlooking this world.. will let me... feel a little better..
喔嗚喔 / Oh Woo Oh...
拯救地球好累 雖然有些疲憊的我還是會 / Saving the world is so tiring.. although I'm a little worn-out... I'll still (saving the world)..
不要問我哭過了沒 / Don't ask me if I'd cried or not...
