    你給的文句有語法和意義不通的問題。

    You've been out riding bicycle for so long.才合理

    =你外出騎腳踏車好久了(該回家了吧?)。

    主詞+動詞+主詞補語

    riding bicycle是當述部「修飾語」的分詞構句

    ridin'是形聲字,因為riding的尾音(ㄣ)難發,有人會發成~in' (ㄥ),故歌詞裡常將~ing寫成 ~in',表示發音不同。

    been是be的過去分詞,通常不會單獨使用。只有現在分詞being可以形成分詞片語或分詞構句。原句缺主要動詞,所以應寫成:have been。

    fence是籬笆或柵欄,應該不會搭配riding來造句,好像不合理?

    2015-03-19 12:31:35 補充:

    to ride on the fence = To not take a stand on certain issues.

    =在某些事上採取騎牆,不選邊站的立場

    (查urbandictionary得到的解釋)

    和out(在外)搭配好像有邏輯的問題

    牛津網路字典只有 to sit on the fence的用法

    劍橋網路字典也只有 to sit on the fence

    所薋to ride on the fence可能是模倣前述詞語所造的

    網路上有人這麼解釋,不過看起來是滿牽強的。請參考。

    有可能受限於節拍,作詞者將you have been out, riding horse, and fixing fences for so long now這個長句壓縮的結果,用來指該男子比喻成像牛仔般遊走四方,不肯定下心來。原句裡只保留部分關鍵字,而成了歌詞的現狀。

    其中一段還用了撲克牌裡的「紅心女王」和「方塊女王」兩張牌。

    2015-03-21 15:54:50 補充:

    歌詞受限於節拍的輕重音位置和音節數目,常常有倒裝或省略現象,或選用特別短的字,我們不能用一般文法來決定其歌詞的正誤,但像這樣這段歌詞支離破碎造成句子如此不連貫的狀況,實屬少見。這是我個人的意見。

    You've been out ridin' fences for so long now.

    語出 The Eagles- DESPERADO

    ridin' fences 不論是作以下何解

    1.) 牛仔日常撿視圍籬,以防牛隻走失,或

    2.) 從 Queen of hearts 門前過門不入,(從前西部民居,屋前大都有木籬,還喜歡漆上白色)

    都意味著 "愛情亡命之徒" (Desperado) ,強打 "硬漢柔情" 形象,逃避 "愛情監獄",四處漂泊。甚或和 "Queen of Diamond" 逢場作戲,最終只有孤寂一生。

    It was Linda Ronstadt that popularized the song.

    ridin' fences 也有 figurative 的含意,歌詞最後一節

    "Come down from your fences, open the gate"

    意指 Stop being indecisive and come to "Queen of the hearts."

    Master AP, I agree with your translation, "ride on fence" (or ride the fence) means what you indicate. However, you just like to have the opportunity to take a swing at men huh! Be careful what you are hitting!

    Swing with? Wow!

    2015-03-19 12:20:05 補充:

    Where does my saying indicate "violent"?

    2015-03-19 14:35:30 補充:

    Master AP, I just pay attention, the question itself doesn't have "on" or "the" between "riding" and fences", but just "riding fences"

    2015-03-19 14:40:07 補充:

    Especially, it says "out riding fences," I think, we are all WRONG. It means, cowboy is out riding his horse and making sure the fences around his land are in good shape.

    Wow! Kookie has solved all the problems! Bravo!
