本期我们要分享的歌曲是champagne problem by Taylor Swift
Bustling crowds or silent sleepers
In British English, a sleeper is a carriage on a train containing beds for passengers to sleep in at night, or a section of such a carriage. The usual American words are sleeping car for the carriage and roomette for the section.
①All right. You want 21 hard sleeper tickets.
②I usually go up to London on the sleeper.
sleeper在这里作为熟词生义，当然它的本义是“睡觉的人”，如“a light sleeper”,睡不沉的人。
未料到获得成功的剧、书、人等”（If you describe someone or something as a sleeper, you mean that they unexpectedly become successful, often after a long period of being inactive or unknown.）
Menno Meyjes, a young Dutch write
Crestfallen on the landing
If you look crestfallen, you look sad and disappointed about something.
When he heard that he had failed the exam, he hung his head looking crestfallen.
Champagne problems are problems of the rich and famous that we would all be so lucky to have, having to decide between two completely awesome things that both lead to an ideal outcome, and not technically a real problem at all. (Source: macmillandictionary.com)
①David has champagne problems: to go skiing in Switzerland or join his friends in Dubai.
②Rose is having a champagne problem… she can’t decide on which car to buy: a BMW or a Mercedes-Benz.
Your sister splashed out on the bottle
If you splash out on something, especially on a luxury, you buy it even though it costs a lot of money.
①He wanted to splash out on a new car.
②Can you afford to splash out a little? Is your budget unlimited?
And soon they'll have the nerve to deck the halls
If something is decked with pretty things, it is decorated with them.
①Ingrid was decked out in her Sunday best.
②The streets are decked with a sea of red flags.
If the deck is a bridge's surface, is it redundant to say deck the bridge.
如果甲板是桥梁的表面，那么说" 在桥上铺上甲板" 则显得多余。
She'll patch up your tapestry that I shred
A tapestry is a large piece of heavy cloth with a picture sewn on it using coloured threads.
①On the tapestry are depicted some biblical scenes.
②Oh, yes. And the tapestries and the draperies.
If you shred something such as food or paper, you cut it or tear it into very small, narrow pieces.
①There is not a shred of truth in it.
②The cat tore the paper to shreds.
