半斤八兩 - 許冠傑
Bun Gan Baat Loeng - Heoi Gun Git
Half a Catty, Eight Taels* - Samuel Hui

“出咗半斤力, 想話攞返足八兩.”
“Ceot zo bun gan lik, soeng waa lo faan zuk baat loeng." 
"After giving half a catty of effort, all I want is eight taels in return.”

* 斤/catty and 兩/tael (sometimes written as 両) are Chinese units of measurement. One tael is equal to 1 1/3 ounces, and is slightly less than 38 grams. There are 16 taels in one catty.
